If you are a British expatriate, or a French inpatriate in France and require legal guidance – from wealth management to tax exemption solutions and pensions advice – our expertise will offer you first-class solutions.
We belong to a specific profession in France called Conseil en Gestion de Patrimoine (CGP). This means that we are highly qualified and regulated to provide analyses and solutions across financial, legal, social and real estate matters.

What our Clients say
I am extremely happy that I chose Daniel Butcher as the financial adviser to arrange the transfer of my UK pension to France.
He is perfectly bilingual and understands well the tax and regulatory requirements of both countries.
Moreover, his personal style and dedication to the task have been outstanding.
He has always been available for me and he meets his commitments reliably whilst clearly communicating with me on any issues or obstacles that had to be overcome. I recommend him most strongly.
Daniel Butcher kindly helped me in transferring my UK pension to a QROPS.
I had worked with Daniel in the past as he had already helped me in transferring a smaller fund to France where I now reside.
I find him easy to work with and he makes sure to take time to explain the different steps in the process and is always there to answer any questions.
He also knows the French and the UK tax and pension systems very well.
Our permanent move from the UK to France took almost 4 years to complete. We were in touch with Daniel for much of that time. I am from a Financial Services background myself & found his knowledge & expertise on both markets invaluable.
He delivered tailored advice to meet our specific financial needs. In addition he passed on very useful advice on other matters such as Healthcare, Will planning & even Pet Insurance. His manner is engaging, reassuring & measured. There are very real differences between the UK & French regimes. In particular managing timescales. In our opinion professional advice is required. In summary we would fully recommend Daniel to look after your interests both pre & post sale.
