Downing Estate Planning Service


The Downing Estate Planning Service provides you with the opportunity to obtain inheritance tax (IHT) relief on your subscription after only two years (subject to conditions), while maintaining ownership and control of your capital.

The service aims to preserve your capital and achieve moderate growth over the medium term by focusing on businesses in two distinct areas: asset-backed sectors and energy projects.
