Blacktower was founded in 1986 by our Managing Director, John Westwood in the UK. The business opened its first office on the European mainland in the Algarve ten years later, and Gibraltar and our Spanish offices followed not long after that. Since then, the business footprint has expanded exponentially and we now have a global presence, with offices all over Europe, the UK, and a few years ago we expanded into the Americas as well.
Our service would typically start with a first meeting, during which we go through a person’s current situation and future objectives. From there we would put together a personal plan; taking into consideration the family situation, tax and residency position, any investment experience and how involved the client wants to be, to name a few criteria. We can assist anyone from a young entrepreneur wanting to start saving for retirement to the person already in their retirement who is looking for a cautious plan for the money currently sitting in their bank account, not earning any interest. At the core of everything that we do is maximising growth for our clients whilst reducing their tax position wherever possible.
