Format: Paperback
Wealth management is commonly associated with investment and tax planning, and as such it can be a dry and technical subject. However, many leading firms now embrace a different approach to wealth management with the focal point centres on helping clients define and lead a more meaningful and fulfilling life (known as life planning). The publication of Jason Butler's book on Wealth Management is therefore highly significant, reflecting the increasing popularity of this approach in the UK, where the client's goals, dreams, values and aspirations act as the driving force of financial planning.

Written by one of the UK's highly successful financial planners with more than 20 years of experience in the profession, this book offers a unique perspective on wealth management, and it is greatly enriched by the inclusion of real life stories and personal experiences. The book is very easy, interesting and energizing to read, and serves as an inspirational financial blueprint for the pursuit of a meaningful life where philanthropy assumes an integral part. The author succeeds in making a serious subject like wealth management a light and enjoyable read, and in spurring the reader to reflect on their own goals, values, dreams and life priorities. This personal relevance gives the book a distinctive quality.

This book will help inspire our students studying Banking and Financial Planning degree and other personal finance modules at the University of Northampton. It will also be of great interest to anyone wishing to acquire the requisite knowledge to improve their financial well-being and gain clarity on their values and what is important to them in life.

This book is a really easy read and a good way to update yourself on all those areas about money which you really ought to know about but never give enough time to focus on properly because life's just too busy. It's great because you can dip in and out and choose to read chapters you are most interested in first. What I also like is that it's very thought provoking. Definitely worth reading, I highly recommend it.

Very informative and easy to read overview for those with £1,000,000 or more in assets but no or little financial background. It helped me to begin to grapple with the 'why' of wealth as well as just making more of it. The only thing I disliked was a couple of omissions: an acknowledgement that tax brings benefit and can result in a flourishing society and secondly that the chapter on Philanthropy is rather thin (and left right to the end of the book). It is only 16 pages in a 300 page book. I felt this could be given more emphasis. In this context I was surprised that there was no acknowledgement that faith groups have a major impact on giving and ethical investment. Well worth reading.

Format: Paperback
This book helps to promote a new approach to financial planning and management of an individual's wealth. The principles explained in this book are equally relevant to people of modest means, as to the super-rich. There has been a growing awareness in the past decade of the short-comings of the financial services industry, and the need to find a new solution to provide fairness and value for the investor.

Wealth Management helps to set out the arguments on both sides, and guides the reader to a conclusion that there is a better way to manage their wealth and plan for their futures. Financial markets can be made to work for ordinary people as savers and investors. Markets can match the hard-earned savings and capital of the ordinary person, and put this to work for the use of and benefit for companies all over the world. Wealth Management helps to show all investors how they can achieve this without suffering the high charges, excesses and false promises which we get from the traditional financial services industry.

Wealth Management plays an important part in debating these crucial issues, and in working towards a revolution which will result in fairer treatment and better value for all investors.

I found the book to be very useful and thought provoking about the many aspects of personal financial arrangements. All too often this type of work is obsessed with giving detailed facts without any accompanying context and although there is quite naturally a little chest beating by the author it is obvious that this derives from a pleasure and satisfaction in his work with his own clients.
The book will serve as a useful prompt and reference book for many and will undoubtedly lead those who read it towards a more organised and effective personal financial life.

I have always been interested in money, investing and wealth related topics. This is my first review of any book however I was drawn to write after reading the review from "rafferty" who from my perspective must have been reading a different book to the one that I read (or for some reason be biased against the author given the time they must have spent writing their review). The review by Nigel Bourke was spot on. Too few people actually take a broad holistic approach to their wealth management and with this book and with the free downloads I think that the high net worth investor will find much to benefit them. I often read the Sunday Times and William Kay's endorsement prompted me to read the book and I for one am delighted that I did. No book can ever go into the detail of every subject but this book delivers and it is in my opinion worthy of the title of a "definitive introduction to getting the most out of your finances" (back cover comment). The website is obviously going through the development phase and will no doubt be addressing many of the issues in a Q&A format that the book simply couldn't cover in depth. To me the objectiveness of the book is epitomised by the fact that on the website there are a number of competing wealth management firms identified which again leads me to conclude that the author has the high net worth investors' interests uppermost in mind. Jason Butler has distilled 20 years of experience into an excellent book.
