Newcastle-based Blackett Walker Independent Financial Advisers has launched new sister company BW Medical Accountants Ltd. With over twenty years experience in wealth management, the financial firm, which manages a client portfolio worth over £150million and regarded as a national specialist in NHS pensions, has launched the niche accountancy practice designed purely for medical professionals across the UK.
Two of the region's leading medical accountants and tax experts are the driving force behind the new enterprise, having previously worked together for over 13 years in the accountancy profession. As Head of Medical Services, Keith Taylor will lead BW Medical Accountants, backed by over 32 years experience in the financial industry, latterly delivering accountancy services to over 145 GP practices and healthcare professionals across the UK.
Keith said: "The company brings with it highly experienced specialist knowledge of the healthcare sector at all levels, and through the very close working relationship with NHS pension specialist Kevin Walker and his team at Blackett Walker Independent Financial Advisers, we are able to work with medical professionals from qualification throughout their working career through to retirement."
Peter Waller brings over 35 years in the accountancy profession to his role as Head of Tax at the new company. He said: "I believe it is the strength of the team as a whole that is one of our biggest assets, as we have known and worked with each other for many years, some as long as 20 years. We chose to work together as we share the same values and focus on delivering an exceptional service. We have the knowledge to provide a full service focused solely on the needs of the healthcare sector."
Suzanne Tait, Chartered Management Accountant will support Keith with the delivery of the accountancy services. She said: "Medical professionals have very specific requirements, so our services are not simply about compliance but rather the strategic advice we can provide. Through the close working relationship with our sister company and their expertise in NHS pensions, our accountancy and tax clients will be able to benefit from a holistic approach to their finances. It's a fantastic opportunity for the company to deliver an unparalleled service to our clients."
