My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
We've lived together for around 10 years. We have a daughter. The value of the assets are currently around £500k. In 10 years they could be worth 50 times that.

What income do you each have?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK. We co-own the home. It's worth £500,000. My income is £80K. Hers is around £60K. We have a company together and our income comes into that. It's not the same company as the one I have shares in.

Am I just paying the one-time £19 charge for this? Just to check.
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
I will ask customer service sto check what you have agreed toIn the mean time what is the current value of the investment that you wish to protect?
