About Michael

Michael Hiner 

Managing Director, Asset Protection Specialist 

Mike Hiner CEmap CErerSpecialisms: Estate Planning

Having worked in financial services since 2000 as a Mortgage Advisor, in 2006 I took the decision to become self-employed and make my own destiny in the world of mortgages. After a spell as a broker for a local company, I decided to branch out and set up a limited company specialising in mortgages.

After a successful few years in the mortgage market, it became apparent to me that people spent so long saving for their long-awaited homes and the majority protected these with life assurance against death or critical illness but the conversation ended more or less at that point. This didn't sit comfortably with me and I wanted to ensure people's homes, life savings and chattels were fully protected for future generations to come.

Having spent many years saving for a home, decorating it, lovingly filling it with furniture and items of their choice, potentially welcoming a family and saving towards the golden years of retirement, it became apparent to me that not enough was being done by myself or other advisers to protect this wealth, however big or small for the futures generations to come.

In 2014 I started offering Estate Planning services and Will writing services through my association with CTT Group, to provide expertise on estate planning. CTT Group were my chosen association as they are regarded as the industry leader in Estate Planning and Asset Protection as well as being a trust corporation.

They are an established company encompassing all the attributes I hold as an adviser. 

Having now worked with CTT Group for over 8 years, I have built an established and highly regarded business providing expert advice/recommendations to clients supporting their future plans for generations to come in all areas of estate planning and Asset Protection.

Contact me today for an initial call about your estate planning. London, Wiltshire and the home counties are the main areas where we work, so please do get in touch.

Strategic Wills Process

The initial call gives an opportunity to discuss your situation and your objectives.  It also allows us to see how we can best help you.

The discovery meeting is all about you.  We will take the time to listen to your personal, family, and business situations to get a better understanding of your specific estate planning requirements.  We will ask you questions to better understand what is really important to you, as well as fully understanding the legacy you wish to leave. 

Finally, we will explain the services of Strategic Asset Protection and show you how we can help you and what the next steps will be. 

Please get in touch with our estate planners now to arrange an initial call.

Following your Discovery Meeting, we will prepare your recommendation report which sets out our recommendations, scope of work, timescales and the legal fees you will pay for our services. 

Once we have your agreement, we will put your plans into motion for you. We take care of all of the administration and keep you updated regularly throughout the document drafting process. Order summaries of your estate planning will be sent to you for your review and once you have approved, the final documentation will be prepared, reviewed and legally approved. We will then be in contact to arrange the Signing Meeting and provide further guidance.

So that legal documents are valid they need to be signed and dated correctly.  At the signing meeting you will need two independent witnesses present to witness the signing of the wills and once signed to documents will be legally effective. 

After the signing we will provide an execution statement giving the full names and addresses of the witnesses as proof that the wills were executed correctly and legally.

Once all the documents have been signed they will be professionally stored for safe keeping.  Storage certificates will be provided to ensure everyone is clear where the documents are stored.

Once the process has been completed it is very important that the documents are updated as events happen.  Regular reviews are important to make sure the planning stays up to date.  We will communicate with you from time to time to ensure your planning is up to date.

Mark Leadbeater -

Mike has been absolutely amazing! He has made the whole process so simple - we most certainly would have been lost without him. Mike is very knowledgeable, patient, and efficient. Highly recommend his services. Thank you, Mike

Mr Lewin -

I recently decided to set up my Will and following on from looking at a hand full of providers, I decided to use Strategic Wills, Mike Hiner picking up with this. The process was simple, quick and totally pain free! Mike is brilliant, really helpful, professional and made everything so easy (he’s a nice bloke too). They have a great on-line booking service, which literally took me a minute to book an initial meeting with Mike (Strategic Wills will send you a link) and you choose a date and time. I really thought that sorting out my Will would be really time consuming and difficult. I was totally wrong and would highly recommend Strategic Wills and Mike. Thinking this would also cost me a lot of money, of which it didn’t and what’s more, I felt that the service was absolute value for money. Great guy, thank you so much for sorting this out!

Mr Warhurst -

Mike at Strategic Asset Protection was very professional gave us the best advice 1000% better than the usual free will guys. Helped us plan everything from Will to lasting power of attorney, estate planning etc. I would highly recommend seeking his professional advice, approach etc. Don't be penny wise pound foolish planning your hard-earned wealth correctly makes much more sense with professional help then giving it away to tax Man when you are not around.

Mr Shah -

Mike is a great person to work with great knowledge on the subject area and very patient with a customer who has no idea about assets protections and laws etc.
