Adapt IHT Portfolios

An Ethically Focused IHT Offering

Inheritance Tax (IHT) legislation, set against property values, means this tax remains a challenge for many. Our flagship IHT solution uses Business Relief (BR) for a swifter route to IHT exemption. Each client can choose from four model portfolios accessing BR-qualifying investments. These include options aligned with ethical investment concerns.

We're pleased to announce that you can now apply online for our Blackfinch Adapt IHT portfolios, allowing you to help clients pass on their wealth free from Inheritance Tax.

Key benefits


Clients have the choice of four model portfolios. This means each can find what’s right for them in terms of sustainable investing, their overall objectives and their risk profile.

Clients retain access to and control of capital, enabling withdrawals if their situation changes. They can also take regular payments or leave capital invested.
