Travel to paradise
When money is no object, a trip to one of these idylls needs to be on your bucket list. 2016 was a challenging year for a number of reasons, so take the time to visit somewhere you have never visited before and experience something new.

Dinner to die for

While you’re in the mood for exclusive travel experiences, ensure you dine at one or more of the following restaurants around the world. There are few things in the world more worth spending money on than fine dining. Some fantastic examples from around the world are:

1. Masa, New York City: Guests are expected to dress casually and prepare for a 3-hour, calming dining extravaganza of fresh dishes straight from the kitchen. The menu? What menu?
2. Gordon Ramsay, London: Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has been the recipient of 3 Michelin stars since 2001. No mean feat. If you’re feeling particularly lavish, there is an £11,000 bottle of 1900 Chateau Margaux 1er cru classé on offer.
3. Sublimotion, Ibizia: This is the world’s most expensive restaurant and is described by head chef Paco Rancero as “radically different”. With 20 courses on the menu, virtual reality headsets as part of the experience, and projections are layered on all surfaces. The food is delicious, too. Watch this video to learn more.

If you have worked hard to afford the finer things in life, make sure you take the time in 2017 to really savour those special moments with your loved ones. Contact a member of our financial services team to see how we can help you achieve your financial goals.

"Totally recommend
Excellent company to work with, Jacqueline Elliot has dealt with numerous mortgage reviews for us and always reminds us in plenty of time to renew and make the proceeds as easy as possible. Can not recommend highly enough."

"Andrew Francis has just completed a re mortgage for me on a property I own in London. I live in Bournemouth so good communication is really important. Andrew and Jennie have been excellent during what was a protracted transaction due to the additional requirements from the lender and their appointed conveyance solicitors. Despite unhelpful delays by the lender , I felt IMC were always on hand to negotiate on my behalf and bring the transaction to as swift a close as possible. My cousin is an IFA who I'd naturally automatically go to for advice and products but he recommended I stick with IMC as he couldn't better the deal and lenders they had available. I normally begrudge paying a fee to an IFA when I know they will also be paid by the lender but to be fair in this case, they earnt it and some! Thanks guys. I'm now £600 pm better off for the next five years ! 👍🏻😁 Chris Amey."

"Our mortgage adviser Andrew Francis is brilliant. When we first met him we were first time buyers with very limited knowledge about the process of buying a first home in the UK. However, Andrew guided us through the process with his vast knowledge and professionalism. We had to recently re- mortgage our flat, Andrew got in touch with us well in advance he presented us with the best options for us and made the whole procedure painless. Of course, we were a lot more relaxed this time around, as we already knew that we are in good hands. Thank you for your help, Andrew!"
