We are advice-led and operate on a fee basis. We have been awarded Corporate Chartered Financial Planner status and are members of the Society of Pensions Consultants reflecting the breadth of senior specialist qualifications held by the directors and staff. We pride ourselves on the integrity of the advice and solutions provided and this is reflected by the duration of many of the client relationships.

The large majority of our new clients are introduced by other professional concerns such as accountants, lawyers, investment managers and HR consultants or by referral from existing clients.

We provide financial planning advice to individuals, trusts and corporate clients.

The service provided to individuals includes personal retirement planning, pension benefit commencement, investment and estate planning.

The service provided to trusts includes investment advice, cashflow management and often employee benefit services.

Employee benefit advice to companies and partnerships and charities includes group pension provision and the commonly provided associated staff benefit arrangements. We also provide advice in further specialist areas which includes pension and retirement planning for directors and partners

How we do it

The services are provided via specialist teams supporting the respective areas of Personal Financial Planning and Employee Benefit Services. Each client has a dedicated adviser and personal service team consisting of usually two or three qualified and experienced staff available to assist. This approach provides continuity and the in-depth coverage which clients benefit from and appreciate.

We have and will continue to invest heavily in market leading systems and specialist support to deliver services to our clients.
