What is wealth management?

Wealth management combines financial and investment advice aiming to improve your financial situation and meet your goals. It is the ability of our advisers to deliver a full range of financial services and products suited to our clients, whilst also offering professional bespoke advice.

What is financial advice?

It is advice offered by a fully qualified Independent Financial Adviser who suggests and offers services to clients based around their financial situation, and to meet their financial goals. This can cover anything from pensions and retirement planning to portfolio management and investments. In order to provide financial advice, advisers need to have completed specific qualifications and training dependent on the type of advice which is being provided. All our advisers are level 4 qualified and hold the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.

What makes you different from other financial advisers?

We are experts in wealth management, with all of our Independent Financial Advisers trained in-house and employed on a salary. Therefore, they are not driven by commission.

How much do your services cost?

I already have a company or individual managing my finances - is it difficult to change?

Not at all and we are happy to advise you every step of the way.

Where are your offices located? Do I need to come to you?
