Founded and led by Mark Evans, a fully qualified Independent Financial Adviser and Chartered Financial Planner, Beaumont has grown to deliver unrivalled levels of service to our clients, many of whom have trusted us to look after their finances for over 15 years.
We employ salaried, fully qualified, trained advisers – not commission-hungry staff who are incentivised to ‘sell’. No call centres, no ‘product’ sales, no smoke and mirrors – You enjoy a ‘one stop shop’ for your financial questions, delivered by people you get to know, like and trust, and who take the time to get to know you, your approach to your finances, and your financial aspirations inside-out.
Specialising in advice for directors, business owners and private clients we enjoy a client retention rate of over 97% year-on-year – testimony to our unique approach and levels of service and client satisfaction.
Beaumont can work with you to advise you and offer a level of input appropriate to your needs. Some clients like to be ‘hands on’ and work with us to make investment decisions based on in-depth knowledge and understanding of the markets and risk factors. Others prefer to let us do all the work. Wherever you sit between those positions, we can help you to learn more about the world of money, investments, pensions and wealth creation and protection, and help you to achieve your financial goals – both long term and shorter term. Our objective is to enable you to reach your financial aims and provide you with the lifestyle you expect, in a tax efficient manner, throughout your lifetime and ultimately protecting your assets to hand on to the next generation and beyond.
