You

You are concerned about your finances and are prepared to actively work with a fee based firm of  independent planners and financial advisers who have your long term interests at heart.

You want to ensure that they view you as a person with hopes , dreams and worries rather than just a customer.

You want to ensure that the firm you work with is remunerated in a manner which means their advice is unbiased and in your long term interest.

You want your planner to provide you with outstanding service so you will be comfortable in recommending their services to people you care about.

Q: What types of people become clients?

A: Most new working clients have overall assets in excess of £500,000 including the equity value of their home. They are referred to us for advice relating to our speciality in investment portfolio management, business advice and inheritance tax planning. These are considered to be the most difficult areas of financial planning and so require specialist advisers. Even so, we are happy to help most people who meet our client criteria.

 The following assets may be included within an assessment:

  • Current equity in their main residence and other property in the UK or abroad
  • Current saleable value of their business shares, if applicable
  • Total current value of cash, pensions and investments less the value of any debts/mortgages
  • Current value of other assets such as royalties or trust funds.

What if I don’t fall into one of these categories?

We do help younger clients who are mainly referred to us by their parents. However if your annual joint income exceeds £100,000 or you are a successful business owner or professional it’s worth having a chat. Please contact us and we will take it from there.
