Our clients come in all shapes and sizes. Grandparents looking to preserve and transfer assets for their loved ones. Hard working professionals who may be great at their job but need help to bring order to their own finances. People approaching retirement who want a clear path to get there and advice about how to keep financially secure when they do. None of our clients are the same or even stay the same. Even when we do get to know someone and work with them for years, life happens and we often find that our clients need help with something entirely different from the original challenge that they came to us with.
You might not know at the moment what your financial objectives might be and that’s OK. We always look at your personal circumstances to work with you to give you a clear summary of your current financial position and the steps that you can take to achieve your plans and goals.
We ask a wide variety of questions about aspects of your life that you might think are unrelated to the reason for approaching us. This is because even if you only want to look at one particular issue, such as taking a tax-free lump sum from your pension, any financial decisions that you make can have consequences that need to be considered.
Why might you want to pay for investment advice or financial planning? If you are super-organised couldn’t you just do it yourself? Yes, the short answer is that you could. But there is a lot to understand and keep up to date with. Tax and pension regulations are constantly changing, as are the markets and your investments. It can be very hard to make and implement such big decisions without help. We can help you to understand and make sense of your finances, put in place investment plans for the future and crucially, monitor progress to make sure that you stay on track.
