The specific role of our Financial Planners is to get to know you and understand your life goals and objectives before recommending a tailored financial plan to help get you there.

Our Investment Managers have a different focus. They dedicate themselves to investing your money effectively so that you have the funds to meet your goals. They will build an investment portfolio based not only on your needs, but also on your appetite for risk, capacity for loss, and your timeline.

What is wealth management? Is it right for you?

Wealth management allows you to put together a plan so that your finances can support your ambitions in life. And that can mean different things to different people. For example, you might be approaching your later years and seeking advice on how you can prepare for retirement or the steps you can take to provide for your loved ones.

You may be one of the 15.6 million UK adults who have more than £10,000 in investible assets, or you might be thinking about making your money more tax-efficient. Our wealth management services cover all of the above and more, and our expert team will be more than happy to discuss your needs and goals.

Wealth management - frequently asked questions

  • Why do people seek wealth management advice?

    When we make any major decisions in life, it makes sense to call on experts in the field. Wealth management is no different. You need sound, impartial advice from those who have the experience and depth of knowledge to help you.

    Most people seek wealth management advice for exactly that reason. They want to place their trust in the hands of a professional whom they know will have their best interests at heart. They’re looking for clarity and transparency at all times, as well as a clear explanation of the various options available to them.

    The mass uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic means it’s more important than ever for wealth management providers to understand their clients’ needs and future plans. People want assurances that they’re being looked after, and that’s what we always strive to achieve.

  • What are the benefits of wealth management?

    There are obvious advantages to wealth management, primarily seeing a return on your investment. But the benefits extend far beyond a purely financial scope. Our services mean you can gain a greater understanding of the landscape, which will help you to make decisions in the future.
