Our Process…

Complimentary Discovery Meeting…

This is where we get to know you, establishing your aims and objectives. This will also include assessing your views on risk and obtaining information about you. Following this meeting we will have a clear understanding of your requirements, and in turn we can advise you of our service propositions and what you can expect from our services…

Planning and Strategy Meeting…

In between the discovery meeting and the planning meeting, we will have taken a lot of information from you, including details on your current financial arrangements. This may involve writing to some of the companies to which you hold investments to ensure they remain relevant to your planning. Once this information is obtained, we build your personalised financial plan and cashflow…

Proposed plan…

Based on the information we receive will offer you either a Simplified Investment Plan or a Full Financial Plan. Whichever is deemed most appropriate will incorporate strategies to maximise your personal allowances and tax position, ensure you have the required flexibility and liquidity required, and importantly that the level of risk you are taking is appropriate to your needs and objectives.

Regular Review…

Once you’re fully happy and plan is agreed by yourself, you can leave all the hard work to us! We will arrange regular meetings to keep you informed on your plans progression, proving through the latest cashflow software that your plan is laid out as effectively as possible to achieve your objectives. If your situation changes, or you find yourself needing help in another particular area then our team will be there to make any amendments necessary to keep you heading to where you want to be.

July Performance Update

Patience has certainly been required so far this year. It is a pre-requisite of investing for the longer term but is also very easy to forget in times of stress. The theory is simple, though we all know that life isn’t a one way ticket, and sometimes putting theory into…
