Trust & Respect

Clients seek our help when they finally want to work with a firm that is looking out for them and who do it on a transparent fee basis

If this sounds like you, and you are seeking help, please get in touch here. First step is an initial phone call in total confidence, and at no expense to you.

Our Expertise

A sample of what we will do for you as part of our MasterPlan™ Maintain Programme

  • Help you think about what you wish to achieve now and also in the medium and long term. Build a specific and robust financial plan using sophisticated financial forecasting software. Tell you what is and what is not realistic
  • Be a critical thinking partner to you, and challenge you to live the life you want to live, within your means
  • We know how investment management works and where the returns come from. We know what information is relevant and which is noise
  • We help you implement the right structures at the right time, and which companies to use to get the desired results
  • We’ll help you realise what you are worth. We can help you to insure yourself and your family against unpleasant health surprises
  • We know what asset classes and financial instruments provide the real returns, and know which ones to avoid. We help you focus on ‘what’s always worked ‘and avoid ‘what’s working today.’
  • Help you understand the difference between loss of capital, volatility, and inflation. Importantly, we’ll help you act accordingly
  • Help you realise that investors are the biggest wealth-destroyer of all, and to control your behaviour through all market cycles, fads, fears, euphoria, and Armageddon
  • You have access to our combined expertise of over 70+ years with non-standard investment and pension planning (link to our team)
  • We dislike unregulated advice and murky financial products and have a finely tuned scam avoidance antenna
  • While doing all of the above, we schedule regular planning meetings with you to ensure your plan is on track, that it’s fit for purpose as your life changes, and to make valuable adjustments only when we need to

What We Do

We are committed to truly independent investment & retirement income planning. In the first instance we will work together to create your own Informed Decisions MasterPlan. Only then will we consider any changes in your investment or retirement planning. We then work closely together over the long-term; where we will tell you the unvarnished truth, challenge you when needed, and help you make tactical changes which benefit you.

Our investment philosophy is based on the optimum wealth management and investment strategies available globally. Using expert consultation, we create cost effective portfolios that are diversified and proven. The focus is always on achieving real returns over the long term, not on complexity, high-costs and confusion.

A Fair Fee

In all circumstances, you will be informed of all costs before giving the go-ahead on any regulated advice. We express the values we add to client's live here in our Client Care Programme. We do not sell products – we do not earn commissions – we do not predict the future – we do not advise clients to do anything we do not do ourselves with our own finances.

Because we believe in a fair fee in return for what we do for clients, and that total transparency will deliver better relationships, we fully disclose the fee clients pay us.
