What we do

High-quality, personal service from an experienced professional

We work with people who are looking for someone they can trust. Finance can be complex, but it doesn’t need to be. We can help to make things clear so that you feel confident and in control of where your wealth is taking you.

We help to address your financial issues

When we meet clients we tend to find that they’re aware they have a financial problem and that there are potential solutions out there. However, they either don’t know where to look, are afraid of being ‘sold to’ rather than receiving impartial advice, or simply don’t have the time or inclination to do it themselves.

Whatever the case may be, this can create a problem because ultimately people are not addressing their financial issues which can lead to bigger headaches down the line.

Our role is to address whatever financial problems you have in order to ensure you have enough money to enjoy your life while still having a sizeable pot of money left to pass on to the next generation. We do this by explaining things in simple terms and by removing the jargon. The next stage depends on each client and their unique circumstances and goals.

Who we work with

People approaching retirement

You’ve either retired or are at various stages in your retirement planning process, such as mid-career or approaching retirement.

Questions we help you answer

  • I would love to retire before my state pension kicks in, but is it possible?
  • I’ve invested a bit over the years, but I don’t know if I’m getting the most out of my money.
  • I want to reach a stage where I don’t have to worry, how do I get there?
  • I don’t know if I’m saving enough money for my retirement, how much will I even need?

Business  owners

These can range from those just starting out to those business owners looking to plan an exit strategy.

Questions we help you answer

  • How much do I need to sell my business for to be able to afford to give up working altogether?
  • I’m worried that if I, or key members of staff, fell ill then my business will fail. Is there anything I can do?
  • I need to set up a workplace pension scheme for my employees, but where do I begin?
  • Do I need a ‘Plan B’ in case I can’t sell my business for enough?


We also work with wealthy individuals and their families who want to ensure that the wealth they have accumulated is passed down through the generations responsibly and efficiently.

Questions we help you answer

  • I know the lifestyle I want to live, but I don’t know if I can afford it while still having enough left to pass on to my kids.

  • If I died or became seriously ill, how would it affect my family financially and can I protect them?
  • I’m worried that paying inheritance tax will force my family to sell the family home. Is there a way to avoid this?
  • Should I set up a family Trust?
  • How do I ensure my grandchildren’s education is paid for after I’m gone?
