Getting the right advice and support for you

Every year, we help many clients with their finances during life changing events. Some of the main reasons people get in touch are:

  • Marriage/divorce – this could involve changing who should receive your pension, setting up joint investments or creating a new Will*

  • Birth of a child/grandchild – a huge change in family that changes priorities for many of our clients

  • New job – a new job may mean a new pension, more disposable income or you may have reduced your hours as you phase into retirement

  • Inheritance – if you’ve recently received an inheritance and not sure what to do with it, we can help you make the most of it

  • Cost of living – while we can’t help lower the prices of items, we may be able to help with the rest of your finances

  • Interest rates – interest rates can have an impact on your savings and your mortgage and should be considered when creating a financial plan

*Will writing isn’t regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Help with life changing events

Our advisers can help in number of ways when it comes to life changing events:

An expert review

Our financial advisers are experts and can let you know what to do in a straightforward way.

Peace of mind

Speaking to one of our financial advisers will give you comfort that an expert has reviewed your finances and recommended what’s best for you.

Plan creation

We’ll create a financial plan that’s tailored to your own specific circumstances and your future goals

Where to invest

We’ll recommend the fund that’s most suited to meeting your needs now and in the future.

We'll do the hard work

We’ll create a plan, complete all the paperwork and set everything up for you.

Keep on track

If appropriate, we’ll regularly review your finances and make any changes to keep them on track.

As with all investments, the value can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you put in. We believe less can definitely be more. So the advice recommendations we make are from a carefully selected range of products and funds. Using a focused and controlled approach allows us to develop an in-depth knowledge of the products, so we can safely and confidently recommend a solution that’s right for you. This is known as restricted advice.
