Our mission is to provide the highest quality financial advice that follows our four-step process of understanding, planning and implementing and regularly reviewing our customers’ financial progress against their goals. While being clear in our process, we also commit to being transparent with our charges and provide comprehensive information on our customers’ finances that are managed by us.


Our vision is to have used our expertise and skills to have realised our customers’ financial aspirations in the future – providing our customers with, subject to factors out of our control, the financial freedom that they planned for. We are committed to being honest when it comes to money, the risks, opportunities and the related charges.


Financial freedom is achieved by building, protecting and managing your money.

Our four-step process begins by understanding your financial circumstances and aspirations, proposing a plan to realise them, implementing the plan and reviewing progress over time.

    By gathering information from you, we will find out about any plans you already have in place and be able to use these as the foundations for any recommendations. Then by exploring your attitude to risk and return, and your hopes and aspirations, we will build a picture of what you want to achieve. At this stage, you will find out what to expect from us and how you will benefit from using us.
    We’ll explore and research various scenarios to make the best use of your existing plans. We’ll then recommend how you can build on your existing plans, so you give yourself the best chance of achieving your goals.
    Like most of our clients, you will probably prefer us to do the necessary work to put your plan into action. This will save you a lot of time and effort and ensure your plans are set up correctly.
    Nothing stands still, so it makes sense to review your plans regularly; we suggest that this is done annually. This way you will find out if your plans are affected by changes to legislation or taxation. You will also hear from us if we have something that we feel will interest you.


You will receive clear details on what the total charge is, the advice or service it relates to, how we’ve calculated it and when you need to pay. You are not obliged to implement any of our recommendations. However, we may still charge a fee for our advice.


Chris has been completely professional, very thorough , and most importantly, very clear in explaining what are quite complex scenarios in layman’s terms. Chris has made the process a very simple one and we look forward to concluding and continuing to monitor our financial situation with his help going forward.
