We have three fully qualified Independent Financial Advisers who are accomplished in all aspects of investment and financial planning offering clients impartial and independent advice. As we are not linked or associated in any way with providers of financial products our advice is genuinely independent. All recommendations that we make are based upon our knowledge, experience and research of the entire market.

All of our advisers are members of the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and Professional Finance Society. This means they regularly attend training courses and meetings to ensure they are fully informed about developments within the industry and changes to the relevant regulations. As a result, their advice is always relevant, up to date and meets all regulatory requirements.

The combined experience and knowledge of our advisers, together with the specialist knowledge that they hold in a number of key areas of financial planning, is immense. We believe that this is invaluable in ensuring that we provide high quality independent advice specific to the individual needs and the circumstances of each client.
