WHAT WE OFFER
Our advisers have significant experience in a range of areas, and are able to provide bespoke specialist advice on everything from mortgages to pensions.
While there are many places to turn to for financial advice, an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) is able to offer you unbiased advice on financial products across the entire market.
We know how time consuming it can be to establish exactly which mortgage is right for you. Our financial advisers can help you select the best mortgage available, and help with the paperwork that comes with it.
When it comes to more complicated financial matters such as investments or pensions, a financial adviser who knows the ins and outs can point you in the right direction.
SAVINGS & INVESTMENTS
There are many different types of savings and investments, each with different structures and tax implications. We can discuss your aims and objectives and recommend the most suitable ways to achieve your goals.
Taxation can be very complicated. The rules, reliefs and allowances often change, meaning it is important to stay on top of the current laws to ensure you're managing your finances in a tax-efficient way.
PENSIONS & RETIREMENT
As pension specialists, we can provide advice on areas of pensions which other advisers simply aren't qualified to advise in. We can help you decide how much you should be putting in your pension as well as ensuring that your pension contributions are tax efficient.
Unfortunately, estate planning is not just for the retired or the wealthy. We can help arrage your estate appropriately so that it is distributed in line with your wishes.

Stocks and Shares Advice
What are stocks and shares?
Stock is ownership, or equity, in a company. Investors buy stock in the form of shares, which represent a portion of a company's assets and earnings (capital).
As a stockholder, the extent of your ownership (your stake) in a company depends on the number of shares you own in relation to the total number of shares available.
Stocks in publicly traded companies are bought and sold at a stock market. You can buy a share in a stock when a company first decides to trade itself on the stock market - that is, at flotation or privatisation; or you can buy through the stock market once the shares are in circulation and being traded.
What is the risk?
Investing in stocks carries an element of risk because prices can go down as well as up. The price of stocks is a function of demand, which is based on investors' perceptions of the company's future earnings prospects. The choice of a stock's income or growth is usually a question of the investor's attitude to risk.
What will we do?
We can help you to assess your goals and attitude to risk, ensuring that you make the right decisions for your investments.
