We are a firm of financial advisers based in West Sussex, UK. We provide advice to both individuals and companies on all aspects of financial planning, through a long term approach of fully understanding our clients' needs, wants and aspirations and then prioritising objectives.
As fully independent advisers, our clients benefit from our being able to offer advice on the broadest range of products and services. Whether it be for investment advice, retirement planning, inheritance tax planning or simply reducing costs, we have many years of experience in finding the most suitable solution for our clients' needs.
We provide advice and help following a personal / business financial review which can take place at a convenient time and place. Usually a review will start with a very broad discussion of your concerns and aspirations, before moving on to a thorough financial review.
Following your initial review, we will take time to consider your situation, needs and priorities before writing a detailed financial report. We will discuss this face to face in a follow up meeting in which we'll fully explain our recommendations and agree affordable priorities to assist you in acheiving your objectives.
Our charges can be structured in several ways. Some of our clients prefer a fee-based approach, whilst others are more comfortable with a commission basis. Either way will result in our fully disclosing our fees in an open and transparent manner.
We believe that money should simply be a tool - a means to achieve the peace of mind and quality of life you deserve. With this in mind, we apply investment management techniques that have been shown, over time, to optimise returns while minimising risk.
We base all our portfolio recommendations on multi-class investing, which has over 30 years of proven performance in the market place. We do not pick individual stocks. Rather, we implement investing strategies that emphasise asset class allocation and minimum trading. The result is a portfolio that aims for a solid long-term rate of return while minimising expenses and taxes.
Our goal is not to beat the market, but to achieve a healthy rate of return that allows our clients to achieve their financial dreams without exposing them to unreasonable risk. By using investment management strategies that have been extensively researched and refined to work in both good times and bad, our clients can relax, knowing their portfolio has been specifically designed to withstand the day-to-day and year-to-year fluctuations in the market.
