Review We work with all clients on a long-term, collaborative basis. Regular review meetings ensure your financial plan remains appropriate for your current circumstances. Reviews also allow us to adjust your arrangements as the markets or tax regimes change to ensure you achieve your longer-term life goals.
We work on a fee basis, with fees set on a fair and mutual basis. All fees are agreed and communicated with you before we commence work. Typical fees for initial financial advice are 1% of the investment (subject to a minimum of £1,500). Should we be dealing with larger investments these are capped at a maximum monetary amount so as not to be excessive.
We do not work on a commission basis – giving you peace of mind that our advice is truly independent. We work with the highest levels of integrity, where your best interests are of the utmost importance to us.
