For individuals, we offer advice on:
Investment and Savings
Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax planning
Personal Pensions (including SIPPs)
Your Options at Retirement
Life Assurance, Critical Illness Insurance and Income Protection
And for companies, our range of services is similarly comprehensive, with advice being available on:

Getting the best from your savings is the fundamental reason why people entrust the management of their finances to a firm of independent financial advisers. We have more experience than most in this area and you will find that we are reassuringly thorough and professional in all of our dealings.
When assessing your investment needs, we will ask you questions, such as: 'How much?', ' How Long?', 'What for?' and 'Who for?' and adopt a systematic approach to our recommendations as well as a robust review structure to keep your plans on track.
You will find that we make sure that each client gets the appropriate amount of attention paid to their investments and that we review our investment recommendations via an investment committee on a regular basis. You will also find that, where we feel that a situation warrants it, we will advocate the use of external discretionary fund managers to make sure that your investment gets the best possible opportunity to thrive.
We apply the same level of care in the arrangement and management of our pension clients' affairs. We are able to advise on the full range of plans to help you build up your retirement fund - from a straightforward stakeholder arrangement or a self invested personal pension plan (SIPP) or small self administered scheme (SSAS). And when you are ready to retire, we will be on hand to navigate you through the ever increasing number of retirement options that you can choose from.
