Our Investment Process

We work hard to create plans based around yours

Whether you plan to retire early and want a portfolio to sustain your chosen lifestyle, or you intend to leave an amount for children or grandchildren, or maybe you need a deposit for a new or second home or a lump sum to pay for a wedding or university fees; we understand the need for a plan.

All of our services are underpinned by a disciplined, rigorous investment process which enables our qualified and experienced financial advisors to make the right recommendations for our clients.

The foundation for our success is our focus on providing a high-quality, personal service to each of our clients. We work hard to understand your objectives through the four stages of our financial planning process:


  • An initial meeting with one of our qualified financial advisers to establish your financial needs
  • Discuss our service propositions and the costs involved


Review and recommendation:

  • Review your existing finances and personal circumstances
  • Discuss your attitude towards investment risk
  • Analyze and design your investment strategy
  • Present our recommended plans


Implementation of your investment plan:

  • Handle all fund and policy administration on your behalf
  • Provide regular updates and progress reports
  • Ensure all documents are issued in line with your expectations
  • Confirm, in writing, all actions undertaken on your behalf


Provision of on-going services including:

  • Structured reviews
  • Assess your circumstances and make subsequent change recommendations
  • Provide regular updates and information regarding your investments
  • Offer a choice of differing levels of support

The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you can get back less than you originally invested.
