How we work with you
We follow a six-step consultative approach to ensure our clients receive personalised financial advice. Our advisers will guide you through each step at a pace that suits you and together we will create your financial plan.
Steps one and two form the initial no obligation consultation where we agree how we work together and is at our expense. This includes agreeing the remuneration method, should you wish to work with us.
Step 1 – Setting Goals

Step 2 – Gathering Information
We collect all relevant personal and financial data and establish your perceived risks, we use personal circumstances, third party information, risk profiling and financial and tax information.
Step 3 – Performing Analysis

Step 4 – Designing Strategy
We will prepare a personal report with bespoke recommendations, then set out different strategies to achieve your objectives. This is done through product research and design, formal written recommendation, product provider liason and personalised illustrations and documents.
Step 5 – Implementing
