How we charge
You will always know our fees before you make a decision to proceed. We don’t hide our costs and we have a transparent charging structure, so you can be sure we are working efficiently for your benefit.
Our fees are based wholly upon the provision of our qualified and professional expertise; the time taken to analyse your circumstances and devise an appropriate strategy going forward, the design of an appropriate summary report to communicate this strategy to you, and also takes into account our firm’s exposure to regulatory, commercial and financial risk.
Data Protection
You may be assured that we and any company associated with us will treat all personal data and sensitive personal data as confidential and will not process it other than for legitimate purposes. Steps will be taken to ensure that the information is accurate, kept up to date and not kept for longer than is necessary. Measures will also be taken to safeguard against unauthorised or unlawful processing and accidental loss or destruction or damage to the data.

Initial Consultation
We will meet with you face-to-face, via a Web meeting or telephone conference in order to capture important information about your current circumstances, your financial history, and your aspirations, priorities and objectives in terms of your financial future. We will also discuss your attitude toward “investment risk”, and your understanding of how such risks may affect you.
The consultation will close with a summary of our findings, and our suggested next steps toward a tailored, yet realistic, solution to your needs. There is no obligation to proceed at this stage, and no costs will have been incurred.
