Tracy Haste, Bishops Stortford, Essex
Aventur Wealth gave us great advice and helped set up our pension fund for our family run business. I also used them to remortgage our house and I got a great rate through them and saved myself nearly £200 a month
Hein Coleman, Essex
Aventur Wealth looks after my investments and does a great job! Always there to help with any questions, usually do my remortgaging through them as well.
Stuart Young, London
Louis-Rhys Harvey is very helpful & attentive as well as approachable. He has patiently & clearly explained matters that I previously struggled to understand. I would recommend Louis to anyone, he is a pleasure to deal with.
Lin Cruickshank, Witham, Essex
Thomas has been working with us for the last 2 years in managing a trust fund portfolio and his advice and guidance in managing the fund has been invaluable. We receive regular financial updates, have regular face-to-face meetings and are able to view and monitor our portfolio online. If we have queries or questions, Thomas is always quick to respond; Aventur Wealth provide us with an exceptional service.
Susan, London
Reviewed my pension plan, and the advice has proved to be extremely valuable as the fund is doing a lot better than the fund I already had. The timely three month reports are better than my previous advisor and overall the relationship has been very beneficial. The service has been timely, prompt and courteous and I would have no hesitation in recommending Louis-Rhys Harvey to any of my clients.

Janina Rooney, Brentwood, Essex
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? I have recently set up my own business and am now self employed. Previously I had a work related pension and did't give it much thought, however it is now important to me to have full control of my finances and in particular my pension. How did Louis-Rhys Harvey help you? Louis-Rhys Harvey helped me by analysing my current pension and other financial commitments and giving me advice on how I could improve my returns. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? It is early days and not everything is in place yet so I have not seen the financial outcomes but am very happy with the Proposals. What could they have done better? I can not see how Louis could have done better, He was extremely thorough and clear.
Mette McLarney, Maldon, Essex
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? Wanted to start investing my money, but had no idea how to go about it. How did Louis-Rhys Harvey help you? He discussed the different investments and different risks. And helped me to put together an account and start investing my savings. He also gives me advice on any area of the investments whenever I need. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes definitely, I am still continuing to invest and seeing positive outcomes. What could they have done better? Nothing. He talked me through everything, explains it well (translates it into layman's terms) and is very easy to get in contact with, if needed.

Louis is a very personable guy & took time to explain each step as well as advising us on what best to do with each different investment as our children were involved too. All the advice given has since turned out to be good as the investments are doing well, bit too early to predict the pensions but hopefully that will run along the same lines What could they have done better? Honestly can't think of anything other than fill in all the forms for us! ;)
Phil Peek, Colchester, Essex
Louis was/is very pleasent to deal with. He explained everything very clearly and made us feel very comfortable discussing products and services that we are not at all familiar with. Each time we have met him he was prompt and when we had emails telling us to expect documents etc, they arrived as he said they would.

About us

At Aventur Wealth we are privileged to have a small, boutique company that provides bespoke services designed around the client. This is how we believe a financial advisory company should be.

We provide a free online system for our clients to log in to via our website and our online app. This allows them to see their portfolio at anytime, 24/7. Their appointed adviser/relationship manager is then on hand, again, pretty much at anytime should they wish to discuss anything or have a visit/phone call. There is no fee for meetings, any communication and so on.

As standard we then review our client’s attitude to risk on a 6 monthly basis, electronically via email, and this feeds back in to our system. If anything is noted that needs to be discussed we then contact the client to discuss this further.
