About us

From day one, Cleverly Planned was set up to be securely operational from anywhere at any time, so there will be absolutely no reduction in service whilst we are unable to attend our office or see you in person.

Our service can be best described in the words of our clients:

"My husband and I were one of Cleverly Planned’s first clients. The wonderful Sophie Marfell looked after us and opened up options for us that we had never considered. The result is that we have both been early retired for nearly four years now, and each year at our review the money is at the level it needs to be, even in these difficult times. A totally safe pair of hands and people who understand it’s not just about figures - it’s about something very important - your life ahead and the things you want to do. Totally un- pressured approach, ethical, intelligent and realistic - I wouldn’t go with anyone else."

Our work together makes the difference between thinking you’ll probably be OK and knowing it for certain.

Our services

We're really good at putting all your financial resources into the context of your life and your values. So you can see what's possible and understand what to do for the best to make sure you'll always know you have enough money in the right place at the right time to get on and enjoy life.

Whilst we have specialist knowledge in a range of complex areas, such as tax efficient retirement planning, pension sharing on divorce, redundancy packages, the lifetime and annual allowances, we deal with these as a matter of course, and put our time with you to best use in helping you answer the big questions like “do we really have enough?”, “when could I stop working?”, “am I doing the right thing?”, “how much could we give to others?”.

Our clients tell us they feel “liberated!” and “reassured”, with “a new confidence in the years ahead".
