There's no denying that these are difficult times, but we're here to help. 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. We will remain (virtually) by your side.
Much of our planning conversations culminate in the realisation that our health is the most important thing. Without it, money can be somewhat pointless. However, we understand the emotional aspects of money, the freedom and choices it can give and take away, so it is completely understandable that people may have worries over the security of their financial plans at this difficult time, whilst being concerned for the health of themselves and their loved ones.
If you’ve been wondering whether your retirement is still on track, or unsure whether you should be taking any action, we can work with you to find clarity and peace of mind, so you can focus on staying safe and looking after yourself. Then once this uncertainty is over, you will be in a stronger position to get on and enjoy all those aspects of life that we are missing now.
Whilst our meetings typically focus on the good times; how you’d like to future to look and all the wonderful things you’d like to spend your time doing, behind the scenes we use our expertise to limit the damage during times like this. We stress test thoroughly and are always thinking “but what if this happens?” to ensure we create robust strategies that can support the great times while weathering the bad times too. There’s enough to be worrying about at the moment without adding concern over pensions and investments into the mix, so please do contact us via the details below if you think we may be able to help or if you are not receiving the advice you need from elsewhere. We genuinely appreciate being able to provide reassurance during these uncertain times.
We're really good at giving our clients confidence and peace of mind.
We put all your financial resources into context, so you can clearly see how the future looks and what to do for the best.
Our work together makes the difference between thinking you’ll probably be OK and knowing it for certain. That’s the kind of financial security that brings the benefits of freedom and choice into all areas of your life, enhancing your family time, your health, travel and overall well-being.
Our clients tell us they feel “liberated!” and “reassured”, with “a new confidence in the years ahead".
