What our clients say
Chris was very precise, methodical and open, and willing and able to answer any questions that I had. He is very knowledgeable, calm and professional.
Andrew Brill, Hampshire
Chris Miles listened to my concerns and was able to sort the "wheat from the chaff" in our conversations. He not only understood my needs but brought a clarity and simplicity to, what appeared to me, to be a complex pension position. His clear, calm manner and concise explanations have filled me with a sure confidence in our financial planning and I look forward to a long and successful financial relationship with Chris that will benefit not just me but my children as well.
Debra Clayton, Hampshire
He listened carefully to our position, suggested a way forward and followed through with detailed proposals for the best investment route.
Colin Richards, Hampshire
Chris Miles from Continuum has been very efficient and sensitive in assisting with the transition from my old adviser. He spent a long time meeting with me to discuss my needs and his professional approach and knowledge is outstanding and he has provided me with the faith and assurance I required with regards to the care of my finances. He is now looking after my pension, life assurance, power of attorney and inheritance planning and I sincerely look forward to the ongoing relationship we will have.
Carol Murphy, Hampshire
Chris explained to me in a clear and honest manner what options he felt were most appropriate given my situation. He gave me reassurance and clarity over the processes and made me feel very comfortable. Chris takes time to build a professional relationship in order to truly understand the needs of the client.

About us

I'm a partner in Continuum - an award-wining national firm of Independent Financial Advisers - one of the UK's most trusted top 100 financial planning firms.

I have been working with people like you since 2005 and if you believe the best way to get what you truly want in life is to have a plan, then I may be able to help you with financial planning. Human beings often leave things to chance, eventually understanding that they need some sort of plan for the future - I can also help if this is you.

The financial landscape can be daunting and, dare I say, sometimes dull, so I’m here to simplify the complex and brighten up your finances so you can get on with the good things you enjoy in life; which is for living after all!

Having a financial plan is important, I think. This is because the state is not there to provide; people need to make better provisions for themselves nowadays, and a general lack of financial education and awareness in the UK makes this challenging. I also believe that people are much more reliant upon good family finances than in the past due to how things are now, so I’m passionate about helping people like you gain clarity and peace of mind.

Our services

I provide a Discovery Meeting at our offices in Bournemouth or over Zoom and the cost of this time is on me. After that, we'll need to agree on a fee if we are going to work with you on your financial plan, which may be a fixed fee or percentage of assets.

We'll collect information from you following the Discovery Meeting to ensure we fully understand your circumstances and existing finances. With my team, we will analyse and research your options and there is likely to be a need for further discussions together prior to finalising my recommendations for you.

When ready, my advice will be confirmed within a financial planning report so you'll understand what my recommendations entail and how these align to your life goals.

We can help you to implement my recommendations and can provide an ongoing service afterwards.

Most recently I've been helping business owners extract more company profits, pay less tax and consolidate pension plans.

I have the capacity to help You too.
