About us

As one of the longest established financial adviser firms operating in the UK, we provide individuals, families and corporate clients with financial advice that you can trust. Our business was founded by Peter Bates and Grant Ellis, who, 35 years on, still have a significant presence on the Board.

Today, as our reputation, geographical reach across the UK and expertise continues to grow, our presence in the region and the principles by which we do business have remained fundamentally unchanged. In fact, we’re proud to say that many of our earliest clients and the generations that followed them continue to place their absolute trust in us as their financial guide.

Our services

Our financial advisers listen to your life objectives and formulate a financial plan to deliver your goals, which are individually tailored to your aspirations. Whether you are looking to invest for reasons such as retirement, supporting your children through education, protecting yourself and your family, or buying a new house, we will analyse your current investments and create a bespoke and integrated plan to meet your needs. Our strategic planning process is designed to give you a coherent financial plan, so you can be confident we will find you the most effective route to get from aspiration to fulfilment.
