What our clients say
Adam is a conscientious adviser who has helped me work through my financial planning as it has evolved over the years. He has always taken the time to understand my needs and help me make plans for them. His explanations of the different aspects of financial planning and products available have been clear and simple to grasp making it easy to decide on a course of action. He has offered advice to other members of my family who have also found it invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone who is looking for financial advice and I have done so on numerous occasions in the past.
Hugh Adams, Kent
Adam has helped me enormously in getting the financial plans for me and my family in order. When I started talking to Adam I was completely overwhelmed with the number of options when it came to pension, savings and investments, and I really didn’t know what it was I needed to have in place. He has helped me see the wood for the trees quickly and efficiently and his advice has always been clear and sound. I have already recommended Adam to number of friends and colleagues and I wouldn’t hesitate in doing so to anyone else looking for financial advice and planning.
Ian Hawkins, Kent
I have worked with Adam for more than four years as my financial advisor. Adam has always been proactive in reaching out to me with regards to account’s reviews and ensuring I have planned sufficiently for my future. He has put me in touch with some very valuable contacts especially with regard to will planning and mortgage advice. I have recommended many of my colleagues to Adam and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly financial advisor.
Kohan Rebeiro, Surrey
Adam is upfront and honest. His advice is concise and jargon-free. He doesn’t over promise but delivers effectively and efficiently on agreed objectives. Being able to rely on him helps give me peace of mind that my financial affairs are in safe hands.
Simon Maynard, London
Adam has provided me with financial advice for almost a decade now. Adam’s advice has always been tailored to my own needs and ambitions as opposed to offering a one-size-fits-all service. I feel incredibly secure and confident in my financial future having followed his advice from the early stages of my career. I would recommend his services to anyone. In addition to the products and services that Adam has provided to me, I feel that he is a trusted advisor that I can discuss major financial decisions with. He is also able to utilise a wide network of contacts to provide assistance in other related areas, such as mortgage advisors and solicitors.
Andrew Welch, London
Adam took the time to get to know and understand us, the things we like to do now and what we would like both my wife and I, and our children's future to be like. He helped us to build the right portfolio, providing insightful advice where needed. He keeps up to date on our circumstances, makes good recommendations that keep us on track with our plan, and responding as our needs change. We feel we get a very personalised service.
Brad Andrews, Surrey
I have been very impressed with Adam's ability to assess my existing arrangements and identify what I need to be doing to provide for my retirement. As my tax position has become more complex Adam has been able to assist in managing this in an efficient and extremely professional manner. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Adam to anyone considering engaging his services.
Ian Ritchie, London
Adam has helped shape my finances from a mess into something logical.
Andy Yates, West Yorks & London
Adam’s approach has been to look at what my needs will be when I retire; the income I will need to cover not just the basics but also provide a quality of life. He has then extrapolated that back to create an investment strategy that is tax efficient, diverse and is tailored to the needs of me and my family as a whole. What’s more he has been able to “stress test” the investments to see what will happen to my retirement income if there is any market upheaval in the future. Adam has also helped me look at my more immediate financial needs and how I can help my daughters as they complete their education and begin working life.
Andrew Hall, Essex
Adam has advised me for a number of years now. Adam is very approachable and uses plain/user-friendly language to explain things. I came to Adam for advice as I didn’t really understand my options or what I needed to think about in terms of short/medium/long term financial planning. Adam has been able to explain to me what I should be considering and tailor the advice to my situation. Adam has never tried to force me into anything but advised and guided. So far everything appears to be going well and am pleased with the advice received
Stuart Fowkes, London
We had had Financial Advisers a long time ago, when we had some money to invest and although the first one was very pleasant and good at his job, the ones we saw after him were not. It didn't always feel that they were working in our best interests, so after a while we stopped using them. A long time passed and we were talking finances with friends and two of them were with Adam and could not speak highly enough of him. So, although we did not think that there was much that he would be able to do for us, considering our circumstances, we contacted Adam. We could not have been more wrong. Adam is simply a very nice person to deal with, he is pleasant, engaging and shows a genuine interest in your circumstances, not just financial. After the first meeting, we knew straight away that we wanted him to help us. We have been with Adam for a few years now and we have definitely seen the benefits of his advice, The only regret that we have is that we did not meet him earlier.
Ian Backham, London & Essex
About us

My name is Adam Rideout; I am a Senior Partner at Foster Denovo, a firm of award-winning financial planners and a Financial Planner, based in our London office. I’m delighted to have been included in the 2021 Top Rated VouchedFor guide.

My clients are typically:

- Professionals or business owners looking to build wealth or approaching retirement,
- Earning in excess of £100,000 per year,
- Working in law, insurance, banking or IT or running your own company.

If that describes you, you’ll know that dedicating time to your finances can be a struggle. A demanding career and lifestyle make it all too easy for proper financial planning to fall by the wayside.

That’s where I can help.
I commonly get asked:
- Do I have enough to live the life I want in retirement?
- Am I doing the right thing to achieve both my short and long-term financial goals?
- How do I put my money to good use, so that it fits around my long-term plan?
- Am I looking after the future of my family as well as my own?
- What have I got to do to ensure that I retire on my terms; when I want and on the income I want?

Our services

I am highly experienced and understand the financial challenges people face. These can be as specific as wanting to consolidate existing pensions, or as broad as wanting to put a financial plan in place to achieve long term financial security in retirement.

Once I know what your challenges and objectives are, I’ll use my skill, knowledge and experience to put together a financial plan to solve them.
Your time is precious, so the plan will be delivered and executed succinctly and concisely. It will then be reviewed regularly to help ensure you remain on track.
