People choose MSC because we offer three things they want from a Financial Planner:

Guidance – On how best to plan ahead
Trust – A relationship to support them along the way
Financial Planners need to understand pensions, investment and taxes. But it’s equally important to understand people. They need to know what matters most to you, including your attitude to money.
We like to think we’re good at this.
Our clients come from all walks of life with different needs and concerns, but there are always some similarities. They want to:
Protect what they’ve saved and make assets work for them
Approach tax pragmatically without paying more than is necessary
Reach and maintain financial independence
Ensure money is left behind when they’re gone
By understanding how your finances change over your lifetime, it’s easier to know where to invest. It helps you make informed decisions about where to put money and how much you can spend.
There’s always more than one choice, and we’ll discuss your options before making a decision.
