We pride ourselves on our ability to forge long-term relationships with our clients, working side-by-side with you to build a detailed financial investment profile in order to make strategic recommendations. Based on your natural risk tolerance, investment experience and capacity for loss, your investment profile will lie within your comfort zone, leaving you free to enjoy your life.

This is just the start of the journey with William Highbourne. Through regular meetings, discussions and reviews we will truly get to know you and gain a full understanding of your lifestyle, objectives and most importantly your concerns.

Compliance

The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up; you may not recover the amount of your original investment. When an investment involves exposure to a foreign currency, changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of the investment, and the income from it, to go up and down. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance.
