The future of financial advice:

Working digitally, staying competitive

Our mantra of ‘Personal Financial Advice backed by Award Winning Technology’ has now come into its own.  We’ve used that technology to work remotely and be paper-free for over ten years now. So for us, it’s nothing new. We’re seeing more clients, both old and new, than ever, meeting virtually using FaceTime, WhatsAppSkype, Microsoft Teams or Zoom or just the ‘phone, according to your preference. The only difference is, you don’t have to make us a cup of tea! Our clients can already see what’s happening to their investments in real time via their client websites or mobile apps. And all this means that our fees (which we’ve recently reduced) are both straightforward and highly competitive’
