The things that matter to us

We practice true
financial planning

What does that mean? It means we’re not just numbers-people. We’re people-people. We care about your ability to live the life you want. Your money is just a tool to do that.

Our only agenda
is your agenda

We are not here to sell you financial products. Our only focus is on helping you reach your personal lifestyle and financial goals.

We are a firm built
around empowerment

We want to put you in control of your finances so that you can achieve the lifestyle you desire. And we walk the walk too; empowering our team to reach their full potential.

We are

Our approach is to be approachable. On the end of the phone whenever you need advice, reassurance or just a chat to keep us updated on your family news.

We do what is right,
not what is easy

We believe that how we work is just as important as what we do.

And that real integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

Client stories




Our conversations centred around what I wanted to achieve, and it then became about working out how I’d get that. My goal was financial freedom. I didn’t have that when we first met, but I’m glad to say, I do now.

I met Nick a few years ago, via an introduction from a close friend. I was at the stage in my life where I really needed to think more strategically about my finances, and planning for the future and ultimately my retirement.

I know that I am in good hands and that my finances are being looked after by someone I trust which gives me huge peace of mind. What I particularly value is the care that Paul gives – he is proactive, responsive and always makes time to listen and explain everything really clearly.

Having the financial part of my life squared away gave me the confidence I needed to start my own company. I wouldn't have had the confidence that I have the money, or the bandwidth to take this step otherwise.

Paul has helped us plan for our children’s futures. He advised us on school fees, how to plan for our children going to university, and we’ve gone through all life scenarios and said, in each one, are we secure? What do we need to do to ensure we would be secure in that situation?
