What is financial planning?
Financial planning is an ongoing process to help you make informed and sensible decisions about your money, which can make real your hopes for the future.
How can it help?
It isn’t just about making more money by structuring your finances correctly (you can though). It isn’t just because conventional financial thinking causes us to make emotional, rather than logical, decisions with our money (it does). It’s not even because doing it correctly is a more fulfilling exercise (it is). It is because your money should let you do more of what you want to do in life, not hold you back.
What does the service include?
It includes reviewing and advising on:
- Wills and powers of attorney.
- Insurance policies – life assurance, disability insurance, private medical insurance.

We will develop a set of proposals to help you achieve your ambitions, including how you should own, structure, invest protect and grow your wealth.
