All our advisers are members of the CII and undertake a structured programme of continuing professional development (CPD) activity to ensure their skills and knowledge are up-to-date.

As independent financial advisers, we are able to recommend products and services from across the market and are not tied to any particular provider.

We operate an explicit charging structure and will agree a fee with you before we commence work. This may either be paid directly by you or deducted from any plans that we arrange on your behalf. If an ongoing service is agreed with you then an ongoing fee will also be levied.

Fees will typically be charged as a fixed fee, an hourly rate, a percentage of funds invested or a combination of one or more of these. We may receive commission payments for arranging some non-investment related financial products.
