Our aim is to bring together the specialist areas of expert investment planning advice and holistic financial planning to provide you with a robust and personalised strategy for achieving your financial objectives. We start by undertaking an assessment of how much risk you are comfortable in taking to achieve your goals. We need to know how long the money is to be invested for and that you have sufficient funds available to meet any unforeseen emergencies.In undertaking an investment review we will cast an eye over your existing investments and offer impartial advice on your portfolio mindful of already having assessed your attitude to risk.We will make recommendations that will diversify your investments across different countries, different asset classes and different sectors to help reduce risk. We will also recommend appropriate tax wrappers to ensure that your investments are as tax efficient as they can possibly be.A core requirement for effective Investment planning is monitoring, which we carry out as part of our ongoing service proposition periodic reviews are normally undertaken yearly, half-yearly or quarterly depending upon the level of service you require. This process may involve re-balancing your portfolio by changing funds whilst maintaining the need for tax efficiency. The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested.
