Peace of mind
Our purpose is simple; it is to give you complete peace of mind that your investments are as secure as possible while working hard for your benefit. We do this by holding fast to our three guiding principles:
We take a proactive approach to improving our practices, moving away from commission based rewards for advisers so that their only incentive is to give you the right advice, at the right time, for your investment needs. All of our independent financial advisers are accredited by the UK’s Financial Services Regulator, guaranteeing our adherence to the Financial Conduct Authority code of ethics (our FCA number is 415232).
Our professional, independent, financial advice is a value-based service that gives you access to highly qualified, industry accredited advisers who are familiar with a wide range of financial products to protect your money and your family. All of our advisers keep themselves fully up to date with the financial product markets in order to identify the most suitable products or service providers to meet your needs.

Directors Stephen Bloomfield and Andrew Bullingham, between them, have more than 50 years’ experience working in the financial industry and both are well-established and respected figures in their field.
