1. Introduction and fact find
We offer all potential clients an initial meeting, which is completely free of charge and obligation. This meeting serves as an opportunity to assess the compatibility of our services with your needs, helping us determine how much value we can add. We will also discuss the associated costs and service levels, both at the outset and throughout our partnership together. We provide the flexibility of conducting meetings in person, via phone, or through a secure web-conferencing platform, at a time and place to best suit you.
During this stage we delve deeper into your financial goals and lifestyle aspirations. We will gather details regarding your current financial arrangements, while also gaining insight into your level of financial expertise and your attitude toward risk.
2. Diagnosis and research
We now explore the market to find the best and most fitting solution to your requirements. We are able to search 'whole of market' as we are unbiased and truly independent. Following a comprehensive research process, we will provide you with a suitability report that includes our analysis and recommendations on how to achieve your financial and life objectives.
3. Presentation and recommendation
We will discuss the report's contents to ensure you fully understand our findings and recommendation. It could entail making minor adjustments to your current arrangements, or it might necessitate some trade-offs to align with your objectives. Nevertheless, we are committed to maintaining an open, truthful, and transparent approach in our interactions with you, and we are ready to offer additional support whenever necessary.
4. Client consent and implementation
If you are happy with our recommendation, we will assist you in completing the necessary forms and the processing of these.
