Frequently Asked Questions.

To help you start your financial planning journey, we’ve compiled the questions we’re most often asked.

Please contact us if you have a question we haven’t answered.

Are you independent?

Accordion Arrow

Yes – 100% independent. This means that we’ll find the right financial solutions for your specific needs.

Are you chartered?

Accordion Arrow

Yes. Our team consists of a Chartered Financial Advisor, a Chartered Financial Planner and a Certified Financial Planner.

Where are meetings held?

Accordion Arrow

We’re flexible. We know your time’s precious, so we don’t insist on a particular format. We can meet in our offices or come to see you at home if you prefer. Video works too, if that’s your sort of thing.

What are your office hours?

Accordion Arrow

We’re open 8am – 6pm, Monday – Friday. However, we do offer flexi-meetings: early mornings, late evenings, or we can even do the odd Saturday if that’ll help.

Do you have parking?

Accordion Arrow

We’re based on Berkeley Square in Bristol. There are metered parking spaces out front. Clients are reimbursed for their parking charges.

Do I have to pay for an initial meeting?

Accordion Arrow

Nope – this one’s on us.

What do I need to bring to an initial meeting?

Accordion Arrow

Just yourself, your significant other (if you have one) and an open mind. You’re welcome to bring financial documents if you like, but the focus of this meeting will be on you, not your money.

How long should I allow for an initial meeting?

Accordion Arrow

Again, we’re flexible. Most meetings are around 45 minutes, but we allow up to two hours in case there’s a lot to discuss.

Do I have to sign up to your services at an initial meeting?

Accordion Arrow

Nope. Good things take time – we’re in no rush and think that you should have plenty of time to consider if we’re the right financial advisor for you. There’s absolutely no pressure to make a decision, in fact, even if you want to commit immediately, we have a ‘sleep on it’ policy, which means you have to take some time to consider if we’re the right fit.

How can I book an initial meeting?

Accordion Arrow

Either give us a call or use the online booking calendar.

Are you regulated?

Accordion Arrow

We are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. You can check this by looking us up on the FCA register.

Can you advise on final salary/defined benefit transfers?

Accordion Arrow

No. This is a complex area and you will need to obtain specialist advice. We work with a number of professionals in this area and are able to refer you if need be.

What happens if my financial advisor is away on holiday?

Accordion Arrow

Service continues as normal! We’ve got two experienced and qualified financial advisors (house rules are that both can’t be away at the same time!)

What is a financial plan?

Accordion Arrow

We’re glad you asked! have a look at our sample financial plan. It’s the hub of all your money management and what’s happening with it.
