Financial Planning

Professional Independent Financial Planning helps you achieve your lifetime goals whilst maintaining your desired lifestyle for both you and your dependents.  By being in control of your life and your finances it enables you to do so without fear of ever running out of money, no matter what happens.  

Tangible benefits of financial planning include retiring years earlier than imagined, passing on estates to loved ones with a lower tax burden than was thought possible and managing long-term investment portfolios to help achieve financial freedom.

Leaf Financial Advisers Ltd. - Bristol Financial Planner

Financial Planning

The Financial Planning process involves taking a “big picture” look at where you currently are financially, identifying life goals and future plans and devising a long term strategy to achieve the lifestyle you want.  All in the most financial and tax efficient way possible.

Everyone’s financial goals will be different, although may include a secure retirement, a child’s education or the transfer of wealth to heirs.  Your values and unique situation will require a personalised financial planning process, specific to your own variables, such as your income, risk tolerance, commitments, and family. As such your financial plan will be bespoke to you and your unique situation.

In short, it is about creating a financial plan to help you realise and achieve your short, medium and long term financial goals.

How Can Leaf Financial Help You?

We are focused on providing a truly exceptional financial planning service; either as part of a long-term relationship or as a one-off interaction. 

We take the necessary time to fully understand you, your family and your personal objectives in order to formulate a comprehensive financial roadmap to ensure your financial wellbeing. 

We focus not just on your money, but on your lives.

In Depth Knowledge

We will use our in-depth knowledge of the financial industry and a set of financial tools and techniques to produce and implement a plan to help maximise your lifestyle while protecting against risks.  Your financial plan may use different types of investments, financial products, tax wrappers and pensions and may include a bespoke investment strategy designed to suit your individual circumstances

Plan For The Future

A key part of our service is using our forecasting tools and techniques to allow you to see how fast your wealth will grow, the impact of different spending levels and the size of any wealth that may be available to be passed down to family.

This visual, jargon free plan will allow you to not only clearly see the future but can help in any tax efficient planning, such as the use of trusts or other estate planning techniques.

Fully Regulated

With us on your side you’ll gain the protection of Regulated Advice.  Where we provide a regulated advice service we are responsible for the decisions we help you make.

Your adviser will also be Regulated and Authorised and be qualified by a Chartered financial body, ensuring they have quality training alongside their experience. 

Fair and Transparent Pricing

Our fees are transparent, straightforward and fair. 

We will make sure that we will only work with you if we can add value, making sure the benefits are more than any fees.

We think our pricing policy sets us apart – more can be found on our dedicated Pricing page.

Delivering Quality Convenient Advice

Personal & Flexible Advice

You will be assigned your own Personal Financial Adviser from the start to the end of your journey.  Someone to speak to face-to-face or on the phone if you have any questions or queries.  If you need an update, have a query or just want a chat; they will be there for you.

We offer flexible appointments, including evenings and weekends, not just 9 – 5. Because good advice fits around your schedule, not ours.

Simple English

Running through everything we do is a theme of elegant simplicity – we love taking complex financial situations and simplifying them for our clients so that they can enjoy a worry-free financial life.  We make sure we communicate in plain English, not Jargon!
