We are often disappointed with the way that many traditional firms approach pricing. Fees are rarely advertised or discussed up front and it can be difficult to know which service you’re paying for or that your money is being well spent.
In response, we stick to the principles of being Up-Front, Transparent and Fair. This makes sure our customers know what they’re getting, what they’re paying for, and that it’s great value for money.
We believe that part of offering a high-quality service is to be honest about pricing, if you have any question then please drop us a line and we’ll be happy to answer.
We also offer a Free Consultation to anyone who is unsure about what Financial Advice they may need, or if they need any fee based advice at all.
And our fair price promise – We will only do work if we think the benefit outweighs the fees – can’t say fairer than that!
We always offer a complimentary consultation and always completely at our expense.
We use this session to discuss any queries you may have, determine if you need any financial advice and if so what would sort would best suit you. It also allows us time to get to know each other and explain how the advice process works and what you will receive for each service.
The session usually last between 30 minutes and an hour.
You will walk away from your consultation with an understanding what advice you may need, how it will benefit you and how much it will cost.
We aim to simplify financial advice – because life is complicated enough.
An agreed up front fixed cost. For the majority of advice we offer a fixed fee so that the client knows what they will be paying upfront and can make an informed choice about what service they required.

No cost to the client. We offer the majority of our Insurance and Protection advice completely fee free. We are able to do so as, like almost all brokers, we are paid a fee by the insurance providers.

Clear and transparent pricing is important to make sure you know what service you’re getting and that you’re happy with what you may pay before any work begins.

We will only proceed when we are sure you are aware and are happy with the fees discussed.
Clients deserve to know that every penny they spend is being used on high quality advice. We reduce costs wherever we can, as long as it does not impact the quality of advice.
We don’t think clients money is best spent on wood panelled offices, expensive dinners or golf tournaments. Instead, we prefer to spend it on state of the art IT systems, staffing for evenings and weekend appointments and advanced research and analysis tools.
No fancy high ceilinged offices, no golf tournaments and no cocktail evenings for our clients – sorry! But all this money saved does go right back into your pocket as reduced fees.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that high fees mean high quality advice, as unfortunately it doesn’t.
