Corporate Financial Planning Advice
WE ARE READY.
How Can We
Many of our clients are professional people and will refer us to their clients or friends and family. We find this is because they trust us completely and know we will do our very best for their client, rather than pay them money. This enables us to be able to help professional connections to help their clients. We find Solicitors , Accountants and Insurance Brokers like to deal with us and indeed we are on the recommended ‘refer to’ panel at a number of well-known practices in the Midlands.
Trustees are now duty bound to take proper financial advice when dealing with a trust’s assets. Things must be done properly and we will sit on the trustee investment meeting each year to ensure the assets are positioned in the best possible way so that the beneficiaries are looked after. This is not only a requirement for Trustees, but also enables them to oversee the trust and meet their obligations towards the beneficiaries whom they want to look after. We will often use providers that a professional used in the past and will not disturb assets for the sake of it.
Feedback and Recommendations
With client agreement, we will always feed back to our connections, provide copies of recommendations etc. and work with them for the benefit of our clients. When various professionals can communicate with each other and understand their clients, then people can expect a really good outcome and service.

Neil and Angela have provided us with plain good old fashioned personal service, the sort not easy to find in the corporate world.Keith and Gaynor Lea
I was recommended to this firm nearly three years’ ago when looking for specialist advice on transferring my defined benefit pension scheme. Being naturally cautious and aware of warnings to avoid sharp operators in this market I approached discussion with understandable prudence and trepidation. What struck me immediately was the ethos of calm professionalism, assured knowledge and utmost integrity of everyone I spoke to at the company. At no time did I feel pressured or rushed into making decisions. Rather, I was encouraged to question and fully consider all aspects of what is a very complex matter with far-reaching life implications. I have continued to be impressed with the standards of care and professionalism in all aspects of their service and the efficiency and friendliness of my Financial Advisor, Karen Pizey.Peter Whitehouse
