We are delighted and proud to offer a fully independent financial and investment planning service and we advise upon all aspects of clients’ financial affairs. The Company continues to expand its operations and also offers an Accountancy and Taxation service along with a Will Writing, Trusts, Estates and Probate Department.
The Company is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and is one of the largest and longest established Independent Financial Advisers in North Devon. We are regulated at one of the highest available categories, being one of a very few authorised to undertake discretionary investment management and to hold client money. Consequently, we are required to maintain sizeable and very strict financial resources at all times. The Company’s accounts are subject to thorough independent audit and full accounts are published and submitted to the FCA regularly. Also, the Financial Ombudsman Service and Financial Services’ Compensation Scheme apply to enhance investor protection against financial loss.
With well over three decades of experience, we also boast some of the highest financial services’ qualifications in the country. Staff are encouraged and sponsored to achieve qualifications beyond the industry standard to ensure that we continue to deliver an excellent service to clients.
Success can be attributed largely to the Company’s uncompromising commitment to clients, including ongoing assessment and management of investments, a thorough understanding of financial markets, prudent management and long-term financial stability.
We do not simply “sell products” – we provide a comprehensive and long-lasting service to individuals and their families. This is an important distinction and an approach that is rare in today’s fast moving landscape.
This has led to many clients recommending family and friends to seek our advice – the ultimate endorsement of the quality of our services.
