Because life never stands still
Most of our clients are professionals with busy lives. They usually come to us for advice when life is about to change in some way. Maybe their children are about to fly the nest, perhaps downsizing is on the cards or retirement is beginning to look like an exciting reality.
We’ll help you plan for all those big changes – no matter how soon or far away they might be – just like we’ve done for many other clients over the years. Then you’ll be able to do all the things you want to do with confidence, knowing there will be money left at the end of your life, and not life left at the end of your money.
Take a look at some of our client stories below to see how we’ve helped others – maybe we can help you too?

Divorce and moving on - Caroline
Caroline came to us as a new client when her divorce was about to be finalised. She had given up work to be a ‘stay at home mum’ on the birth of her first child some fifteen years ago. This, coupled with the fact that she had not had much involvement with the family finances, left her feeling in a very vulnerable position. But she was keen to take control and gain back some independence. She also had some very clear objectives.
“Nicola made the process really simple and really took the time to understand us as people." Duncan and Lindsey
Combining property assets - Martin and Vanessa
Martin and Vanessa have both been married before. Now married to each other for a number of years, they have been living in Vanessa’s property, whilst Martin retained his property for rental. They came to us to help them in reaching decisions on how to proceed, now that they thought they had reached the decision to sell both their properties, combine assets and finally purchase a property together.
