Our Difference

We use our experience and expertise to guide and advise our clients, solving their problems and achieving their ambitions.

As independent financial advisers, we offer advice across all the financial areas you’d expect, as well as specialising in advising clients with "later life" care needs.

Our real focus is simple - you!

We want to support you as your family grows and look ahead to your happy financial future whilst you do the things you want to achieve.

It’s not just about “looking after your money”, it’s about protecting you and your family and helping you create a happy financial life.

All the answers you need in one place.

Specialists In The Care System and Paying Care Fees

For many, the care system is confusing and unclear when it comes to the divide between health and social care, and it is a maze of red tape.

We can help:

  • explain who is responsible for providing and funding care for any particular individual, when and how much,
  • discuss your personal situation, confidentially and without obligation,
  • explain how NHS Continuing Healthcare works and review decisions,
  • review Local Authority Care Needs Assessments and Financial Assessments,
  • help get a refund if you have suffered an incorrect charge for care services,
  • advise on paying for care fees where you are a self-funder, and
  • advise on the role of Attorneys and Deputies.

If you have any questions, simply pick up the phone or drop us an email.

We will be delighted to hear from you.

What Do We Charge For Our Advice?

We don’t feel embarrassed to explain the steps of the service, the research process, the recommendation, helping to get all the paperwork needed together, for each of our clients.

We charge £150 an hour for our time-based fees and fixed-prices for most services.

There's no charge for the first hour of services, nor do we have a stopwatch whenever somebody calls or runs over on their time.

At no point would anyone not agree well in advance on what is due.

“You should get the very best advice and products tailored just for you”
