What does it cost me?
Our initial meeting is free. We will offer a menu of services, from which you can choose should you wish to proceed.
What does the initial meeting involve?
It is a good idea to collect together details of your income and assets, including pensions, savings and investments to get the best from the initial meeting.
It is also worth spending some time thinking about your money goals and priorities. What is it you want to do, eg.
- Choose an annuity
- Mitigate Inheritance tax
- Set up investments for children or grandchildren
- Maximise income from your investments
We will discuss your individual needs and what you are looking for at the meeting.
We will often need to review existing investments to help us assess where you are, so recent investment and pension statements are useful to have to hand.
By the end of the meeting, we will know if we can help you and if you are happy to proceed to the recommendation stage, with an understanding of the cost involved.
