Our ethos:

Planning beats advice

Financial planning puts people, and their aspirations, first. It’s not simply about products and investment returns, it's about your life.

Passive beats active

Trying to beat the market is expensive and doesn’t work. We focus on low-cost investments backed by hard data. That's why we call it Smart Investing.

Fixed fee beats percentage

Why should it cost ten times more to invest £500,000 than £50,000? Answer: it shouldn’t. We charge a fixed fee because it’s fair.
