How much will it cost?

As lifestyle financial planners we focus on planning your finances not selling you products, unlike many independent financial advisers.

We therefore charge fees based upon the time we spend working with and for you.

For planning and advice we have a menu of fixed fees based on our standard hourly rate.

For establishing new pensions and investments we charge a 1% implementation fee.

We charge 0.5% per annum for funds under management, which pays for the cost of monitoring and reviewing the investment portfolio as well as managing the investment risk.
