Prudent saver? We can help you Prosper.

You have made some good decisions and have always been sensible with your finances. You live a comfortable lifestyle but your spending habits are not extravagant. You most likely have a good sized pension and have accumulated cash savings over the years.

You are looking to make sure that your future is secure and that your investments out perform the inflation rate and steadily grow your wealth.

“All queries, however small, are dealt with in a helpful and positive manner.”

Our Prosper service is designed to help you achieve clarity on your current financial position. Once we have done this you can focus on your dreams for the future and we will help you design a clear plan on how to get there.



As you think to your future and consider your finances, you will most likely be worried about things like inheritance tax and care fees. Using the figures you provide to us we can take you through each of these areas and show you how much you will need based on different projected scenarios.


Our Prosper service provides you with clarity on your financial position which gives you a better perspective on what is of the most importance to you. Until you have this clearly defined it is difficult to start focussing on your long term goals and crafting a plan for your financial future.


You will be keen to make sure that you keep steadily building your wealth whilst avoiding the need to take unnecessary risks. We can guide you through your options and suggest the right path to take to suit your needs and maximise the assets that you have worked so hard to acquire.


We find that our Prosper service can be quite enlightening for many of our clients in your position. Once we have shown you your personalised financial projections, you may be surprised to find that you already have enough to retire.


Financial planning enables you to live the life that you want while you are still fit enough to do so. You will be able to make complex decisions more easily and relax in the knowledge that you and your family are going to be secure no matter what happens. Ultimately our Prosper service aims at giving you financial freedom and letting you live life your way.


We will manage your investments so that you can sit back and watch your wealth grow, safe in the knowledge that your assets are generating your desired income and your money is being looked after by regulated experts with a proven track record for growth and a genuine dedication to customer care.

Prudent saver financial planning process

The discovery meeting is all about finding out about you. We need to understand what’s important to you, and what your primary goals are for the future.  We ask a series of questions that are designed to get you to focus on what you want from the rest of your life. Our clients find this process extremely valuable and enlightening.

By now you will have received a printed proposal outlining our costs. In the Fact Find meeting we will start a comprehensive data analysis of your current and future spending patterns as well as looking at your current income, expenditures, and looking at details of what assets and liabilities you have.

During this meeting we will run through your financial plan and look at different scenarios and the routes you can take to achieve your goals. Using our planning software you will immediately be able to see the benefits of any products or investments we have recommended. This is a highly collaborative and interactive stage and puts you at the centre of your financial decisions.

Now that we have set out your goals and have a clear financial plan in place to achieve them, we can begin implementing an investment management portfolio or arranging the appropriate financial products. Now you can sit back and relax as we work hard to help you achieve the life you dream of.
