How is our service delivered to you?

Stage 1

Lifestyle Planning:

We have an Initial call, online meeting or in my office where you tell me about you and your current situation and the things you want to do. There is no charge at this stage as this is at our cost. This usually lasts around 45-60 mins.

Stage 2

Financial Planning

With the information gathered from our 1st meeting, we will create a financial plan which will identify your ‘X’, how much you will need to lead your current lifestyle to an age 100.

This will show you if you will to much or to little when you get to age 100. If you have too much, we can plan based on your goals or if you do not have enough, I can provide options to achieve your goals. At the end of this meeting, you will need to decide if you want to instruct my services.

Stage 3


This is where I put in place the financial products you need to achieve your financial goals.
