We’ll help you move in the right direction
Financial Fitness Planning Process
Financial planning is a very personal matter. No two people have identical circumstances, ambitions and needs. What’s more, needs often change over time and everyone’s financial situation is different. The financial fitness plan we produce for you is also unique and individually tailored to suit your particular needs.

Our planning process is summarised in the following stages:
Identify your needs
As a first step, we will arrange an introductory meeting. This meeting is at our expense – note that our time and our meetings have real value. We will explain fully how the service works, discuss your primary financial needs and objectives and then answer your initial questions. By hearing how we work with our clients, you’ll have the opportunity to make sure that our service will be of value to you. If we like each other, this is an opportunity to discuss how we can work together.
If we agree to work together, we will go into much greater detail with you, looking at your objectives and developing them into well defined goals. At the same time we will gather detailed financial information to give you a comprehensive picture of your finances and commitments.
Identify your risk profile
One key element in the financial planning process is to identify your comfort level when we talk about investment risk. We will ask you to complete a scientifically developed questionnaire to help create your investment risk profile. We will then discuss the outcome with you to ensure you are confident it reflects your real views.
Prepare an analysis
Once these details have been agreed with you, the information is used to complete a personal bespoke financial fitness plan. This includes a complex analysis of your current financial position, and looks to identify any areas where it is felt your existing financial arrangements could be more effective, or where you have no plans in place, to achieve your stated objectives.
Develop a plan of action
Now, with a full understanding of your circumstances and priorities, we construct your financial fitness plan. This report sets out specific and realistic recommendations designed to achieve your stated objectives, both in the short and longer term.
Implement your plan
We will then present you with your own financial fitness plan. At this meeting each recommendation will be carefully explained and all your questions answered. It is, of course, your decision whether to implement those strategies in full, or in part. Attainment of your goals, whether it be some or all of the recommendations will only arise from positive action and your own desire to make this happen.
Monitor your progress
As a client of ours, your Asset and Lifestyle Management Programme is regularly reviewed. We make sure that your financial fitness plan is working towards achieving its objectives. Each review also takes account of any changes in your personal circumstances, finance market conditions and relevant legislation.
What we do makes our clients feel good.
