What Do We Mean By ‘Wealth Management’?
The aim of the Wealth Management Process is to combine 2 professional skills, aimed at ‘changing the conditions of your financial life’:
• Financial Planning, and
• Investment Management
For you, our client, this means that we provide the partnership and support to help you:
• Plan for a meaningful future, and
• Take control of the wealth you accumulate.

Real Growth of Your Capital
Not surprisingly, part of Investment Management is the aim of growing money in real terms. That is, working to keep the buying power of your capital growing faster than the eroding impact of inflation.
With this in mind, it is widely acknowledged that your investment needs to benefit from the influence of financial instruments such as Gilts, Fixed Interest Securities, Property and Equities. To rely on cash-based deposits will simply not meet what’s required
Timescale (Not Timing) Is Important
To attain more consistent, long-term, real growth of capital and income… two principles must be applied, in our view:
• You must be prepared to hold your investments over a reasonable period of time, and
• Equities or shares need to be considered as part of the investment mix
A balanced investment portfolio – carefully structured in line with your changing situation and attitude to risk – is the cornerstone of our Investment Philosophy for our clients
Portfolios Founded On Rigorous Research
We operate a number of ‘model portfolios’ for our clients.
This allows us to more easily select the type of portfolio structure best suited to your individual needs and views.
Within each model, your investment will be allocated to different asset sectors e.g. Property, Gilts, Cash, Fixed Interest, Equities in different percentages.
