No-obligation discussion

During your initial consultation, at no cost, we'll discuss your personal economy and whether you could benefit from paying for our advice service.

The value of investments, and any income received from them, can fall as well as rise and you may not get back what you invested. For some investments this can happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations, as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets.

Investments in emerging markets are by their nature higher risk and potentially more volatile than those inherent in established markets.

We recommend that you should regard stock market investments as medium to long term commitments (by which we mean that you should be prepared to hold them for a period of not less than 5 years).
