Our Philosophy

Many years ago, betrayed by poor investment advice, the shock of losing money made Ray turn his anger and frustration to positive effect by reading and researching investments, and everything financial. His findings surprised him, firstly that there were considerable differences between investment winners and losers, secondly that this information was not publicised more widely by the media.

He feels that little has changed, that many clients are effectively patronised and end up with mediocre investment portfolios, surely nobody should have to put up with that. The extensive research that Ray still carries out, and his unique approach to fund selection and trend investing strategies, identify sectors and funds with potential before the wider market catches on.

Worried about your future standard of living if your pensions and investments underperform? If you have over £500,000 of investments and pension funds and would like a second opinion, let’s talk …

The accrual of wealth is not totally dependent on how you invest your money. To increase your net worth over your lifetime requires order and organization, i.e. doing the right things, at the right time, in the right way.

Financial & Investment Planning

Investment planning plays an important role as part of the financial planning process. To realize your future lifestyle aims, you should seek out a knowledgeable adviser who can provide you with pro-active ongoing advice. Without such an advisor, the current market environment will impact on your ability to achieve expected returns going forward, it is important to have a strategy that provides flexibility to adjust a portfolio in response to changing investment markets.

Business Financial & Motivational Planning

You can make a living as a sole trader, but you are unlikely to create wealth. One of the best ways of creating wealth is to own your own business and employ others to assist you. If you have chosen a limited liability company, then you will have several advantages that other forms of trading entity do not have. You will have well-meaning business advisers naturally but often they are not entrepreneurial and may not be best placed to assist you to move forward.

Achieve Your Goals

Although your overriding requirement is accruing and protecting your wealth, to achieve those goals requires us to take account of many different issues, options, and possibilities.

If for instance you’re retired, the arrangements we propose are likely to be quite different from those we would recommend for a business owner or an employee.

But in every instance, we take things one step at a time and we’re thorough – extremely thorough. Before we get anywhere near investments, we sort out the essentials. So irrespective of your employment status, our first step will be an examination of your will and insurances.
