Our clients are typically self-made, successful individuals who are EITHER building towards financial independence, OR are already financially independent of their work and are seeking to ensure their money lasts at least as long as they do. We work closely with our clients to enable them to achieve this, whilst ALSO continuing to enjoy and make the most of their current lifestyles.

Many of our clients are SME business owners or retired business owners. Almost all of our clients, regardless of how or why they came to us share one thing in common; they rely on their own wealth and resources to maintain their (and often their families’) lifestyles and financial security for the rest of their (and their families’) lives.

After selling our business we reinvested the proceeds of our lifetime’s work with Collingbourne, who also took to looking after our pension funds. Their expert personal attention has successfully guided us and our family for well over two decades and Martin has always been available when needed. We cannot speak too highly of him and his personnel.

We are very selective over who we work with, we have a relatively small number of high-net-worth clients. We only work with clients where we believe we can add significant value (far in excess of our fees), who we like and with whom we can build long-term relationships.

If for whatever reason we don’t believe this will be the case, we always highlight this as soon as possible and do our best to point you in the direction of someone who we believe can help.
