Money is a token you swap for your next adventure

You can’t predict the future, but you are free to create your own.

Finance isn’t exciting, but designing your life is. We believe life is a journey and money is a token you swap for your next adventure. Here’s how we work with you to make your dreams happen.

Here’s what to expect when you work with us

Our Pricing

We believe in straightforward pricing, with no nasty surprises. That’s why we tell you our pricing upfront.

  •  First meeting there is no cost to you.
  • The second meeting is chargeable, see “financial planning fee”, but if after the meeting you can honestly say it’s been of no use to you and you do not like how we present financial planning to you, then you would not want to work with us going forward so we will waive this fee. That’s our satisfaction guarantee. At the second meeting you will be presented with a full Fee and Service Agreement so you know exactly what you will pay if you instruct us.
  • Thirdly, once a plan is agreed, we will go about implementing the financial plan for you and there are additional charges for this, as detailed under “implementation fees” here.
