The information on this site is there to educate you and help you learn more about financial planning.

If you would like me to provide you with regulated advice personally, then this would be done through the Independent Financial Adviser practice that I work in, Chiltern Consultancy Ltd.

I provide a wide range of financial planning advice to our personal and private clients.
Financial planning is all about achieving the things that are important to you in life. You may want to retire early, buy a holiday home or help your children through university or to buy a house. Whatever your ambitions, you need a structured financial plan to get your personal finances in order and your money working efficiently.


Simply put, investing is the process of putting aside money which we don't need to spend now, so that we have more to spend in the future.

What we all aim for is achieving a good return on that money.

For most style of investing the returns will not be guaranteed and can be affected by market conditions.

We will help you establish your needs and actions and make recommendations based on your personal circumstances and in line with your investment requirements.

The value of pensions and investments can fall as well as rise, you may get back less than you invested.

Estate Planning

Passing away with to much money is a problem for a lot of people and having no plan in place can often lead your loved ones with less of your estate or an unexpected Inheritance Tax bill. Sound financial planning allows you to distribute your money in the way that you want, to the people you want it to go to after you die.

The Financial Conduct Authority do not regulate inheritance tax planning.

Equity Release

Equity Release is a way of releasing the wealth tied up in your property, without having to sell it and move to another home. You could choose to either borrow against the value of your home or sell all or part of it in exchange for a lump sum or regular monthly income. It may also be possible to take further monies from your property at a later date, if required.

Equity Release is designed to help customers over the age of 55 who either own their property outright, or have small mortgages left to pay.

Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and can affect your eligibility for means tested benefits.
