We charge fees for our services on a basis agreed with you before we start work.

Our fees for advising on investment strategy and investment management services are generally based on a percentage of the value of funds we invest and manage for you. Fees may be paid by cheque or direct transfer or, in whole or part, deducted from the funds invested.

Investments should be reviewed so they continue to meet with your objectives.  The fees for this can change as it is based on the sum of money currently invested. You are able to change or cancel this service.

Other services, such as one-off advice on tax or life insurance, are available at a fee agreed with you.
