A WORD FROM OUR CLIENTS...
“I have been using Oaklands’ services since 2007, following my changed financial circumstances from divorce. Helen’s advice and handling of my investment portfolio has enabled me to become more relaxed about my financial situation and to not worry as much as I did in the early days, when handling finances was new to me.”
A WORD FROM OUR CLIENTS...
“Deciding to retire early I needed professional ongoing advice to navigate our financial future. Upon visiting Oaklands, the options were clearly explained and a risk analysis undertaken. Even during these strange times, regular reviews and conversations are taking place and I felt I made the right decision choosing Oaklands.”
A FRIEND FOR YOUR FINANCIAL JOURNEY...
THIS IS NOT A DIY SERVICE – WE TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SETTING UP YOUR PENSIONS AND SAVINGS. FOR LIFE.
No half measures. We don’t set it up then leave you all at sea. We manage your investments ongoing and hold ourselves accountable for steering you through your financial journey.
This phrase came from a client who said that’s exactly what we felt like to him, he said “you are like a friend or good neighbour who’s always got my best interests at heart.”
Whatever the reason you come to us we care. We really care. Like it’s our own money.
Tidying up bit and bobs of pensions and putting them neatly in a pot you have full control over.
Maybe transferring a final salary pension if your objectives are better met with your own pension.
Making sure you get all the tax efficiencies legally available to you to enhance your money.
Pointing the microscope on 3,000+ funds and finding the best ones to secure your retirement.
