Financial planning explained

There’s more to growing or protecting your money than just numbers on a spreadsheet. With a personalised financial plan, you can enjoy real benefits, and it’s simpler than you might think.

The true value of financial advice

These days, there’s more information than ever available at our fingertips. So why do you need to pay for financial advice, and can’t you just do it yourself?

A study by the International Longevity Centre and Royal London found that people in the UK who worked with an experienced financial professional between 2001 and 2006 were on average £47,706 wealthier after 10 years than those who didn’t. That’s the kind of difference we hope to demonstrate to you when we work together.

What our
clients say

My husband and I were looking for some assistance with investing our pensions but struggling to know what to do for the best. Andy was professional, open, and transparent, and he made the whole process very straightforward. We would highly recommend using his services.

Jeanette and Paul Martin

Andy has worked with us since 2018, and we are exceptionally happy with the service we have received. He is thoroughly professional and has provided us with excellent advice in an easy-to-understand and friendly manner.

Rob and Philippa Bancroft

Andy has provided financial management for my parents for several years. I now hold power of attorney for their affairs, and Andy has given us relevant advice on Inheritance Tax and estate management promptly and with clear, detailed documentation. He is very personable in his manner and approach and has been most helpful.

As an accountant specialising in the financial services sector, I know a lot of IFAs. But I’ve chosen to deal with Andy and the team at Escott Wealth Management to look after my own investments.
