We believe in giving you the very best independent advice, based on an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the whole market, and with a focus on what matters most to you.
Our core values are based around:
In both the advice we give, the way we run our business and the partners we work with, we will always work ethically, sustainably and with excellent governance.
It’s important that we give you independent advice. We’re not tied to any financial providers and we work across the whole of the market to find the right provider for your particular needs. We’re clear about fees and commissions so that you always know exactly where you stand.
Your finances are important. You want to understand how best to plan for today and for the future, and you want to be able to make changes, do things differently or plan further ahead when you’re ready. By working with you, rather than telling you what to do, we can get your planning right and work together as your needs change to make sure you’re always confident about your financial plans.
Qualifications give our clients confidence in our abilities, and they also help us to give the best advice with the benefit of all the technical knowledge we need. We have invested time and money in making sure we are highly qualified and that we keep our knowledge updated with professional development.
Being Technology Smart
We believe in the power of technology and how we can use it to help you plan better, keep track of your investments better, provide information for your family in times of need and help you access advice remotely if that’s an easier way for you to work.
“I started Switchfoot Wealth to offer financial planning that matches the way we live and work today. Using the best technology and offering expertise gained through both formal qualifications and years of working closely with clients, we are bringing financial planning into the 21st century, helping people, businesses and professional advisers make the most of their time and their money.”
