We exist to help people realise their potential by unlocking the power of financial planning and aim to build personalised financial plans for more clients than any other financial institution.
This vision is underpinned by three simple values:
We are empathetic
We translate the cold, complicated language of finance into words that mean something to our clients.
We are entrepreneurs
We may be employed and unbiased, but we approach our work with the hunger and ingenuity of an entrepreneur.
We change lives
We believe what we do makes a difference to individuals, to families and to society
Feels like home
There’s a life at work and a life outside work. We support and encourage flexible working and offer a market-leading package that rewards great performance and enables you to choose benefits which suit your needs, including:

Generous DC pension scheme
Private medical insurance
Bi-annual health screening

We offer a 4% monthly allowance, which you can exchange for a variety of benefits, including bikes for cycling to work, discounts on gym memberships and dental insurance; or you can simply receive cash.
We are proud of our reward package, and are committed to delivering fair outcomes, based on performance, not personal characteristics.

Gender Pay Gap
Our vision is for all colleagues, whatever their role or circumstance, to have the resources and flexibility they need to achieve what’s important to them, both inside and outside work. We are committed to doing more to ensure all colleagues have equal opportunities, for example, through promoting agile working, supporting career progression of those with high potential, and being certain our recruitment process leaves no room for bias. Measuring and addressing the gender pay gap plays a huge part.
The gender pay gap is the measure of the difference in average pay between all men and all women across an organisation, expressed as a percentage. It is regardless of their role, seniority, length of service or location and any other differentiating factors. It helps us to identify what is working as well as addressing where more action is needed to support and empower women as we grow our business. This is our first Gender Pay Report as a business, and we are committed to monitoring the numbers closely over the coming years, and doing more to improve gender diversity.
