Responsible Business

We are more than just a business. What we do makes a difference to individuals, to families, and to society.

We’re proud to publish our latest Responsible Business Report, highlighting the great progress we have made on our responsible business journey. We aim to play our part in the global effort to reach net zero by 2050. And we aim to uphold the highest standards in our conduct with clients, colleagues, the communities in which we operate, and society as a whole.

We take pride in helping people realise their dreams

We are committed to our employees’ wellbeing, creating an environment where they can bring their whole selves to work.

We commit to act responsibly in all of our business practices, ensuring we are fair and transparent throughout the value chain.

We seek to make a positive impact in our communities, in society and on the environment.

To bring about change, we need to concentrate our efforts in areas where we can make the biggest difference. That may often mean joining forces with others.

Our commitment to customers

We help our clients achieve their long-term goals by creating a financial plan centred around them. We believe that a good financial plan can help change people’s lives, giving them and their loved one’s peace of mind.

A personal touch

When it comes to giving financial advice, our clients are at the centre of what we do. Our advisers listen and take the time to build long-term trusted relationships with our clients, giving them the confidence they need to stay on track with their finances.

We are inclusive

We’re committed to offering simple, accessible and affordable advice to more people, helping to create a society where everyone sees the value of a great financial plan.

Trust is key

When it comes to our clients’ money, we take our responsibility very seriously. Our advisers look after our clients’ investments with care, knowledge, and expertise. Our partnership with two of the largest names in the UK financial services industry - Lloyds Banking Group and Schroders – means our clients can trust us to make the right choices for them.

Committed to making a difference

We’re committing to making a difference across five important key areas for our clients, employees, the businesses we work with, the communities in which we work, and the environment.

  • Being a responsible business - The Good Business Charter

  • Being a sustainable business

  • Being a diverse and inclusive business

  • Promoting wellbeing

  • Community and charity.

Our inaugural Responsible Business Report outlined our ambition to be a sustainability leader in the wealth management sector.

The report reflected the initial phase of our journey, establishing our responsible business principles and commitments in line with the Good Business Charter.


Our second report highlights that we continued on the same journey we envisioned back in 2021.

We were extremely proud to receive re-accreditation by the Good Business Charter, continuing to fulfil all ten of their responsible business criteria.


Our latest report shows the great progress we have made on our journey towards being a responsible business.

We’re delighted to see that our overall Scope 1-3 emissions are the lowest since we launched our inaugural Responsible Business Report.
