What makes us different?

When it comes to our approach and the way we work, you’ll find that we do things a little differently compared to your average financial adviser. Here’s how:

We put your goals and aspirations at the forefront

It might be controversial in this industry, but we’ve always said it’s not about the money. It’s about what you get out of it.

We focus on understanding and defining your biggest goals in life before anything else so that your finances (and the rest) will follow.

We’re proper financial planners

Our service isn’t about selling you a product. As financial planners, we make sure our focus is always on you.

We work with you to realise your hopes and dreams and use cash flow modelling to forecast exactly what you’ll need to achieve them financially.

We’re independent

We’re a totally independent firm, which means we have the kind of freedom that restricted advisers don’t.

It means we can recommend providers with your best interests in mind, with a much wider choice of who we can work with. It allows us to be bespoke and totally tailored to you.

We’re Kinder accredited

Darren is a fully qualified Registered Life Planner (RLP), having completed his training at the Kinder Institute of Life Planning.

This means he possesses the unique skills and knowledge required to help his clients align their life goals and their financial goals and set them on the path to achieving them.
