Our service is built around comprehensive financial planning and sound investment principles. By exploring your goals and objectives we can tailor a financial strategy specific to your needs.

Our financial planning process is broken down into a series of stages which focus on ensuring your life aspirations and the investment of your money are carefully aligned.

It’s been a delight to manage their clients and continue the hard work that has gone into raising the prosperity of those clients.

Pradeep Sharma started his advisory career in 1983 with the aim of providing an exceptional financial planning service to both private and corporate clients in the retail financial services sector. In addition to running this firm, he developed a successful career in sales management with Allied Dunbar who later became Zurich Advice Network and finally The Openwork Partnership. In 2011 he decided to leave his role as a business development director to concentrate on growing and developing his own firm.
