We are covered by the FSCS. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim.


Most types of investment business are covered up to a maximum limit of £85,000.


Insurance advising and arranging is covered for 90% of the claim, without any upper limit.

Best Execution

Under the FCA rules we are obliged to comply with the obligation to act in accordance with the best interests of our clients when transmitting orders to other entities for execution. For most of the Financial Products we arrange there is only one execution venue and the price paid will be that stated by the product provider. We will review our order execution arrangements annually.

Further Important Provisions

For some Financial Products, you will have a right to withdraw or cancel the contract within a certain period.
