Our financial planning is On-line - Multi-dimensional - Non-intermediating - Values-based.


Financial planning to help you achieve your goals.


The Academy of Life Planning Limited has offered comprehensive financial planning services and personal wealth management guidance since 2012 - direct to hundreds of clients online using video conferencing - with a difference!


It's multi-dimensional. Personal wealth is not just what you have in your bank account. It's what you have in every area of your life - our service puts the financial architecture in place to support goals in every area of your life.


It's non-intermediating. These days there are great online DIY savings and investment products available to consumers direct - you don't need to hand over 25% to 35% of your life savings to a financial intermediary to choose them for you. We provide financial education to save you hundreds-of-thousands-of-pounds in fees and charges. We cut out the middlemen by offering planning without intermediation.


It's values-based. We unmask the highway robbers through fraud prevention, asset tracing and asset recovery services - plus not selling you products - so that there is a wall between advice and products - with no conflict of interest. We act in your best interest always, under our fiduciary duties. Most other financial planners are just financial intermediaries, paid 'adviser fees' contingent on making a product sale (previously known as commission). We don't sell financial products.


You may need one-off advice on a particular topic such as retirement, or a comprehensive plan for your overall finances with ongoing support. We use the global market leading lifetime cash flow software to deliver a comprehensive plan.

What is Non-Intermediary Financial Planning?

For Consumers

For Planners

For Employers

"If you don't have a plan of life, you'll never have order!" - Saint Josemaria Escriva

Appeared in the media and at major conferences.


We believe that the greatest value is added for personal financial consumers through financial planning, rather than financial intermediation.


The services on offer from the Academy of Life Planning Limited are classed as generic advice and financial education. No financial products are ever sold. No personalised advice or recommendation is ever given in relation to the buying or selling of specified investments. Without exception, we do not arrange or bring about deals, make arrangements with a view to transaction, deal, or cause dematerialised instructions relating to any investment business. We do not advise borrowers about liquidation of debt. We simply offer financial plans.


That's how we act as fiduciaries. We always put our client's best interests first. The firm caters for the 95% of the population who have limited access to financial intermediation and are underserved on account of holding investable assets below regulated financial intermediary thresholds (typically £100,000).


The Academy may refer customers, with client consent, to registered and regulated financial intermediaries where appropriate. Since the firm is not a financial intermediary, or a provider of financial products, it is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
