Rebalance Your Money and Your Life: Keeping in touch with the outside world via internet is the new normal!

The global economic emergency disrupts money, the global medical emergency disrupts life. Which do you prioritise?


Your Money or Your Life  


Our priorities are of course our family’s health and wellbeing. But by choosing health, are we choosing hardship? In time, things will become clearer and society will be looking to get back to 'normal'. You now have the time to reflect. 


Do we go back to PLAN A, or is it time for a PLAN B? 


At no time has planning been more important. What you need is ...


... safe access from home to advice you can trust on how to review and rebalance your money and your life.


For crucial life and money decisions, you can’t just put things on hold and do nothing. You have important choices to make. You need answers. All of which means that life and money advice simply can't wait. You need a solid PLAN B for your life; backed up by a revised financial plan for your money, an investment philosophy you believe in and an accessible and dependable financial adviser who has your best interests at heart.

Mingling with people may be out – at least for a while.  You needn’t face big decisions alone. Waiting until later is not always an option. Your life and money adviser should be here for you. Here to show you. Show you the steps you can take. The eight steps to build PLAN B. Right now. While you have time to reflect deeply on the world you want!


Delaying a life or money decision may have unforeseeable or undesirable consequences, and in general it is better to act in plenty of time. Therefore, during these unprecedented times, remote advice will be the way forward for many more people.



How I digitised a life planning proposition

As coronavirus causes swathes of the population to go into long-term isolation, how can a business based on conversation, questioning and listening stay active? One life planner has made the jump already.

Personal Financial Planning from a Remote Financial Adviser Near Me

Working with a good online financial adviser can help you through these unprecedented times. Help you see past the headlines and cultivate discipline and a sense of security. With focus on the here and now, mindful of the impact decisions may have on the future. Sourcing income. Considering essential spending. Prioritising necessity over luxury. Knowing you have taken steps to protect your finances and put in place a well-thought-out PLAN B.


When you are looking for a financial adviser near you, consider a remote financial adviser working on-line. Financial planning can be brought to you online direct by video telephony systems, real-time messaging and content sharing - you can work with us safely from your home or workplace.


Remote advice will be the way forward for many more people.


The coronavirus outbreak means that mingling with people may be out – at least for a while.  You needn’t face big decisions alone. Waiting until later is not always an option. Your financial adviser should be there for you to answer questions remotely.


Financial planning can help you whether or not you have life savings. Whether you're a borrower or a lender, simply begin planning where you are. 


Non-intermediating financial planning lowers the cost of financial advice and is accessible and suitable for a much wider audience.


Whatever your age, wealth bracket, lifestyle, values, preferences or location - we tailor-make a detailed and personal financial plan that's just right for you. So, tell us. What is it that you truly desire?

How does Remote Financial Planning work?

We are Life Planning …

When you plan with us, you can be sure we put your best interest first. All our life planners aren’t product salespeople, they are appropriately qualified advisers who act independently of product providers. Use our planners to make sure there’s a wall between advice and product – including non-intermediating, fee-only, fiduciary services, personal coaching and more.

Have a conversation with us on-line and avoid rash, and, ultimately, costly mistakes with your finances. Allowing you to always and continuously feel confident about all your financial decisions. We can help you to decide which solutions are best for you in the complex and volatile world of financial services during unprecedented times.


Our on-line financial planning service provides a personal way to help you achieve your goals. By listening to your circumstances and financial aspirations, answering all of your questions along the way, we can help you to create the right financial plan for you.


Our On-line Financial Planning includes:

Seeking financial planning advice at the right time can help provide peace of mind for you and your family's future. 


Unmasking the highway robbers: 


Learn the secrets the bankers didn't want us to share, secrets like the real reason they don't sign up to fiduciary responsibilities.


Use our vast experience and expertise to help avoid scammers with our investment due diligence service and avoid paying unnecessary management charges on your investments with our financial education. Save literally hundreds-of-thousands of pounds over your lifetime by avoiding these dangers.


We provide empirical evidence from leading and highly credible academic researchers, from top respected institutes, such as Which? (see example) that exposes the trickery and deceptions shockingly hidden in financial services that's costing you a great big chunk of your life savings. 


We offer you the money-saving, comprehensive financial planning services ... that the highway robbers would prefer we didn't - direct, on-line, via video to you, to your home or workplace, wherever and whenever.


Hear how an expert on-your-side, who has no vested interest in the products you choose to use, provides specialist and impartial guidance, trusted planning, generic advice and financial education.


We provide the plans you can trust; with our guidance and education you choose your own products wisely and effortlessly.


We are not financial intermediaries. No products are sold. We provide generic advice and financial education for self-implemented solutions. Because we don't take commission, or adviser charges contingent on product purchase, you are guaranteed that there is no conflict of interest and we place your best interests first. We call this our fiduciary obligation.


We sell plans, not products!

Make big decisions, confidently.

When it comes to life's big decisions, finding an adviser that places your best interest first can make all the difference.
