Pensions

Pension planning is becoming increasingly complex, with the government offering a range of tax incentives and the pension providers offering a plethora of different products and investment funds. But which options are the best for you personally? We can review your existing arrangements, suggest improvements and guide you through the personal pension-planning maze along with explaining how pension freedom can help to ensure your future needs are met.

We provide financial advice to those who are approaching or are at retirement. We undertake detailed research based on your personal circumstances and put in place financial planning solutions to help you maximise and protect your retirement income.

Investments

ISAs, Investment Bonds (on or offshore), OEICS, Unit Trusts or Regular Savings. Whatever the type of investment best suited to your circumstances, we will put you in an informed position and help you make the right decision.

Life Assurance

You and your family need to be protected from the effects of serious illness, premature death or accident. Critical illness, life insurance, and permanent health insurance must now seriously be considered by everyone.

We can explore with you the long term financial impact that such events could have on your current and future situations and ensure that an affordable level of financial protection is in place.

Mortgages

First time buyer or just moving on - we will find the mortgage that is right for you. Residential / Buy to Let / Commercial / Self Employed mortgages / Equity Release or Lifetime mortgages: with so much choice it’s difficult to know where to begin. We can help.

Ethical Investments

Investing ethically should not be considered the charitable option, there is no need to compromise your investment returns for your principles. By investing ethically you will be investing in the most forward thinking companies that provide green goods, services and solutions to the UK and worldwide.

This is a growth area with more and more investment opportunities becoming available. Investment in these companies is profitable plus you will be making the difference needed to address many of the social and environmental problems that we are currently facing.

Since then, the business has steadily grown and now consists of 10 financial advisers and associated support staff providing both corporate and personal independent financial advice. We pride ourselves on providing a friendly, confidential, truly independent service which is tailored to each individual's personal requirements.

Any initial consultation will be at our expense, with no obligation for you to take our advice or proceed to the next stage. Assuming you wish to take our initial discussions further, our remuneration is then set out and agreed at the beginning of the contract so nothing is hidden and there are no surprises. For further information on the service we provide please see our disclosure documents within useful documents.

If you are looking for sound, trustworthy and informed financial advice, we invite you to contact us for an initial no obligation consultation where we can identify your requirements and make informed recommendations. Our full contact details can be found in the contact us tab.

Our Services

Burton Financial Services provide financial advice which is tailored to your circumstance.

We believe that the first step to effective financial planning is not product focussed. First of all, we must obtain a clear picture of your objectives, for example whether income, capital growth or both is required. We must also determine time periods involved and the level of investment risk that you are happy to take. We also consider the taxation consequences of various investments and the most tax efficient structure for your particular circumstances.
