A message from our founder

Welcome to Global Financial where we aim to look after clients and their families finances during their lifetimes and beyond.

We do our best to truly understand what is important to you so that we can work in a partnership of trust to create a life without financial worry. Our plans are built for the long-term around you and your desired lifestyle. We are not the cheapest or the most expensive – generally, neither of these are worth it. What we do, and do well, is offer a team of planners who get to know and care about you. We will always tell you the truth about your money and how it is aligned with your aspirations, rather than what you want to hear.

What we will not do, is chase the markets, which inevitably are volatile and at times make us all feel uncomfortable. We will hold you to the life plans we have built together and ensure that you never make the wrong decision, for the wrong reason at the wrong time.

Myself and my team will be delighted and honoured to assist you and your family with building the secure future you long for, with genuine financial freedom.
