what does our ongoing service look like?

Financial Reviews

Meet with your Financial Planner at least once a year to discuss your financial plan. Make sure you're always on the right track, and review your existing plan to make sure it still suits your circumstances.

Investment Management

Your investments are always aligned with your risk level, as well as your capacity for loss with our financial planning. If your circumstances or appetite for risk changes, we can adjust your portfolio for you easily.

Next Generation

If leaving a legacy behind for your loved ones is a priority for you, look at the best way to make that happen. Make sure your loved ones have it as easy as they possibly can when you pass away.

Access To Our App

The My WoA app allows you to keep track of your investment performance, so you always know how your plan is doing. You can easily contact a member of our team whenever you need to, and upload any documents that you want to keep secure.

Client Events

We hold at least one client event per year, usually in January at Durham Cricket Club. Our clients get a day of food, drinks and interesting talks from fund managers and our financial planners. Our 2024 event was quite the hit with our clients!

Regular Updates

Stay up to date with recent market news and performance with monthly Market Update videos. We also create helpful videos which explain financial terms, such as Annuities and the Money Purchase Annual Allowance.
