let us introduce ourselves.

Chris Breward founded Wealth of Advice in 2011 because he felt the financial services world needed a straight-talking, no-nonsense approach to financial advice.

Since then, we've grown to a team of 18 people who are actively invested in making sure your financial plan stays on the right track, and we've met some amazing clients along the way.


financial advice for life.

We offer a service that we hope will last a lifetime, looking after everything of a financial nature for you and your family.


There's no wool-pulling with us. We're a "look you in the eye" type of partner. What we say might not always be what you want to hear, but it'll always be in your best interest.


We pride ourselves on how approachable and friendly we are. We make our clients feel comfortable, we make the process feel easy, and we enjoy ourselves while we do it.


Hard work and a thirst for knowledge fuel this business - that's why we're a Chartered firm. We're always looking to improve and grow - whether that's our service or our qualifications.

Don't just take our word for it.

We could sit here and write an essay on why we think we're the best at what we do, but we'd rather let our clients do the talking for us.

Take John for example, who attended our Annual Client Conference in January this year. We managed to sit down and ask him a few questions about the event, as well as how he feels about the service we provide.
