  Pound Cost Averaging Back to top 

When markets are depressed unit values drop. However the amount you save each month or year remains constant, so we constantly monitor the markets and buy more units when the price is low! When unit prices rise again you will obviously have a larger number of units than if the market had risen steadily.

It seems too simple doesn“t it?  Like many great ideas its beauty is in its simplicity.

Where a £10,000 pa investment over 10 years might yield £43,700 profit in a steadily rising market, with Pound Cost Averaging the difference can be as much as £123,600. These are example figures of course, finding out how much you can benefit starts with an enquiry.

  Attitude to Risk Back to top 
In contemplating your finances, are you cautious, balanced, speculative or high risk?.

Are you more interested in preserving the value of your investment than receiving a return on
your capital, or are you more than willing to accept a greater chance of a decline in value to
increase the potential for higher returns?

Find out by answering our simple 10 point questionnaire, which should only take a few
minutes and you can download here. It's an Excel document, so once you've completed it and found out your score, you can save it and send it to us as an email attachment, so we
can begin tailoring a financial solution to suit your individual attitude to risk. .
  Asset Allocation Back to top 
All investments can be categorised by their asset class i.e. what they actually invest in. No-one really knows which asset class will perform best in future but there is a rough correlation between the amount of risk taken by investing in any given asset. We always
aim to spread our clients investments over all of the asset classes with the allocation being dependent on their appetite for risk.
