Who we work with

We create long-term valued relationships with our clients. We will be here to support you through whatever life throws at you.

Helena Wardle

At Smith and Wardle, we work with four particular groups of clients.

By specialising in this way, we’re able to focus all our efforts on meeting your needs. And it means we’re able to get really good at what we do.

Whatever you come to us for, we aim to provide you with comfort, clarity and confidence in your financial affairs. Some of our clients come to us as experienced investors, others have never approached a financial adviser before; all tell us that they find us understanding, knowledgeable and approachable.

Planning for the future

It’s never too early to begin planning for the kind of future you want. But personal finances can be a complicated and conversations about money can feel daunting when you’re not sure where to start.

We’ll help you explore your priorities and define your goals, organise your finances and set you on the right path to achieving them. And then we’ll help to keep you on track with ongoing support and guidance for the journey.

At retirement

We can help you identify what you want for your retirement and build you a plan that allows you to progress towards your freedom years with confidence and peace of mind.
