OUR PHILOSOPHY

THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR BUSINESS

In order to perform our service we gather information about your knowledge, experience of investments, financial situation and investment objectives. We listen, think, then offer cost effective, diversified and risk tailored solutions to meet realistic expectations. In doing this we aim to simplify, clarify and add value while expanding the client’s knowledge. We know that every single client is different and thus we provide bespoke financial solutions to meet each of our client’s needs.

Generally we buy quality and hold for the long term. We believe in minimum trading frequency, minimum expenses and taxes. Notwithstanding this timing can still be important and we monitor market trends. We aim with our portfolio design to protect clients against the impact of low interest rates, increasing interest rates and retirement inflation. We posses an extensive research capability and use powerful software like Morningstar, Bloomberg and other numerous outlets negotiated via Bennett Wealth Planning.
