What service you can expect from Steven

He provides personal and comprehensive service which includes the following 5 stage process: –

Stage 1 – Life Planning
Helping you to understand where you would like to be in the future from a life planning perspective

Stage 2 – Discovery
Investigate any existing provision for you and explain to you in clear language to help you better appreciate what provision you already have towards your life goals.

Stage 3 – Crunching the numbers
Steven will identify if you have any shortfall between your existing provision and your aspirations. Indeed, you may have exactly the right amount of provision or perhaps you have more money than you need.

Stage 4 – Building your plan
After discussing the first 3 stages together, Steven should then be in a position to start to build a financial plan for you, including arranging any changes to existing provision, setting up any required new plans etc

Stage 5 – Reviewing your plan
Life isn’t static and neither should your plan be. Your financial life plan will be a guide to keep checking in on to ensure you are on track to be where you want to be with your life goals. Steven will review your planning needs with you on a regular basis and agree continued action with you.
