We believe great things can be achieved when people work as a team. That’s why we’re very happy to partner with fellow professionals, where clients have more than one adviser, to share our expertise and ensure clients’ goals and objectives are achieved.
By working in a joined-up way, we can ensure the totality of your clients’ needs are addressed and that no opportunities for solutions to their challenges are missed.
As one of a very small number of UK firms to be both Chartered by the Chartered Institute of Insurance and Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment, our technical expertise is recognised as meeting the highest possible standards. And our advice and client care has been recognised in the many awards we have received as a firm.
We provide advice and holistic financial planning for clients who are:
- Seeking divorce or separation
- Undertaking estate planning
- Inheritance Tax planning
- Long-Term Care planning
- Planning a business sale or business expansion
- Buying or selling a home
- Going through Probate.
Why choose a SIFA Professional?
As a solicitor, you will know that there are often many layers to your clients’ challenges. And that solutions often require a multi-disciplinary approach. By partnering with a financial planning firm, you can help your clients address the financial aspects of their needs. However, not all financial advisers and planners are able to provide a conflict-free service or have the appropriate qualifications and expertise to equip them to do this specialist work.
As SIFA Professionals, our focus is on building effective, valuable and compliant relationships with solicitors and other legal professionals, in the best interests of clients.
SIFA (Solicitors Impartial Financial Advice) was established in 1992 to help firms harness the natural synergies between financial and legal professionals and SIFA Professional was launched in 2009 as a response to the Legal Services Act. As a member of SIFA Professional, we are free from third party influence, can provide conflict-free advice and, importantly, we are kept updated on all the changes in the legal-regulatory landscape.
Our SIFA Professional accreditation also means that we have a listing in the Law Society-endorsed directory of professional advisers.
In a crowded market, solicitors who can address the financial aspects of their clients’ needs will be one step ahead of the competition.
