Independent, qualified and highly experienced
We’re a firm of highly qualified independent financial advisors who share over 200 years’ experience of working in the financial services profession. With an office in Twickenham, we mainly advise clients from South West London and the Home Counties.
Your trusted guide on life’s journey
We’re here to guide you on your unique financial journey. We do this by getting to know what you want from life and by understanding the finances needed to achieve those goals. With that, we design a roadmap that anticipates the inevitable twists and turns along the way.
We only ever advise clients to do what we would do if we were in their situation. We offer thoughtful, tailored advice to suit your individual needs and circumstances using plain, straightforward English.
Life rarely sticks to the straight and narrow, so we aim to stay by your side to review and refine your plan, making sure it stays relevant and keeps your finances on track.
What our clients say about us
We value our clients’ opinions and want to ensure that we continue to support them to achieve their financial goals. Results from our client survey in August 2019 show that:
I have had the pleasure of having John Pickles as my advisor for the last 14 years. He has been a great support to me while setting up my investments after my divorce. I felt very comfortable and informed, thanks to John's patience, thorough explanations and reassuring friendliness. I am kept up to date with the progress of my investments, and trust that John will keep an eye as well, advising on changes if necessary. Over the years, John's presence and help has been invaluable.
A client since 2008
Always had excellent service from Tom Fawcett and very quick to respond to any query often anticipating any query, usually just after the statements are sent out, and sends me an email beforehand pointing out any problems or not.
A client since 2001
Globe IFA (via Andrew Connolly) has given sound reliable and well-researched advice over the many years he's been handling my family trusts.
A client since 2003
I have no hesitation in recommending Globe IFA. They guided us through the SIPP process many years ago, and have continued to help map out our financial journey ever since - something that we’d have never managed alone and that has shaped our financial future.
A client since 2000
I have been a client of Globe IFA since I retired 7 years ago, and my wife also became a client about 4 years ago. We have been impressed with Globe's analysis of our financial and tax positions and their investment advice and recommendations, which have always been tailor-made for our specific circumstances (and have produced good returns over the years).
