Our approach to fees

We appreciate that you may have concerns about how much financial advice will cost. You may even wonder if paying for financial advice is worth it. So, when it comes to charging fees, this is what we promise to deliver:

No upfront cost to you

We will always bear the cost of the initial ‘discovery meeting’. This is where we can discover your ambitions and goals in life. Once we understand these, we can build a financial plan designed to help you achieve them. It’s also your opportunity to discover more about us before deciding whether we’re the right financial advisors for you.

Clear and transparent

Just like our approach to providing financial advice, our fees are explained in terms which are completely clear and easy to understand. We are happy to work on an hourly rate, or a flat fixed fee, or on a fee calculated as a percentage of the investment/pension plan on which we are giving advice – whichever is agreeable to you.

You’re in control

We won’t undertake any chargeable work until we’ve agreed the fee with you. There are no ‘surprise’ charges hidden in amongst lots of paperwork. This way, you can decide whether and when we give advice and/or when we implement any recommendations.

Value for money

We work hard to make sure that your investments perform so that you can achieve your financial goals. However, financial advice isn’t just about managing your investments. It’s also about giving you the peace of mind and security that comes with knowing that your wealth is in safe hands.

Thank you. I have recommended you to a couple of other friends.


S.M., Twickenham

A client since 2018

We have been with Globe now for more than 20 years, starting with AVC's, building up and ISA portfolio and finally now managing our pension arrangements. In every case, they have taken great care in ensuring that our attitude to risk was carefully managed and this has been reflected in the performance of our investments. Their very professional approach to the complex issues involved means that we would have no hesitation in recommending them to any new potential investors.

Globe IFA has advised us through several major financial decisions, including home-buying, remortgaging, self-employment and planning for our family's financial security. They have always offered us sound advice, and we know we can trust them to help us make the right decisions.
