Our community activities

We’re a small team, but we do what we can to support those charities and community groups which are important to us. Here are a few examples of what we’ve done in recent years.

Mitchemp Trust

Two teams from Globe took part in the Invesco Perpetual Highland Adventure Race, involving mountain biking for 35 miles, followed by canoeing for 9 miles, then climbing Ben Nevis the following day. Together, Globe’s two teams raised over £12,000 for the Mitchemp Trust, which helps disadvantaged kids who are struggling.

Help for Heroes

John Pickles from Globe was one of over 300 challengers to take part in a cycling challenge through France. The 300-mile trip started in Senneville-sur-Fécamp and ended at Dunkirk. The funds raised by kind donations from colleagues, clients, product providers, family and friends was over £7,400.

The Russell School

We’ve helped The Russell School to successfully apply for two grants from Aviva. The money has been used to build an outdoor play beach and tree fort, providing fantastic learning resources for the children. The next project will be to put a canopy over the facilities so that the children can use it in all weathers.

Annual Thames Draw Off

This event is jointly hosted by Be Richmond and Environment Trust. With lock gates left open for maintenance, the river through Richmond empties at low tide, giving an opportunity to clear rubbish from the riverbed. Three members of the team were delighted to help in the clean-up event in 2019 and look forward to next year.

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 was introduced to Tom when I first started out in my career. As my situation and needs have changed Tom has tailored his advice, always willing to take the time to explain and meet with me face to face to discuss my needs. I have 100% trust and confidence that my interests are put first and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom or his colleagues.


Ruth Beadle, Wandsworth

A client since 2008

Working with my IFA at Globe has certainly developed my understanding of many aspects of investment, whether that be the complicated "rules" around pensions or the strategies available for protection of my other investments against Inheritance Tax. I now actually feel safe that I am getting the best advice for my needs and not the benefit of the investment industry.


Neale Brooks, Reading

A client since 2010

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.


Mrs Isabelle Tilden, London

Simon Riggall, Chiswick

A client since 2007

As myself and my wife approached retirement we found ourselves needing advice on the various company pensions and other investments we had accumulated over our working lives. Globe gave us a clear understanding of our investment choices and arranged our pensions in a more structured easier to manage format. We found them straightforward to deal with and would recommend to anyone looking for financial advice.


Paul Bird, Feltham

A client since 2019

C.B., London

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.

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.
