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.
We’re raising money for Dementia UK through our Introduction Incentive Programme. We’ll make a £50 donation for each person our clients introduce to us, who then book an initial meeting. It doesn’t matter whether that’s a remote or a face-to-face meeting, and there’s no requirement for them to become a client.
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:
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
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).
A client since 2012
Thank you so much Michael, this is all such a help. Great to have clarity.
A client since 2020
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.
