Financial Planning at Rathbones

It’s reassuring to have a clear plan for the future of your finances. Working one-to-one with our financial planners, you’ll have access to their advice, and their ability to plan ahead to help you achieve your goals. 

They’ll aim to ensure you’re better placed to manage financial situations you may not have anticipated.

We will start by getting to know you and your current and long-term needs as well as any personal goals. Using this information, we will work with you to create clear and precise financial objectives to work towards, aiming to reduce complexity and help you focus on what matters to you. Because the best financial plans are always built around individual goals.

You will be looked after by a small team that knows you and your personal situation. Your financial planner will be your key contact. You will be supported by members of the team and they will often attend meetings. The team also has access to a range of in-house experts, researchers and analysts who they can call upon when needed or to at-tend meetings when required.
