Our aims, our team and our dedication to our clients is what differentiates us from the crowd. Before we give any advice, we take the time to listen to your needs and requirements. When we’re ready to provide financial advice, it’s given in a straightforward way using practical and innovative solutions to deliver cost-effective plans for you and your business.
We have considerable experience designing safe portfolios that still deliver satisfactory returns. When circumstances demand it we are prepared to advise radical action.
In September 2007 our advisers instructed clients to exit the stock market as well as commercial property markets and invest in safer cash and money market funds. This sheltered our clients from the huge losses suffered across the world. In 2008 our advisers instructed clients to withdraw any deposits lodged in Icelandic banks in advance of them going into administration. Once more this protected our clients from large losses and saved them countless sleepless nights.
We have embraced the latest technology to allow you access to information and analysis on your fund and portfolio. We provide instant online access to valuations, an assessment of your progress against investment goals and allow secure messaging between you and your adviser.
We also provide secure online storage for all important documents, which are available 24/7 via any desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. All our technology meets regulatory requirements for information security.
Advanced Asset Consultants is truly independent. We are not linked to any one insurance or investment group and can, therefore, act throughout the whole of the market in your best interests.
Our highly trained independent financial advisers and support staff hold excellent qualifications from the Chartered Insurance Institute and have extensive industry experience. All advisers undertake an additional 30–50 hours of study every year to maintain the strict standards we require.
We are committed to improving our knowledge and are currently on course to achieving chartered status. We believe achieving chartered status is the most appropriate way to demonstrate our experience and expertise to our clients.
We know you expect more than professional expertise from your financial advisers. You also need approachable people who really understand how important your finances are to you.
Our support staff combine extensive experience with strong formal backgrounds. Most are qualified to the same standard as a financial adviser and hold a diploma in financial planning.
We know that the cost of care for the elderly is a massive concern for many clients and their families. All our advisers hold the Long-term Care CII Qualification, Advanced Pension Qualifications (AF3), Discretionary Investment Management Certificates (J10), the Securities Advice and Dealing Paper (J12) and are familiar with the latest Pension update programme launched in July 2015 (R08).
