We decided to form a positive, energetic and effective Lifestyle Planning company which is genuinely centered around You, your interests and your dreams and aspirations.

In 2017 Dominic Hardcastle-Mills joined the team as an Independent Financial Adviser. Dominic has a wealth of financial services experience.

We have over 40 years of combined experience within the financial services sector yet take a fresh and forward thinking approach and will always operate with honesty, integrity and transparency.


Our desire is to help people achieve their Financial aspirations.

We work hard for and on behalf of our clients, however you will not find us working 60-70 hours a week, stressing and surviving on an endless supply of coffee!!

We believe that we should all strive for a better work / life balance and our time with our family and pursuing our hobbies and passions are important to us too….we are sure you will agree.

We know from our experience that we are best able to serve our clients when,  we practice what we preach by creating a successful and enjoyable work / life balance for ourselves.
