How we help

Our advice is based on 4 key areas:


From ISAs, unit trusts and investments bonds


Expert retirement planning and pension advice

Inheritance tax/trust

Things are ever-changing under the legislation and the opportunities for inheritance tax reviews need to be made on a regular basis.

Life & income protection

You never know what is around the next corner or if you should be forced to stop work through illness or injury.

We’re here for you

Put simply, we work tirelessly to help to ensure your investments are performing to their maximum potential, based on the level of risk you are comfortable with.

We pride ourselves on giving you the best advice available on how to manage your savings and investments in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, and we meet with our clients on a regular basis to talk through investment performance.

We have developed the Applewood Process™ which is a tried and trusted method of delivering the very best advice to suit your needs.

“I find him (David) reliable, dependable, hard-working and extremely professional.
In our meetings he has the ability to explain sometimes complicated financial matters
in a clear, concise and convincing manner.
Furthermore, if I have a problem he willingly makes time to address my concerns.”

CJ of Newcastle-under-Lyme

“Alex provided me with excellent advice for investing my pension pot
without too much of a risk but still providing me with an income
similar to what an annuity would have done, and leaving me with
options for future needs. He gave honest and easy to understand
advice and I am absolutely happy with the value for money service.”

JT of Cheshire
