Affiliated to a select group of successful wealth advisers from Lighthouse Group plc, Lighthouse Impact Ltd's approach means that you, the customer will receive truly impartial advice that aims to have your best financial interests at heart.
Whilst many financial companies bombard people with jargon and endless information that only confuses people, we seek to simplify financial decisions by empathising with clients' situations and then recommending personalised financial solutions.
Our expertise and successful investment track record has been as a result of building, monitoring and progressively developing and improving our own investment portfolios - designed for the needs of our clients.
Lighthouse Impact Ltd uses impartial, specialised, sophisticated and dynamic research processes to ascertain, review and develop clients' investment portfolios.
This is with the aim of optimising clients' investment performance potential in accordance with changing personal, financial and stock market circumstances.
This is in sharp contrast to many other financial advisers and companies who delegate their investment decisons to third parties, thereby losing control of the precision; composition; optimisation and rationale of their investment processes.
We firmly believe in educating our clients with the intention that they understand their financial affairs and the consequences of their financial decisions. Time is carefully given to develop individual financial advice for our clients that suit their personal situation.
By using this approach we aim to ensure our clients become more financially aware and are clearer about not only what course of action to take but also, more importantly, why they should follow that particular strategy.
After all, if you do not understand your own financial affairs, how do you know that your adviser is putting YOU first?
