Financial planning with you at the heart

Financial Planning is more than simply helping you save, invest or pick the right financial product. It’s about understanding what is important to you, the life you would like to lead and being able to give you the peace of mind that you are not alone in making the big, the small or the difficult decisions that life throws our way.

Life is a unique journey for everyone, that is why for over 40 years we have stood by our clients’ side and helped them each step of the way.

Coronavirus – Business as Usual

Smith & Pinching will maintain its services to clients and to other individuals who need guidance. Our business continuity plan was implemented on 12th March and has been ramped up as each briefing has been received by our Government. Our staff will mainly be working from home until we have Government clearance to return to the office. Our investment team continues to do a sterling job in these difficult markets and can continue to operate seamlessly with their planning colleagues, proving the value of not having to delegate to third parties for this function. Financial planners continue to operate and work with their support staff even though video communication on an everyday basis seems a little strange.

If you are an existing client and you would like to speak with your consultant, then please use their email address or telephone number. If your planner has not been in touch with you recently, they will attempt to do so very shortly. The only thing they will not be able to do is meet with you in person, until further notice.

It’s business as usual as it can be.

If you are not a client, whether an individual or a business, and need help, financial guidance or advice then please email us at or call us on 01603 789966.

We’re here to help.
