OUR CLIENTS ARE OUR PASSION
Recently we caught up with clients, Jim and Roger to find out more about their experiences from why they approached AAB Wealth and what they valued most, to how their situations have changed since seeking financial advice.
Hear directly from Jim and Roger by watching the videos below.
We also welcome feedback in our regular review meetings and on sites like VouchedFor and Unbiased. We ask our clients to participate in a dedicated survey every 18 months. The responses from our survey enable us to not only measure our own performance year-on-year, but also compare our results against other firms across the UK. We value the responses we receive from our clients and will always look for ways to improve.
Our approach to Financial Planning
Step one – Financial Discovery
We seek to discover what is important to you about money, who are the people most important to you, what your lifestyle will cost you, and any specific ‘bucket list’ goals.
This will help create a clear picture of your current financial position. The information we obtain from the ‘financial discovery’ process will then inform the discussion as to most appropriate investment strategy and solutions going forward.
Step two – Advice and recommendations
Having gained an understanding of your goals and objectives during Stage 1 of the process, we will analyse your current arrangements in detail, and report back to you in person on our findings. Our meeting will cover our recommendations on an appropriate investment plan and our advice on tax-efficient succession planning. It will focus on your personal lifetime cash flow analysis and objectives.
Clarity for you on our investment strategy proposals and their implications. This will allow you to make informed decisions on your investments, and the selection of suitable tax vehicles in the most efficient order.
Step three – implementation
This meeting will enable us to discuss any final queries or concerns and to complete the paperwork. We’ll liaise directly with your legal advisers and current investment providers to instruct any legal drafting, fund transfers and other paperwork as required. Once prepared we will review and discuss with you.
Ensuring a smooth transition from decision making to execution of plans, providing you with support at all stages.
At AAB Wealth, we believe there is a notable difference between speculating and investing. We adopt a rigorous, systematic, evidence-based approach to investing.
Moving to a more sustainable approach to investing is a journey to be taken in small, careful steps. We use a data-driven approach to evaluate companies on sustainability issues, the impact of which can be measured and reported. We call this approach ‘systematic ESG’ investing.
Support lasting a lifetime
As a minimum, we’ll meet you on an annual basis, to review your personal and financial situation, and re-visit your plan against your goals and objectives. We call this your Progress Meeting. If you ever need assistance in between meetings, our team are reachable by phone or email at any time.
Corporate Social Responsibility
At AAB Wealth we recognise that providing our clients with the best service possible starts with looking after our people and operating with the wider community in mind.
Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts are aligned with the wider AAB Group and, as a Group, we understand the importance of CSR and know businesses can have a positive social impact in many different ways.
Giving something back to our communities, working to protect our planet, and creating a happy and safe environment for our people are fundamental to the way we do business.
