BARBICAN Independent Financial Advisors Ltd

Our Clients

Our client base has been generated through existing clients’ referrals and also recommendations from professional connections such as Accountants and Solicitors based on our reputation. We understand that our clients continue to seek our advice because the service we offer is considered to be first class.


We work with both private individuals, companies, trusts and charities. We aim to treat all of our clients fairly and develop a personal financial strategy.


We aim to have at least one annual review meeting with clients and make sure their investments are still suited to their needs. We believe communication is a two way thing, which is why we are always available to discuss financial issues over the telephone or via email.


We do not focus on sales but on providing professional advice and a personal service.
