At Portal Financial Planning we believe in:


Independence in all its forms. Independence of thought, independence from product providers when recommending a product to a client, independence of the individual so that they are not manipulated or controlled by others. Also, striving to help others become financially independent, which in tomorrow’s increasingly economically driven world will be the only real guarantee of creating and retaining an independent lifestyle.

Wealth creation

creating and conserving wealth for our clients is one of our primary aims. This goes hand in hand with financial independence.


this extends not only to our clients and employees, but also in the transparent way we deal with others.


we design and operate systems that are simple in their concept and delivery. Financial planning should be a good experience, which is easy to understand by the consumer, not a confusing and jargon-filled nightmare. This means using the right method to deliver financial planning, which we believe for the vast majority of people is via face to face impartial and independent advice.


using it to its maximum advantage, utilising the latest cutting edge software and processes to develop the best solutions for clients needs.

We strongly believe that we can offer the right service for you or your company, offering a wide range of different, yet effective solutions:

An ethical way of dealing with our clients
A truly unique advisory process
Advanced servicing for all of our clients

Using the web to its full potential, all of our clients get an individual online view of their financial affairs, instant valuations on policies and a chance to communicate with their own secure message service. However we believe that websites can’t advise people on their financial futures, nor should they. When dealing with people’s finances a personal touch is necessary, giving the chance to both identify and evaluate your own personal needs.
