Financial Planning and Advice

Professional financial planning and advice can help you create the wealthy, secure and happy future that you and your family deserve after a lifetime of hard work. At True Bearing, we provide top-quality personal financial planning advice to help bring your dreams to life. As a Chartered financial planning firm, we rank in the top 15% of advisory firms in the country and have been trusted by our clients to invest over £569 million on their behalf.

We understand how important it is to you to be able to protect and grow your wealth, get financial support when you need it, and ensure your legacy passes on to your loved ones after you are gone. Our Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) are here to help you make this happen, by providing high-quality financial planning assistance.

We understand that money is more than just currency - it represents freedom, stability, protection and safety for you and your family. You deserve to make the most of your money, and True Bearing will work hard to make this a reality.

To get started, you can book a no-obligation introductory meeting with us at our expense, where we’ll get to know each other and find out exactly what kind of financial planning assistance you need. If you go ahead, we will then create a long-term financial plan that is tailored to you and based on your personal life goals. Additionally, we will use the most up-to-date cashflow modelling software to monitor your progress and keep you on track.

Role of a financial planner

A good financial planner will play a variety of important roles for you, our client.


Most people know what they want out of life, but don’t necessarily know how to get there. Your financial planner will provide an independent plan, showing you the possible pathways to reach your goals.


A good financial planner will teach you what drives long-term returns and you will learn how to connect this to your life.


It’s easy to make financial resolutions but not so easy to keep them. A good financial planner will ensure goal accountability, keeping you on your desired path and talking you off the ledge in anxious times.


Our lives are busy and financial matters can be a time drain. By passing over your money matters to a good adviser you are then free to focus on what really matters to you.


You might find you are overloaded with information about your finances. A good adviser becomes a trusted source and an information filter, making sure you know what’s relevant.


Few big choices in life are simple and a good financial planner can help you cut through the noise so you can focus on what is important.


The best financial planner is mindful of your legacy - the welfare of your children and grandchildren and how you can keep your wealth working beyond your lifetime.

How True Bearing Can Help You

At True Bearing, our ethos is different to other Independent Financial Advisory firms. Rather than providing personal financial advice for the short-term, we prefer to think further ahead and take our clients on a journey that maximises and protects the value of their wealth for many years - even decades - to come.

Here’s how we work:

  1. We will invite you to a free no-obligation initial meeting at our expense, to find out about your financial goals and what is most important to you
  2. We will gather all the information we will need, including data on your current financial arrangements, and hear from you about your hopes, ambitions, fears and attitude to risk
  3. We will analyse your data to identify how we can bridge the gap between your current position and your intended destination
  4. We will develop a tailored financial plan for you to suit your individual circumstances and achieve your stated objectives, proceeding only with your approval
  5. We will work with you to put this plan into action, according to your preferred timescale
  6. We will monitor the progress of these financial plans over time, supporting you to stay on track for the long term and proactively making changes and improvements when needed

True Bearing is one of the most trusted financial planners in the UK. As a Chartered firm, we are ranked by the CII among the top 15% of Independent Financial Advisory firms by qualification in the country, and have been awarded a prestigious Gold Standard Investors in People award.

What’s more, as a truly independent firm, we can access the whole of the market and find you the best solutions for you and your money.

With more than 7,000 clients and a retention rate of over 99%, there is no better partner on your financial planning journey than True Bearing.
