We help individuals and businesses do more with their money.
This might include planning for retirement, investing money, or putting protection in place for loved ones. Find out more about how this can apply at various stages of life below.
Who we are
We are a firm of Independent Financial Planners primarily based in Liverpool and London.
We understand the considerable amount of time and emotional energy spent worrying about money and whether you truly have enough to achieve your most important goals. Our innovative financial planning processes and evidence-based investment strategy have helped hundreds of clients around the country stop worrying about money so they can fully experience life. We do this by:
- Combining financial analysis with emotionally intelligent insights about where you are and where you want to be.
- Creating a comprehensive financial roadmap for your future.
- Providing actionable advice that gives you meaning and purpose around your money.
We have found the most successful strategies are ones that people can understand and follow for decades, not just a few years. This requires tuning out much of the news and emotion surrounding finance and following a disciplined strategy based on what works. This may be simple, but it’s not always easy. That’s where having a trusted advisor at your side can help.
How can we help?
If you are seeking the help of a financial professional, you might have some questions. Below are some examples of the questions you might have; we will help to resolve your concerns and clarify what the future might hold during a face-to-face meeting.
Can we afford to live the life we want to live when we retire?
Everyone’s desired retirement lifestyle is unique. It is important to first identify what yours looks like. We will help you to define yours, then work with you to align your money with your aspirations.
When will we be able to choose to stop working?
We all want to be able to retire on our own terms. We will help you to understand and optimise your wealth, so that you can retire with confidence when the time is right.
How do I sort out my pensions?
It can be difficult to know what sort of retirement income your pensions will provide. We will analyse your pensions and overall wealth, then recommend any changes needed to achieve the retirement you want.
Am I invested suitably?
It is essential that you take the appropriate amount of risk with your investments. If you do not, you risk disappointment. We will ensure your money is invested in line with your goals and preferences.
How would one of us being unable to work affect our finances?
If illness or redundancy means you or your partner can no longer work, it is essential you have a plan in place. We will help you to safeguard your family and wealth against long periods of time without income.
What happens to my partner if I die (or to me if they die)?
It can be difficult to think about life without your partner. Nevertheless, we will help you to prepare well and ensure that you are financially secure no matter the circumstances.
Can we manage financially if one or both of us needs long-term care?
In life, it can help to expect the unexpected. If you or your partner requires long-term care because of an illness or disability, we will ensure you have the security of a robust financial plan.
Can we afford to help our family financially?
Many of us would like to support family; both in our lifetimes and after we have gone. We will help you to strike the perfect balance between an enjoyable retirement and a meaningful legacy for your loved ones.
What our clients say
We’re incredibly proud of the work we do. Here are the real words of real clients.
Matt has been my financial adviser for many years. During this time, he has always made himself available to advise on any matters that I have been concerned about. He has become a valued friend, with a wealth of financial knowledge.
Twenty years ago, my accountant recommended Matt Webb as a first-class financial adviser and that has proved to be the case. He is always courteous and ready to explain any questions I may have.
Matt has been our financial adviser for a number of years now and we look forward to working with him for many years to come. His expertise, advice, guidance and reliability has been at the heart of the trusting relationship from which we benefit.
I suffered a stroke at 58 and had to stop working to focus upon my recovery. PWS’s input was invaluable. They convinced me and my wife that we had amassed sufficient wealth to enable early retirement. I am now 61 and have made a full recovery and enjoy my retirement in the knowledge that I have a “financial partner” in PWS to allay my natural anxiety given the uncertainty we all have to navigate.
Matt has a very good understanding of his clients’ needs and nothing is ever too much trouble. Matt is very knowledgeable and explains everything clearly and in sufficient detail to enable an informed decision to be made. He deals with everything quickly and efficiently and responds promptly to every query. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone seeking any form of financial advice.
I have used the services of PWS for over ten years now. I have found their services and advice to be clear, efficient and prompt at all times. It has been refreshing to work with a company that is proactive and gives peace of mind that you really are receiving considered advice that specifically suits individual needs. I have had no hesitation in recommending PWS to personal friends as well as colleagues. Thanks Mo and your exceptional team - see you soon!
I was introduced to Steve in 2008. I genuinely trust and appreciate the professional advice given to me and my family. The ongoing investment and pension advice has been invaluable through the good and the bad times and I have had no hesitation in recommending Steve to family and friends.
PWS Financial Consulting Ltd have been our financial advisers since 2005. They have always offered sound financial advice based on our investment objectives as well as our personal needs. They keep in regular contact and provide us with ongoing financial advice as our needs and markets change. They take the time needed to fully explain our options and to guide us in an appropriate direction. We feel as though they truly care about us, our finances and our future.
(Mohit) Thank you so much for helping me by sorting out my retirement, pensions and general finances. You managed to improve my financial gains through astute financial management, and greatly help reduce my losses during the crash a number of years ago. It helps so much when you speak in a down-to-earth manner, which assists my decision-making going forward.
Having been a client of PWS for over 20 years, I cannot recommend them too highly. The levels of professionalism and product knowledge are excellent. They are fully interested in client and family circumstances and provide continuity of personnel which is crucial for client comfort. Their fees are realistic, and they make ease of consultation a priority. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
I have been fortunate enough to have Matt as my financial adviser for over 10 years and during this time he has seen me and my husband through some major life events. These have included my own unexpected ill-health retirement and also for my husband, his cancer diagnosis, financial planning around this, his retirement and subsequent death. Throughout everything Matt has always been very personable, thorough, informed, efficient, responsive and has always dealt with us with great care and understanding, giving tailored advice to our own specific situation. Matt’s advice and support have made very difficult moments in our lives more manageable and have given me and my family a great base for a financially safe and comfortable future. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Matt as a financial advisor and I am very grateful that he has looked after us so well for so long.
