THE STORY BEGINS WITH YOU

Global WealthMAP is a boutique wealth planning practice based in London.  We provide unbiased, independent fee-based advice to clients who are looking to create, enhance or preserve their wealth.

Building  your wealth

Preserving your wealth

You are looking to make your wealth last a lifetime and, past that, to create a lasting legacy.

Enjoying  your wealth

You are looking to enjoy the wealth you have worked so hard to create.

YOU

WHY – LIFESTYLE PLANNING

The first step to making an effective plan is to understand what drives you. We want to understand what goals you would like to achieve within your given timeframe and why. Our advice is clear, comprehensive and uncomplicated to help you make an informed decision which will enable you to achieve your aims and objectives, both personal and financial.

PLANNING

HOW – FINANCIAL PLANNING

We bring an academic approach to our research and are pragmatic in its application. We start with reviewing the current structure of your financial arrangements and subsequently create a tailored plan to best suit your needs.  Our ambitions centre purely around trying to deliver the best possible service to our clients. As independent financial planners, we are able to review the whole of the market in assessing the most suitable solutions for our clients.

WHAT – FINANCIAL ADVICE

Once we are sure of the Why and the How, we can then begin to implement the What. Our advice encompasses the full range of advice on pensions, investments, protection, mortgages, tax planning and estate planning. Our priority is achieving the best outcome for the client, and as such we have no product bias. As independent advisers we can review the whole of the market before making our recommendations.

Mortgages

We are an independent mortgage broker, operating across the whole of the market, and directly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Our independence means that our advisers have the scope and expertise to source different rates and products across the whole of the mortgage market, rather than being restricted to the products of one bank or lender. Our role is to make sure that you get the mortgage product that is most suitable to your requirements.

We can advise on the following mortgages:

  • First-time buyers

  • Moving home

  • Remortgaging

  • Buy-to-let mortgages

 

We make sure that your mortgage application experience is as smooth and hassle-free as possible. A dedicated mortgage adviser and administrator will be on hand to guide you through the process from start to finish.

 

For any mortgage related queries please contact mortgages@globalwealthmap.com
