Business overview

The financial maze is here to guide you and in using the financial maze you will help to guide others

Any broker I may guide you to has had to pass stringent measurements set by myself for them to deal with my clients. The list below is by no way exhaustive:

• A fair fee structure dependent on specific advice levels, product, and status of the client.

• A true reflection of being Independent with no bias or incentives to recommend one provider above another.

• A high level of experience offered in any specific area.

• Persistency (percentage of brokered policies in force in any rolling 12 months).

• A robust compliance structure.

• A strong management team.

The customer cannot be charged any higher fee by being guided by The Financial Tree to any of the specific broker’s that have passed my due diligence, in fact in some cases, I have been able to negotiate lower fees for my clients.

The following areas are covered by The Financial Tree but basically, I cover all areas of Finance.

• Bridging for residential, investment, developers, auction, and VAT bridge.

• All forms of development finance.

• Commercial finance for occupier, portfolio, and investment mortgages.

• Residential mortgage and secured loans.

• All forms of insurance/assurance requirements.

• Pension and investments.

An important factor that has come to light for this way of helping the client is that, as I do not carry a pipeline of applications in underwriting that need managing, this releases more time for me to investigate guidance required for specific client’s needs that may be “outside the box”. A specific broker may struggle to find the time for more detailed investigations.

As a final point, due to my own experience, I have a goal in reducing the UK timescales getting guide dogs to the people who need them. To this end 5% of net income from The Financial Tree is donated to help train these dogs.

The financial tree is designed to help guide my customers and by my customers using The Financial Tree they in turn help to guide others.

Liz - Great financial guidence

I approached Gareth at The Financial Maze as I knew being self-employed my protection needs would be different to an employed person. I already had some protection but little understanding of what I had, if I’m honest. Gareth went through each of my plans, how they worked and what they offered. This was invaluable. It became obvious that these plans were unsuitable for my present needs as my circumstances had changed. I was then guided in the right direction towards and received excellent advice.
I cannot recommend The Financial Maze highly enough as a relaxed environment where I could discuss my needs and concerns. This has now given me peace of mind, getting to the right advice provider and a more appropriate plan.

First time buyer

I approached the Financial Maze as I had already started the process of looking to buy my first house, what an eye opener! The guidance Gareth offered, taking me through the whole concept of buying my first house took away so many stresses.

I was then guided to a broker who opened my eyes as I had already got rates that he managed to blow out of the water!

The whole process was 5 star , educating me and also relieving stress! I would 100% return.

Gareth offers something different in a complicated and often difficult to navigate Financial Services Market. Just straight forward guidance to help you make the best decision possible. His 35 years industry experience in all aspects of Financial Services was a great help and reassurance explaining things in a simple no nonsense manner.
