of different firms to choose from. Further refining should be done by selecting only Chartered Financial Planners but beyond this, in the absence of a personal recommendation, you are left to use your best judgement in selecting a firm who will provide the service and support you require. Lowes Financial Management has been providing Independent Financial Advice for over fifty years, during which time we have received countless endorsements, dozens of awards and achieved exceptional client satisfaction. We believe that this evidences that those who used their judgement in selecting Lowes made the right choice. By becoming a client of Lowes you will be in good company. We aim to exceed your expectations.

We can attempt to choose the right solutions ourselves or seek advice. Given the complexities and pitfalls of the financial services marketplace and the myriad of possible options, most people seek advice in one form or another to help them make what they hope will be the right financial decision. Choosing the right Financial Adviser from the tens of thousands registered in the United Kingdom is not easy. However, it is fairly simple tonarrowyour search immediately. Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) are those who can give advice covering the whole of the financial marketplace, acting as your agent, rather than representing a particular provider, or restricting their advice to a limited range of options. Yet, having narrowed your search to IFAs, that still leaves you with thousands

We are regularly recognised for excellence in many professional awards and in particular, have been judged by respected Money Marketing magazine to be amongst the best investment advisers in the UK for 11 of the last 12 years, winning the award 3 times in recent years.

We are recognised as one of the UK’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisers, and in 2007, Lowes became one of the first firms in the country to be accredited as Chartered Financial Planners, which is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ of excellence and integrity. Most recently and in addition to our Chartered Status, Lowes has become an “Associate” firm which demonstrates the adoption of professional standards set by the Personal Finance Society enabling us to stand tall behind a culture that places

clients and staff at its heart. As a firm we are proud to continue our efforts to demonstrate our professional standards and consistently work to ensure that the core principles of the PFS are intrinsic to our working practices.

Our Services The cornerstone of any good company is the service it offers to its clients. Lowes’ culture revolves around the ethic that we always strive to meet and, where possible, exceed our client’s expectations.

Our objective is to build long term relationships with every client by providing sound financial advice tailored to meet each client’s individual needs. By providing a truly personal service from professionals who genuinely care, we aim to provide peace of mind to our clients. In addition to having your own dedicated contact, regular communication is a vital part of the service we provide, strengthening the basis of trust we aim to forge between ourselves and every client. Each quarter our clients receive a copy of our magazine, designed to keep them informed of topical and relevant financial issues. When it is appropriate to do so, we alsowrite to clients regarding market developments to provide a sense of perspective offering clarification and reassurance based on our many years of experience.

Portfolio valuations can be accessed at any time via our website and twice a year we post a copy to clients accompanied by our Investment Department’s market commentary. In conjunction with correspondence sent directly from the product providers, these communications help to keep clients well informed of movements in the value of their portfolio and the wider investment landscape. Furthermore, every client is contacted at least once a year and offered a financial review to ensure that their investment portfolios and any other solutions put in place, continue to match their needs.

“ I have great confidence in the integrity and competence of your company. I have been very fortunate to have discovered Lowes Financial Management. I only wish I had done so when I took voluntary redundancy in 1994. ” Mr R Cowell Client since 2000
