Written by Sally-Anne Rogers

Gemma Darcy, Director of Darcy Financial Planning, has been advising clients for over 20 years. She tells us why understanding her clients’ lifestyle choices is the key to delivering the best service.

One of our primary differences when it comes to financial planning? It’s all about the client. Rather than focusing on money, we invest the time to thoroughly understand their specific lifestyle needs.

Take multiple workplace pension pots, or dormant funds, as an example: the difference compound growth can make to your final pension pot over time can vary immensely. Funds chosen historically may no longer be appropriate, so having an adviser review your pensions can prove beneficial along the way.
