“I first met Keri when my late husband sold his company shares and we turned to Broadway Financial Planning for investment advice. Keri quickly impressed us with her vast knowledge and understanding of the financial marketplace and global economies. She is meticulous in attention to detail and takes great care to fully understand what is needed in any given situation. This gave us great confidence in her proposals and recommendations, which have always delivered exactly what was required. Keri has the ability to combine professionalism with kindness and it was these qualities that came to the fore when my husband suddenly passed away and we were catapulted
into a situation with the Trustees of his estate which nobody could have foreseen. Her calm, matter-of-fact, problem-solving approach to difficult circumstances was, and remains, incredibly reassuring. Keri became my rock at that time and it was to her I turned for guidance in both financial and family matters. She is a much trusted and respected friend and adviser to all the family and I have complete confidence that, as one of my Trustees also, she will support and guide my sons through their various and changing financial needs in life with great expertise and friendship.” Mrs L O Shropshire
A small, but perfectly formed team Come to Broadway Financial Planning and you’ll get to know each and every one of our dedicated and professional team. We all work closely together to provide an exemplary and caring service – one that you’ll come to trust and respect.

How we work Everything we do is based around building a strong and lasting partnership. It’s about taking the time to really get to know you, so we can guide you on your journey – giving you all the help and advice you need along the way. If you already have professionals who advise you, we’re more than happy to work with them, ensuring everything runs in total harmony.
Our well-established six-step process is built around planning for your peace of mind and ensures we find the right solution for you.
The first thing we’ll do is listen. We’ll meet with you to get our relationship started and understand where you are in life, where you want to be – and what risks you’re prepared to take to get there. This initial meeting will be at our expense, so will cost you absolutely nothing.
Once engaged by you, we’ll start gathering all the information we need to help you plan for the future. That will probably include details of your income, expenditure, investments, pensions and savings, as well as a clear picture of what you want to achieve.
Once we have all the details, we’ll start looking more closely at everything you’ve told us, analysing all the information to see what your options are – and what can be achieved.
The next step is for us to develop your own, unique financial plan. It will be built around what you’ve told us is important to you and will show you all the possible scenarios you might be faced with.
When your financial plan is agreed, the next step is for us to start implementing it. That might mean accessing some of your pension, making investments, or looking at more tax efficient ways for you to save for your future.
But our job doesn’t stop there. We’ll be constantly monitoring your plan to ensure it lives up to expectations and we’ll meet with you regularly to keep you updated – and find out about any changes happening in your life.
With you throughout life At every stage in your journey, it’s likely you’ll have a different set of challenges to face, and changing priorities along the way. We see it as our job to make sure whatever you’re dealing with, we have a service available to help you through – and ensure you come out smiling on the other side. Whilst you may find that some stages of your life require our support more than others, we find our constant guidance is what matters most.
Our typical service includes: Regular Planning Meeting with your Financial Planner An update of your Lifetime Cashflow Forecast Remodelling any changed circumstances or different goals A discussion to confirm your current situation and what is important to you A review of your existing objectives and discussion of any new ones that arise Confirmation of your ability to purchase something (e.g. new car, kitchen etc.) An overview of your estate value and Inheritance Tax position Guidance on decision-making re: Wills/Powers of Attorney/Trusts Investment Planning/Management A full assessment of your attitude to risk Ongoing monitoring of your investments/pensions with particular reference to suitability and performance.

Donâ€™t hesitate to get in contact with us for a more detailed break-down.
Lifetime Cashflow Planning Of all the services we provide, this is the one that really brings everything together. Before you can make important decisions about your future, itâ€™s crucial that you have a clear picture of all the options available to you. Thatâ€™s where Lifetime Cashflow Planning can be so useful.
Armed with all your information, we put together long-term cashflow projections that show you what the future will look like, if you carry on living as you are at the moment. Then, by creating a series of cashflow diagrams, we can demonstrate how some simple changes could improve your situation, as well as what the picture would look like if anything catastrophic were to happen, like death or serious illness. We can also show you the possible effects of retiring early or downsizing your property. The Lifetime Cashflow is a crucial part of what we do, because it gives you control over your future, with peace of mind that your goals are achievable.
