As with advice, this is another pillar of our company. Part of our mission is to be a great employer to work with. For the community’s sake we go out of our way to recruit locally. Both of those missions directly benefit clients though, because, statistically, the nearer employees live to their workplace, the longer they stay with their employer. The longer colleagues stay with us, the better they know our clients and the better the service they deliver. That’s what we call our ‘clients-colleagues-community mission interlock’.
Great systems are another key to delivering the best service. We’ve spent a lot of money on systems so that we can see when clients call, we can see where they stand pretty instantly in terms of valuations and the like. Also, because security is so important, more now than ever with fraud as rampant as it is, we’ve put in a whole private portal for clients, see here
We tailor our service individually to each client; there is no ‘one-size-fits-all, but twelve key factors are common to every one of our investment, pension and drawdown clients through our Clear and FAIR client proposition –
