Services for Private Clients

All of our services are based around providing advice and managing your money. We'll tailor our service to suit your needs: you can deal with us entirely online, or we can visit you at home. It's your choice. We only make a profit from long term client relationships, so you won't experience any hard sell.

EQ is an award winning, boutique wealth manager with a very wide range of services, catering for clients with a few hundred pounds as well as those with tens of millions. We are committed to excellence, not in trying to be the biggest.

Your Money, Your Way

Offering advice is a core part of our proposition – in our experience individuals feel more comfortable making decisions with the support of a professional, so we try to make that advice affordable. We won’t try and sell you a service that’s not necessary. We want you to be a client forever, so there’s no point in asking you to pay for anything that is not needed. We will manage your portfolio – we believe that is the service that most people prefer. If you really enjoy managing your own savings then EQ is unlikely to be the right partner.

The services described below provide an indication of how we can work with you but do not provide a full picture of the flexibility. Give us a call to discuss what we can offer you.
