Welcome to Farley & Thompson
We are an independent stockbroker and investment manager authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. We are a member of the London Stock Exchange and the Wealth Management Association and we offer a range of investment services to private individuals, trusts, charities, pension funds and corporate clients.
These services include dealing and advisory accounts as well as bespoke discretionary portfolio management and an inheritance tax portfolio service. We also operate a tax efficient Stocks & Shares ISA, together with the junior version for your children or grandchildren, and we can advise beneficiaries on the ISA Additional Permitted Subscription.
We work closely with other professional parties such as solicitors and accountants advising on and managing portfolios on behalf of trustees and attorneys. We also provide a comprehensive deceased estate probate service for individuals and the legal profession.
We believe that every client is important and we look forward to being of assistance and to working with you to achieve your financial objectives.
What we Offer
Whether you wish to undertake a straightforward one-off transaction, seek our advice on a per stock basis or invest a lump sum for the future via a managed portfolio, you can be assured of a personal service from one of our knowledgeable and experienced investment team.
We understand how important your financial security is and seek to provide recommendations in light of your objectives and attitude to risk. Central to our firm’s investment philosophy is the belief in capital preservation and the importance of dividend income to longer term investment returns.
We specialise in offering advice on blue chip equities, fixed interest bonds and collective investment funds and can deal in all quoted companies and investment trusts listed on the main or alternative investment markets as well as unit trusts. We are always pleased to discuss in person any particular investment ideas you may wish to explore and we are happy to accommodate clients who choose to continue with certificated shareholdings.
Clients electing to use our comprehensive nominee service benefit from the security and simplicity of holding stocks electronically. This assists in efficient and timely settlement as well as the prompt processing of corporate actions and dividend payments. Nominee account holders also have access to our online valuation service.
We are experienced in creating diversified investment portfolios for our managed clients and we will take the time to listen carefully to your needs and objectives. Whether you are looking for growth, income or a balance between the two we will seek to manage your wealth in a measured and risk averse manner.
