… we offer an independent ear and an opportunity to discuss your affairs in confidence
Our Advisory Managed service is for clients who wish to be actively involved in the decision-making process. You will work closely alongside one of our advisors who will provide support and guidance to help you construct an investment portfolio. In the first instance we will want to understand your financial aims and objectives as well as your attitude to risk. Once your portfolio is established, we will continue to help you monitor your investments and commit to providing you with routine updates.
Our Dealing service is for clients who prefer to make their own decisions. As members of the London Stock Exchange we have direct links with the market and electronic trading platforms and if you wish, we will confirm the execution of your trade whilst you are on the telephone and the price at which you dealt. This is primarily an equity trading facility and we will not offer investment recommendations but if requested, we may provide advice on a particular stock or fund.
Farley & Thompson acknowledge that there are still a number of clients who prefer to retain paper shareholdings but market harmonisation is leading to ever shorter settlement timescales and as a result, we are phasing out the opening of new certificated dealing accounts. For clients wishing to undertake a one-off disposal we will need the certificate and signed transfer form in the office ahead of the trade and we will dematerialise the holding into our nominee prior to sale.
With many in our industry turning away from providing advice, we believe there is an even greater need for independent stockbroking and investment management services for clients who wish to retain control of their investments.
