Financial Adviser Andover
We are a Financial Advice firm which has been providing individuals and corporate clients with expert independent financial advice for some time. Supported by an expert team, we serve a loyal and broad client base across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
The first step is to find out how your journey might look!
We’ll discuss your financial objectives and goals, uncovering your priorities and timelines for achieving them. Where we are considering your investment needs, we’ll discuss your attitude and experience of investing, as well as the level of risk you can afford to take.
Armed with the information we have from the ‘discover’ stage, we will create a plan which aims to achieve your financial goals.
We’ll investigate which products will be most suitable for your needs. At this point, we will agree on the initial and ongoing fees required to deliver your plan.
We recommend and implement your strategy after explaining it to you.
We will assist in the completion of any relevant paperwork, ensuring the documentation is processed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We build long-lasting trusted business relationships with all of our clients.
Whilst optional, we recommend that you continue to work with us to review your investment and pension planning on a regular basis, to ensure that they match your changing goals and objectives.
Mark continues to offer astute and measured financial advice helping us save for our future. He clearly explains the products that best suit our current circumstances and is always available to answer questions that arise.
Having contacted a number of Independent Financial Advisors, including my parents long standing personal advisor in their home town, we decided to investigate other options for a more effective outcome. Because Mark is both knowledgeable, reasonably priced and highly qualified to advise on annuities, we knew that he would be fair and able to guide us through the annuity matrix. Thanks to Mark, the annuities are now both well established. Furthermore, Mark exceeded our expectations at all levels and this has reduced the level of stress and worry. His communication skills are highly developed and effectively deployed. An excellent and very efficient service Thank you
My wife and I have been using Templegate since Mark started the business some 20 years ago. In that time we’ve taken advice with regard to mortgages, insurance, investments and pensions. Most recently we’ve used Templegate’s services to advise on and activate my pension as well as for our ISA investments. We regularly meet both face-to-face and virtually to keep track of our ongoing financial requirements based on current circumstances. We have always felt comfortable with using the services provided by Templegate and can keep up to date with our portfolio via the excellent 2Plan portal.
Mark has advised my wife and I through the process of buying our first house and setting up a private pension and ISA. Mark helpfully talked through the pros and cons of every decision we made, and we felt confident that he was giving us the impartial advice we needed. We were unaware of the complexities involved in everything, and Mark helped us navigate it with confidence.
Mark very quickly ascertained what was required for us and our financial status. He listens to you and is easy to talk to. His expertise gives you confidence you are in good hands. We required Equity Release. Mark soon found and organised a product that fitted the bill. He helped us at every step, and left nothing to chance. Excellent service. We will be using his services again next year for other financial matters.
My husband and I have used Mark Bastable at Templegate Financial Planning for over 16 years, beginning when we started a family. We have benefitted from advice and assistance in remortgaging, life insurance, critical illness cover, and setting up trusts. Mark's advice is always balanced and helpful, and we will continue to use him.
Mark has advised and provided financial support to me and my wife for many years. He has advised us about pensions, life cover, critical illness cover, stocks and shares, savings advise and income protection. Our latest and very important financial advice has been on my pension drawdown which Mark has handled with the upmost professionalism and now I find that I am in a comfortable position. He has talked us through the pros and cons of any decision that we have made and always thoroughly researches the best outcomes for us. We have found him to be very knowledgeable, highly qualified, and reasonably priced for his services that he has offered us and would not hesitate to recommend him to our family and friends. Undoubtedly, we would not have the safe financial future that we now have without his significant financial advice.
Mark has been our trusted adviser for many years and we have no hesitation in recommending him. Following his advice, we have moved our ISA portfolio to a different provider to get a better deal and bought into AIM shares to reduce our IHT liability.
My wife and I met Mark through a recommendation which came highly and didn’t disappoint. He went through our investments and finances in detail and helped us to understand so much more of what we had, our potential liabilities (present and future) and offered rounded and balanced advice. He highlighted and explained issues we would never have previously been aware of, whilst offering various solutions throughout. We both sort of shut down when talking financial planning, but Mark managed to keep it clear, fresh and understandable. He was also adept at recognising when our brains had reached their limits. His knowledge is extensive and thorough, as he helped us with ISAs, property, IHT and more. He also has a range of professional contacts who can advise more on subjects not covered by his expertise. Mark is a very professional, helpful, and likeable guy who has proved to us his integrity and desire to help is his overriding raison d’être.
Mark has assisted with our pension investments for a number of years now and we're always reassured that we're in safe hands! In the ever-changing world of pensions, regulations, market fluctuations etc., we value his advice and expertise in ensuring our money remains safe whilst making some growth based on our attitude to risk and future goals. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mark to friends and family.
Mark provided advice during a recent redundancy. He helped me to estimate my current and future financial needs, then presented solutions that provided me with income and security. His clear and pragmatic advice helped me through a challenging situation.
