Your journey

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 Bastable has been offering regular general financial advice to my husband and myself for about 12 years. He has guided our investment bonds; ISAs, savings accounts and general financial well-being, including advice on inheritance tax which generated a substantial amount of unexpected additional inheritance! We have found Mark’s advice to be clear ( we are not financial experts), well evidenced and honest. Mark is personable, approachable and always professional; we have never yet had a reason to doubt the integrity of his advice. "

"The service and personal attention my husband and I received from Mark Bastable of Templegate financial services was way beyond what we were expecting. His knowledge of his job and commitment to finding us a mortgage with the best rate helped us buy the home we were renting. My husband and I went bankrupt in 2013 and lost everything due to the recession, we never thought it would be possible to get back on the property market. Mark was confident from the off and that this was something he could achieve...and he didn't let us down. He was with us every step of the way and would respond to every email I sent quickly and efficiently. Mark came highly recommended from a family member and would recommend him to anyone trying to get a mortgage. Justine and Ken Harris Proud Houseowners"

"I am very pleased to give a testimonial for Mark Bastable of Templegate. I am a first-time investor. Mark listened to my concerns regarding my investments and took them into account when making his recommendations. He clearly explained the different products that fitted into my criteria. Mark has always responded quickly to any concerns or queries that I have experienced. I like that he does what he says he is going to do and is always on time with calls. There is never a stupid question, which is quite handy for me and I have never felt rushed by Mark, he takes his time and makes sure that I understand what he is offering. Altogether, I found it a pleasant and interesting experience and I thoroughly recommend Mark's services."

"Mark has been advising my wife and I for 6 years in solely in regard to investments. Recently we decided to move house so sought Mark's advice in regard to securing a mortgage. We had no hesitation in accepting Mark's subsequent recommendation given our positive relationship with him. The mortgage application process was overseen by Mark and completed with few problems. We were completely satisfied with the result as we have been with all the guidance and advice Mark has provided over the past 6 years. "

"When my wife & I wanted to re mortgage in order to staircase to a larger percentage of our shared ownership property, we found Mark to be an enormous help. It's no exaggeration to say they we couldn't have done it without him. From the very start he was friendly, communicative & open. Despite the problems caused by the Covid pandemic Mark was always approachable & ready to talk us through any steps we wanted to go over, either on Zoom, phone or email. As for the actual mortgage product, we couldn't be happier. Everything we were after, Mark found & found it within our means. We will certainly use his services again in the future. Thumbs up for Mark. "

"Mark Bastable has been advising my wife and I for over six years and we are extremely satisfied by the services he offers. He has advised us mainly in the area of savings for retirement – an area very important to everyone. His advice is always balanced, informative and as time has shown is extremely good. He also has a broad width of general financial advice and knowledge and is a good source of guidance and assistance with our other needs. We would wholeheartedly recommend Mark. Personally, we are looking forward to a long and beneficial relationship with him."
