Welcome to Hythe Ethical
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Choosing a financial adviser is an important decision and the services provided can vary considerably. To help you decide if we are right for you these are some facts you need to know:
We are not owned or influenced by any financial institution. We work for you as your agent in the marketplace.
Many advisers have restricted the range of advice they offer because it is challenging to stay qualified and equipped to advise in all the areas a good independent financial adviser should cover. This profit centred attitude is not for us and we invest the time and resources required to ensure we can meet your needs in full.
Whole of Market
We research the full range of products and providers that may be suitable for your needs before making a personal recommendation designed to meet your specific requirements.
Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Services Authority
We are a fully authorised business ensuring you of high standards and access to the UK compensation system should we be unable to meet our obligations to you.
Highly Qualified and Experienced Advisers
All investment advisers are required to meet a minimum qualification standard before being able to advise, but our advisers are qualified well above the minimum and have decades of experience. Please see About our people for more details
Initial Consultation - No Charge
Because your circumstances are particular to you it is difficult for us to say what we can do to help without knowing more about you. To this end we offer an initial consultation, either a meeting or a telephone consultation depending on your preference. Once we know the scope of the work we are able to give you an estimate of costs and payment methods. Please see "Our Services and Charges" document for an idea of typical charges.
Services Tailored to Your Needs
Generally we prefer working with clients on a long term basis and most of our clients require a level of proactive ongoing service from us to ensure opportunities are not missed and their finances are well maintained. Our service is designed to be attractive to investors who live in Kent/South East London and require a face to face and long term relationship with their financial adviser. It is possible for us to act as your agent in a single transaction if your needs are simple and this is your preference. Please see "Our Services and Charges" document for an idea of typical charges.
Local and Approachable
Hythe Ethical was formed in 1996, originally based in Hythe we moved to our current offices in Westgate in 2003. We also have access to offices in Whitstable, Broadstairs and Ashford and we consider ourselves a Kent based firm with most of our clients being based in Kent or South East London.
We are a family owned and run business. The people who own the business also work here and we know that happy clients make for a nice working environment as a well as adding value to the business. If you are pleased with us then we are proud of ourselves. This is very different to larger organisations where faceless shareholders demand ever increasing profits regardless of how it effects staff and clients.
