Welcome to Edward T James & Company
We Are Experienced
Established in April 2008 with over 40 years in financial services, we are fully qualified to advise in all areas of personal financial planning. We also have a special interest in Trustee Investment, managing a good number of trust funds where detailed specialist knowledge is required.
We Are Independent
We are not owned by any other company so decisions on the quality of our service are ours alone. We believe the absence of vested interests gives us a significant edge in providing a very special personal service to our clients.
We Are Consistent
Our philosophy of straight talking and adding value is very important to us. And thanks to a robust tried and tested Service Standard, we believe our clients are in safe hands on an ongoing basis.
We Are Easy To Deal With
We strongly believe in being friendly and approachable at all times. We are never too busy to see or speak to our clients. Please see our testimonials.
Who Are We?
We are a company of professional Independent Financial Advisers based in West Cornwall
and we provide a uniquely personal service to our clients. Our business is focused on developing close and meaningful long term relationships with our clients where professional advice goes hand in hand with personal service.
What Do We Do?
We help our clients plan for and put into practice the outcomes that are important to their lives. This invariably involves money, its growth and management. We aim to provide reliable guidance through the maze of ever changing financial regulations to achieve results in the real world.
How Do We Do It?
We have built our business on what would now be called “old fashioned” or “traditional” values; – openness, fair dealing and delivering what we promise. We guarantee impartiality in what we recommend and that our clients’ interests are valued above all other considerations.
