You and your clients are in reliable and safe hands when instructing us to prepare reports and forecasts. We both have a financial advice and planning background and have been Resolution Accredited Financial Advisers since 2007. 

Pensions on Divorce has been a central part of our work for many years.  We both work in the same way and enjoy finding solutions for clients.  Our aim is to provide understandable solutions that meet the needs of all parties as closely as is possible.  We are not afraid of being inventive with these solutions and look for solutions where there may not appear to be one at the start.

Ian and Paul work closely with other professionals, including both accountants and solicitors and were nominated and shortlisted for Wolverhampton Law Society Professional of the Year 2017 (Ian), 2018 (Paul) and 2019 (Paul).

We do not provide regulated financial advice through Southdown Consultants.  If regulated advice is required this can be provided through Ian's regulated company Oculus Wealth Management (Wombourne) Ltd.
