Why Sylvan?

While being Chartered, independent and recognised as a VouchedFor Top Rated Firm are compelling reasons to choose us, our uniqueness extends beyond these accolades.

Why choose us to answer life’s big questions?


A focus on planning

Financial planning is what we do best; there’s no better feeling than seeing a plan come to fruition. We enjoy getting to know our clients and understanding what’s important to them.


We are independent

Our independence allows us to thoroughly research the market, offering tailored advice on various investment products to better meet your objectives and requirements.


Our competitive fees

We do things differently. Rather than charge a percentage initial fee, we charge an upfront fee to cover the cost of the report, strategy meeting, discovery meeting, and implementing advice.

Our fees explained

Director-led advice

Uniquely, all three of our directors are also Chartered financial planners, and between them, they hold specialist qualifications in pensions, trusts, estate planning, and investments.

The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate trusts and estate planning.


Here for the long term

We aren't just passing through. We’re here to stand by you and your family, today, tomorrow, and for many years to come.

We are Cheadle’s only
