A message from our founder - Andy Hart - Chief Maven
Welcome to Maven Adviser - founded with the aim of looking after families and their finances - for life. I believe that the foundation blocks of my most successful relationships are mutual respect and trust. I promise you that throughout our working relationship, you won't find another adviser who will care more about the long term plans of your family. I am as deeply committed to achieving your plans as you are.
I will ensure your life savings are invested with the same level of importance that I invest my own family's life savings, treating the capital as a central asset requiring careful attention. I operate to the highest ethical standards and with unvarnished honesty, which can at times raise uncomfortable truths. This is because I want the best for you and your family. I will never tell you I can do something I can't - and I will never tell you I'll do something and not do it.
Throughout our long relationship you are likely to encounter 'smarter' advisers than me, and no doubt you will also encounter 'cheaper' advisers. However you'll be hard pushed to find an adviser who is both 'smarter' and 'cheaper' than I am, and you'll never find one who cares more or is more trustworthy.
Working from the central tenet of trust, there's nothing within reason that we can't achieve together. My ultimate aim is that you live without worrying about money. I will insist that we create a financial plan and that we follow it - beyond that you are encouraged to dream and achieve your goals.
The investment markets are inevitably volatile and we wouldn't be human if it didn't make us feel uncomfortable. What I won't allow is acting on this feeling when intellectually, the decision would be wrong. I'm paid by you to act as wise counsel, particularly through market extremes. I need to know that my guidance is taken on board and I certainly couldn't continue our relationship without this implied trust. It wouldn't be fair on either of us.
It's an honour and great responsibility to be the steward of your family's financial future and I won't let you down.
