The secret to wealth creation
Creating and maintaining the right investment strategy plays a vital role in securing your financial future, whether you are looking to invest for income, growth or a combination of the two. Life doesn’t stand still, so your financial plan shouldn’t either.
We often think of investment goals in terms of a single investment strategy, but in truth they often require several strategies, each tailored and based on your specific goals. Our expert investment team can help you create a plan for the future you want.

If you’ve built a substantial pot of money, want to invest a lump sum or need help investing something like a pension through retirement it can be a good idea to hire a wealth manager to make sure you invest your money wisely, without taking too much, or too little risk and don’t end up paying too much in fees.
If you have no experience of investing or haven’t invested a large sum of money before, you can use wealth management services for Southampton clients. Our expert team can help to make sure that your investment is diversified to minimise the risk that comes with any kind of investment.
Also, if you want to take advantage of tax-efficient investing and you want to mitigate inheritance tax (where possible), it is advisable to have a specialist on hand to help and offer expert advice.
A financial adviser helps you with the financial side of lifestyle planning, whereas a wealth manager looks after your literal wealth. A financial adviser might help you plan your finances to build your savings or pension pot, a wealth manager helps manage your investments to help you meet your financial goals.
Luckily, for our clients, 2020 Financial are both Independent Financial Advisers who can help you build your wealth, serving as Wealth Managers for Southampton clients. They are are qualified to offer long-term investment advice.
Plus we have access to some of the world's best investment brains through our strategic partnerships, so you get all the benefits of working with a large financial institution but with the tailored approach you'll only get from a boutique independent firm.
Building a nest egg is one thing, maintaining that nest egg and investing for income is something else altogether. We are uniquely placed to help clients at both ends of the spectrum.
There’s no minimum amount of money you need for wealth management, but you need to factor in the cost of hiring a wealth manager and balance whether the benefits and gains make sense for you.
Typically, our wealth management clients will have anywhere between £300,000 and £2.5million.
Much has been written about the costs of financial advice without the context of the value that a Financial Advisor or Wealth Manager brings to the table.
Research published by Royal London shows that financial advisers can leave you significantly wealthier, even when taking into account fees. Wealth managers can't just make you money, they can also save you from making costly mistakes with your investments and save you from paying unnecessary tax by maximising your tax-efficient investment options.
Many Wealth Management firms offer Discretionary Wealth management which, whilst adding a layer of investment management, can add an unnecessary layer of cost to your investment.
Our unique hybrid model gives you all of the benefits of discretionary fund management but without the usual costs associated with it. We've carefully built our wealth management offering to be largely cost neutral to our clients giving you the best of both worlds.
Our Southampton Wealth Managers can:
- Help you make informed investment decisions
- Keep you on-track for your long-term goals
- Save you money by sourcing competitively priced investments
- Make sure you don’t get stuck in poorly performing investments
- Reduce your investment risk through a properly diversified portfolio
- Advise when to adjust your portfolio, and when to sit tight
- Provide a reasoned, informed and non-emotional response to market fluctuations
In short, a wealth manager can take the stress and worry out of investing and provide support to enable you to reach your long-term goals.
