Wealth Management

Helping you to achieve your lifestyle aspirations

Personal Financial Planning from our Independent Financial Advisers


Many people accrue substantial cash savings, investments and assets during their working life; others may have inherited significant financial resources.

Whether through personal savings, business, inheritance or a combination of all, for those in a fortunate financial position, successful management of your wealth helps to ensure that your lifestyle is financially secure for your lifetime, whilst maximising the amount of wealth you can pass on to the next generation. Essentially it’s about helping you plan, build, spend and protect your wealth.

Old Mill is one of the leading financial planning firms in the South West and believe that a well-managed, individually tailored financial plan sits at the heart of helping you to effectively manage your wealth and achieve your financial objectives.

As a wealth management client your dedicated financial planner will work with you on an ongoing basis to provide bespoke advice and guidance as part of our detailed financial planning process.

Whatever your financial and lifestyle aims and aspirations, we look forward to helping you achieve them.
