Watch Paul talk about Tandem Financial, how it exists to build relationships of trust, give the best financial advice and services, add real value and help you make smart choices with your money.
These are legitimate questions, and at Tandem Financial we exist to bring clarity, peace of mind and positive momentum to your financial situation. We genuinely love to help people, and take great pleasure in seeing our clients succeed.
We are a local financial adviser near Harpenden working with business owners, thriving families, retirees and those approaching retirement. If you want help in making smarter choices with your money, then we would love to hear from you.
Finances are a sensitive area. Sharing information about this part of our lives is an intimidating thought, and we understand that.
This is why we like to break the ice at beginning, exposing some of the fears which money brings. Our process goes on to ask smart questions about your needs and goals, laying the first foundations for putting your financial strategy in order.
Ultimately, there needs to be a trusting relationship between us where you are given the facts. It can take a little while to build trust, especially in the whole area of money. This is perfectly normal. In time, however, we hope to earn that trust by listening to your needs, providing you with the expert advice you need to navigate the financial landscape ahead of you.
We work with many different kinds of people and offer a range of services, including retirement planning, investment advice, estate planning, mortgage advice and more.
