About Us

We can be forgiven for not being the best but we owe it to ourselves to be the best that we are capable of being.

Therefore, the aim at Alan Taylor and Co is to draw down upon the experience, knowledge and expertise that is available and offer a first class and unrivalled service to the client.

The advice given, and recommendations made, will always seek to complement those given by other professionals such as accountants, solicitors and bank managers.

From our own research, we learned that 98% of clients in the practice set a great deal of importance upon their Personal Financial Guidance* and 80% wished to review their financial plans at least once a year*.
