BDB Financial

What we do

“Listen” “Understand”. In a recent survey, these were the two words our clients used most often to describe what BDB does well. Once we understand what’s important to you, we can develop financial strategies that can make a profound, positive difference to your life.

We begin by listening: learning about your aspirations and values, your hopes and your fears. To make this process as insightful as possible, we also use some powerful tools, including the BDB Board Game.

Financial planning
While we’re getting to know you, our team use your data to build up a comprehensive picture of your finances: an audited balance sheet, a profit & loss account and a lifetime cashflow forecast, which is illustrated by our bucket film. We then develop your financial strategy, using scenarios and stress testing to make sure it is effective and resilient. The outcome is often life changing, as BDB clients Lorraine and Peter explain. ... Read More
Financial management
With your strategy in place, we do the tactical work that’s needed to implement it as securely and efficiently as possible. This is about driving out unnecessary costs, reducing tax and upgrading your existing financial assets where necessary. It saves a typical BDB client around £37,500 a year. ... Read More
Forward planning and progress
We insist on meeting at least once a year following implementation, more frequently in the early stages. At these forward planning meetings, we deliver consistent, transparent progress reports and make sure everything is on track. The meetings are important opportunities to discuss our tactics and make any adjustments needed as your life changes. ... Read More

It's about time

Our aim is to help you allocate your most valuable resources – time and money – in ways that are meaningful to you.
