We are an established firm of Chartered Financial Planners. We founded Bailey Cook with the aim of creating and maintaining long-term, trusted relationships with our clients, based on our core principles of trust, integrity and expertise. We remain true to these principles today

We work closely with our clients to put in place individually tailored financial plans to help them meet their future financial objectives, and we then keep them regularly updated through ongoing monitoring and reviews.

We have long-standing relationships with many of our clients and we have helped them manage their finances throughout their lives and into retirement. Many have seen fit to introduce friends and family to us, so we can help them with their financial affairs. We are very grateful for such endorsements.

The world of finance moves quickly, and our role is to keep pace with it so you have the reassurance that your financial planning is in safe hands, giving you and your family invaluable peace of mind. Putting our clients at the very heart of everything we do enables us to run Bailey Cook the way we want to. Our nimble and client-focused team means we can be responsive to your changing needs and we will always act with your best interests at heart.

We try to bring your financial plans to life, as you will hopefully see from the Testimonials our clients have been kind enough to provide.

Our world is ever more competitive, and we know you can take your business elsewhere, so we will work tirelessly on your behalf to deliver value. In our experience, no two clients are the same and we therefore ensure that we understand your personal objectives and deliver the bespoke solutions that are right for you.

We take care of your financial planning, leaving you free to live your life

You are unique. You have your own circumstances, preferences and objectives, and our job is to understand all of those factors and put in place a bespoke financial plan to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be in the future.

We want you to feel the value of the advice and service we provide, through our research, technical expertise, portfolio reviews and our ability to explain complex financial plans in straightforward terms. In summary, we want you to sleep well at night, knowing your financial plans are in safe hands.
