The neon story
We’re the founders of neon. We’ve worked together a long time. And, so far as money and life is concerned, we both agree on a few things.
Enjoying life is more important than money. But we need money to give us the freedom to fully enjoy life.
Money can seem complicated. We are expected to know what to do with our money without ever being taught. Clear information is hard to come by. Things keep changing.
We know most people are cautious about trusting financial services companies, and we are too. We built neon to paint a fresh image of advice.
We love what we do. We get a buzz from helping people make important decisions which can change their lives. We treat everyone with kindness and respect. As a result, we have a great work mindset.
Flexibility is the new normal for us. We don’t want to work strict 9-5 hours or be tied into contracts. We work smart and create a good balance between work and personal life.
We set up neon in 2018 because we know financial planning makes a massive difference to people’s lives. In particular, we wanted to connect with people just like us, in the Millennial / Generation Y age bracket. Why? Because the majority of financial planning advice in the UK is aimed at people in their 50’s or 60’s, by financial experts of the same age. It’s usually provided in a traditional face-to-face way and the way that they charge means you need to be wealthy already in order to afford it.
We knew there was a room for a different approach. So we made one: neon.
Who we are
We’re financial planners, passionate about helping people make the best financial decisions. Because good decisions usually means more choices, more fun and less worry.
We’re highly qualified and experienced in what we do. There’s not much we don’t know or haven’t seen before. Honestly!
neon is part of a financial planning family. We also have an award-winning, Chartered Financial Planning business called Balance: Wealth Planning which provides more complex holistic advice, mainly to people over 50 who are looking at big life changes, like retirement or selling a business.
We have a strong support team working alongside us, so everything runs smoothly.
