Investment Advice

Having money in the bank is one thing, but putting that money to work and generating more money can be even better!

Why Invest With Independent Financial Advice?


From our wealth of combined investment experience, we know that the best investments aren’t always the ones that offer the highest returns.


Don’t be. While all investments carry risk, some are considerably riskier than others, and those risks aren’t always obvious to the untrained eye.

Liquidity issues (how easy it is to sell), regulations, prospects and market trends are all factors that effect how an investment might be suitable for you or not.

That’s what we’re here for – to find a balance between growth and risk that’s right for you and your circumstances.

Investment Market Insights

We’re a full market IFA, which means we’re often not tied to certain investment platforms or companies, nor particular investment opportunities.

When you come to MacFarlaine and Brooks over your investments, we can compare your options with the entire market if we need to, just to find the most suitable investment opportunities for you.

Advice For Life

Our motto means that we believe the most suitable financial advice comes from looking at your life and finances as a whole, rather than just one aspect.

By doing this, we balance out your investment needs with the rest of your financial obligations and plans, ensuring that we come up with solutions that work in harmony with your other arrangements and work towards your life goals.

Our Investments Promise

Not all investments are equal when it comes to risk and reward, and it often takes an experienced eye to tell what the right way to go is.
We promise to always assess the suitability of your investments suggestions and carry out the necessary due-diligence to ensure you’re getting advice we believe to be in your best interests.

The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested.
