As a UK expat living in the USA (who has decided to stay in the USA), I had been searching for hybrid UK/USA financial planning expertise for some time. The Plan First team are excellent! Solid knowledge of the issues that an expat with investments in the UK and USA will need to consider, a tremendous network of contacts to help in the many areas you need to navigate but most of all it’s delivered in a professional, tailored and personal manner.

I’ve been a client of Plan First Wealth for the past 3 years. I’ve been very happy with the level of service and professionalism. The team excels with the levels of communication other firms do not come close to offering. The tools and data coupled with the levels of advise not only for my retirement but the greater financial needs for my family's future is second to none.
