"Our Financial Planning Is As Unique As You Are"

“I’m Charlie Reading, Managing Director of Efficient Portfolio, a Chartered Financial Planner, speaker, and an author who has a passion for amazing financial planning. I’ve been in the financial services industry since 1999 and having learnt a great deal from working in two of the UK’s biggest firms, I wanted to move away from that impersonal environment, so that I could focus on my client’s unique needs and aspirations and give them the one-to-one care they deserve.

Today, I am a Chartered Financial Planner and my qualifications place me in the top 10% of all individual Financial Advisers in the UK. My firm specialises in investment and retirement planning, and has been very successful, with offices in both Rutland and London.

Our success as a team makes me incredibly proud, but nothing compares to the feeling when Efficient Portfolio’s clients tell me that we’ve helped them “find their purpose,” or that working with us has been “life-changing” and “empowering.”

With compliments like that, it’s probably obvious that the team at Efficient Portfolio is not like most financial planning firms: We’re chartered, completely independent, and totally focused on your personal goals and ambitions.

We want to work with you to BUILD, MANAGE, and PROTECT your WEALTH – by guiding you through our Efficient Wealth Management Process, and creating a bespoke Efficient Financial Plan, which we’re so confident about, we offer you a 100% money-back guarantee if you don’t get the value from it that you’d expected.

So to see first-hand how we can help you, book your FREE Exploration Meeting now.”

Mr. and Mrs. Mitton
My wife and I are delighted with the advice and support we have received from Efficient Portfolio. For the first time, in our experience, we have enjoyed independent financial advice which is exactly that; advice that put us, the clients, at the centre of their planning procedures.
An example of the care and attention Efficient Portfolio took with our personal situation resulted in a substantial cash gain from a high street bank. An investment I had made years ago had gone badly wrong. Efficient Portfolio looked closely at all of the details and suggest that, in relation to our risk profile, we had been mis-sold and that in this situation it was worth considering a letter of complaint. Efficient Portfolio provided excellent support in composing an objective and critical complaint. The result; the banks investigation found in our favour- our losses made good.

I am self-employed and do not have the time to look into the best opportunities for my pension and investments.
Charlie Reading is both dynamic and pro-active.
He has never let me down and everything is done on time. I have no worries now that Efficient Portfolio is taking care of my finances.
Helen & Chris Wada
Charlie has been providing us with professional financial advice for over ten years. He has made complex and often confusing options easy to understand and has supported us to make the right decisions for us and our family as our circumstances change over time. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Charlie to others and have already done so with many favourable comments.
