Holistic Financial Planning UK

At Efficient Portfolio, we help people clarify and realise their dreams and goals by connecting them with expert Financial Planners.

We believe that clients must be placed at the heart of every financial planning strategy, and that building a deep understanding of what you want to achieve in the future and what concerns you have about the present is the only way to truly reach your financial objectives. That is why we only work in conjunction with Financial Advisers and Financial Planners who believe in these principles, and have demonstrated the highest level of qualification, ethics and have tried and tested client relationship practices.

Our Financial
Planning Services

Efficient Portfolio offers a wide range of financial planning services. Whether you need help managing your investments or planning your retirement, we can provide holistic and strategic planning to meet all of your needs.

Retirement Planning

The financial decisions you make today could greatly impact your future. Retirement is an extremely important milestone and it’s never too early, or too late, to start your retirement planning.

Investment Management

Part of building a comfortable future involves creating a flexible and sustainable investment strategy. We can connect you with experts who can build an investment and financial portfolio that meets your needs.


Your mortgage and buying your dream home can be challenging, but rewarding, and the right advice can make a complicated process feel hassle-free.

Financial Protection

It’s only natural that you seek to protect your finances. After all, it ensures you and your family will always have something to fall back on. Financial protection is an integral part of wealth management that helps bring you peace of mind.

Estate Planning

Estate planning ensures that your legacy, finances, and assets are handled the way you envisioned. Even after you’re gone, you can keep providing for your family and help make this transition as smooth as possible.

Tools and Calculators

Before speaking to us you can gain a better understanding of your future financial situation by using our free wealth management and financial planning tools. Calculate the impact of compound interest, determine how much money you could receive when you retire, or even highlight the areas of your finances that are most at risk.

Why Efficient Portfolio?

We provide a financial education platform that gives clients access to qualified, FCA regulated advisers, who are ethically aligned with our founding principles . Unlike some online directories, we only work with a select few advisers, who must undergo thorough due diligence checks and who
have a proven and established working relationship with us and our clients.

The team of Financial Advisers and professionals we introduce our clients to have incredibly diverse and skilled backgrounds, so by working together we can achieve so much more and provide guidance to a huge range of clients.

Our Happy Clients

Above all, our goal is to keep our clients happy by providing a professional, transparent, and bespoke service. Here’s what some of our satisfied customers have to say...

We have been advised by Charlie Reading since the early days of his career as Financial Advisor. He provided sound advice on our pensions and savings when we retired. His advice was carefully matched to our financial goals and our tolerance to risk. The advice has proved to be sound and the results have exceeded our expectations following a very turbulent world financial market over the last fourteen years. We have witnessed his business flourish to its current level where the Efficient Portfolio team excel in technical knowledge, innovation, and customer service.

My wife and I found Efficient by chance and from our original engagement with Tim Webb and the Team we knew we were in good hands. All of our initial concerns and requirements were dealt with in a professional manner and our plan was open for discussion and tweaked accordingly. If you are looking for financial advice then I would highly recommend you reach out to them!

I have been with EP for over 18th months and have seen my portfolio grow in line with my expectations and we were well supported during the recent pandemic. Tom and the team have demonstrated that it was a good decision to select them rather than others and I now have a much better handle on my retirement plan, my lifetime cash flow and with Charlie’s insight an improved bucket list and reading library. The YouTube videos are great but maybe a better choice of Xmas jumpers next year!!

Smart Money Book

If you are looking to start saving for your future and want to make sure that you can retire early enough to enjoy amazing experiences with your friends and family rather than listening to their stories of freedom while you are still at work, this book is for you.

Growing and protecting your estate for the benefit of your loved ones is a key aim of the majority of our clients. Working together, we help to formulate strategies that will provide your family with financial security and freedom for the rest of their lives. But are you confident that they will do the same for the generations to come? Or even worse, will they squander the money because they don’t know how to look after it?

The Life Legacy Gift

Life only has context and meaning because of death. But the Life Legacy Gift isn’t just about your demise; it it’s actually about making the most of life, both now and for generations to come.

The ultimate eventuality of death is something all of us must face, yet few of us feel equipped to talk about. There are many considerations to make, ranging from the practicalities and administration following someone’s passing, through to leaving a legacy, both in a financial and in a more emotional sense. But where should you start?

The Life Legacy Gift

The Dream Retirement

Retirement can be a hugely painful and emotional transition.

You’ve spent your entire life earning money, and now you must turn off the tap and live off only what you have accumulated. Will it be enough? Will you be able to live the life of your dreams, or are you at risk of running out of money? Can you afford to accomplish your bucket list?

On the other hand, can you really afford not to?

The Dream Retirement

Our Events

We also host an array of free and educational financial planning events and webinars so that our clients can learn how to identify financial risks, protect their wealth, prepare for their future, and leave a legacy behind for their loved ones.
