We have been with Efficient Portfolio for several years. Having passed the age of 55 with a number of pensions I did not know what would be the best way forward for using these to get the best for our retirement. After a very productive meeting taking into account our personal situation, future requirements etc they put forward a financial plan for years to come. We are extremely happy with every aspect of the plan, the professionalism and friendliness of all member of staff plus the support they offer and a feeling of having a secure plan for our future. I would definitely recommend Efficient Portfolio for your financial planning.

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!

Our Typical Clients
At Efficient Portfolio, we deal with a wide range of clients. Whether you are a business owner, young professional, pre-retiree, or even living your post-retirement life, we believe that everybody can benefit from wealth management and financial planning for clients.
Meet the Team
The team at Efficient Portfolio is both incredibly skilled and diverse. Our Financial Planners operate on a client-centric ethos, are equipped to provide clients with the bespoke financial guidance they need, and place clients’ concerns and goals at the heart of everything they do.
Our Culture and Values
At Efficient Portfolio, our goal is to create meaningful and sincere relationships with our clients. Navigating through your finances can be a complex process, which is why we’re here to help guide and support you.
Our team is constantly striving to improve their skills and knowledge so that you can benefit from the best service available. We’re future-focused and aim to stay ahead of industry trends because we want our clients to maximise their opportunities every step of the way.
We understand the importance of your finances, therefore, we operate with transparency. Honesty is the best policy and we pride ourselves on being a wealth management company that is both straightforward and open with our clients.
Charlie Reading has combined his own experience as a business owner with his research from business books, workshops and courses led by other successful entrepreneurs to create the system he calls 'entrepreneurial happiness'.
This book provides a culmination of business ideas for all leading entrepreneurs to make their business more profitable and achieve a healthy work life balance. The system to create entrepreneurial happiness is there in front of you and you cannot afford to wait. The secrets of the 21st century entrepreneur are greater than you can imagine, and just a read away.
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 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?
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.
