Montgo Consulting Ltd is the trading company of Mike Grant, an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) based in Eastbourne, East Sussex with 23 years experience in the financial services industry. I specialise in investments, portfolio construction and investment management and reviews but also provide broader advice including on pensions and life assurance.

The ethos of Montgo Consulting Ltd is not about selling products. It is to provide thorough, wide ranging professional advice and service. With comparatively few clients the approach is very much on personal involvement, quality, comprehensive advice and all important reviews. However if you prefer limited advice or simply wish to buy a financial product that is fine.

Montgo Consulting Ltd has been a fee only IFA for many years and unlike many advisers is not a recent convert from commission based remuneration, a change forced on them by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) who banned commission payments for advised investment and pension sales from the end of 2012. Please note however commission is still allowed on insurance policies and these can be very high, although clients of Montgo Consulting Ltd will receive a full rebate of commission in one of several ways (see How services are paid for).

The ethos of Montgo Consulting Ltd is low key and the complete antithesis of the hard sell image. There are no sales targets, just old fashioned personal, high quality advice. However that is very easy for me to say. To experience it you'll have to try it! And to encourage you an initial consultation or telephone discussion of up to an hour is offered without charge or obligation. Alternatively have a look at the testimonials or ask for a reference.

Mike has been my IFA for a number of years. I find him admirable - a combination of deep knowledge of UK financial services, customer understanding, intelligence and flexibility means that he provides excellent and effective advice. His strong sense of personal integrity and ethics mean that I can be sure that his advice is given solely with my interests in mind. The proof of the pudding is in the eating - my personal financial portfolio is in significantly better shape than it would have been without Mike!
