About Stiddard

At Stiddard McLaughlin, we pride ourselves on delivering truly independent financial advice based on 3 key principles.

  1. Ensure all advice given to our clients is based upon their individual circumstances and what best fits with their requirements.
  2. Charge a fair fee, based on the actual work involved.
  3. Provide an unrivalled services to all our clients.

We provide advice to individuals, trustees, business owners and professionals; and our aim is to help each of our clients develop a suitable and agreeable strategy for achieving their individual goals. We offer independant advice for retail clients in delivering investment portfolios, both Onshore and Offshore including ISAs, Life Bonds and Pension schemes, which may include QROPS and QNUPS. This often includes advice in selecting the most suitable suite of options from life assurance, through retirement planning and into retirement and long term care.

Stiddard has offices in Reigate, Tunbridge Wells, Sittingbourne and Maidstone, and has built up trusted relationships with our clients over many years.

If you wish to talk to us about becoming a Stiddard client, we would like to hear from you and all our initial meetings are free of charge, so you have the peace of mind that you can discuss your individual requirements safe in the knowledge we are not charging you. If you are looking for bespoke one-on-one advice, we can provide you with independent solutions with clear and transparent fees agreed in advance.



We believe that the best way to affect a plan for your finances is to clearly understand where you are today and where you would like to be. We emphasize the need to obtain detailed information about what plans you currently have in place and what is affordable to you and how much risk you are prepared to enter, which includes explaining what risk actually looks like in investing. You may be concerned about getting the best from your retirement or minimising tax, but we operate within an ethical framework where aggressive tax planning would not be a key objective.


Having identified where you are and would like to be, the next step is formulating a plan of how to get to your end goal. Your circumstances can substantially influence what may be the most appropriate strategy and may also dictate whether or not everything you desire can be achieved. Sometimes you may have an attitude to risk that cannot realistically deliver what you are looking for and this will need to be discussed. By focussing on you as an individual and understanding that everyone has a unique set of personal circumstances, we deliver custom strategies tailored to you alone. This can be a complex stage in your financial journey and we will do everything we can to help you understand and become engaged in the solution we are proposing and then delivering.


Delivering your desired position when you want it, we need to implement the strategy and provide ongoing support and management with you as a partner in the process, if this is what you want. We strongly believe in keeping you engaged in the process and helping you understand at every stage why decisions are being proposed. By doing this we are able to act swiftly and you are able to have confidence in what we do at every stage of the journey, as we move closer to your agreed end goal. From the outset, we want you to be able to determine just how much involvement you desire in the plan management.
