In perfect world, your financed are sorted. In a perfect world, you have the time and energy to think about your finances and the expertise to make the best of them. But it’s not a perfect world. We all know that financial planning is something that everyone should do but most don’t. It’s easy to push aside, to think about it later. And later never comes, because finances are boring, scary, or just plain confusing.

We Can Help


Over the last decade our client focused and knowledgeable approach to financial advice has led to us becoming a trusted voice.

David is regularly called upon for expert comment and opinion across multiple media channels.

Your 4 STEP ADVICE Journey

This is the four step journey we will go on together which makes sure you receive the quality of advice you deserve. After all, it’s all about you.


By gathering information from you we will find out about any plans you already have in place.

Then by exploring your hopes and aspirations, your attitude to risk and return, we will build a picture of what you want to achieve.

At this stage you will find out what to expect from us and how you will benefit from using us.

We do not usually charge a fee for this stage.

We’ll explore and research various scenarios to make the best use of your existing plans.

We’ll then recommend how you can build on your existing plans so you give yourself the best chance of achieving your goals.

Like most of our clients, you will probably prefer us to do the necessary work to put your plan into action. We will work on your behalf with the provider or lender. This will save you a lot of time and effort and ensure your plans are set up correctly. We will charge you a fee for doing this, which we will explain to you.

Alternatively, you may decide to implement our recommendations yourself, in which case we just charge you for our time and advice.


Nothing stands still, so it makes sense to check the progress and appropriateness of your plans regularly. We suggest you do this annually. This way you will find out if your plans are affected by changes to legislation or taxation.

You will also hear from us if we have something that we feel will interest you.

Holly was brilliant in helping us secure our mortgage and guiding us through the transaction. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and helped make the whole process as stress-free as it possibly could.

We would highly recommend this company. Both Chris and Mark were extremely professional and they gave us excellent advice and service. Mark dealt with my mortgage and he was extremely knowledgable and my mortgage got approved in no time. Chris dealt with my mother’s property and communication with him has been brilliant. Thank you both for your help and we look forward working with you again in the future! Corey & Amy

SIMPLY THE BEST! My wife and I were looking to make an investment and looked at a couple of finance companies. Citrus were by FAR the best. Craig was friendly, professional and EXTREMELY knowledgable and resolved all of our issues and questions finding us a great solution. I would recommend them in a heartbeat, in a word, FANTASTIC.

We couldn’t recommend Cirtus Financial Management enough! They was recommended by a family member and we was certainly not disappointed. Holly Bettles was the best out there and didn’t have any issue with supporting us where needed (even with the most stupidest of questions!!). Considering this was our first time applying for a mortgage, it was the smoothest it could’ve been and that was down to her (she even set up support with our life insurance and wills, which reduced the amount of stress on our side). Would highly recommend and will certainly be using their service going forward.

I have been using Citrus Financial for a number of years to help with Mortgage advice and application. Their team are professional, courteous and efficient. I also know of friends that use them for pension and investment advice, with equally positive feedback on the company's services.

Shirley from Citrus Financial has been nothing short of excellent from our initial enquiry right through to getting our mortgage offer and just recently completing our purchase. Shirley displayed true professionalism during the whole process and above all must have more patience than anyone I have ever met. I would never hesitate to recommend Citrus and especially Shirley to anyone looking for a financial advisor.

We had great service with our mortgage from Shirley at Citrus Financial. She was friendly, supportive, efficient and highly knowledgeable throughout the process, and I feel confident we ended up with a better product as a result. We recommend Shirley and the team at Citrus very strongly - you won't regret using them.
