About Us

Our Roots

Everett MacLeod was founded as a boutique financial planning consultancy in London in 1997.  Many of our original clients are still with us today. We are even working with some of their children and grandchildren now.

Everett MacLeod has been been shortlisted for several awards and we seek to remain among the top 0.1% of advisors (within the top 20 firms) in the UK, when measured by value delivered to our clients.

To maintain our highly personalised service, we will only work with a small number of clients (fewer than 70 each year). If you share our values, we would love to work with you. Get in touch to see if we are taking on more clients or join our waiting list today.

Client Testimonials

“We found the financial review to be helpful in giving us some reassurance as well as providing a sensible framework to work towards in our later years.”


“A huge thank you for the knowledge and support that I received when I came to our meeting … initially I was not sure what to expect going into a meeting of this sort… however I was very grateful for the information delivered with such kindness. When you asked what I would like to get out of this meeting my three intentions were: clarity, reassurance and positivity. Well you were outstanding and delivered on all 3!!

The clarity came for knowing what my different options were. Reassurance was an important and vital part of this process and you gave this to me in bucket loads. Knowing there were policies and procedures in place and I have a say on how they are established and delivered, (to a certain degree) has given me the reassurance that I was seeking…

I now have peace of mind and space to focus on my future, I can move forward with a positive outlook as I know that you and I have done everything in our professional and personal power to make sure that my family are looked after.

I am so grateful for your professional advice and also for your compassion and positivity.”


Thanks Mike for this clarification. We can relax and go on as before. What a relief to have a financial advisor.”
