A wide selection of Private Client Guides that cover a range of wealth planning and investment topics. 

To help prospective and existing investors make more informed decisions about their wealth we have produced a series of easy to read guides. Topics range from a basic introduction to Investing to ideas for Retirement Planning. Other examples include a Guide to ISA's and one for Self-Invested Personal Pensions.

What our clients say

There is no better way of evidencing the results of our approach than through the words of our clients.

Church House is a rarity these days – a business that actually does focus on the needs of its clients by providing a truly personal level of service. Their level of communication with their customers is particularly good, with responses to queries on investment concerns prompt and efficient. They have always been there when we needed them and we are delighted that our investments have allowed us to achieve some of our special ambitions.

Jeremy and Maggie Corke

I have been with Church House for many years. Our questions are always answered clearly in a language we understand. Over the years, not only have they managed my money but also run my mother’s portfolio and my aunt’s, and I hope that one day my daughters will follow on. Church House has become a family tradition.

Dorothy Glenday

Our contact with Church House Investments over many years has been instructive and helpful. It has always been comforting to feel our funds are in such safe and progressive hands. The support we have received from our advisers has been invaluable and we so appreciate their friendship and help. This has led to us recommending to our next generation the same advice and guidance, which they greatly appreciate.

I don’t know how you do it, no, I’ll correct that, I think I know, you at Church House Investment Management are switched on to every potential nuance and potential change in the market so that downward and upward trends are spotted in advance.  Thank you in particular, and your team in general, for delivering such good returns.  A foolish man is he who doesn’t strive to invest more with you and that will be my aim in the coming years.
