Our Philosophy

We believe that a successful investment proposition is one built around the advice philosophy of the professional advisers who best understand their clients.

Working with Albmarle has removed a lot of work and huge amounts of anxiety. I interviewed 19 DFMs and felt Albemarle would create more personalised risk-rated portfolios for me than larger firms. They are more inclined to listen to your needs and concerns.

A North-West based professional adviser

Albemarle don’t necessarily try to fit us to their packaged solutions but are willing to work with us to achieve solutions we are all happy with.

A London based professional adviser

The words partnership and collaboration are banded around by providers without any real substance! The Albemarle approach is a true partnership, enabling our clients to feel re-assured they are receiving the best possible solution whilst we maintain a continual level of involvement and oversight of the decision making process.
