Fixed Financial Planning Fees
At DFP, we believe financial planning fees should be clear, transparent and fixed.
That's why the fees we charge reflect the time, complexity and expertise involved in the service we provide.

How We Charge
Unlike other financial advisors, we don’t calculate our fees as a percentage, nor are they generated by the sale of a financial product.
So, you can rest assured that you’re always getting impartial advice without confliction.
Prices will vary depending on the complexities involved in your personal circumstances and the advice we give you. The figures outlined on this page should give you an idea of what to expect, but we’ll provide an exact quote in your free, initial meeting.
Free, Initial Meeting
All plans include an initial meeting, which is always at our cost. It’s an informal, no obligation chat about you and what you see for your financial future. It’s also a great opportunity for you to get to know the DFP team and how we work. From here, you can decide whether or not you’d like to proceed. Either way, there will be no cost to you.
We calculate our initial fixed fees based on the amount of time we estimate needing to spend on your work and the complexity of that work. Our hourly rates for a Chartered Financial Planner are £225 per hour. VAT may apply.
Whether you’re planning ahead, approaching retirement, or in retirement, each level of plan can be tailored to support your goals.
Keeping You on Track
Once you’ve embarked on your journey with DFP, it’s important to keep your situation under regular review. Our ongoing support options will provide you with advice and regular updates. We’ll also advise you on any necessary amendments to your plan over time, to make sure you stay on the right track.
Your ongoing support will depend on your individual requirements and you’ll be charged on a monthly or annual basis.

The value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Investing in shares should be regarded as a long-term investment and should fit in with your overall attitude to risk and financial circumstances.
