About us

We take pride in providing a complete financial planning and investment service. We ensure that clients understand our recommendations, explaining our rationale in a straight-forward and transparent manner that enables comprehension and peace of mind.

The quality of our business is evidenced by being named a Gold Standard Award winner for independent financial advice. The Gold Standard Awards are focused on the financial services sector. They recognise not only a company’s capability to conduct its business, but also assess standards of service, financial strength, fair value and trust, as well as governance and social responsibility. We are also accredited by Investors in People, which is the UK’s leading accreditation for business improvement through people management.

Saunderson House has been owned by IFG Group plc since 2001. IFG is a financial services business quoted on the Dublin and London stock exchanges. In March 2010, James Hay (a SIPP provider) was acquired by IFG. The management of Saunderson House and James Hay are separate and act independently of one another. Saunderson House always acts in the best interests of its clients and takes an unbiased ‘whole market’ view when providing advice.
