Our Story

Four Oaks Financial Services Limited is an established and well respected financial services company providing financial advice to both personal and corporate clients. Our Advisers are appropriately qualified. One of our Advisers has achieved Chartered Financial Planner status and is a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society. We have our own Academy and members of our team are working towards chartered status.

Four Oaks Financial Services Limited is owned and operated by Martin Ward and his management team.

Martin Ward

Based in Shenstone Wood End near Sutton Coldfield our team of expert Advisers work extensively in the local area of Lichfield, Tamworth and Greater Birmingham but we have clients throughout the UK. A large number of whom have moved further afield but continue to work with us owing to our exceptional customer service and the value we generate for them from our financial advice.

Some years ago Martin recognised that the finance sector was increasing in complexity and subject to changing rules and regulations almost on a daily basis. This was making it very difficult for a single Adviser to keep up to date with all the changes and regulatory obligations whilst at the same time providing an excellent, robust level of financial services generating meaningful returns for his clients.

Martin has succeeded in building a team of Advisers supported by qualified administrators and an in-house research team based at our offices near Lichfield.

Our researchers work full-time on behalf of our Advisers and clients, undertaking the research needed in today’s fast moving financial services sector to successfully provide timely advice and manage the financial planning needs of our personal and corporate clients.

Why Choose Us?

We have a team of Advisers and hundreds of customers who have benefitted from our advice for many years.

We have won several awards and have been voted Professional Business of the Year in local awards for Tamworth, Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield in 2013 and 2014, we were Highly Commended in 2015 and Finalists in 2016!

We are active members of our local community and very proud to support the Buddy Bag Foundation. This charity works throughout the UK to help children who have to flee their homes because of abuse or violence, often in the middle of the night, with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. A Buddy Bag is a backpack full of essential items a child needs such as pyjamas, toiletries, underwear, socks and a teddy bear.

Restoring a sense of safety and security into a child’s life during a time of trauma is one of the first steps to their recovery and the aim of the Buddy Bag Foundation is to help their transition into their new surroundings which is often a women’s refuge. At Four Oaks we support Buddy Bag through fundraising activities and we also help to pack the Buddy Bags. They call it a Buddy Bag Brigade.

Our Aim

Our aim is simply to offer financial advice in a clear, transparent manner providing simple to understand recommendations allowing our clients to be informed before making any decisions. The first time we meet we find out whether the client prefers steady savings that grow conservatively or whether they want investments with higher risk but potentially higher rewards, or they are perhaps somewhere in between. This is often referred to as a client’s risk profile.

At Four Oaks Financial Services we develop lasting relationships with our clients and have a lifestyle planning approach to financial planning. We spend time to help our clients understand their financial situation and choices. Unlike advisers who meet you only once we visit our clients on a regular basis because we really do actively manage their financial needs. We review their arrangements and talk to them about the best way forward for them to achieve the maximum return in line with their individual risk profile.

Our Fees

We provide easy to understand illustrations to explain the cost of any advice and how the payment can be made.

We agree on the ongoing level of service our client requires, and explain how this is to be charged. Our first meeting is funded by us and without obligation. To meet with one of our expert financial advisers please contact us and we can arrange for you to see us at our offices at Shenstone Wood End near Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth or at your home.
