Our Independent Financial Advisers – Ringwood, Hampshire

Howard Goodship and Stewart Sims-Handcock offer independent financial advice and investment management to clients in Ringwood and the surrounding Dorset and Hampshire towns of Fordingbridge, Burley, Verwood, Ferndown, Wimborne and Christchurch. They offer a free, no obligation initial meeting to identify how they can add value to any financial planning and investment decisions.

Both our Ringwood independent financial advisers are Fellows of the Personal Finance Society (FPFS) and Chartered Financial Planners (CFP), the highest industry qualification. Stewart is also a STEP affiliate member, a global professional association for practitioners specialising in family inheritance and succession planning.

Howard manages our Ringwood office. He has over 25 years financial services experience and previously opened and managed the Ringwood Offices of Edward Jones, where he was also a General Partner, responsible for the South of England. Stewart has worked for almost two decades in financial services helping high net worth individuals most recently in Edward Jones and Tilney Limited. He has held managerial and advisory positions at various financial and wealth management firms.

Our Ringwood financial advisers are advocates of cash flow planning, which provides a visual “roadmap” of a person’s financial future. This helps clients understand what they need to do financially to achieve their goals in areas such as retirement saving, generating an income during retirement and passing on any remaining estate tax-efficiently (IHT planning). Once identified, our advisers work alongside clients to ensure their investments and financial plans can support, and ideally enhance, their lifestyle.

Howard and Stewart both have extensive experience of pensions, investment ISAs, inheritance tax, investment bonds and other tax efficient savings. They also have considerable expertise on Trust Investments for both individual clients and trustees. Both advisers often work alongside solicitors and accountants to ensure clients receive the most appropriate professional financial advice, and Stewart works with solicitors on financial planning during and after divorce settlements.

In 2018 Lonsdale Services won the Retirement Planner Award (RPA) for Best Individual Pension Advice firm in the South East and Anglia, and we were ‘highly commended’ in the Estate Planner Adviser category. In 2017 we won the RPA Outstanding Customer Care award.

Financial Advisers: Howard Goodship, Stewart Sims-Handcock

Chartered Financial Planners

Howard recently completed a full financial review for myself and my wife. The process was effectively managed from start to finish. Howard’s attention to detail was absolutely thorough without being at all intrusive. He was unfailingly patient, fully attentive to our needs and feelings and professional in his manner at all times. The Cash-Flow projections he supplied to us were particularly helpful and informative for assisting us with our future planning. We would fully recommend Howard - a financial adviser who listens and who is totally impartial!”
