Hello. We are Friarsgate Financial Planning.

We are delighted to announce that Arrow Financial Services and D&G Independent have joined forces to form a new company, Friarsgate Financial Planning Ltd.

Friarsgate was formed in 2019 as a result of an exciting merger between 2 local companies, Arrow Financial Services based in Chester and D&G Independent based in Mold.

The team at Friarsgate is very excited by this merger as it creates a larger, stronger business and offers our clients a wider range of expertise and experience to draw on. We are confident that the creation of Friarsgate puts us in a very strong and enviable position to be able to deliver outstanding financial advice throughout the coming decade and beyond.

For existing clients of either D&G or Arrow, you can expect to receive the same high level of service that you have come to expect from your existing adviser. We are still located in the same offices and our phone numbers remain the same. We have updated our email address, and your adviser will provide these for you, or you can find them on our contact us page.

We will continue to be completely independent as we are not tied to any panel or company and can offer impartial advice based on products from the whole market-place. Friarsgate will continue to be committed to regular reviews to ensure we take account of the many changes in your life and in the financial market-place.

Although both companies were based on opposite sides of the English/Welsh border, the 4 directors formed a close friendship having attended many joint seminars and industry events in addition to both being proud members of the ‘Chamber of Commerce’. They also attended many Rugby Internationals together but the less said about that the better!

With both companies sharing a commitment to Independent Financial Advice and with the increasing costs in the industry associated with this, discussions began with the possibility of a merger. With talented young advisers in both companies, a merger brings about a clear succession planning path, ensuring the company is well-positioned to prosper for many years ahead, providing excellent service to both new and existing clients.

We are also very excited to announce we have teamed up with the Sense Network Ltd, who we have recently engaged to provide us with ongoing business and regulatory support.

The team at Friarsgate are incredibly excited and proud of the new company and we all look forward to working with you in the future.
