Our Words


When we formed Wealth Built Right, we knew it had to reflect us and the ‘why’ that drives us. To that end we spent a lot of time identifying words that encapsulate exactly that.

These are words that represent our new and contemporary approach to financial advice. They are words that guide us in all that we do and lead us a world of financial possibilities, reimagined.

LOVE. This is a simple word to embrace at Wealth Built Right, we really love what we do and the people we work with. We know that love drives us all and is at the heart of a life lived well.

HONESTY. We are always honest with our clients and ourselves, it is the only way to build and maintain a respectful relationship and achieve the most sustainable outcomes. Honesty is at our core of all that we do.

COURAGE. At Wealth Built Right we don’t shy away from tough conversations or decisions. We know that fortune favours the brave and sometimes it takes courage to seek that fortune. And, sometimes it takes courage not to.

FUN & ADVENTURE. At Wealth Built Right we know you can’t beat a life filled with fun and adventure. It’s the life that we want to live and it’s the life we want to facilitate for our clients.

Your Finances

We will conduct a FREE financial health check, identifying your current position and discovering your life goals and aspirations, not just your financial ones.

Designed for you

You are unique and so are your finances so we will build a bespoke plan that reflects ‘you’ and the future you want. No ‘cookie cutter’ solutions here.

Solid Foundations

Our honest, transparent and upfront approach means that you will never be confused about your financial position or the work we’re doing for you.
