Financial services advisory Shalchi and Partners has launched its first offices in the UK in London.
Fully-licensed by the FCA, the privately-owned company boasts a team of UK-qualified professional advisers at its new London headquarters.
The practice offers a full suite of advisory services in such areas as pensions and retirement, savings and investments as well as mortgages.
CEO Hamzah Shalchi previously ran Dubai-based Guardian Wealth Management and has more than a decade of experience in the UK and Middle East.
Shalchi said: “We are honoured to establish Shalchi and Partners in the UK and determined to offer our clients the very best in financial services. That means combining cutting-edge expertise with traditional values and building long-lasting relationships with clients.
“Our team brings together some of the brightest, most talented minds in the industry, all highly-experienced in a variety of areas. We share an approach of listening to our clients’ needs and providing the highest quality of information, guidance and advice.”
Due to the company’s privately-owned status, it has no ties to specific product providers, pension trustees, fund managers or other financial parties.
Shalchi added: “Our team approach ensures that you are not just gaining from the experience and expertise of one professional planner, but from a group of specialists working together and invested together into the success of your financial plan.
“As an independent company, we can search the whole market without influence, giving clients the confidence that we are recommending the most suitable products and strategy to meet their goals, and at the best pricing.”
