Our Company

Matthew Slessor Wealth Management was established in 2022 and built on the need to be able to give clients a high calibre, impartial and clear advice, backed by superior levels of personal service. We put the client at the heart of everything we do.

Finding the right adviser is about trust as well as having the right skills to do the job, and we take the trust placed in us very seriously.

We feel that there should be no restrictions or conflicts when providing advice to our clients.

Are financial advisers all the same? Not so, some are Restricted which means they have a limited tool kit, some are Independent, which is acknowledged as being the pinnacle of advice.

Matthew Slessor Wealth Management provides Independent Financial Advice.

Named after its founder, Matthew Slessor has worked for 32 years at both Restricted and Independent firms, so has seen both sides of the advisory offering, Matthew himself has individual chartered financial status.

Yes, Independent is better.
