We are the antithesis of price-comparison websites and the caveats, hidden limitations and “gotchas” that often come with their so-called “deals”.

Financial Wellbeing the KGJ Way

At KGJ, we strongly believe in the community outlook, bespoke advice and tailored solutions approach to financial services, because the only way to attain true financial wellbeing is to entrust the experts. Together, we'll provide you with the most tailored financial advice on the market, for rewarding results that are most definitely worth it.

In this ever-connected online world, it’s all too easy to see an online deal for an insurance package, a mortgage or any other serious financial commitment, and grab the cheapest deal. However, there are dangers with this approach. Insurance can be complex, and it is too easy to pay for cover you do not actually need. Even worse, in the aftermath of a disaster, you could discover you have insurance that does not cover you for what you do need. We've seen the devastating consequences of poor online coverage far too many times and want to guide you away from these pitfalls.


A busy office

Our managing director Martin Wood founded KGJ in 1969 – and while the world may have changed over the past five decades, the values associated with quality financial advice and custom solutions have remained as important as ever. The friendly and plain-speaking experts at KGJ have your financial wellbeing as their only concern and are only ever a phone call away.

We stand by your side throughout the twists and turns of life, having seen many clients go from the beginning of their careers to full, happy retirement. Your financial commitments and monetary wellbeing are just too important to entrust to faceless brands. It’s the reason why so many of our clients recommend us to friends and family, allowing us to guide an increasing number of financial futures from generation to generation.
