Our Privacy Promise Spending Planning will use your details to contact you regarding your enquiry, our solutions, products and services, otherwise your details will remain private, confidential and never be disclosed to any third party.


Certified Spending Planners are obviously busy people, but they're happy to spend time with you to discuss your situation, answer your questions, and create an opportunity for you both to see if there would be any benefit in working together.

Considering that most people will only request a call from a Spending Planner when they are under money stress, Spending Planners are very aware of the need to offer affordable solutions that are appropriate to their clients' situation. Their service is money-back guaranteed so if they do not feel that any of the solutions they have to offer would suit your needs they will not make an offer, but instead will suggest alternate options for you to consider.
