What data do we hold

We hold personal data for Advisors, Directors and Partners at the advisory firms we work with or who have expressed an interest in the services we provide via our contact form, email or telephone.

This data will include names, addresses, telephone numbers, email address and general correspondence received via electronic and paper form.
Whilst our client is the financial adviser, we may receive data relating to the end investor. This makes us a data processor rather than a data controller. The information that we may receive from the advisors about their clients may include names, emails, date of birth and investment details such as portfolio numbers, balances, transaction histories.
We also hold data relating to staff members including names, dates-of-birth, addresses, National Insurance Numbers, identification, bank details and general correspondence.
