Navigate Your Finances With Our Trusted Teams Across Dundee, Forfar, Brechin, Montrose, Perth, and Crieff

Living and working in the beautiful Scottish towns of Dundee, Forfar, Brechin, Montrose, Perth, and Crieff offers a unique blend of urban convenience and rural charm – just some of the many reasons MMG Chartered Accountants have established offices in each of these renowned locations! 

Operating within these regions, we support businesses and individuals to manage their finances, navigate economic uncertainty, and stay informed with the latest policies to guide them on their financial journeys. This is where our team of financial advisers comes in – they work closely with clients on an individual basis to understand their goals, worries, and financial situation (as well as changes) to help create a personalised (and achievable!) financial plan. If you are exploring your investment options, our financial advisors will also adapt their recommendations based on your risk tolerance and provide further insight that may help your portfolio succeed. 


Why is a local financial adviser so important?

In a digital age, it’s becoming more and more common for people to seek financial advice online, which can lead them to find financial advisors living far outside their local area, which can make it harder to collaborate, difficult to reach when needed, or tricky to visit in person! Here are some of the many reasons we recommend finding a financial advisor near you rather than seeking support further afield: 

  • Local Expertise: Financial advisers in your local area usually have a deeper understanding of the local economy, job market, and housing trends. They can tailor their advice to the specific challenges and opportunities you face as a resident within the region and surrounding areas.
  • Tailored & Up-To-Date Advice: No two financial situations are alike, and similarly to the previous point, our financial advisors will take the time to get to know you and your unique needs – creating a plan that will not fit your circumstances but also take into consideration changes to the local economy, 
  • Local Investment Support: Managing investments can be overwhelming, especially in today’s volatile market! Our financial advisers can help you navigate the complexities of investing, taking the stress out of your financial decisions and offering 1-to-1 in-person time to go through your options in detail. Being able to meet with your investment advisor in person also makes it easier to communicate and share non-digital resources.
  • Retirement Planning Support: If you’re looking to retire in a specific region, speaking to a financial advisor in that area can be very enlightening! Whether you’re just starting out in your career or nearing retirement, a financial adviser can help you plan for your future financial security. They can also advise you on the best pension options, savings strategies, and ways to maximise your retirement income for when the time comes!
  • Ongoing Support and Guidance: Your financial journey isn’t a one-time trek! MMG Chartered Accountants provide ongoing support and guidance, ensuring your plan stays on course and, more importantly, adapts to changing circumstances. We’re not here to “tell you off” when things slip – we want to be here for you through the struggles and the successes!


What are the most common financial concerns in Dundee, Forfar, Brechin, Montrose, Perth, and Crieff?

While no two days are the same for our teams, some financial concerns are brought up more regularly than others, including concerns about:

  • Saving for a home deposit: With beautiful countryside and charming towns, Dundee, Forfar, Brechin, Montrose, Perth, and Crieff attract many young professionals just starting out on the property ladder as well as many looking to upscale, downscale, or generally settle down. A financial adviser can help you develop a realistic savings plan to reach your homeownership goals.
  • Investing for retirement: With an ageing population, many residents are concerned about their financial security in retirement. A financial adviser can help you choose the right investments and strategies to ensure a comfortable retirement whether you are nearing returning age or simply planning ahead. 
  • Securing your family’s future: Life can be unpredictable so it’s important to have the right insurance in place to protect your loved ones. A financial adviser can help you assess your insurance needs and choose the right policies, understand the financial jargon, and navigate your insurance plan’s terms. 
  • Managing outstanding debt: Debt can be a major burden as it’s not always just a financial burden but also an emotional one – a financial adviser can help you develop a plan to manage your debt and get back on track at a sustainable pace.


How To Find A Good Local Financial Adviser

With so many options when it comes to choosing a financial adviser, it’s important to consider the following when making your selection as it can make a significant difference to your experience with your chosen provider (as well as impacting your finances long-term):

  • Ask for recommendations: Beyond just online reviews, recommendations from friends, family, colleagues, and even social media groups and message boards can help you narrow down your list and hear the first-hand experiences of others. 
  • Do your research: Check out the qualifications and experience of different advisors via the company’s website, LinkedIn, or other sites; and consider requesting quotes from a few businesses to compare their service offering and fees.
  • Schedule a consultation: When you’ve narrowed down your selection list to a small handful of options (perhaps 2-4), it’s a good idea to meet with the companies and the advisors you’d be working with to see who you feel most comfortable with. Ask about their experience, philosophy, and the level of support they can offer for your individual circumstances to get a better feel for the type of service you will receive.
