Not Your Typical
Adviser Firm
Kennedy Black is a pioneering, award-winning, independent
financial planning and wealth management firm based in London.

True independence is a rare commodity in finance these days.


We are independently owned, so there is no underlying agenda.  We have no products of our own to ‘sell’ you. We have access to the whole market. We shun the latest investment fads and will ignore products that have attractive sales pitches but won’t be good for our clients in the long run.


We like to think we are refreshingly different – that our client relationships are all about trusted and valued advice, never about sales. Our job is to ensure the long-term success of our clients. That’s much more valuable to us than a quick sale.


We meet the highest standards for financial advice around the world, and them go a step further. The standard we set is: we genuinely want your decision to work with us to be one of the best decisions of your life.


We are proud to be different.

“My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

Our clients’ interests come first. Always.


We promise to be open, fair and transparent at all times.


Before all new business, you will receive an engagement letter setting out the scope of our work and what fees will apply (in pounds and pence).


We aim to deliver a first-class service to our clients.


We try to use the latest technology to deliver the best possible service to our clients. Yet we are paranoid about data security.


We want to build life-long relationships with clients and their families. That means we feel accountable for the advice we deliver, not just now but many decades in the future.
