One of our core ethical beliefs is that equality is a fundamental human right that everyone in the world deserves.

We interpret the idiom “live and let live”  to mean to take charge of and take responsibility for your life (and your business) by both defining and peacefully pursuing your own happiness while honouring the equal rights of other competent adults to do the same. 

Pride Month is celebrated every June as a tribute and in recognition of those involved in the Stonewall Inn riots in New York’s Greenwich Village on 28th June 1969. Pride Month is about people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far gay rights have come, even if in some places there’s still some work to be done.

It’s also about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward inequality.


Members of our team are required to complete an annual refresher of the Equality Act and successfully be tested on that knowledge.

We were delighted to see our friend and competitor financial planner, Stuart Anthony, make the headlines on Five News, recognising his work as Captain of the Grace Cricket Club, the world’s first dedicated LGBTQ Cricket Club. We’ve included Stu’s moment of fame below:

We wish Stu, the Grace Cricket Club and all those celebrating a happy and peaceful Pride 2021
