Welcome to Longhurst

Longhurst is a human-first financial planning practice which combines inspirational lifestyle planning with expert independent financial advice and wealth management.

Working predominantly with business owners and senior executives, together we will answer your big financial life questions, such as:

  • How do we put a clear financial plan in place for our future?
  • Do we have enough money to live a fulfilled and secure life?
  • Will my family be ok if something happens to me?
  • How do I ensure my wealth is protected and passed down through my bloodline?
  • What type of legacy will I leave behind?

We will help you to turn a vague financial future into a vivid one.

We will help you to focus on leading a happier life, not just a wealthier one.

We will encourage you to stop, reflect, and really think about what and who matters most to you.

And, where needed, we will also help to install and build financial confidence.

We help people to visualise and then maximise every possible life opportunity.

Remembering – Life’s not a rehearsal, so let’s get planning!

    Team - Longhurst

We build long-term trusted relationships with our clients where your return-on-life sits at the core of every financial plan we build.

We do this by focusing on three key values:

Longhurst - Humanity


We’re financial experts, and meticulous ones at that, however our real passion lies in the human nature  side of our work, with your return-on-life, and not just portfolio balances, being the measure of our success.

Longhurst - Empathy


We pride ourselves on always acting with transparency and integrity. We create space for honest discussions that put authenticity and honesty at the heart of each and every conversation.


We take time to listen and understand how you are feeling. To see the world through your eyes. No judgement and certainly no opinion. Just a simple focus on helping you to live life on your terms.

I have used Chris's services for a few years now and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. I trust his advice and guidance where I have limited experience and knowledge about financial matters. He is reliable and pragmatic yet flexible and adaptable. On a personal note, Chris has supported me and my family through changing (and sometimes challenging) circumstances and been a reassuring voice throughout.

I’ve never felt silly asking questions to Chris or any of his team at longhurst. Their service is second to none, they manage to work professionally but with all the trust that you would give a close friend. Very highly recommend the longhurst team.

Have been a client of Chris since before the Longhurst days I have always found his approach so much more involving than pure financial advice. Having recently retired I was excited to see Longhurst had expanded their services to include comprehensive Estate Planning - something which had been in my thoughts for some time. Chris was able to outline the process very clearly and illustrate its long term benefits ensuring ongoing security for my family.

Longhurst's human-focused approach is what sets them apart from other financial planners. They genuinely care about their clients. It's the extra touches. And their desire to go the extra mile. It's refreshing to work with such a forward-thinking company, driven by Chris, who is one of the most compassionate, honest and genuine people I have met.
