About us

At Blackdown Financial we trace our roots back to the late 1970s when our current Managing Director Lee Tomkins’ family started the original company in the Blackdown hills.

We want our clients to be financially independent, to be able to enjoy life, to pursue goals and dreams, safe and secure in the knowledge they have someone to turn to and rely on.  This is what drives us to be the best we can be.

We are very proud to be Independent Financial Advisers and for us independence is not just a word it is a state of mind.

  • It’s about sitting on the same side of the table as our client, surveying the whole market and choosing the most appropriate solutions.
  • It’s about considering existing financial products (pensions, investments, mortgages, life assurance, etc) by analysing and making recommendations as to whether they should be kept or replaced.  We adopt a view that existing products are suitable unless we can demonstrate otherwise.
  • It’s about being open minded to new developments from across the market and considering whether to recommend these.

We are not a large, faceless institution, we believe in providing personal one to one advice.  Having five advisers and  a strong support team means we are big enough to provide excellent support, yet small enough to really get to know our clients and provide a personal, bespoke service.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

Blackdown Financial update – 24th March 2020

During these unprecedented times, in line with government advice we have now closed our office, with the entire Blackdown Financial team working remotely for the foreseeable future.

We have put into place measures that will ensure we continue to offer our clients a full and seamless financial and mortgage service.

Video conferencing have replaced all of our face to face meetings, and these are proving to be great alternative means of communication with our clients.

Please feel free to contact us on our main number 01823 321616 or email enquiries@blackdownfinancial.co.uk for any of your financial or mortgage needs.
