About us


Who we are






Atkins Bland is a medium sized independent financial adviser specialising in asset allocation advice linked to investment, pension and tax planning. We are based in Ferndown, Dorset but have clients all over Britain.


With around 32 staff, including 7 fully qualified advisers, we are ideally placed to provide the perfect mixture of personal service and professionalism.






What we do


Our core service is the provision of individual, bespoke financial planning solutions. This is structured around an ongoing advice process focussed on clients rather than customers and is driven by comprehensive in-house research and analysis.


This website is not intended to provide any recommendations. There are plenty that are, but we believe sound advice should follow two way communication, and is not well suited to any automated processes.


If you feel, after you have looked around this site, that we might be what you are looking for, then we would love to hear from you.



What we stand for


We stand for independent thinking rather than following the crowd.


We stand for professionalism rather than mass marketing.


We stand for personal service rather than automation.


Our mission is to help our clients meet their financial needs and aspirations.


This website says a little about who we are and what we do. If you like the way we think, please get in touch.
