Our promise
  • We’ll be open and clear with you at all times – we’ll meet with you regularly and are always available should you need us.
  • We’ll make you aware of all the possible options – we’re fully independent and so are only interested in finding the best outcome for you.
  • We’ll help you make the right decisions – based on your own unique needs and goals.
  • We’ll be there for you during market highs and lows – to reassure you and help you steer a steady course.
Our values

Our culture is based on one thing – that people matter – whether you’re a client or part of our team. We want people to feel listened to, appreciated and valued. At Sutherland Independent, we make sure our team members’ objectives are linked to those of the company, which means everyone is integral to the success of the business and accountable for what they do. 

We also like to give something back: we raised substantial funds to help the homeless by taking part in Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park. We also recently provided headline sponsorship for the Make Seconds Count Ball, which raised £50,000 for cancer research.
