    The H Capital Discovery meeting is a no obligation, get to know one another session which takes place with one of our fiduciaries.

During the meeting we’ll aim to establish your current circumstances and objectives, your risk appetite, your time horizon – a little similar to a consultation with your doctor, but we’ll ask questions about your financial affairs rather than your state of health, necessarily. At that point we should have enough information to be able to revert with advice.
