Our story

Our pursuit: To create a unique local independent financial service

Steve founded Solent Financial Services In 2009, having already gained over 20 years of experience in finance. He wanted to deliver the best possible service, one he himself would be delighted to receive, for clients locally and further afield. Initially working from home, he was supported by Teresa and provided help and advice to a large and continually growing client base that has remained with him over the years. In 2011 Solent Financial Services opened an office in a prominent position in Warsash Village, under the Clock Tower moving further up Shore Road in 2017 to a larger office.  In 2022 moving to a purpose built office in Dibles Road, Warsash – where today we enjoy seeing local clients who sometimes pop in just to say hello!
