Rutherford Hughes Ltd

Removing The Stress From Financial Planning

As a firm of Independent Financial Advisers and Wealth Managers based in Newcastle upon Tyne we listen to your needs and objectives to produce financial solutions that make your money work hard for you.

We have been helping our clients meet their financial goals for over 30 years. We are so confident in our abilities. If you would like a reference from one of our clients, they would be happy to speak to you and tell you exactly why they trust us.

Why Trust Us?

At Rutherford Hughes Ltd we have years of experience and offer a hands-on approach to our clients.

We believe that by providing first class financial advice and service, our clients have become the best advocates for Rutherford Hughes Ltd, which is the reason we are recommended so often by our clients, solicitors and accountants.

Why Work With RHL?

Our main differentiator is our process-driven investment strategies.

All funds are continually monitored to ensure that only above average funds make up the strategies. We focus on diversification. Unlike many, we are not overly UK centric, as this brings additional risk.

We have a global spread of equities and bias towards smaller and mid-sized companies, which offer more growth opportunities and are more agile.

This, when combined with the wide-ranging experience of our advisers, and commitment to service, truly sets us apart from any other IFA’s or our larger competitors.

    I have found Rutherford Hughes to be very professional and easy to deal with. David Hughes explains the options available in a comprehensive and informative way without resorting to complex technical terms. The firm has a friendly approach and they deal with requests for information and follow up points in an efficient and a timely manner. They have an approach that gives you confidence that you are getting a bespoke service and that your business is important to them.

    We have been absolutely delighted with gains that our investments have been making over the last two years. Considering the covid financial market turbulence, we have still made a solid increase in our initial investment. We are always kept up to date via emails regarding monthly reports on our investments. Also if we have had any concerns we have always received a quick response which has been extremely reassuring. We would definitely recommend using Rutherford Hughes for any financial advice.

    When dealing with Peter from Rutherford Hughes, I have found the service professional, personable and responsive to individual circumstances. Peter is very amenable and patient and is happy to explain issues in layman's terms to make sure the client fully understands their options. Peter has managed the investments in a knowledgeable and thorough way leading to consistently positive results despite a difficult and changing market place.

    After my retirement in 2018 I wanted to invest, what was to me, a large portion of my lump sum and was nervous to say the least. After my first contact I had several meetings with Peter Rutherford who allayed my fears. He was so patient and tirelessly explained everything to me in terms I could understand, never was he anything but 100% professional and friendly. His advice is certainly paying off in these uncertain times. I highly recommend them to anyone.
