CuparNow KnowHow – RS Robertson Financial Planning
The next in our KnowHow series – showcasing the skills and experience of those working in Cupar – features Gordon Laing, director at RS Robertson Financial Planning. We caught up with Gordon to discover more …
Gordon is a golfer and, as any golfer knows, your game benefits from experience and attention to detail. The same applies in Gordon’s work – focusing on each and every client’s needs when it comes to financial planning. Gordon explains: “I’ve spent my entire career in financial services.” That experience is so valuable when it comes to helping clients.
A director of RS Robertson Financial Planning – on Crossgate in Cupar – the firm provides financial planning advice for every life stage. Gordon says: “We make it easier for you to manage your finances, with personal, face-to-face advice designed to meet your long-term requirements.”
Gordon has run his own financial planning firm which merged into the firm that is RS Robertson Financial Planning today. Combined, it offers almost a half century of knowledge and expertise across a broad range of services …
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
The value of an investment with St James’ Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.
Through St James’ Place we provide access to specialist banking services.
His work delivers real satisfaction. He says: “Being able to help people, our clients, achieve things they perhaps didn’t think were possible through careful financial planning continues to inspire me to grow the business and give the best advice.”
The firm has several financial advisors. Gordon adds: “We have a broad depth of experience to suit a wide variety of clients and their financial goals. We are accredited to carry out pension transfer work. We also give mortgage advice so it really is a complete financial planning service under one roof – there’s far fewer offering this range of services these days!”
Currently a team of eight – but expanding all the time – there’s also a wealth of support behind Gordon and his team. RS Robertson Financial Planning is an Appointed Representative of and represents only St. James’s Place Wealth Management plc (which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority) for the purpose of advising solely on the group’s wealth management products and services.
He is very proud of the work he and his team deliver – and especially proud to be investing in people, enabling them to progress in their careers. “When I think of all the clients we’ve helped and the difference financial planning has made to them, so many happy stories come to mind.” He adds: “When we help people achieve retirement earlier than they thought possible and see them enjoying what they like doing outside of work and spending time with friends and family – that always feels very rewarding.”
Away from the office, Gordon is a keen golfer: “When I’m not at work, I’m improving my golf swing of course! You’ll often find me at Ladybank or St Andrews Golf Clubs. That’s where I like to relax and meet up with friends.”
And as with all of our KnowHow features, we asked Gordon what he would recommend to anyone visiting Cupar for the first time – or for the first time in a long time: “If golf isn’t your thing, everyone needs to take a trip to Fisher & Donaldson to try their legendary fudge doughnuts. The main shop at Ceres Road is an absolute feast for the eyes. I’d recommend sitting in, having a coffee and trying out some of their delicacies, savoury and sweet!”
