Which are our 10 Best IFA Websites?
We've picked out 10 of our favourite financial planning websites, it's hard to cover all angles and the choice of course is subjective.
All the sites we design for IFAs and financial planners, we try and make them stand out. We're aware that advisor's demographic is aimed at older clients, those that are perhaps a little less familiar with technology. So simple and intuitive navigation is important, as is making sure what they're searching for is found easily.
We've built many sites for IFAs and financial advisers. Whilst we do the bulk of the work for you, adding content and navigation and coming up with design ideas, your input to make yourselves stand out is vital.
The more information we get from our clients the better, add professional staff photos, think of how you can portray the manner in which you work. think about what you can add to our content offering. The more input we receive from our clients the better their site will be.Our Website Designs Recent Work Our Prices

1. Money@IFA (Financial Adviser Site)
Simon Griffin from Money@IFA particularly wanted to use a design that incorporated a large (screen width) eye-catching slideshow to market his pensions, investments and taxation services. He liked the visual impact that large images presented and wanted a crisp, clean design using strong contrasting colours.
Design trends come and go in all areas of business communication and design, and websites are certainly no exception. Slideshows are one of many effective ways to showcase your firm's services.
Most people respond well to visual content, marketers know that, which is why they use images, slideshows and videos on their sites. For visitors who feel over faced with lengthy content - slideshows can be a good solution.

2. Innovate (IFA Website)
Innovate's website has an eye catching design, with a vivid contrast between yellow and black together with the use of a “hero” image. A “Hero” image is a large banner image, prominently placed on a web page.
It shows the importance of it's client relationships by using attractively laid out testimonials with client logos.
The site's design is eye catching yet clean and consistent, presenting plenty of information and literature for clients (and prospective clients), including a technical guide library, collection of Smart Money Magazines, community partnership and a personal news section.
Personalising a site with additional information for clients, a good choice of images and well laid out feedback can greatly help with marketing and client engagement.

The business model of the Progressive Financial Planning is aimed at high net worth clients and this is reflected in the site's use of graphics andmagery. Images can play a large part is the branding of your website and are a critical part of your website design. We were lucky to have a great graphic designer on hand.
We offer free and discounted images with each of our adviser websites as we have a vested interest in wanting your website to look professional.
We particularly like the attractive way the slides work together with snapshots of those images in each header. It has a brochure type feel to the site, using well writeen but minimal content and plenty of calls to action.

Colour is one of the most significant elements of any website design. It creates emotion and reinforces a brand. Morley Jame's site makes good use of black and white imagery.

You do feel as you browse through the site and look at their weekly market data, technical guides, newsletters and Blog articles that they are going the extra mile.
I like the unique design and the way David Marks from AM&A describes his services: “About You”. You can't help but feel that AM&A is about their clients.
- It's all about their clients, lots of in depth information

7. Keyline Financial Solutions
Martin from Keyline Financial Solutions approached us because his current website provider had informed them that they had to upgrade their current site together with a hefty price increase.
It was important to Keyline Financial Solutions that we did the vast amount of the website build (we always do!) and that we kept the new design in keeping as much as possible with their original site. Their clients are older and Keyline wanted us to provide them with some continuity and familiarity.
We are always very flexible in our approach to IFAs, so we designed a site around one of our website templates (Design D), using aspects from Keyline Financial's original site, bringing it up to date.
It's a very personal looking site, it has many of the images from keyline's original site, together with additional features and content.
