The Astra Group is an international, independent financial consultancy with a presence in Europe and Asia. (Astra Financial Services & Astra Asia)
From pensions, investments, protection, estate planning to mortgage and property solutions, we offer tailor-made financial planning to private clients worldwide.
We pride ourselves for being entirely independent. This does not mean we are isolated, but on the contrary, we collect ideas and thoughts from some of the most respected names in the investment world. Our clients enjoy the full benefits of this as it means that there are no restrictions placed on recommending best-in-class investments and at the same time we are well positioned to design suitable, personalised portfolios as we have a deep understanding of individual needs and circumstances.
Our Mission is simple: To provide proactive and prudent advice, that will help our clients achieve financial well-being, allowing them to spend more time enjoying life's rewards.
We are dedicated to our five core values:
we believe strong and successful relationships are built on trust
we are committed to the highest standards of business ethics and good governance.
we are a team of professionals, who are dedicated to education and the concept of lifelong learning.
We are proud members of some of the most respected organisations in the industry (STEP, FEIFA, CISI)
we firmly believe that if you are passionate about what you do, then you will do it to the best of your ability
we maintain focus on our clients’ needs by constantly seeking to understand their goals, priorities and values, and adapting as they change over time
We serve affluent individuals and families at every phase of their personal and professional lives, from the initial stages of wealth accumulation, through retirement and estate planning. This can mean providing holistic financial solutions to support their desired lifestyle, or covering a specific area of interest.
Our clients are typically expatriates who need complex, personalised advice and access to an international range of financial products, to take advantage of their offshore status. Many of our clients may have unique questions with regard to their circumstances, where normally it is hard to get advice. This could, for example, be a situation where a client has a spouse of a different nationality, they possess assets in multiple jurisdictions and would need an internationally applicable investment strategy to preserve and grow their capital.
We are not tied to anybody and work with various providers to make sure we have a suitable range of products that fits individual needs. We cooperate with both large multinational and boutique firms and we do a thorough due diligence on each provider, to make sure it is geared to living up to our and our clients’ expectations.
