thumbI am a financial adviser based in Central Scotland with over 20 years experience, providing highly individual advice focusing on each client’s specific needs and requirements.

Although I advise on all aspects of financial planning, I specialise in giving financial advice to clients for their later years – retirement planning, pensions advice, equity release and will writing / Power of Attorney.

I cover all areas within Central Scotland including Fife, Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, St Andrews, Leven, Burntisland, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and Stirling.

By ensuring that I constantly keep abreast of the ever-changing developments in the Financial Services industry, you can be sure that the advice I give is always up-to-date and relevant to your particular situation. I offer a wide range of advice, products and services including savings and investments, retirement planning, protection advice, mortgage solutions, equity release products and will writing / Power of Attorney.

There is no charge for your initial discussion – this is to identify if I am able to help with your financial planning. If following initial discussion you wish for me to do work on your behalf I will advise you of any charges involved and these charges will be fully discussed and agreed prior to any work being undertaken.

Give me a call now on 01383 414424 or email info@marylynmelbourne.com and we’ll start the process of securing your financial future.

She is very professional, yet friendly and helpful, and has her client s best interests at heart. Furthermore, you can be confident that her knowledge is the most up-to-date and comprehensive available.”

John & Elizabeth WandsRosyth, Fife

“Marylyn gave us excellent mortgage advice when we bought our new home recently – researching the whole of the market for the best mortgage deal. All the stress involved in moving home was greatly reduced as we knew we had an Adviser who we could rely on.”

Gary & Shirleen ShandEdinburgh

“Approaching my retirement I needed advice on my Pension options as it was extremely important I made the right choices and decisions. Marylyn initially visited my home free of charge to discuss my future retirement plans   and see if she could help me. Marylyn explained my options in a straightforward and easily understandable way enabling me to make the best choices for my situation. I have now retired and am very glad I got financial advice from Marylyn before I retired and I am confident I have made the correct decisions with her help. Also Marylyn has arranged to visit me again once I have been retired for six months to check my financial situation is working well.”
