Welcome to Novus Financial Services
We are financial advisers working with clients in Harrogate, Yorkshire and further afield.
There are many reasons why people seek financial advice.
Some are worried about a particular issue and feel that a financial adviser can help. Others are looking to the future and know that they need to start planning if they are to achieve their aspirations.
Naturally, the events life throws at us from time to time will have a huge impact on our finances. The birth of a child, the death of a loved one, illness and job changes all effect our financial wellbeing.
Whatever your reason for seeking advice, our financial advisers are here for you. We’ll listen, help solve your problems and assist you in planning for the future.

What our clients have to say
“The Team at Novus is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. It is easy and pleasurable to discuss situations with them, either face to face or over the phone. They are happy to discuss any financial problem no matter how small. Regular updates on my pension situation are easily understood with ongoing advice offered immediately on request. They have looked after my pension for ages and will continue to do so.”
“Chris has been dealing with my financial affairs since the early '90s and Claire since 2014. I have always found them both extremely efficient and easy to deal with. I have no qualms about recommending them to anyone who is looking for a reliable company that is still small enough to offer a personal service.”
