About Us

Here at The Mellor Practice we have been offering our clients Independent Financial Advice for over thirty years. Markets and economics change, but one thing remains: the value of unhurried, face to face advice and service. When you contact us by telephone during working hours, 99% of the time you will speak to a human being, not a machine.

With offices just outside Arundel and now in the center of Worthing West Sussex, our team of Independent Financial Advisers covers a wide area across the South and South-East of England, meeting the needs of our clients in Sussex, Kent, Surrey, Hampshire and as far afield as Oxfordshire and London. You can visit our offices or, if you prefer, we’ll come to your home. You’ll find us friendly and approachable!

“You need to trust a financial adviser, and within minutes of meeting Mark he put all the family at ease. With his financial skills and knowledge, our money has been worked ‘hard’ to grow. Mark acts immediately on anything discussed. I would certainly be very happy to recommend Mark Rose to anyone.”

– Mr & Mrs Sculthorpe

“Mark has successfully guided me through planning my finances and investments to best suit the needs of myself and my family. These investments have been skilfully made to maximise returns. Mark is a very professional and approachable adviser, and, most importantly, extremely responsive. I commend his services.”

– Mr Buckle

“My wife and I have been clients of The Mellor Practice / Lighthouse Wealth since 2008 when we were provided with advice in establishing a portfolio of investments which has proved to be successful.
A feature of the initial consultation and the subsequent annual reviews has been a high level of professional competence combined with an unhurried and personal service, attuned to our particular needs.
I have particularly appreciated Brenda Mellor’s ability and readiness to provide clear explanations of the more complex technical issues which have arisen and the support provided by Brenda and her colleagues from time to time in dealing with specific financial institutions. On more than one occasion problems relating to the administration of funds have been resolved by a timely intervention and in a way which reinforces confidence in the IFA.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Practice.”
– Mr Doran
