About us

Founded to break the mould

Founded by Richard Allen and Karel Jacobs in 2001, Canter Holland was built upon their shared vision of a financial services business that was different from the norm.

We know our approach works – most of our business comes from recommendation and word-of-mouth; a real testament to the expertise and professionalism of our team. As a Chartered Financial Planning firm we are recognised for providing quality independent financial advice.

As soon as you meet us you’ll realise we’re different

We’ve created an environment of friendly professionalism so you’ll feel comfortable talking about your plans for the future. And between us, we have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you achieve your aspirations.

Our journey

From our 5th floor office in Dover Street, London, our business has grown organically but has always retained the philosophy that made us different from day one. We may now have a growing headquarters in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, alongside our London base in Clerkenwell, but we always endeavour to be the trusted experts our clients can rely upon.

From 2001 to today, we have always been confident in the value we provide, which is why we aren’t afraid of being completely transparent about how we work and how we’re paid. We always strive to build long-term relationships with our clients – and we know that’s only achievable if we inspire their trust and confidence.
