With expert advice in all financial areas such as Pensions, SIPPS, Savings, Investments, Protection Plans and Trust Planning, our clients are extremely well looked after from the time they identify their goals through to when we achieve them
At ML Financial Associates we feel the right advice, tailored to our clients’ requirements and supported by an excellent level of client service, are extremely important.

Some of these points include: -
Who We Are
We are a team of Independent Financial Advisers, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, covering the South East of England with offices in Norfolk and Northamptonshire.
Our advisers have over 70 years’ experience in the financial sector, are fully qualified, with Simon Lister and Craig McClurg ranked in the Top 1% of Independent Financial Advisers worldwide*.
We offer the full range of financial services to individuals, couples and businesses including retirement and pension planning, investment portfolios, wealth management, family and corporate protection as well as tax and estate planning and our advice is totally independent and therefore impartial.
Many of our clients have been with our advisers for a number of years and a large proportion of new clients are a direct result of referrals from our large base of well looked after existing clients who promote us to their family, friends and colleagues who they feel may benefit from our services.
Our aim, through a personal and professional approach, is to offer the right advice, tailored to our clients’ requirements and supported by an excellent level of customer service.
HomeVisual is a property photography service offering complete property imagery solutions for your home, business, and more!
Our services include 360° virtual viewings, complete property photography including interior, exterior, 360° stills and drone photography, and floor plan design.
What is a virtual viewing? Our virtual viewings, or virtual property tours, are fully immersive and interactive. They are far more than just a video! Viewers can tours the space at anytime and from anywhere. They have full control of the camera view, meaning viewers can explore a space from every angle in their own time.
Virtual viewings allow you to get your space in front of more viewers, as it allows for multiple viewers at once, as well as reduced footfall, meaning that sellers face less disruption with viewings, and estate agents can save time and money by having to travel to each viewing.
Hotels and holiday rentals can also benefit from a virtual tour, as it allows prospective guests to be able to virtually visit and walkthrough the space, giving them a much more complete view of the entire property, not just a few select photographs.
We do, of course, offer professional photography services. You wouldn’t advertise your business or service as “average quality” nor would you advertise your house as “mediocre”, so we believe that you shouldn’t settle for anything less than stunning imagery, especially when images are the first impression that your buyers and clients will see.
The man behind the lens is Steven Sparkes, a full-time professional photographer based in Drayton, Norfolk. You may know Steven better as Perfect Pose Photography, and aside from property and commercial photography, Steven has an impressive portfolio with experience in weddings, family, events, model portfolios, and more.

Make your event magical!
I’m David, a Norwich-based magician and I perform magic at weddings and events across Norfolk and the rest of the UK.
Sharing meaningful magical experiences gives the event an extra magical sparkle. Entertaining guests throughout the event ensures they remember it for all the right reasons.
I’ve been performing magic all of my life and love to perform in all kinds of venues, from stately homes to theatres and garden parties.
As a Member of The Magic Circle and Equity, with £10 000 000 Public Liability Insurance, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.
“Absolutely excellent close up magic on New Years eve at The Grove Cromer.” Chris Graveling, The Grove, Cromer.
Facebook Review – for more reviews (https://www.facebook.com/DavidFungUK/reviews/)
I’ve lived in Norfolk for almost four years now, but the most wonderful thing is how soon after moving here that it felt like home.
There are so many amazing places to perform at around the county. Together with venues and event organisers, we have shared so many happy memories for myself and everyone attending the events.
Whether you’re planning a wedding, birthday party, holiday event, or something completely different, I’d love to have a chat about magic and entertainment with you.
