We joined an elite list of 74 Accredited Firms which have demonstrated their professionalism by meeting the highest standards of excellence in Financial Planning.
We were inspired by the name Juno for many reasons, not least because:
- Juno was a Roman goddess and the Temple of Juno Moneta was an ancient Roman temple, originally situated in the centre of Rome. It was here that Roman coins were first minted.
- The Peacock is a beautiful bird, associated with Roman mythology and particularly with Juno. It is a bird that symbolises integrity, honesty and trust.
- As a team we felt that Juno, with the Peacock as our brand symbol resonated with our values, our ethos and the services we provide to our clients.
Juno and the peacock symbol, we believe are an appropriate choice for a company that is responsible for advising clients on how best to manage and improve the money in their lives. We work ethically, responsibly and are completely transparent with all our clients and the way we work and live our lives is underpinned by our core values.
