What our clients say
Mike Hardy and I got to know each other through my work as a solicitor and over the years, I’ve come to respect his dedication and professionalism. To say that his advice has been life-changing is no exaggeration. As a result of his in-depth knowledge of the complexities of current pension arrangements, I’ve been able to switch from full-time to part-time practice ahead of the state retirement age. I now have the time to pursue my many other ambitions. I can genuinely recommend Mike’s clear, considered guidance, without reservation.
I contacted Mike over a year ago when I was looking to maximise my
returns from my pension investment (previously with Standard Life).
Mike offered me advice, initially by email and phone, then suggested
that we meet up so that he would take me through what Abacus Advice
could offer me. That advice was given in a friendly, professional and
straightforward way which allowed me to understand my options. It was
clear that Mike was an expert in his field; he assessed my attitude to
risk and developed a portfolio that suited my individual situation and
retirement plans. Mike didn't charge for the consultation and made his
fees clear so that I entered into the agreement with a clear
understanding of future costs. I was assured that it's in both our
interests to maximise my returns. Mike keeps in regular touch with me
and continues to make sure that my portfolio is reviewed and adjusted
as my needs change.
I am very happy with the service that Mike and Abacus Advice provide
and I would recommend that you give him a call if you are looking for
similar financial advice.
