What our clients say
I met Phil for the first time in May 2009. I was. I must admit, nervous to say the least at the prospect of discussing financial matters with someone I did not know. Suffice to say I need not have worried as Phil instantly put me at ease. His manner was very professional while sympathetic to my needs. I soon realised that I could ask him anything. He spent a lot of time explaining in detail (in words I could comprehend), products and investments that would suit my needs best.
All subsequent appointments have been followed up with comprehensive documentation. I know he is willing to answer any of my queries on financial matters either over the phone or via email. This amounts to me feeling well supported by someone who cares about me as an individual as well as my investments.
Phil has provided Independent Financial Advice to us for the last three years. During that time we have found him to be honest, trustworthy and reliable.
Phil is easy to get on with and always tries to make our busy lives as easy as possible; often willing to discuss affairs at short notice or even at the weekend.
We would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any of our closest friends or family.
I'm a client of Phil Buttle, Independent Financial Consultant, who I've been dealing with over the last 12 months. I've found Phil to be extremely helpful and supportive over this period as myself and my wife were undergoing a few changes to our financial situation during 2011. Basically, there were my wife cutting down her work commitment from 5 days to 2 days from last September, and I was considering taking voluntary redundancy and in fact took it in December 2011. Also, one daughter getting married last year and another one in 2012 plus other things, so you can guess we're going to face some fundamental changes in our situation, with questions such as could we afford it, and planning short, medium and long term.
Phil offered practical advice as to hot to plan for our financial arrangements going forward. This included a cash flow analysis report to meet our outgoings. He also produced a financial planning report to examine existing arrangements, and work out the best choices and options for our plans. This was undertaken with continuous communication and recommendations with ourselves and agreement at every stage. With an ongoing review service, Phil gives us the confidence that our financial well being is being looked after in a sensible and fair manner which is suitable for our lifestyle and forthcoming plans.
