Meet our advisers
Martin Robert Jinks DipPFS
What our clients say
Martin is very approachable and easy to talk to. He understands the level of risk I am prepared to take and doesn't try to talk me into higher risk investments although he has explained the possible advantages of doing this. I have a review every year and he is happy to answer questions, advise etc in between times if I call him - even on matters not directly related to my investments. I have had a good return on my investments thanks to his advice.
Elisabeth, North Yorkshire
In 2012 when I retired I was recommended to contact Martin to help me deal with my pension and personal finances. I am so pleased I did. Martin is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. He took time to thoroughly explain the choices I had without any,`sales pressure`. We then set up a portfolio which I am very happy with for I feel it meets my personal requirements at the present time and it is being continually reviewed by Martin. He clearly described all the charges involved and for me his expertise is good value for money. I find Martin competent, very trustworthy and have felt confident to recommend him as a Financial Adviser to others.
Chris, Cleveland
Martin has been my financial adviser for many years. He has a very pleasant manner and explains things thoroughly, nothing is too much trouble. He has guided me through retirement and clearly advised me on necessary investments, the results of which I am very pleased with. He listens carefully to your needs and offers advice accordingly, which is particularly good if you need lots of support, like me. He has always been at the end of a phone to answer questions and give reassurance. I would highly recommend Martin, he is an excellent adviser.
Christine, Middlesex
Martin provides a considered and structured plan for our retirement investments taking our attitude to risk, which is a low since we are both now state pensioners, fully into consideration. He communicates his ideas and explains the reasoning behind them very clearly. He has, on occasion, willingly researched and recommended products in areas which are not strictly covered by our agreement with him. Ultimately the bottom line is that with his guidance and expertise our investments and savings are far healthier than if left to our own care.
Stewart, Cleveland
Martin is both extremely professional and supportive. His great strength is his ability to listen, not just to your financial needs but by taking time to get to know you as a person he gives really constructive advice. He has helped me and is now helping my husband through retirement planning, a task which is quite daunting after a lifetime of teaching. His kindness and humour makes the whole process an easy one. He is very thorough in his advice, explaining complex investment language in simple terms. He gives you time to consider what you want to do, never rushing you to make decisions. We would unreservedly recommend Martin to you as we have already done to friends and colleagues.
Gwen, Cleveland
I found Martin to be helpful and I felt confident that the advice he was giving me was correct. Martin gave me advice linked to savings, life insurances and a will. Martin was very thorough in his explanations and gave very professional advice. I would definitely recommend him.
Lynsey, Cleveland
Martin understood our requirements extremely well and provided a good solution. He reviews our situation and tailors our investments twice a year and if, as has been the case, we require something being done in between it was done.
Dave, Cleveland
There was a friendly and helpful meeting where Martin went over the details of what would need to be considered for our pension rights and how the calculations would be estimated. The information he provided was accurate almost to the penny and gave us a sense of security in making probably one of the most important decisions or our working lives. We were more than satisfied with his advice and put into action a decision that we have not looked back over. Martin was professional at all times and did not pressure us in any way. Advice was totally impartial and exceedingly accurate.
