With care and considered advice based on his experience. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? I feel much more confident that I will be financially secure thanks to Adam’s help.

Peter Grace, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? I was looking for advice on a number of old pension schemes. How did Adam McCarthy help you? Adam reviewed all my pension documentation and discussed my financial situation and plans for the future. He then provided advice on my options. He has extensive knowledge of various aspects of the financial markets. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? For me it is very early days, however, the early signs are very encouraging. What could they have done better? I couldn't ask for anymore.

Gareth Jones, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? My wife and I decided to move back to the UK after living in Cyprus for 10 years. Due to our advanced ages we presumed we would not be able to get a mortgage. How did Adam McCarthy help you? Adam reviewed our finances and suggested that we would be able to get a short term mortgage. Within 2 hours he told us that he had 4 lenders waiting to help us. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes we have now been living in our new home for almost 4 years and in 8 years time we will have paid the mortgage off. What could they have done better? Not being a financial wizard i cannot think of anything that would have allowed Adam to have improved his service.

Got fed up of not being able to speak to someone in person at the bank it was all phone calls and making appointments which were always weeks away, wanted someone to talk to and have advice from in person, on the telephone and via e mail. How did Adam McCarthy help you? Adam sorted out our mortgage, and pensions which were in different places, saved us money on our life insurances told us what we needed to be paying out for in life cover etc and what we didn’t we were paying so much out on advice from the bank, what we saved we were able to take out a personal pension Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes we have seen the outcome we were hoping for could be better but given the current climate we are in a better position than we were What could they have done better? Adam came to us recommend by a friend we couldn’t have found a nicer or more knowledgeable financial adviser.
