What our clients say
EXCELLENT & PROFESSIONAL SERVICE - 5 STARS Advanced IFA have managed my financial affairs for 12 years and I couldn`t be happier with their professionalism and advice. A couple of years ago, I decided start withdrawing income from my private pension. Andrew worked with me on a full financial analysis of my requirements then explained the various options I had for ensuring I had the right solution. Superb! Testimonial is on <url hidden>
MR Coombs, Matrix Technology Limited
Following very good advice our lives were made so much more comfortable following successful claims on an income protection policy when I had an accident after falling off my motorbike and later a successful claim on a critical illness policy. We could not be happier with the service we have had from our financial advisers.
Mr & Mrs Lund, Sunderland
I have been dealing with David and his team at Advanced IFA for over 10 years and I have recommended them to many other Friends and family.
Minchella Family, Cleadon Village
Over the past 15 years Advanced IFA has advised me, provided guidance for me and organised matters such as my remortgage and also setting up my private pension needed when changing profession. The team have up to date knowledge and many years of experience, and deliver to a high standard every time. Often I think people feel scared of engaging with a financial adviser thinking that it's going to cost them a fortune. The first appointment with Advanced IFA is free and from then on you are in the driving seat with regards to what happens next. No pressure to take any products. Only friendly and professional advice. Highly recommend. Testimonial is on <url hidden> to view

Mr C Gardner, Sunderland
Myself & my boyfriend used Brian the mortgage advisor at Advanced IFA. As first time buyers we went in a little clueless but Brian talked us through the process very thoroughly and was very great throughout. He successfully found us a mortgage provider and took care of a lot of the admin work meaning we didn’t have to worry about it. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent Relaxed Team Advanced IFA have helped me on numerous occasions. I often recommend friends and family to them.

I am really happy with the relaxed friendly process they explained all my options. 5* you guys are mint. Testimonial on <url hidden>
MarkFinch-783, Fulwell, Sunderland
EXCELLENT SERVICE FROM THE BEST IN THE FIELD! I wanted to see a financial adviser for years put it off for many reasons. The main one being fear at confronting my financial affairs, even though I knew I had nothing to worry about. I should not have put it off and I couldn't be happier with the help and friendly welcome that always awaits at Advanced IFA. Nowadays, instead of fear I actually look forward to appointments. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Advanced IFA to any friends and family. Testimonial on <url hidden>

Mark Henderson, Whitburn
We contacted Advanced IFA to discuss transferring our pension. We have to say the whole process from the initial meeting to completion was handled first class. A pity we couldn’t say that about our original pension company. Overall a great service thanks to David and his team.
Jan Watters, Cleadon Village
I contacted David to arrange an appointment with one of his advisers to discuss retirement planning. I am very happy to say the whole process was easy to understand and my partner is now in the process of setting up a pension with Advanced. Check more out on <url hidden>
