Vincent Brown
What our clients say
The plan was to provide me with retirement income which would be adequate to my needs without eroding the capital. The outcome far exceeded my expectations insofar as I was able to retire with an annual income which was equivalent to my income when I was earning. The capital has continue to grow and there is scope for me to increase the income further if and when necessary. Needless to say I was (and continue to be) delighted with this!
David, Northamptonshire
Very pleased with the outcomes of my investment portfolio. Without Vincent's advice, I would not have achieved anything like the returns that have now accrued.
Michael, Stroud
Vincent was my advisor for many years and provided an excellent service with good results. He was always available to deal with any queries either by phone or email and at regular review and planning meetings. Vincent took the time to really understand my wants and needs from my financial planning and his ability to clarify quite complex financial matters enabled me to make appropriate decisions in a timely manner. He was always happy to repeat or restate issues until I fully understood them and gave constant reassurance that my financial future was positive by explaining why this was so. His range of knowledge in financial services is vast and his work thorough and this with his empathy and understanding makes for a winning combination.
Richard, Leighton Buzzard
Vincent was my financial adviser for many years and I could not have asked for better or more professional service. If he wasn’t available immediately, there was always a prompt call back. He was always available to deal with queries by phone or email. We met on a regular basis to review my current situation and to discuss future planning. He was able to clearly explain financial matters in easily understandable language. He provided positive assurance re my financial situation and took the time to outline the foundation as to why it was. His range of knowledge and financial advice was very wide and his work very thorough. Vincent provided a first-class service and is a pleasure to do business with.
Gail, Leighton Buzzard
After a divorce and parental inheritance Vincent helped me plan for the future at a very stressful time. His advice was clear and his diligence was top notch. At a time of great stress Vincent felt like a sensible financial rock... he went beyond the call... to expedite a pension share transfer that had been badly handled by a court and brought the parties together to make it all happen smoothly.
Alistair, Bristol
I had two pensions from previous employment that I wanted to amalgamate and add to, together with some inheritance left for my son which I wanted to invest on his behalf. I was quite apprehensive about using a Financial Adviser and didn't have a lot of knowledge regarding the choices available. Vincent was very patient and explained all the options available to me in a way that was really easy for me to understand and make the right choice. He also took the time to make sure he completely understood my personal situation, attitude to risk etc and at no time did I feel pressurised to do anything. I always felt I had sufficient time to think things through and discuss further.
Karen, Stroud
Vincent visited us on a number of occasions to discuss our requirements and options, giving plenty of opportunity to consider a number of alternative scenarios detailing the benefits and drawbacks of each. In our experience Vincent has been a great adviser. He researched the possibilities for us in depth and nothing was too much trouble. Great service!
Nicki and Neil, Stroud
Vincent listened carefully to our needs with astute questioning, made recommendations and we have seen good growth in our fund since then. I have had dealings with a number of financial advisers in the past and have always wondered if the recommendations given suited myself or the adviser. I have had the experience of being 'sold to'. Not so with Vincent: he gave us the experience of being supported and guided to a better outcome.
Geoff and Amaragita, Stroud
Vincent demystified and simplified the whole process of reviewing and finding the best pension that matched my ethics and personal situation. He found a plan which is performing so much better than my previous one and which also contributes towards making a more sustainable world, a cause which I'm passionate about. He is patient and didn't mind explaining the process umpteen times until he was confident I understood. We also had a good laugh along the way!
Caroline, Stroud
Vincent Brown gave us very sound advice regarding our investments. This, in turn, helped us to plan our retirement and as a consequence retired 3 years earlier than we expected.
