What our clients say
I was looking to combine a personal pension and work related pension into one 'pot' when starting up my own business several years ago. Colin provided a wealth of knowledge on the options available to me and pros and cons of all possibilities. It can seem a little overwhelming for a non-financial person, but Colin provided (and continues to provide) an excellent service complete with detailed annual (face to face) reviews. Investing for the long term needs to be borne in mind but outcomes are as hoped for thus far.
Mr Perkin, South East Warwickshire
I was looking for advice on funds that could be used towards extra income in my forth coming retirement. Colin listened to what I wanted to achieve in retirement, gave advice and suggestions on how to maximise the funds available. Colin's advice on suggested income types and drawdowns was absolutely spot on. The monthly and quarterly incomes that were arranged with the funds available really do top up my other income and allow my wife and I to Holiday 4 or 5 times a year in warmer climates. To be honest I have not had to think "that could have been done better", as Colin answered all questions and queries that were thrown at him.
Mr Hodgess, Leicester
Colin helped us to find the best deal on a mortgage, building and contents insurance and plan joint cover for life critical illness and income protection. Colin also helped us budget and merged two households into one financially. We got great rates on everything and his advice was impartial and in our best interest which I don’t think we would find if we took mortgage advice from an estate agent or lender. We don’t think we could have had a better experience. Colin is clearly very dedicated to genuinely helping people. We felt our best interests were kept as a priority right the way through. Thank you Colin
Miss Grove, North Warwickshire
I originally approached Colin because I needed help and advice for a pension sharing order as part of my divorce financial settlement. It was a difficult and stressful time for me, and Colin gave me information with great patience and understanding. One thing I really liked was his patience and kindness as well as his perseverance in ensuring a positive outcome. He kept me informed at every point and made every effort to reassure and allay any fears or worries. The process of transferring the pension into my account has just been completed successfully. I now look forward to a more secure and stable financial future. Thank you Colin
