What our clients say
Approaching retirement I wished advice on my savings, investments and pensions in view of the regulatory changes. He carried out a thorough review of my investments and personal/occupational pensions and took on board my needs and circumstances. I have received a detailed report - the conclusions of which I am in agreement with and are currently being acted on
I have a great respect for Matt and over time i have gained a great relationship that has been able to explain a complex subject in plain english the options and present all options.i only do business with people i like and trust and Matt more than covers both of these and is someone i have and would recommend to anyone.
What could they have done better?
Absolutely nothing. Matt took the time to fit around our busy business and personal life and was both patient and excellent in his execution of documents and options and kept us well informed all through the process.
Matt was recommended to me by a friend. I have always approached seeking the help of a Financial Adviser with trepidation in the past over concerns of how much value they might add for the fees incurred. I can honestly say that once we had agreed on the fees, which were very clearly spelled out, the reduction in tax and ideas discussed have provided me with great confidence with my financial future, and look forward to working with Matt further.
What could they have done better?
I'm not sure Matt could have done better - he confirmed some investments as sound and gave great advice

Matt Taylor took over my financial affairs on a personal basis when I retired from The Spectator magazine in October 2014. I had known Matt in a genera way for some time as he was connected to the company responsible for handling The Spectator staff pensions scheme.. He was invariably happy and willing to explain the options available to me both within the pensions scheme and beyond it. It seemed natural to ask him to take me on as a private client with a brief to maximising investments on my savings and to ensure the provision of a good return in future years from the pensions monies that became available to me.He has done so in an entirely satisfactory manner. I am confident that I am in good hands. I am very happy to recommend his enthusiasm, care and expertise.Paul BentleyLondon W5
