What our clients say
As a freelance photographer, finances in life can be precarious. Never able or inclined to delve into the world of stock markets or areas other than the standard offer from banks and building societies.
I was recommended to Annett's and Orchard, who around 2004 started to advise me and handle any monies that I had available. We are not talking about vast sums, so don't be put off.
Their/his professional but friendly way of doing business has kept me on a very happy footing since and never once have I felt badly advised - not the case with some friends of mine.
Always with their client in mind my portfolio of funds has grown at a rate far higher than any individual could hope for.
Retirement with a solid financial background is an area I could only have dreamt of. I would have no hesitation in recommending Annett's and Orchard, the sooner you start the better life will be.
I have been with Annetts and Orchard since 2008: I needed mortgage advice, and they were recommended to me by a trusted colleague. As my personal circumstances developed and my financial needs have changed over the years, Annetts & Orchard have advised me on a range of pension and investment issues, and I feel I now have a solid financial plan in place. What I value in the approach taken by Annetts & Orchard is how they take the time to understand my needs and explore different solutions with me - I feel in control of my financial future but with the support and guidance of experts.
Annetts and Orchard have provided excellent financial advice and support to my 97 year old aunt for some time.
However as she has become more elderly it has been more difficult for her to manage her own affairs and we, her family, all live some distance away, so it has been hard for us to support and help her.
Recently my aunt moved into a care home and her own home was sold, resulting in a substantial amount of money that needed to be invested and safeguarded, in order to meet her needs and her future care home bills.
Our adviser visited my aunt in her new home on more than one occasion, liaised with my sister and I and suggested various investment options.
He was incredibly patient and courteous, taking time and care to explain all the options to my aunt and to ourselves and was completely professional throughout.
He responded promptly to us at all times but enabled my aunt to take time to reflect and consider her choices, to ensure that she was happy with her final decisions. By providing sound financial help and making the investments on our behalf it freed us from the worry and burden of decision making.
I can therefore thoroughly recommend Annetts and Orchard, as I have seen for myself the excellent service they have provided to my aunt over a number of years.
I first met the team at Annetts & Orchard through recommendation from my sister. My husband had just died aged 50 and I required a sympathetic and professional approach, I couldn't have asked for a better person.
He was knowledgeable, efficient and kind in his manner which really helped me in such a difficult time.
We discussed my options regarding providing me with a regular set amount to live on and what level of investments would be best for me.
Without a doubt he helped reassure me and reduced my stress.
Since 2011 they have always been attentive and willing to discuss any concerns I may have.
The investment choices have done well for me.
I would highly recommend Annetts & Orchard to anyone requiring financial advice.
