Dale Smith MIFS DipFA
Independent Financial Adviser
What our clients say
“Almost twenty years ago, we decided to get some expert advice from a Financial Adviser, not knowing anyone we picked Financial Services out of the directory, we have never regretted it for one moment. From the onset, Dale Smith was friendly and knowledgeable, he gave us very good advice on investments. Also because of the work he did on our behalf regarding a Guarantee through a mis-sold insurance he more than doubled Phil’s (my husband’s) Pension fund. Subsequently, directly because of Dale, Phil took early retirement in 2007 on his 54th birthday! Dale always comes to see us once a year and looks through our investments as he always done.”
Margaret & Phil Loxley, Derbyshire
“Over the years, I have been able to depend on Dale, not only to point me in the right direction, but also to save me money. Any initial skepticism I had quickly disappeared. Nothing is too much trouble. If you’re looking for friendly, financial advice, look no further.”
Ann Atterbury, Derbyshire
“I have known Dale for a period of eight years now. Initially, it was through my previous employer, as a financial adviser to all employees of the Company. I now see Dale on an individual basis, as I know I can trust him to offer good sound advice regarding my investments and pension. Dale is friendly and offers a ‘down to earth’ approach when it comes to explaining the minefield of information regarding pensions and investments. He is very knowledgeable about the products available and listens to what the customer wants and offers advice accordingly. There is no pressure to go with a certain investment company, unlike some other advisers I have dealt with in the past. I can understand why some people are sceptical about financial advisors, but dealing with Dale over the years, I can see that he is good value for money. He has helped me to make the best of my investments and steered me in the right direction with my pension. I now appreciate the long-term benefit of working with an adviser and would recommend Dale to anyone wanting sound financial advice.”
Elaine England, Derbyshire
“Dale has been our adviser for years & we would not want anyone else, we can't fault the advice we get from him. He is very, very good. “ P & ML, Chesterfield
P&M Loxley, Chesterfield
“Dale has always provided me with a first class service and I have recommended him to many friends. He is always approachable and has done a superb job for me over the years...” JH, Belper
J Hodgkinson, Belper, Derbyshire
"You have done a fantastic job helping me with my pension arrangements over the last 8 years. I cannot thank you enough."
Mr K Atkinson, Heage, Derbyshire
