What our clients say
"I have had real problems in the past with people managing my financial affairs. Due to my age I really needed the correct advice for arranging my estate to benefit the right people. My tax liability has been reduced significantly and my investments are performing well. I could recommend the services of Beacon to anybody.
Margaret Harris, Monmouth
"Beacon has provided me with financial advice for all personal and business matters for the last 8 years, the service has been second to none. During this time the team at Beacon IFA have played an integral part in helping me achieve my business goals with sensible investment strategies and tax-planning. The team were also successful in making a large compensation claim on my behalf against a high-street bank when I had been mistreated previously. I really feel they put their customer's interests first." "I have recommended Beacon to many of my friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. I look forward to working with Beacon for many years to come."
Andrew Parsons, London
"My husband and I have been using Beacon since their formation and have been very satisfied with the prompt and valuable advice that we have been given in relation to our investment strategy and the depth of knowledge of available and suitable products. There were some complex Inheritance tax issues that have now been resolved with the use of trusts. The advice has been invaluable and has given us peace of mind as we approach retirement. Our investments are reviewed regularly and have fared well especially given the current market conditions." Deborah Ingfield, Brecon
