What our clients say
I could tell by dealing with Dominic the first time, how profesional he was,he had all the information I required within a couple of days,all set out in format I could easily understand. with all charges explained in full. In the past I had always invested with my bank, they were very good, but Dominic was not limited to a particular company and offered very good advice which has been proved exellent advice over the past couple of days, I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of a problem I had been in contact with him about, and will be in contact with him soon about my other invesments.
Glennys, Lancashire
For the non-professional, particularly in the current financial climate, financial planning is a daunting prospect. From the very outset Dominic impressed with his knowledge, sincerity and friendly approach putting myself and my Wife at ease from our first meeting. In a field where an individual could easily be overawed by the choices available or overwhelmed with paperwork, legal-speak and small print Dominic took the time to uncover what our financial goals were, what investments and risks we would be comfortable with and what options were open to us. We experienced no hard-sell techniques, everything was explained in detail both verbally and backed up in writing, he has always makes us feel valued and that he has our best interests at heart. We are confident that Dominic's expertise, professionalism and overall enthusiasm for the service he provides will ensure our financial good health and we look forward with optimism to our later years knowing that our finances are in good hands. We cannot praise Dominic highly enough and consider ourselves fortunate to have found such a person to look after us, we have no hesitation recommending him to others.
Mr John Worthington, Lancashire
At first extremely skeptical of the 'Financial Advisor' industry due to previous poor history. Dominic understood my situation and despite being skeptical for a number of years he gained my confidence.Above all he talks to you face to face in a language you can understand.I am extremely pleased with the way Dominic Mcloughney has handled my financial affairs and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for financial planning.
