Thank you for all the papers and explanations. I am returning, in the post today, your envelope and the signed Aviva documents for your action. I am also aware that Denise has pretty much completed the transfers suggested so we should soon be all shipshape and Bristol fashion. I know she gets nervous about parting with money 😊 but we are happy that she is getting a better organised future. For which my personal thanks. We look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future and in the meantime wish you all the very best

Our services

My key skill is to listen to my clients' needs and objectives and building a solution to meet expectations.

Everybody is different and so they may be wishing to build their investments and pensions using active or lower-cost passive funds.

They may be defensive in investment nature or prefer more risk. They may wish to retire soon and be looking for more certainty and retirement income.
