What our clients say
Excellent and prompt service, highly knowledgeable staff and very clear and precise advice, which has allowed me to gain a more in-depth understanding of my private pension. I was very happy with the customer service provided, all my questions were answered in a clear and simple manner. Id also recommend speaking to Kay as he is exceptionally professional and patient.
Anonymous, Brighton
I dealt with several advisors before meeting and settling on Kay. Kay is smart and professional, and he understands the client's needs without the unnecessary need for pushy sales techniques, which I have often found with other advisors.
L M, Bromley
Excellent service from really helpful friendly staff, And was very happy with the end result.
John Paul Jones, London
Excellent professional and extremely helpful information simplified clearly many thanks to Kay and Matt
J Burns, Ireland
Very pleased with the Family Income Benefit policy we have just taken out. No lengthy paperwork to fill in - all done for us over the phone. The assistant was friendly and efficient. Our policy was live within minutes and documents received via email. Thank you"
Tony Warren, Worthing
We have been exceptionally pleased with the way our policy application has been handled. All details were given in a detailed and concise manner and the communication throughout the process could not have been better. This to me is proof of a professional approach to the new client who could become a continuing customer as lifetime situations change.I have continually been disappointed with a lack of communication from other companies at a time when there are so many ways of keeping a client up to date with events and this shows a lack of forward thinking. More than happy with the outcome, couldn't be more pleased.
Andrea and Ben HB, London

Anonymous, Brighton
For someone who knows very little about pensions and finance insurance speaking to Black Lion has been invaluable. They explained everything simply so I could understand and was very patient with me when I had questions and needed time to think and explore other options. We set up my pension and created a financial plan to help me reach my retirement goal. They also helped with mine and my families insurances and did lots of research to ensure I had the best plans for my circumstances with the best price. Would definitely recommend thanks a lot!!

The value of pensions and investments and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.

Transferring out of a Final Salary scheme is unlikely to be in the best interests of most people.

Final Salary Pension transfers advice is referred to our Partner Firm [PRG Independent Limited].
