What our clients say
My previous advisor was not providing any satisfactory service and Brierie came very highly recommended. He helped by looking at my situation and was very helpful and in pointing me in the direction that was best suited for me. Honestly, I could not find fault him, he was very honest and professional with his understanding of my situation.
Planning finances for retirement and looking for advice regarding pensions and investments.
Martin provided a personalised plan to demonstrate a financial forecast to take us through retirement
to end of life based on our anticipated lifestyle in the future. Against this he provided advice on pensions, investment and other planned and predicted financial events.
We transferred our business to Brieire Financial Planning as I have known Martin and Laura for several years and completely trust them to look after my financial position moving forward. In my opinion the advice offered was honest and realistic and I felt there was absolutely no pressure to do anything I was not happy with.
I am confident that i have made the right choice moving my business over to Martin
and that things will go well in the future.
I was completely satisfied with the professional and courteous service offered.
Due to a sudden illness I was acutely aware that I needed to review my pension arrangements.
Having known Martin for a number of years in both a personal and professional capacity, I was fully
aware of Martin's knowledge, professionalism, integrity and manner.
Martin took the time to fully
explore and address all of my pension needs in a way that has helped me enormously and which I'm
more than delighted with.
Martin's advice and service was second to none
We were unsure of the value of our saving and pensions plans and wanted some expert guidance on the way forward for our family.
Martin and Laura were truly exceptional . The innovation of their service and the personal contact really made us feel that they were with us every step of the way to make my family secure . And every time he came Martin brought chocolate biscuits ...he had us from day one then !.
We feel empowered to live our lives now without fear of the future and the valuable information we now have at our fingers let's us plan and react how we want and not blindly .
I was impressed by Martins honesty and patience and also his recommendations that we do not do some things we wanted to do even though it would hemave benefitted people he works with . That level of integrity you cannot buy and comes from inside ...we believe Martin and Laura have the same moral background as us and that's important to us.
On Martin's visit we found him to be a very professional young man and taking to explain things to us in a very relaxing manner.
I'm planning retirement in the next few years and wanted reassurance that everything was in order and I am aware of any pitfalls.
Martin produced a detailed financial plan and projection based on income and expenditure. This included projections of pension income and sources of funding.
The results of the review provided me with the reassurance I sought. In addition, Martin identified a couple of areas to review and investigate further. This proved very helpful.
I was introduced to Martin approx. 7 years whilst he was working in the local branch of my bank as a Financial Advisor and have always found him very helpful in providing financial advice and planning. He is a friendly type of person, extremely approachable and always makes time just to have a general chat before commencing with the business conversation.
I lost contact with Martin for a while, however, since becoming an independent Financial Advisor, Martin made contact and at just at the right time, as both my husband and I felt in need of financial guidance and support having reached that stage in our lives.
At our first meeting Martin listened to our concerns and understood our situation and gave very good recommendations to meet our needs. He explained everything in a manner that we understood and informed us he will have an annual meeting to update our portfolio, as well as him contacting us by phone or email throughout the year, however, I can contact him at any time with whatever question I may wish to ask, which is very re-assuring. We have the utmost confidence in Martin and trust him in dealing with our financial needs which he has based on our personal situation and attitude to financial risks and goals.
We feel a lot happier having appointed Martin as our FA and know he will make the right decisions to ensure growth of funds on our behalf. We would recommend Martin to any of our friends who are seeking financial advice.
Martin has provided me with sound financial advice over a long period. His advice is valued and has ensured that my financial investments are tailored to meet my requirements. He regularly reviews my investment portfolio to ensure they continue to perform as required, and where circumstances have changed the appropriate action has been taken to ensure they continue to meet my long term investment plans. Martin is enthusiastic and has demonstrated his high level of understanding of the financial markets.
Remortgaging and changes in family circumstances meant our policies were inadequate. I contacted Martin after a recommendation. We required new Life insurance policies due to remortgaging and having two young boys. I was concerned about the level of cover we had and i needed some expert advice regarding this. I could not have contacted a more professional and caring gentleman. Being a family man himself he was able to identify with my needs. Martin was able to examine our existing policies and point out in simple terms what cover they offered and more importantly the level of cover that they did not offer. After a very relaxed and professional consultation Martin started researching new policies which would give the level of cover our family required. After a short period Martin found a policy which not only matched our requirements but also was within the budget we had set. We have now concluded these policies and feel that we made an excellent decision in using Martin as our financial advisor. Currently we have cancelled our outdated and inadequate policies. We have replaced these with the very comprehensive new policies researched by Martin. Doing this process with Martin has given us the reassurance we required and even exceeded our expectations
Martin easily grasped my needs and goals about my Pension pot query and was a joy to talk to.
Martin could not have done anything better. He was extremely down to earth and free with all of his advice. Extremely pleasant to deal with. I never usually recommend people but I have no hesitation in recommending Martin.
Martin has been really helpful with advising us of the best way forward with our investments.
He explained everything in detail and made sure we understood everything he was telling us .
Martin made very simple the steps for resolving confusing pension issues.
Martin carried out a full assessment of my needs to allow me to plan for the future. Martin has made the process straight forward and easy to understand.
I was seeking advice about how best to invest my expendable income to maximise its growth and Martin conducted a very detailed review of my families finances. This included details of my income, my wife's income and all household expenditure. This took a little effort to complete but I felt this was necessary and worthwhile to allow Martin to make informed choices about my investment strategy. We met on 3 occasions to allow Martin to find out my investment goals and therefore match his products to my needs. Martin is very clear about the immediate and ongoing fees for his service.
Martin has an easy manor when explaining what we need to do to move forward with our investments. Every decision made is put in simple terms as not to confuse , which gives us confidence in what we are doing. Martin is a pleasant and knowledgeable young man who has the enthusiasm and drive to make a success of everything he does

Martin was recommended to us as the person to help with an ongoing pension problem we had. With the minimum of fuss, Martins efficient actions quickly brought about an effective resolution with a far better outcome than we could have imagined possible. Integrity, expert and very pleasant to work with we are now recommending Martin Joyce to friends & Relatives. Ian & Eva.
martin explained everything so you understood every aspect of where pensions went
Although I've only had one appointment with Mr Joyce I was impressed with the service and concise information I was given. He clarified my financial situation and made useful suggestions regarding managing my income on a monthly basis. He did not try to sell any services not relevant to me. I will be happy to use Mr Joyce in the future and would recommend his services.
Martin took the time to listen and understand my financial needs and explained everything thoroughly! He is efficient in his work and I highly trust and value his financial advice
Martin has provided me with sound financial advice with integrity over the years. He is very trustworthy and approachable and fully understands my financial planning needs.
past experience is very positive and I have continued to take Martin's advice into the future, clear and concise advice and overall happy
Having used Martin for several years since he was with TSB, I was happy for him to continue as my IFA
I purchased a property and wanted my family to have a secure future. Martin listened to all my needs and explained all the options to me that made it really easy for me to decide the policy I needed. I don't think I would have came close to getting a policy as good as the one I chose if I would have tried to do so on my own.
I had concerns regarding a 'gap' in my family's life insurance arrangements. Martin was very thorough, patient and knowledgeable - happy to walk through details of the options available, and most importantly was able to tune into our family's specific needs. We felt very comfortable making decisions based on Martin's recommendations and advice, and believe we are now in a much more financially secure position. Yes, very pleased with the advice and recommendations provided and feel we have closed the 'gap' in our life insurance requirements.
My husband and I both agree that Mr Joyce has been so helpful in dealing with our finances especially in latter years when investments have become so important to us. Neither of us has a business background and, therefore, Mr Joyce's very clear explanations of all advice given to us has been invaluable. We have a fairly cautious view of investments and he seems to understand this and advises accordingly. All advice given has proved to be extremely beneficial and so as pensioners we are very comfortably placed to face the future, I am sure, all due to very wise advice from Mr Joyce. We trust his integrity totally. He is so approachable if we do have any concerns. He is well-mannered and courteous and this is very much appreciated by us. and we always look forward to his regular visits to up-date us.
Martin is a clear, unambiguous comunicator who is able to explain in non technical client friendly language the basis of his portfolio recommendations. Martin clearly listened and understood my financial aspirations and boundaries, producing thoroughly researched proposals for an investments and savings portfolio. Martin's work ethic and integrity command respect and provide a sound basis for confidence in his investments and savings advice.
