What our clients say
After my husband died I needed advice on where to invest my savings. We had a detailed discussion about my expectations of what I would be spending on a monthly basis and he advised me to keep a note of the outgoings. We also discussed my level of comfortable risk in the investment. I found the prospect of sorting out where to invest quite daunting and it was reassuring to have the advice. I feel quite confident that Peter was very thorough in his assessment of my financial position.
Mrs M, Essex
My father had always managed his own financial affairs, but in his later years felt he would like to simplify them as much as possible and wanted advice on planning the best way to manage inheritance tax. My father and the rest of the family agreed the changes that Peter suggested before my father's death last year. Those changes and Peters support helped us enormously to manage my mother's financial affairs after his death. She and I feel very comfortable with talking to Peter. He is approachable, trustworthy and always available to talk to. To date we have been very happy with the advice that he has given.
Mr R, Essex
