What our clients say
I needed help with my pension, to access my tax free cash. My pension company (Aviva) would not help and told me to find an IFA. I found Gavin on the internet as he was local, he helped explain the best way of arranging my pensions and savings. It was nice to find someone local who would come out and see me. Really happy with the service.
Clive, Shropshire
Really happy, I wanted someone to review my ISAs and shares as I had had no service or advice for years. Gavin sorted out my portfolio, lowered the charges and now reviews these regularly.
Joanne, Shropshire
Gavin was brilliant, I had a few pensions that had not been reviewed for a long while, he explained how they worked and put a plan together to get these moving again. Nice guy and easy to talk to, I would definitely recommend him
Darren Jones, Shropshire
With early retirement looming I wanted assurance that my pension pot would be able to support my wife and I for our retirement. Gavin came to visit us for a preliminary (free) discussion. We were impressed by his knowledge and his easy to understand explanations of the options available. He was very easy to talk to and he certainly eased our worries about the future. There was no pressure to book further appointments. He left us to consider the options and think things over and contact him only if we wished for further advice and guidance. We would not hesitate to recommend him and will most likely use his services the future.
Barrie Le Maistre, Staffordshire
I had a ISA and pension in drawdown that was not invested correctly and had very high charges. Gavin had a look at the plans at his own cost initially and had sorted these out so they match my risk profile and have a chance of paying sustainable income now. The charges are also fractionally lower. Really happy and would feel comfortable recommending him to others.
Terry, Telford
Gavin came to see us, explained things simply and left us to make our own decision. We called him back when we were ready to go ahead, he did not pressure us to go ahead. We did not use another adviser because we felt pressured.
Lynda Lawton, Staffordshire
My pension portfolio is managed by Chartered Independent, Gavin reviews this portfolio and makes the necessary changes. Happy with the service so far.
Jordan Matthews, Stoke-on-Trent
Gavin is a well informed advisor, who obviously wants to keep up to date with financial issues so he can best inform his clients. We found him to be a very personable man, who had our best interests at heart. We liked the fact that he is chartered, so has spent some time studying for his profession. His knowledge was second to none and his advice was clearly explained.
Mags, Shropshire
My portfolio is managed by Chartered Independent, this is reviewed every three months on the phone and face to face each year. We like the fact we never have to chase to book in appointments, very good.
