What our clients say
I've never been someone who has taken much interest in financial investments, so when I inherited some money I wanted to make sure my inheritance would benefit me for the future. I researched high and low into financial advisors and came into contact with Simon Bailey. His services have been impeccable and has guided and directed my portfolio with healthy investments. He is always at the end of a phone if I need advice and continues to be scrupulous with financial advice. Highly recommend his services.
As a company director at international level for over 40 years, I found that most of my time was spent working and I failed to address many of my own personal issues., such as pensions.
Fortunately, I was recommended Mr. Simon Bailey. My first reaction to meeting him was:-
# Very professional. He explained his Industry Code etc.
# He identified my issues and concerns, without making me feel 'stupid'.
# He explained all the fees involved. (This I thought was great – not misleading)
# He made it all sound simple. (which I know it was not)
Following on from the above he analysed all my paperwork and sent me a detailed explanation.
To me this was fantastic. At last I had all the details. He then went on to sort out a pension and obtain a lump sum payment. Sure he offered various choices.
Overall, I can honestly say that Mr. Simon Bailey gave me a first class service and I can recommend him to anyone who has a financial or pension issue. Whatever your concern you must discuss it with Mr. Bailey. Anyone in doubt can e mail me on
