What our clients say
When using the services of an Independent Adviser in a heavily regulated market like financial services, you expect a good range of products, a good knowledge of the marketplace and sound, professional advice as a minimum. With Choice, you get all of these things, but what sets them apart is the attention they pay to your needs, along with the friendliness, flexibility and responsiveness of the service they provide. For these reasons, I would not hesitate to recommend Choice to anyone who requires the highest standards of advice and service.
Mr P, Southampton
We have recently seen John from Choice Financial Solutions as we wanted some advice regarding our pension planning. We found him to be very knowledgeable, and he provided us with excellent advice. We had seen other advisers before, but always felt a little intimidated, and never fully understood all the details. John was thorough and professional, but also very approachable. He took as much time as we needed to ensure we fully understood everything, and nothing was too much trouble. We have already recommended several friends to John, and they have all found him to be as good as we have.
Mr & Mrs W, Southampton
We have always been listened to and our wishes met. Our investments are long term and give reliable performance.
Alan E, Southampton
A very professional and helpful service. Extremely responsive and excellent at keeping us up to date. There is no pressure when discussing the various investment options and definitely customer focussed.
Bruce M, Brockenhurst
Reliable, prompt and trustworthy.
Jeremy G, Brighton
First class service from John Quaif. Proactive, responsive and professional at all times.
Eric W, Tunbridge Wells
Outstanding service and great attention to detail has left me feeling very confident and secure in relation to my financial planning. Highly recommended.
Brian W, Surrey
15 years of excellent service and counting.
Jim B, Chandler’s Ford
Excellent service from John Quaif and the team. I would not hesitate to recommend.
Julie G, Isle of Wight
About us

Our team of experienced Independent Financial Advisers provide truly independent Financial Planning advice. We are based in Southampton and have clients across the south of England.

We are an appointed representative of a company directly authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority, so you know you are in safe hands.

Choice was established in 2004 by our Director, John Quaif. The Choice brand was built around the key values of ‘honesty’ and ‘trustworthiness’. Moreover, and above all else, John expects Choice to deliver high levels of ‘service’ and ‘professionalism’ at all times. These attributes have been the key ingredients used to establish long term client relationships. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the majority of our business is introduced by personal recommendations.

Our services

Our advisers specialise in retirement and investment planning. We care for our client’s needs. That is why we will take time to get to know you as we put together your financial recommendations. Additionally, we will look to build and maintain this relationship over the coming years. This will be done through regular reviews, refining your financial plan if your circumstances change and ensuring your finances remain on track.
