What our clients say
I found Matt to be very supportive in my financial plans and would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for constructive retirement planning amid the pension minefield :)
Neil Charman, Sandhurst
My wife and I have used Matt to provide pensions planning and investment advice that has worked well, especially in the current volatile market. This has helped us to consolidate our various investment arrangements and commence transition to full retirement earlier than originally planned.
David Brown, Cranbrook
My pension and general finances were in a complete mess after years of neglect and then I was introduced to Matt. His advice has been exceptional and now I have a full understanding of my financial position and what I need to consider going forward. My savings are better invested and making very good returns even taking into account the impact on the markets due to covid.
John Garred, Binfield
I have no hesitation in recommending Mathew as a honest, trustworthy, reliable individual who has guided us financially through difficult times and exceeded our expectations.
Mario Casha, Reading
Since my first engagement with Matt 24 months ago I have received nothing but courteous and professional financial advice. Thoroughly recommended.
Dean Otterway, Bracknell
I have been very happy with Matt. The service is great and always tailored to your needs. The products have been good and I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family, in fact I have!
Ian Hobbs, Wokingham
I have been very happy with the service and advice provided by Mathew. The advice provided considered my overall financial needs and approach to risk. The process was smooth are fairly painless. My multitude of questions and points for clarification were responded to promptly and patiently by Matt who took the time to explain. Thank you. Overall a good experience which I expect, hope will continue over many years.
Paul Howell, Kent
Was introduced to Matt from a family member and have been really pleased with the outcome of the plan we have in place. Really liked how Matt broke down everything in a simple way and we actually came to the conclusion that retirement was possible 2 years earlier than expected. I have already recommended matt to others.
Donald, Earley
Would highly recommend Creative Lifestyle Planning to anybody. Extremely professional from start to finish, Mathew knew exactly what he was on about and I had plenty of time to understand the full implications of the advice.
Carla Gower, Swindon
