What our clients say
Now that my pension plan is operational I wanted to thank you for all your efforts over the past years to reach this position. Over this period the effects of pension reforms brought both flexibility and changes to our original course. Although this meant a wider choice of options there was a chance of possible confusion for myself. That you were able to patiently explain all the available possibilities thoroughly and in clear terms for the layman, was most appreciated. You always explored all of the market schemes and only advised the direction to take when I was of the same mind. After being resigned to the prospect of meagre income after many years of work, at least I feel the chosen plan gives some prospect of my finances enabling living reasonably rather than just surviving. Many thanks for your excellent service and advice, I would gladly recommend your company.
Mr Wilson, Hyde, Cheshire
I had my first meeting with David Bunyan of DMFS when I was looking for a new IFA, 8 years ago. David Bunyan had been recommended to me at that time. Having already had investments from advice reviewed from a previous IFA, David still carried out a full appraisal of all my finances and views on risks and future investments. He did not see the need to make wholesale changes. Subsequently, I was impressed by his recommended options for further investment. I am extremely pleased to report that this has resulted in the investments, in a varied portfolio, increasing substantially over time, far more than I was expecting. He has always qualified his advice with the caution that certain types of investment are for the long term. As a retired accountant, I would recommend DMFS on the basis of his continued education in IFA and his ability to use that knowledge to continue to give advice appropriate for each clients personal financial requirements.
Mr Gubbins, Manchester
I have known David Bunyan for over 9 years during which time he has acted as my IFA dealing with my Pension Investments in Standard Life and other investments in Bonds and ISAs. He has also provided me with services regarding me and my wife's Wills and other general financial and investment advice following my retirement in 2007. I am a qualified accountant having worked in both the Public and Private Sector until my retirement in 2007 when I turned to David to provide me with specialist Independent Financial advice. Over that time David has provided me with sound and well informed financial advice which has resulted in continuing improvements in my pension and other income. His integrity is first class and he has undertaken continued professional education in his field to improve his service to his clients including myself. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone and I will continue to use his services in this respect in the future.
Mr Thompson, Stafford
D.M.F.S.Ltd are my personal financial advisors. I have always been more than satisfied with the service and advice I have received. At the beginning a thorough assessment of my assets, financial requirements and future planning was made plus a complete assessment of my personal views to finances. D.M.F.S then calculated the value of the investment and gave me appropriate choices for investment. The value of the investment has risen higher than expected and I am more than satisfied with the outcome. I would recommend this company, not just because there has been an increase but also because I feel confident in their ability to give sound advice whilst looking after my best interests.
