Antony Devine
IFA / Director
Andrew Nicolson
What our clients say
Tony helped me by consolidating my pensions and transforming their performance, despite the financial meltdown in 2008. He is by far the most professional and fastidious IFA I have worked with over the past 25 years.
Philip B., Merton
An extremely professional and well informed advisor.
Frances N., Belgravia
I thoroughly recommend Antony Devine. I have known Tony for a number of years as an IFA! but it is only for the last few years that I have used his services for my personal financial affairs. I value his advice and guidance with my portfolio and he is very approachable.
Pam B., Goring-by-Sea
From our first meeting I felt like I was being looked after by a professional. Tony has been business-like and straightforward throughout. He covered all aspects and eventualities and went to great pains to ensure we fully understood everything.
Lt. Col. Mick H., Windsor
Very happy with Tony’s handling of setting up my financial package including the merging of other existing investments. Thereafter very happy with the % returns Tony has achieved on my investments.
Mike S., Hornchurch
I would like to express my high regard for the service and support that Tony Devine has provided to us over the past few years. Tony has always taken the greatest care to understand any financial challenges we have faced, before carefully considering and explaining the options available to us and then advising us which solution is best for us and why. I have no hesitation in recommending Tony to anyone who needs financial advice services - you will certainly be in safe hands.
Anthony L., Hampton
Tony Devine has been managing my personal finances now for around 10 years. He is extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and always takes the time to properly understand my needs and goals. He has completely turned around my investments – from lack-lustre or failing funds – to investments which are outperforming the market. He is very approachable and easy to work with, and extremely responsive, often proactively suggesting changes of funds which he thinks would be beneficial. I can’t recommend him highly enough, and feel very fortunate to have ‘found’ him to manage my portfolio.
Catherine L., Chiswick
Just few words to express my gratitude for your friendly, professional and focused on my best interest analysis on planning my retirement. I very much appreciated your frank approach in pointing out how to reach my goals. To be honest, I used to be a bit sceptical with financial advisors (due to previous bad experiences) but your crystal clear arguments helped me to review my hesitations. I have not any objection to recommend you to all my friends who may want an impartial financial advice.
Gerry G., London
Tony has been looking after my investments and advising me on my various company pensions since early 2007. He is an excellent investment adviser and I have made consistently good returns through his advice. He responds promptly to my emails and phone calls, explains things very clearly (my first language is not English) and all in all I am very satisfied. His German isn’t very good but he only tries that out for fun!”
Dr Waltraud S., Pimlico
Tony and I met through a strong recommendation from a much-trusted friend of many years whose opinion I value; her advice was sound. Over some 12 or 13 years, I have also come to trust Tony’s financial advice implicitly. He has guided us skilfully through different economic shifts, protecting our pension and investment portfolio and we continue to value his advice. In my turn, I recommend Tony strongly.
