What our clients say
I would recommend Mike Greely to anyone, I have implicit faith and trust in his judgement, we both feel secure with him dealing with our finances and we look forward, hopefully, to a long working relationship for years to come. In today's world, feedback seems to be the key to most organisation's continued improvement for customer satisfaction - one goes through a series of tick boxes between 1 and 10 grading the service and not really paying much attention, but just getting that form filled in and sent off. For us, Mike Greely deserves far more than what the standard questions would ask. We wish him continued success, he will go a long way with his natural ability to connect and be genuinely interested in his clients’ welfare. I know that if anything happens to either one of us, that his support will be invaluable. Mrs J & Mr T B, Essex 17.09.2017
Mike Greely, Chelmsford
Michael Greely has been my financial advisor for several years. I am extremely pleased with the advice he has given and my savings have thrived. I regard Michael now as a friend. I know I can call on him for help and advice at any time and that he will get back to me with clear advice promptly. His manner is always cheerful and his memory of my family members is amazing - always asking after them and myself. I trust Michael totally both with my present finances and with ideas and plans for the future as I get older. I am very grateful to him and always look forward to our annual review as he explains everything so clearly even I can understand it! C.R., Middlesex, 16.08.2017
Mike Greely, Chelmsford
We have found Mike to be very good in all aspects, especially knowledge of products, which is very good and wide ranging. Mr & Mrs P, Essex, 05.10.2017
Mike Greely, Chelmsford
As always it is good to see Mike, with my daughter. I always feel he has my best interests at heart and does a great job. More like meeting up with an old (that’s me!) friend. Many thanks. Mrs V W, Upminster, Essex 09.10.2017
Mike Greely, Chelmsford
My wife and I have known Nigel since 2008 when he became our financial adviser. He has always been painstaking in helping us to understand the full implications of all decisions and extremely patient when we fail to grasp everything. We have been very pleased with his financial acumen and delighted with the result of his advice to date, so much so that we have had no hesitation in recommending him to several members of our immediate family. We find him to be affable, approachable, professional and he has a good sense of humour! Dr T & Mrs P S, 03.2016

Nigel Shouksmith has been our much valued financial adviser for almost twenty years. During this time he has given us excellent advice regarding tax efficient investments as well as guidance through the complicated world of capital gains taxation, property investment, inheritance taxation and the Stock Market.

We have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending him to anyone who is seeking sound management of their financial affairs. Dr & Mrs G C F, 29.03.16

Peter and his team have consistently provided a reliable and pleasant service, our meetings are regular and I consider his fees are good value for money. Essex, June 2016
Peter Emery, Colchester
We met with Jane in 2014. Neither of us had received professional advice before and Jane has been extremely helpful to us in simplifying things into words we’ve been able to understand. Importantly, she’s also an animal lover! Mr & Mrs S, 27.08.2016
Jane Coster, Suffolk
I was introduced to Emery through my employer and on leaving continued contact with them via the company pension. My pension portfolio needed to be reviewed and I contacted Emery directly for their help. Tim O’Brien has been fantastic help; clearly explaining every step, understanding my level of risk and needs for the future. He keeps me abreast of things and went the extra mile with regards to the changes that occurred with the recent Brexit vote. I can’t recommend enough. V.M., Cambridge, 25.09.2016
Tim O'Brien, Chelmsford
My wife and I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Tim O'Brien for a number of years, firstly at the Natwest then in his current role at Emery. Tim is an extremely conscientious professional and takes great care and time to understand our financial requests and needs. We are passionate about detail and we wanted to find a financial professional to work with who had this as a strength. Tim is that - he works fastidiously to find the ultimate solutions to match our personal needs and then is patient in explaining the results. I would highly recommend Tim - not only as a true professional to entrust your personal finances, but as genuinely great guy to work with! C.B., Essex, 19.10.2016
