What our clients say
Paul took great trouble to understand my financial requirements and carefully guided me through the investments I already had in place ensuring they fitted in with my overall risk strategy. He always keeps me advised on progress and is always available by appointment when I require advice out with my annual review.Paul has a very pleasant manner, Is always on time and interested in what is happening within the family.
Christine Kneale, Edinburgh
Paul took time to understand what we were seeking to gain from the investment, what access we may need to the invested funds and also any short term cash provision we might have to set aside. He also took time to understand our attitude to risk and what degree of control we might want to have ourselves on the management of the investments. This enabled Paul to identify appropriate investment options for our needs.He also explained the tax implications of types of investments and identified how we could make these as tax efficient as possible. He then arranged all the paperwork to enable the funds to be set up. We were also struggling to get a bank to agree to open a Trust bank account for us- Paul managed to sort this for us.
Brian Sydney, Blantyre
Paul took time to get to know us as a couple, our financial situation, our employment / retirement situation. He asked a lot of questions to get us thinking about the future and our financial requirements. He very quickly got a handle on our particular circumstances.
Rosemary Frew, Kirkcaldy
Paul has helped me for many years. Always with good advice.
Betty Nicol, Kinross
I can't think of anything we have been unhappy with. Paul conducted all our meetings in a professional, but friendly manner. He was attentive to our thoughts, opinions and preferences. His recommendations were presented in easy to understand format, supported by background detail. Investments were processed in a timely manner and we received confirmation from the investment companies at an early date.
Robin Page, Edinburgh
I received a clear picture of my options and the pro's and con's of those options allowing me to decide how to take my pension forward to my best advantage. Paul displayed a clear understanding of my drivers.
Mark Griffiths, Callendar
