Principal Adviser
What our clients say
My previous Financial Adviser had moved and I wanted an Independent Financial Adviser. I found Bob Windust from First Option online and have been more than happy with his service. I can thoroughly recommend him. I needed investments with a regular monthly return and Bob was able to advise me. As I am retired and not yet receiving my state pension I needed a monthly return from my investments and savings. Bob Windust was able to advise me and I am completely satisfied with his service. What could they have done better? I cannot speak too highly about him. I am very pleased with the advice he has given me and his fees are very reasonable. Parking is also a great advantage in that I can park my car next to his house without having to pay to park my car in the centre of Cardiff.

Nick Davies, Caerphilly
I was reviewing the pensions of myself and my wife ,also purchasing a buy to let property . Bob went through all my existing pensions and where my investments are ,if they are doing the best it could. adjusted where we wanted to and helped to get the best buy to let mortgage. We are a lot more confident with the pension investments are in the right place, and i have just had a year with my buy to let property,happy with review. What could they have done better? Bob did an very good job he has good knowledge and listens carefully and very professional. the only delay we had was from the companies we had to deal with. Not sure how we can improve on that .
