Dave George, Lincoln
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? Following an accident and in the light of the new pension rules, we were looking for advice on combining several pension pots and looking for the confidence to allow my husband to not have to work and for myself to give up work and retire early. How did John Fielding help you? After thoroughly going over our finances, John provided advice and took on the consolidation and management of the pension pots. We warmed immediately to his open and honest approach and feel that he understood and continues to understand our needs, his advice both verbally and written is in a style and a manner that we both understand. This has given us both the confidence to retire early. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? My husband has been retired for 3 years and myself for just over a year. On a personal level we never knew life could be so much fun and on a financial level everything is on course for many years to come. The products that John recommended have been performing very well.
Mrs. Spurr, Lincolnshire
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? The new personal pension regulations. How did John Fielding help you? Throughout the process , all advice provided was clearly explained. Also felt my thoughts and expectations were listened to and fully taken into account; indeed my gut feel not to move one of my occupational pension pots was confirmed by Johns research & analysis and he agreed with me, fully explaining the reasons why. All questions I had were competently answered in a way I understood. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Early stages but so far 'Yes" as fully aware that any type of investment needs to be viewed in the medium to long term. What could they have done better? At this stage I can honestly say that I don't have any constructive suggestions for improvement. I was impressed how when I mentioned possible capital gain which I wanted investing how specific general advice was provided and was told to contact him as soon as I was ready rather than some hards sales push.
Mike Evans, Lincoln
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial adviser? Required DB pension transferring to a draw down pension. How did John Fielding help you? John compiled a comprehensive suitability report and chased up my former employer to get my pension transferred over. He's also given me valuable advice on being tax efficient. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? My pension was successfully transferred over to draw down so I have the outcome I wanted. What could they have done better? I don't think John could have done anything any better.

Provided guidance and advice on how to move employer pension to a pre-existing personal pension, also reviewed investments in the personal pension to ensure they were aligned with my long-term plans. John explained everything very clearly, along with the reasons for his advice.As part of more general discussions whilst we purchase a new home, John helped my husband and I review our critical illness and life insurance provisions. He recommended one change to my provisions and helped with putting a new policy in place, but also pointed out that another existing policy was perfectly adequate and didn't need to be changed. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes, clear advice and always prompt in responding to additional questions. Will definitely return to John for further advice as needed in the future.
