What our clients say
I have known Andrew for many years, and his father before that. They have been our family financial advisor since 1972. We have introduced many family members and friends over the years to both Andrew and Piers, and would not have done so if we had not the fullest of confidence in their integrity, honesty and professional ability. Andrew is personable and takes a personal interest in every aspect of our family thus ensuring that we receive the very best current advice possible. He is supported by Kerren Scales, who also provides excellent support and advice when needed. Together they make an excellent team and able to give that very personal touch other larger financial institutions cannot emulate. The continuity over the past 50 years has been the bedrock of this family business.
Mr M, Berks
I have trusted my financial planning with Andrew since the second mortgage I took out in my early 20s. As a young person at that time the world of mortgage advisors seemed full of those linked to companies but promising that they were independent. Andrew was very different and extremely ethical in his approach. Friendly and down to earth practical advice and very knowledgeable and experienced in what he does. Has always given me excellent advice and made stressful times very easy. Andrew is trustworthy and provides good value for money in the services he provides.
ET, Kent
Keeps us advised on movements of our savings/investment portfolios, advice very timely and always with full regard to our attitude to risk. Very approachable and with the ability to explain matters in an uncomplicated fashion.
Mr & Mrs B, Kent
