James Grimsted, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? I needed advice (including the pros and cons) relative to transfer out of three final salary pensions. How did Greg Charlton help you? Greg visited my home (circa six months prior to covid hitting the UK) and reviewed my financial circumstances. Greg arranged a detailed assessment of the implications, benefits and potential risks of transferring out of my final salary pension arrangements. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? I decided to transfer out all three final salary pensions. As of 2 January 2021, I am very pleased with the performance of my pension account, especially in view of the very volatile markets we have seen since March 2020 when the covid 19 pandemic hit. What could they have done better? No comment to make here - I am happy with the service Greg has provided.

Alan Bigwood, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? Aswell as advice on general finances, pensions, mortgages etc I also had equity in my house and wanted to explore how best to use this. How did Greg Charlton help you? Streamlined various pension pots, offered mortgage quotes, presented options for additional property purchase and generally gave me grounded and thorough advice. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Definitely! Feels like my finances are much more joined up and I'm able to make informed, long-term decisions.
Kate, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? We required advice about and ongoing support for a variety of financial products and services. How did Greg Charlton help you? Greg was not only helpful and informative and but also transparent and realistic from the outset. His ongoing support, furthermore, was professional, friendly and efficient. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? We are very, very happy with the outcome which has far exceeded our expectations of what was possible. Greg Charlton came highly recommended to us, and we in turn have no hesitation in extending that recommendation to others. What could they have done better? Nothing to suggest.
John, Verified VouchedFor Review
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a financial adviser? I needed urgent and complex mortgage and financial advice on multiple subjects (not just straight forward mortgage). How did Greg Charlton help you? Greg showed an outstanding depth of knowledge and commitment to helping me with an urgent and complicated situation. He went far above and beyond what one might expect to deal with my situation urgently. By doing this Greg and his team saved me a lot of money. I couldn’t be happier with the service and I recommend them highly. Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes. 100% satisfaction. What could they have done better? Honestly there is nothing that could have been done better the service was out of this world. Great knowledge. Outstanding service.
