What our clients say
Michael Baxter from GS Group was professional clear and concise with his advice and the plan was put in place with very little trouble. I can definitely recommend the GS group for your insurance needs, customer service and advice is first class.
Carmen, Aberdeen
At all times throughout the process, it was made clear to me this was not a rubber-stamp decision, it needed to be the best option for me in relation to my personal circumstances and my attitude to risk. They were not there, simply to tell me what I wanted to hear but to help me make the best decision. The process may feel lengthy with risk assessment forms, terms of reference, fund performance histories etc but that in my eyes equates to thoroughness.
