What our clients say
Colin has offered not only information and advice but also reassurance. He is always patient, is willing to explain things clearly and inspires confidence. He is friendly and approachable, which I appreciate, yet always remains professional. I am grateful for all his help and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Mrs MB, Solihull
Having invested through the stock market for over 50 years I wished to reduce the level of risk by spreading my investments more widely and at the same time increase my income. With the assistance of Colin Hart over the last 3 years I have managed to avoid the worst effects of the current financial crisis and maintain my level of income.
Mr WJW - Retired Business Owner, Solihull
Colin has provided us with sound financial advice for many years now and if you want someone who you can trust to do the very best for your investments he can’t be recommended enough. If Colin had not stepped in when he did a sizable company pension scheme could have been lost through negligence of a lesser financial institution. This was a real lesson in the importance of constantly checking what is actually happening to the funds that your money is invested in, so as to ensure that they perform how you want them to. Past and current directors are most grateful of his knowledge and diligent manner with matters financial.
Mr RT and Mr AT - Company Directors, Leicestershire
Colin gives independent and valued advise on all our investments and clearly explains the levels of risk involved with each potential investment before we confirm any action. His advice has proved very good. He always considers our general financial position, taking into account the potential future needs relating to our family to ensure funds would be readily available should they be required and we always have a full and comprehensive dialogue. Colin is always willing to investigate and give advice on any specific issue that arises, even if it not something that he had initiated and his support and advice has been invaluable. He is readily available and responds speedily. He always supplies paperwork to back up our conversations and decisions.
Shirley, Solihull
Colin Hart has been a tower of strength in assisting me to manage my financial affairs. He has set up a Trust for my family and has consistently given excellent advice with investments. Thank you Colin for your help and friendship - you have given me peace of mind.
Mrs B, Solihull
Colin came from a personal recommendation from a friend and, as lottery winners, we had no understanding of how investments worked. We had previously met with several advisers, but were pleased with his professionalism and felt comfortable with asking questions in the knowledge that they would be answered accurately and in a manner we found easy to understand.Colin's clear suggestions and recommendations have given us the peace of mind that we now have a single point of reference for all our financial arrangements and an action plan for achieving the financial security we are aiming for in the future.We have great confidence in the contents of the advice, which has always been fully explained to us, and more importantly, we always have the impression that any advice given is delivered with our best interests as its only goal.
Mr C, West Midlands
Mr Hart clearly and comprehensively brings me up to date with the current financial situation generally then specifically as it affects me then details in plain English the relevance it has to my particular investments. Mr Hart careful checks my views and plans with regard to my financial arrangements and lays out my options and the possible outcomes of any financial decisions I might make. He is always ready to listen and will take the time to fully understand any concerns I may have.
Rex, Shropshire
Colin is easy to deal with, and he is always available to offer sound advice, both at our regular review meetings and at other times when we need his services. He explains both the benefits and implications of any proposed action. When a plan is decided he implements it without delay.
Robert, Warwickshire
Attention to detail, explains clearly and has always been available when required.
Andrew, West Midlands
Trust is a very important attribute that I look for in a person, particularly when it comes to dealing with my financial matters and I trust Colins judgement and abilities implicitly. As a client of his for over 20 years, I have been consistently impressed with his attention to my needs, integrity and his professionalism. He explains everything clearly, including his charges and costs, in a very understandable and logical manner and I appreciate all the hard work that goes in to the management, which shows such good results, even in these difficult times.
Sylvia, Staffordshire
This adviser is dedicated to a thorough and professional approach. In 2008, he took over managing my eSIPP from another IFA and the stabalisation and subsequent growth of my fund has been impressive. He also makes sufficient time to work through all the required details with me and explains concepts clearly.

Colin's attention to detail and overall knowledge of the industry is first class, delivering a personable, friendly service whilst remaining thoroughly professional.
