What our clients say
Michael was very friendly and helpful from outset and went through a full fact find free of charge with no 'hard sale' or undue pressure. I was more than happy to appoint Michael as my adviser, he prioritised my financial needs and broke down the advice into stages which made it understandable and clear to see the value that he could add.
Alan Moriarty, Yate
I felt much more confident about what to do with my savings after meeting Michael and grateful for his knowledge and advice. He was patient in explaining how I should go about this in the best way .
Gordon Bridges, Bristol
I wanted to transfer some final salary pensions to an independent fund, the most impressive part was Joy's commitment, providing the necessary information and transfers in a timely manner. I cannot think of anything that could have been done better, it was an excellent service.
Nick Hutchinson, Chippenham
I wanted to combine a few different pensions in to one plus a pensions transfer after divorce. James was clear, patient, friendly and helpful. He spent a considerable time understanding my needs and went away to gather relevant information and forecasts which I was able to see and digest before talking to him again. He patiently talked through different options in a relaxed way and made sure that I understood all of my options. I am extremely happy with the advice and work James has carried out for me. As a result of his advice and the recommended products I am happy to know that I will have a livable pension later in my life. Previous to this I had thought that my collection of different and small pensions would amount to very little on retirement. The work James has done for me has given me a lot of peace of mind. I don't have any criticisms (even constructive!).
Lisa Foote, Fishponds
