What our clients say
Michael gave clear and easy to understand analyses of how various models/risk levels and external circumstances would impact our income over our lifetimes. Prompt responses to queries and patient explanations to ensure thorough understanding of implications of decisions. It is still early days yet, but outcomes all better than expected so far.
Linda Winn, Westbury-on-Severn
James arranged a meeting and we reviewed all my pensions and savings, he helped to discover our level of risk that we were appropriately decided for our next phase before eventual retirement. He reviewed and then returned to explain his recommendations in easy non "finance-garble" speak, which we could easily understand. Now all finances are at the correct risk level for this financial era, and pensions placed in a manageable SIPP.
