What our clients say
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
Joy provided clear and precise guidance, making a complicated situation easy to understand. She moved my final salary pension and gave guidance as to what funds to look at. So far the funds have out performed the market equivalent so I am happy with that. There is nothing I can think off at present that could have been done better.
Stephen Kershaw, Swindon
Financial planning demystified! Very helpful, very patient and willing to thoroughly explain all aspects of financial planning. You don't feel pressured at any point.
Tim Hughes, Chippenham
I had serious issues with a pension in Hong Kong that John helped me to repatriate and sort out. Simple, kind, relevant advice given quickly and with effective results. Nothing could have been done better, John was extremely helpful and effective.
James Partington, Devizes
