Linda, West Yorkshire
We have found Andrew is very transparent about the charges he makes for his services and we feel gives great value for money.
Peter and Sandra, Pontefract
Mr. Andy Dodd I have known Mr. Andy Dodd since April 2005 where he became financial adviser to my wife and me. At this time Mr. Dodd was offering financial advice and financial planning to senior managers in education who were retired or about to retire. Professional Mr. Dodd has always portrayed a very professional outlook to his work. He has the ability to offer advice and information in a very understandable format to individuals who do not have investment background or sound investment knowledge. Mr. Dodd has offered advice and undertaken action on a wide range of financial matters for us. Each action has been thoroughly discussed so that we have a clear understanding of what is proposed. In areas where he feels he is unable to answer our requests e.g. Wills / Probate he will seek advice and recommend the appropriate personnel. We are aware that Mr. Dodd travels extensively in his work throughout the country. He is always prompt in attending meetings at our home. Consequently he has an impeccable ‘time management’ ability. In our discussions with Mr. Dodd we have never felt rushed in our meetings or rushed into making decisions. We have no concerns in raising questions with Mr. Dodd regarding our financial affairs. If he does not have the information to hand Mr. Dodd will readily ‘get back’ to us about the matter. Professional Development We are aware through our meetings with Mr. Dodd that he is very keen to keep abreast of current developments in the financial sector. Through discussion it evident that Mr. Dodd is also keen to obtain further financial qualifications and it is reassuring that he has done this throughout his career. He has studied for and obtained BSc (Hons) and has qualifications to be a Chartered Financial Planner. This personal development gives the consumer confidence in the advice that he has to offer. Personal Mr. Dodd has many likeable qualities that help him in his work. He has a happy outgoing personality and a sense of humour. He is a very personable man and immediately puts you at ease in discussions on financial matters. We have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Dodd as an adviser for financial affairs.
