What our clients say
Mr Blessed prepares well for our annual reviews, he generaly covers all the possibilities and controls his meetings in a friendly but efficient manner. Should I require any information or advise interim he is on the ball, listening to my querie and responding at once or certainly within 24 hours.
Alan O, Doncaster
In the modern complex world of finance, my over-riding requirement is to be able to trust my financial advisor, and I know that I can totally trust Ian in all my dealings with him. He is very straightforward, and explains the details of the most complicated matters in a way that I can understand. I receive letters from pension providers, HMRC and other financial institutions which I can barely understand, but Ian explains how to respond in all cases.We always meet each year to discuss my financial plans and requirements for the coming year, and Ian then recommends the appropriate course of action. He has set me up with with a medium risk portfolio, and I have given him total authority to switch funds and investments, as he thinks fit. To date, we have had a very satisfactory return on our investments, but I am confident that Ian will react, on my behalf, to any unforeseen events which could cause a problem.He is always available at the end of a phone, and will respond promptly to handle any queries that may arise, and we have occasional extra meetings, as needed.I'm always impressed by the breadth of his knowledge and the way in which he manages to keep up-to-date with all the latest details. I would recommend Ian to anybody, totally and without reservation. He has been looking after my financial affairs for the last 10 years, through good and bad times, but I always feel secure in the knowledge that he is looking after my interests.
David O, Sheffield
