What our clients say
Wayne spent invaluable time with me to understand my financial needs, he explained the complex policy recommended in simple terms and discussed both the advantages and restrictions imposed in the terms. Wayne ensured that I understood the process involved and discussed how the charges were calculated. I am very happy with the outcome. The whole experience was supportive and I felt in very safe hands.
Mr Wakefield, Beverley
Wayne is a thoroughly professional Financial Advisor with experience across all of the financial management spectrum. His focus on listening to the clients financial objectives and in what timescale is key to his success. I have been a client of Wayne for a number of years and find his his advice on wealth management issues impartial and of great benefit and has provided me with a sustainable portfolio which has provided growth over and above the usual products which people would consider. I would not have any hesitation in recommending Wayne to any of my colleagues and friends to have an objective discussion with Wayne about financial matters
Mr Daniels, Worcester
Wayne listened, which is an important thing for me. He then advised me on the best route to take with regard to my investments and pension. Wayne continues to give me clear and concise advice on my investments and takes the time to explain in more detail anything I am not too sure about.
Mr Mccreaddie, Withernsea
Mr Betts has proved to be what I would call a proper financial adviser. By this I mean he actually gives me financial advice, rather than trying to sell me investments. Following the death of my partner, Mr Betts was happy to take over our existing portfolio which he now manages in line with my requirements, leaving me free to do other things. He has also proved to be someone who will go the extra mile, certainly beyond what I would normally expect from a financial adviser
Miss Cole, Lincolnshire
Phil was introduced to me by friend and I’m so glad he was. Not only does he run my portfolios, but he is always on hand to give me any other advice I need. I feel very comfortable dealing with Phil and can thoroughly recommend him to others, as I frequently do
Mr Jessop, Lincolnshire
Phil was recommended to me by a relative who he also advises. Trust for me is the most important thing and Phil has never let me down. I have little interest in financial matters, but Phil now takes care of everything for me. Not only does he do a great job, but he has also proved to be a very kind and thoughtful man, so it’s always a pleasure when we meet up.
Mr Singleton, Lincolnshire
Wayne came to us by chance when our previous financial adviser left... and what a Godsend he has been for us. His advice has been crucial to us for planning our future financial security. We are close to our retirement and for us good financial advice that we can trust is critical. So far Wayne's advice (always suggested and never pushed upon us) has proved to be sound and has protected our investments.

About us

At James Financial, our mission is to provide a fresh approach to financial advisory and wealth management services. We are experienced advisers who provide a fresh client focused service.
We understand the longstanding impact that our advice can have on clients lives and never take this responsibility lightly. We understand that clients are generally in need of clear advice or guidance. They want advisers who actually care about their financial well-being and take the time to understand what they want.
I am sure you will find us refreshingly different. James Financial are a fresh, open and transparent financial advisory and wealth management firm. I could use various adjectives such as proactive, straight-talking, approachable, professional etc. I would rather put it more simply; we are here to help and we speak your language. Straight-talking financial advisers - now that is refreshing!

Our services

Of course, like any business, we need to attract new work and new clients. However, the fact is that we spend a lot of our time attending to the needs of our existing clients and running their investment and pension portfolios, rather than chasing brand new clients.
Wouldn’t you like to deal with a firm that puts the needs of its existing clients first?
