What our clients say
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? After. reaching 50, it was time to actively mange my retirement,. How did the financial adviser help you? Keith researched various options, compared and presented them understandable to me. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? I am satisfied with the choice and the outcome reflects my expectations. The outcome I am hoping for will manifest in 10 years and is not entirely dependent on the financial advisor himself. What could they have done better? Keith is an excellent expert in his field and is more than willing to go the extra mile to find a suitable solution for his clients. I was overwhelmed by his passion for detail.
Dejan, London
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? Seeking income protection for our mortgage. How did the financial adviser help you? Advised us entirely on the insurance we might want to consider taking out against our mortgage and also in an extremely timely manner as we were due to move into our new home within the next week. I feel that Keith has been extremely efficient and personally feel he has gone above and beyond what we ever expected of him. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes plus more.
Katie, Southampton
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I had a sum of money from an inheritance that was just sitting in my savings account, not working for me. I wanted to grow its value as much as possible over the next 5 to 10 years to create a larger deposit for a mortgage in the future. How did the financial adviser help you? He was brilliant and has vast knowledge of the whole market, including mortgages. I originally wanted to get a buy-to-let mortgage but wasn't sure this would be viable given how small my sum of money was and my self-employed income. Keith (being a landlord himself) was able to advise me on the upfront and running costs to consider. We decided a stocks and shares ISA was the best route forward at this stage - with a BTL mortgage something to look into later on in my career. Keith also advised me on Income Protection Insurance given my self-employed work and age (which meant premiums were especially low).In general, Keith has been a really prompt, thorough and friendly answer to all of my questions. He's really helped me. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? It's too early to say really, but I do feel confident and excited about the future given my decision. I trust Keith's advice and only wish I'd sought his help sooner!. What could they have done better? I really can't think of anything!
Sarah, London
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I have 2 pensions, one which I am able to use for investment and income purposes. I needed advice on what to do with these pensions. How did the financial adviser help you? Keith checked all the circumstances of the pensions and advised me accordingly. My wife and I knew nothing about the ways of dealing with these pensions and have learnt a lot from him. He also took details of all the other bits of savings my wife and I have and suggested ways of maximising our income from these. He is/has helped to try and find more information about an off-shore, non-regulated savings bond my wife took out in April 2017. thus trying to reassure us about the possible loss of the initial sum invested. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes. We have been looking for means of investing the small sum of money raised from the sale of our flat. Neither of us realised that the pension sums were available nor what we should do with them.We have found Keith to be honest, trustworthy and taking our best interests into account at all times. What could they have done better? Nothing. My earlier 4-star rating re knowing the costs involved is purely because the situation is quite complex for us. We do have a good idea - but not the actual sum involved. The benefits already outweigh what we'll pay. Keith is knowledgeable and prepared to go the extra mile to ensure he gives us the best advice. This is more impressive as we are only talking comparatively small sums of money here!
Don, Portland
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I needed somewhere to put money that wasn't earning anything in the bank account. How did the financial adviser help you? Keith advised me on many things, and gave advice without any pressure to commit. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes I'm happy with the outcome. What could they have done better? Keith used plain English to explain things, unlike others I've spoken to in the past.
Stephen, London
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? Needed financial services How did the financial adviser help you? Keith was an expert in the areas I was interested in. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes. What could they have done better? N/A.
Steve, London
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I am looking for income protection insurance. How did the financial adviser help you? He helped me find income protection insurance for me and my wife that would give us peace of mind and with the affordable monthly premiums. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Yes. What could they have done better? Nothing. Everything was done accordingly and he gives us update of the progress.
Romanov, Watford
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? Investments How did the financial adviser help you? He gave me financial advise and guided me in choosing the best way to invest my savings. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? I have only recently started my investment portfolio, so its a bit early to say. Keith has been really professional and gained my trust to move forward with him. What could they have done better? He has been brilliant so far, I don’t have anything else to add.
Davide, London
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I had a lump sum to invest How did the financial adviser help you? Keith gave me very clear and precise advice that made a lot of sense. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? The investments have just been applied so it is early days at the moment. But I am optimistic. What could they have done better? Difficult to know.
Rupert, Bournemouth
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a Financial Adviser? I recently had a daughter and I wanted to make sure I was making the most of my money in the short term while she is young and for later years when I need to pay for her education. How did the financial adviser help you? Keith built me a personal investment portfolio and advised me on a number of ways to be more tax efficient as well as save for our future. What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? Too soon to comment. What could they have done better? Keith went out of his way to make our appointments convenient for me and the administration as simple as possible, which was invaluable as my time is taken up with the baby!
