What our clients say
I would just like to first of all thank you for your informed and reassuring advice and for allaying my immediate concerns. Thank you for your professionalism and patience.
Mr G Courtney, Reigate
I originally contacted Unbiased as I was looking for advice with regards to options around transferring a defined benefit pension. David Mitchell from Kingston Smith Financial Advisers promptly contacted me to arrange a meeting. I was very pleased with the level of service I received from David and Kingston Smith and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for personal financial advice.
