What our clients say
Thank you for your very helpful advice when I consulted you recently. You were very professional, and kept the consultation focused and specific to the matter about which I'd approached you. Your interest was in what I needed and what was best for me. I found you to be knowledgeable, ethical and trustworthy and I would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for financial advice.
Simon Ashley, Broom
We just wanted to thank you for all the time and attention that you have given us looking in to an income protection plan and both our pensions. Your knowledge and expertise have been invaluable to us. Thanks to your advice we are now on track to be able to retire in our early sixties. We will continue to recommend your services to friends and family.
Amanda Green, Hoddesdon
Being the owner of a financial services company myself, I am better placed than most to comment on the abilities and professionalism of associates I pass my clients on to. Knowing her financial pedigree and having recently sat in on a client meeting in which she assisted in providing first class care fees guidance, I can confidently recommend Sarah Pohlinger to any of my clients requiring such specialist advice. Sarah is able to convey complex financial issues in a refreshingly straightforward manner and has the requisite intellect and qualifications to back up her recommendations.
David West, Ware
After getting some financial advice from Sarah I decided to sign up with her for a longer term arrangement. This was an excellent decision because not only did she have an eye on my finances but she also helped me navigate the impenetrable world of pensions and savings. She helped me set goals and she talked in a language I understood. Working with Sarah has been well worth the money and I'd recommend her without hesitation.
Corine Hines, Bristol
It is my pleasure to recommend Sarah, indeed i have already done so to a number of friends and colleagues. It is not just her independence from fund management or insurance companies that makes her service so appealing. She has excellent knowledge and the ability to explain options clearly. I can honestly say that I understood most of what she was saying, and her advice has completely turned around my finances. As a result I now have greater clarity, and feel much more financially secure in my future.
Dr Gerry McCabe, Hertford
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sorting out my ISA's. You asked lots of questions to find out what my priorities were over the next few years and what level of risk I was happy with and I felt comfortable that you knew what was right for me. You came back promptly with a list of funds that matched my needs and I'm very happy with your advice. You have an enormous wealth of experience from all that time working in the city and that really sets you apart from other financial advisers that I have dealt with before. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone needing expert financial advice.
Nigel Adams, Welwyn Garden City
