What our clients say
I have been working with Maya for a number of years. She advised me on a range of complex financial issues and took me across my retirement, ending of mortgage, pension, car insurance. She has been flexible. She understands the world of the busy doctor in the NHS and appreciates that our expertise is not in managing finances but in managing health. She understands the specific issues of the NHS doctor and navigates the complex paths that are needed to get all information for optimum financial management. I am glad to continue this working relationship into the future
Peter Hughes ( NHS Consultant Psychiatrist ), London
“My wife and I have been clients of Maya for many years. She has provided invaluable advice regarding our finances and financial plan. I have often found these matters and matters of the NHS pensions scheme very confusing, but Maya has always made these easy to understand. I am very satisfied with the services and products Maya has provided us. Communication and any questions are always promptly replied too. I would happily recommend Maya’s services to friends and family and in-fact have already done so.”
Dr Derek Chan (Consultant in Gastroenterology ), Epsom and St Helier Hospitals NHS Trust
We have known Maya for a few years and have benefited from her advice on NHS pensions and so much more. We are always so grateful for all her advice and guidance. Maya has been honest, trustworthy and very fair. It’s nice to know that we are in safe hands, and that we don’t have to be weary of any hidden agendas or ulterior motives. We have introduced her to many doctors over the years who have equally commended her on her services. She has taken a career change as an Independent financial advisor and we are delighted that her financial advices and services will expand in horizon with benefit to all who seek advice. We wish her every best in her next steps and recommend her with confidence
Dr Malarvizhy Baheerathan ( Consultant Psychiatrist), Epsom
“We first started getting financial advice from Maya several years ago when she worked with Wesleyan. We always found her extremely helpful, insightful, reliable and friendly, when she left Wesleyan to become an independent financial advisor with Lionel-Kojoson earlier this year, we decided to continue to use her skills and support to help sort out our finances - again, we were very happy with the detailed and skilful service provided, which helped reassure me and minimise my tax bill. I'd be happy to recommend Maya to anyone else in a similar position to ours, seeking friendly competent professional advice on their savings, tax, and pension issues”.
Dr Aodhan Breathnach, Consultant Microbiology St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
I found Maya to be very professional, always ready to explain and made sure I understood my options before making decisions. She never hurried me but always gave me time to think through. She was very prompt in dealing with my case and always kept me updated. She’s very knowledgeable in her field, I can’t fault her professional approach but is also a very friendly person. Maya listened to me. Her manner of working is so different to the other financial advisers I have been in contact with. I felt she always wanted the best for me that it wasn’t just a business for her. I’m so glad I will be able to go to her for financial advice now and for the future. I have no hesitation in recommending her services
Agnes Ofori-Atta ( NHS Nurse ), Royal Free Hospital
"I found Maya via the <url hidden> website. Maya's advice has been given promptly and has very much helped in understanding in my position and showed me a couple of options for potential capital repayment vehicles for interest-only mortgages that I had not be aware of. She is always ready to answer questions and is most courteous and professional."
David Underdown ( Digital Archivist ), National Archives, London
I was looking for a mortgage broker with regard to a buy to let property. My old mortgage company recommended me to check out <url hidden> Maya Kodiara <phone number hidden> Contacted me I followed her lead, and she recommended a lender. Everything ran smoothly and an offer was received promptly. Thank you Maya. Well done
Ka Chun Teresa IP, Kensington Solicitor
We would highly recommend Maya to anybody for her services! Maya worked with us to secure our mortgage and honestly, the process couldn't have been easier. She was patient, thorough and very good at explaining all our options before we made our decision. When we submitted our application, the offer came through in 11 days! Maya made a process that seemed complicated and long winded very seamless and easy and for that we are grateful. We will definitely be using Maya again in the future.
