What our clients say
We found the 'Unbiased' site very easy to use and were quickly contacted by the firm Mazars Financial Planning. It was very reassuring to use a professional local FCA registered company. Gary Watson, the firm's Director, looked at the current position of our different pension plans, then he guided us through the key points about what to consider around pension choices, which to us was a daunting process. There are a lot of companies out there and finding the right one can be a challenge. We highly recommend Mazars Financial Planning if you are looking for a professional, honest and friendly advice.
Salvador Palomino, Sutton
Following a meeting with Andy Springford, I found the meeting extremely useful in answering the issues I walked in with for sure, but moreover the perspective it’s given me towards our overall financial position and options moving forward was both comforting and not a little revelatory. You’ve spurred me to really get a grip on our finances as is and I will no doubt be thinking more about how to maximise the value from savings we already have as part of that. So, for now, I’ll just say thank you so much for your time and advice, but don’t be surprised if I contact you again in a while to find out more about what you can do to help with our future plans.
