What our clients say
"Mark Singleton has been our adviser since 2008, and over that time has given us excellent guidance and advice. He has helped us to improve our financial situation with regard to savings, mortgages and pensions, each time listening to our concerns and suggesting strategies and solutions to meet our current and future needs. Mark was originally recommended to us by work colleagues, and our confidence in his approach and expertise was such that we preferred to remain with him as clients when he set up MSC.
J Eldridge & N Simpkins, Nottingham
Approaching retirement we were deeply concerned about navigating our pension fund through the financial minefield, then we were recommended to Mark. At the time we were experiencing delaying tactics and some waffle from our pension provider. Mark came on the case, cut through all the blurb and pointed us in the right direction to get the best returns. Over the years Mark has become more of a family friend. We find him very discreet, very honest and trustworthy. With his expert advice, easily accessible, and a reassuring telephone conversation if required, we would highly recommend him to anybody.
Mr T & Mrs D Brewin, Leicester
I have the greatest respect, integrity and confidence in Mark Singleton. He has advised me for many years and gives excellent service and support. I always find Mark to be very clear in his advice with options that are tailored to my individual needs. His experience and knowledge are invaluable, he is extremely efficient and gives great direction for the best investments and polices. He really does go the extra mile to ensure that I am kept informed at all times of any changes that may need to be made. I have no hesitation to recommend Mark, reassured they too will gain the same financial benefits as myself.
S Nutt, Littlethorpe, Leicester
About us

People choose MSC because we offer three things they want from a Financial Planner:

Clarity – On their financial position, both now and in the future

Guidance – On how best to plan ahead

Trust – A relationship to support them along the way

Financial Planners need to understand pensions, investment and taxes. But it’s equally important to understand people. They need to know what matters most to you, including your attitude to money.

We like to think we’re good at this.

Our clients come from all walks of life with different needs and concerns, but there are always some similarities. They want to:

Protect what they’ve saved and make assets work for them
Approach tax pragmatically without paying more than is necessary
Reach and maintain financial independence
Ensure money is left behind when they’re gone

By understanding how your finances change over your lifetime, it’s easier to know where to invest. It helps you make informed decisions about where to put money and how much you can spend.

There’s always more than one choice, and we’ll discuss your options before making a decision.
