What our clients say
I originally had a portfolio with a bank that was not performing well and was receiving very little information as to why ie. no personal contact. I contacted Richard who I had previously met on another occasion and asked for his advice.During our meetings we found him to be considerate and very helpful explaining different types of investments in a straight forward way that would suite our personal requirements. Richard put into place a new investment portfolio for myself and my wife and continues to advise us on our finances on a regular basis in a most understanding and helpful way.
Mr J Clementson, Surrey
I wanted to transfer out of a small final salary pension scheme so that in a couple of years time I could take advantage of the recent changes in pensions legislation. One main issue was the tight time scale I had been given by my pension provider to transfer out. Finding an IFA who was willing and able to help wasn't as straightforward as I'd hoped - especially finding one that didn't charge outrageous fees! Final salary scheme transfers seems to be an area that a lot of IFA's steer clear of, either due to lack of expertise or concerns about future comebacks. Richard quickly understood my specific requirements and after reviewing my circumstances was happy to recommend a way forward that suited my needs and was economically viable. I was apprehensive about being able to meet the tight deadline but Richard assured me that we would be OK ..... and we were, despite Christmas and New Year getting in the way. I have been very impressed with the way Richard has dealt with the whole process from start to finish. Everything was explained to me in detail and was all backed up with relevant documentation. Very happy with Richard's recommendations, documentation and subsequent online access provided. The transfer has just been effected and I'll be keeping a regular eye on the fund's progress.
Richard has been professional and helpful throughout and what's more is a thoroughly good bloke.
Mr M Borgia, Surrey
I was looking for assistance in reviewing my complete financial situation, specially my savings, investments and pensions. Richard was recommended to me by a friend. Richard was able to provide comprehensive planning for me financially. He was very knowledgeable and made everything easy to understand. I now feel much more confident that the preparation, planning and regular reviews we have together will allow me to retire a little earlier, and yet still allow me the financial capacity to do all the things that I have always wanted to do, both whilst I'm still working and after I retire.
I had spoken to previous IFA's before Richard, who seemed to go out of their way to make things confusing and were totally unhelpful. I have found Richard the complete opposite, friendly, happy to help and willing to go the extra mile. His service has been first class.
Mr A Solanki, London
I started claiming my professional pension and had a lump sum from my pension and an inheritance from my late father. Richard has been very helpful in putting my questions in context.
In looking at my yearly income, investment of savings and the forecasting of projected needs and eventualities. The choices are then my own.
Richard has helped me make informed decisions for myself, and select levels of risk with which I have been comfortable. He guides, but does not force the issue at any point. He does not make inflated promises but, thus far, I have been very pleased with progress. He is very accessible and prompt in responding to communication. He explains more complicated concepts clearly.
Richards guidance has proved fruitful thus far. As my personal or external situation changes, I am confident that I have someone who will stand alongside me.
I have not always heard complimentary things about Independent Financial Advisers. Richard is definitely an exception to this stereotype.
