What our clients say
I met with Phil recently for independent financial advice. I needed to make a financial decision which was making me anxious as I really didn't know what was the right course of action. Phil was extremely patient and knowledgeable in offering 'down to earth advice'. He can explain complex information with clarity and appears genuinely very enthusiastic about his work. Highly recommended.
Alison Cavanagh, Manchester
Phil was excellent at explaining everything in terms that I could understand, which put me at my ease and gave me confidence to comfortably make decisions about the information we discussed. His charming personality made the meeting a pleasant experience and I will not hesitate to recommend his services to my friends and colleagues.
Brenda, Cheshire
We would like to thank Martin and your staff for all the work you have put into setting out our retirement plans and meeting our wishes. We chose you for your professionalism and expertise in retirement planning from our first meeting with you. If we should need any further financial planning we'll be only too pleased to use your services again and will highly recommend you to anyone that may ask our advice on finding financial advice about retirement.
Mr Walker, Urmston, Manchester
Martin listens and discusses an individuals unique needs. He has an understanding of my own circumstances and an excellent retention of information. Martin provides honest guidance and provides all of the necessary information for me to make an informed and individual decision. Martin is also excellent at explaining what for me can be quite confusing matters in a more simple and easily understood scenario. I feel confident that I am receiving valid and independent advice and most importantly never ever feel pressurised to buy any specific products that I feel inappropriate.
Mr Harding, Manchester
Martin researches and ascertains our needs. Provided us with information regarding our attitude to risk. Clearly advises on our options in a way that is easy to understand. Explains and answers all our queries that enable us to make educated choices in a friendly and approachable way.
Mrs Webb, Manchester
Phil was very helpful. His advice was easy to understand and he explained everything very clearly. He didn't use jargon and he took time to answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend him.
