What our clients say
We felt that Pat really understood our requirements and explained the various options available to us in a very straightforward and easy to understand manner. Pat made recommendations to us that we had not considered ourselves and made the application process very easy, in fact she took control of the whole thing and answered all our queries quickly. We received excellent advice and there was no pressure to proceed with anything we did not wish to. We found the financial planning session really useful. Pat is really friendly, approachable and easy to talk to; she listened and understood our concerns which has given us piece of mind for what the future may hold
Simon, Walderslade
Pat is a very helpful adviser. She does not have pre-determined ideas about what will work for you as an individual, Pat assesses your personal circumstances and gives advise which meets your needs not that which will make her the best income.
Charles, Rochester
