What our clients say
My initial free of charge meetng with Flora was very useful in terms of helping me understand my financial position and how it will affect my future plans. She listened to what I had to say and offered helpful advice. There was no hard sell and left it up to me to decide when to take the next step.
Friendly and professional service; Flora is excellent at explaining in-depth financial matters in a simple and straightforward way. She and the team take the fear out of financial advice and make it a pleasurable experience.
Flora listened and understood my requirements, a trait not found in all IFAs ! She then provided her advice in a professional and clear manner, enjoyed doing business with Flora and Team.
Excellent work from this company in sorting out my pensions. Lovely people doing an amazing job... I would fully recommend them
I appreciated the dedication and swift action of Parsonage Financial Planning to get my wife's Lasting Power of Attoney activated following a very serious stroke which meant she no longer had capacity to look after her accounts held in her sole name. Urgent access was needed for nursing home fees. Communication with them was very good and I was regularly kept up to date on the progress. Nothing was too small or too great for them to tackle quickly and efficiently.
Financial matters are a mystery to me, but Flora and her excellent and friendly team, were splendid in making everything plain and simple when I recently needed to cash in some pensions. There was absolutely no pressure but there were a good few laughs. - that is surely the way to do business. Thank you, Flora.
I like the more personal service and prompt response to any enquiries. We have also been pleased with the performance of our investments in what can only be described as difficult financial circumstances.
I was very pleased with the way Flora put us at our ease and explained the different options.

Thank you for looking at our profile, see our reviews for more about how we work, and here’s a bit more about us:
***We are taking a break over Christmas so please get in touch by email and we'll pick it up in January or phone the office on 28th, 29th and 30th if you would like to speak to someone directly. Merry Christmas!***
When Malcolm isn’t working he’d like to be playing/watching cricket but these days, he’s more likely to be taking part in a toddler’s tea party, drinking imaginary tea.
I’m Flora and I can’t remember what my hobbies were before I had two kids; going to gigs? city breaks? Reading? These days, it’s easier to copy their hobbies; lego, walking up waterfalls, kayaking and climbing. I guess I’m healthier thanks to them, anyway!
We love being a small firm because we love working closely with a small number of customers. It wouldn’t be fair to our current customers to engage too many more, so our minimum advice value is quite high.
We are happy to help with other transactions on a one-off basis, although you might find that you need to contact us directly about those.
We ask you what you want and we help you get there. That is really what we do best. Here is how we do it.
Flora will help best if you need to plan for Inheritance Tax, need an income from your pension or your investments.
Ask for Malcolm if you need to build your wealth or if you're moving home.
