What our clients say
Over the years I have become very skeptical of financial advisers having had my fingers burnt in the past. However I was recommended to Penguin a few years back and they have always provided a very professional service which I have been extremely happy with. They are not pushy or will try to sell you something that he feels is not in your interest and for the first time I have found a Financial Adviser with a big conscience and I would wholeheartedly recommend Penguin to anyone.
Mark, Cardiff
Having spent time with Penguin in order to receive Financial advice, I can only say that they are true business professionals with a clear grasp of what it takes to get things done. Their ability to help my needs through good communication is outstanding. My adviser's commonsense approach to issues and opportunities is both unique and refreshing. Above all, he impressed me with his willingness to be honest and offer the best advice possible. All in all, Penguin have been an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to all my friends-family.
Ben, Cardiff
My Penguin Adviser is excellent at taking the time to listen to his clients current situation and advise on short term and long term financial planning. He identifies the solutions that you should have in place as well as suggesting future solutions/products that you will potentially need along your financial journey. Penguin's aim is to develop a long lasting relationship with their clients where they can regularly review their financial plan and help ensure they achieve their financial plan.
