What our clients say
I have used Nick Holmes for many years and I can 100% say he knows what he's talking about. He always dishes out the best advice whether it be with pensions or mortgages. Nick Holmes has helped me through many situations and it means a lot that he can come to me in the evenings, out of his own way for a meeting and catch up. I would Highly recommended Nick.
Alison, Southampton
We are fairly green and inexperienced to the world of finance and pensions so everything seemed a bit confusing until Nick at Primary Financial Solutions stepped in to assess and explain in plain English the considerations and options for us. As result of his patience in educating us, and the logical and calm process applied, we have now progressed a number of steps along the financial path, and will continue to use Nick on regular basis. We would therefore recommend the services of PFS based on our experience. This has also taken a burden of weight off our shoulders with regard to ensuring that our pensions and other financial matters are now in the correct direction for us.

So good to have a financial adviser you can trust. Nick Holmes at PFS is giving us the advice that works for us and takes the time to explain everything in detail.
Jes, Hertfordshire
From the initial contact until now, Mr Nick Holmes has proved to be a very, financially beneficial find. I was immediately struck by his quiet, confident and reassuring manner. I found him to be, knowledgeable, informed, engaging and immensely likeable. Even from the point of our first meeting, he engendered a sense of trust. As it turns out, it was trust well deserved and trust that has paid dividends. Thank you, Mr Holmes.

About us

Primary Financial Solutions is a family run financial advice practice. Our advisers are able to help clients across the country, as well as locally.

Primary Financial Solutions was founded to help clients who need personalised financial advice tailored to their individual needs and circumstances.

We work with our clients to understand their current financial situation and what they are looking to achieve. We take the time to understand their goals and use our expertise to guide our clients towards them.

One of the main areas we can add value to our clients is by reviewing their existing pension portfolios. Pension planning is an important and topical, but often forgotten, part of financial planning.

Checking that your current personal pensions are working effectively for you is something best done now, rather than waiting until it is possibly too late. Transferring to a new scheme, if that is appropriate, and regular reviews to ensure you stay on track, could make the difference between just getting by or having a more comfortable retirement.

Our services

Getting to know our clients is the main reason for our success so far.

From the initial meeting through regular reviews, the more we know about you and what you what to achieve the better our advice can be tailored to suit. We build on our first experience together, with reviews at least annually, which means that we can evolve your plans as your circumstances change.

Using this approach, we have found that our clients are happy to introduce us to friends and family as they feel comfortable that we are here to help - now and in the future.
