What our clients say
We wanted unbiased independent advice, free from direct commission from providers. We have been advised by Greg Robertson for the past seven years. Through his help we have managed our finances in a way that has permitted our early retirement, at a time when most people our age (late 50's) were experiencing significant obstacles to retirement. We have also been able to help our daughter financially, following his advice. Yes. we feel that our finances are now well consolidated and efficiently managed to maximise their potential. Hard to find anything that may have been better managed.
D Longfield, Huddersfield

They always deliver an efficient and professional service. They took the hard work out of transitioning my existing portfolio and offered a tailored investment service. The ‘Enable’ platform that Robertson Baxter offers is great. It’s simple to use and gives me an up-to-date summary of my investment portfolio."

I can think of no area of his service to us where we could expect better performance or indeed better value for money."

"I have been a client since 2008, since myself and my husband retired. Unlike other financial adviser firms, Robertson Baxter knows who you are, what you want and do everything in their power to achieve it. My last five years with Robertson Baxter have been very profitable and very reassuring. They have taken great care of me and my financial matters. If you are considering appointing a financial adviser then you tend to be wary. This firm has probity and integrity and I would highly recommend them."
