What our clients say
From my first meeting with Katie Jones, her service has been spot on. She produced the most detailed and professional Personal Financial Report I have ever received outlining the reasons I should transfer from my existing pension arrangements. When I had a time issue where I needed to have the lump sum transfer money through to me to meet a deadline, she chased the companies every day, keeping me informed as she did so. The money duly arrived in time, Believe me there are times when I have been at the other end of the spectrum, service wise!! So to receive attention to my requirements like this was very refreshing.
