What our clients say
“Smart Financial were professional and accurate. They respond and communicate well. I am happy with everything they did for me. The reaction time to my requests was exceptional. I understand the process and where we are going with the pension. I feel properly advised and happy with the outcome.”
Rob Pollard, North-West
"Increasing complexity of personal financial affairs, and need to ensure adequate planning for retirement, led me to contact Smart Financial. They have undertaken a base line review of current financial position, offered advice on management of investments and the implementation of new pension arrangements. Ongoing advice being received, giving me confidence that everything is in order.”
David Grundy, North-West
“We looked for a financial planner as we wanted to invest inheritance and tidying up pensions. My pensions are in one place and easy to track. Investments are in line with my attitude to risk. Smart Financial are helpful, clear and they respond quickly to requests.”
Lisa Webster, North-West
“Within a couple of months of working with Smart Financial, they earned our (me and my wife) full trust and confidence. They also sorted out my pension difficulties I was having with previous employers. As mentioned above Smart Financial sorted out not only the original investments I had done but in my dealings with previous employers where her knowledge of what I was able to do and not able to do was invaluable. I think I would still be in the mire without their help. My savings and holdings are now reviewed on a regular basis and we are very happy with advice and returns we have been getting. I also appreciate it has been a good time in the last few years for investments. I would not hesitate in recommending Smart Financial. I have been very pleased with their efforts. I cannot think of anything which could have been done better.”
John Hall, North-West
“As a small business owner we had reached a stage where we had capital within the business that was not being invested and the rates we were getting from our bank savings account did not make financial sense. In addition, we wanted to offer our employees the option of a Pension as a part of their 'Flexible 'Benefits'. We approached Smart Financial to provide us with advice. They have offered financial advice across a number of different fields on a personal and company level. These have included the setting up of an employee pension scheme, Group pension scheme, personal financial planning and life insurance. This has been undertaken through individual consultations and onsite meetings plus telephone, email and postal correspondence. Throughout this time Smart Financial have been thoroughly professional, providing unique advice to the individuals concerned and tailoring schemes to their needs.”
