What our clients say
I would recommend Stephen Clare as an independent financial adviser without hesitation. I consulted him for advice over alternatives to do with pensions relating to a Local Authority employer. He dealt with me respectfully, checking that I understood all that he was saying. He did not try to push me in any particular direction and laid out all of my options with clarity and complete objectivity. I used the information he gave me to make my pension decisions . Thank you again. All my very best.
Jenny Bleasdale, Exeter
Knowledgeable, friendly and professional.

Greg Field, Exeter
This is great - thank you, Stephen, for all your hard work in organising this for me.
Emma Wodehouse, London
Stephen has provided a very useful advisory service in respect of my pensions; during informal chats he has highlighted the points I should consider and clarified issues relating to: final salary, AVC and private pension savings. I now have a clearer understanding of my options and can make decisions accordingly. Thanks again Stephen.

I have used the services of Stephen Clare since 2005. He has looked after my income protection and life assurance and helped us through a maze of mortgages and re-mortgages. He is competent, thorough and, most importantly, not pushy. I will continue to use his services in the future
