What our clients say
Excellent, Honest Advice and No Charge I contacted The Pension Planner because I had two pension pots which I thought may be able to perform better if I consolidated them into one. Andrew Hursthouse and his excellent team thoroughly investigated both pensions including challenging one of the pension providers resulting in a 33% increase in the value of that pension. Ultimately, having taken my risk profile into account, Andrew advised that the best course of action was for me to put the two pensions into payment myself (with his telephone assistance if required) and that The Pension Planner would make no charge for the services provided to date. In view of the service I received, the regular progress updates and approach-ability of The Pension Planner, I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Paul Harrop, Trust Pilot Review
Great financial advise on pensions We were not satisfied with our previous FA, who was good at selling products but not so good on providing updates or answering our queries when we were unsure whether to stay with a product. Since moving to the Pension Planner, Andrew has provided us with so much guidance and answered our questions, he truly understands our different attitudes to risk and works hard to meet our needs. We have learned so much more in the short time we have been with the Pension Planner than all our years with previous financial advisers. Would definitely recommend them to everyone who is looking for advice on their pension situation.
Tania, Trust Pilot Review
Happy to recommend The Pension Planner Marvin handled my pension review, that turned out to be quite complex. Due to me being a bit of a journeyman in my earlier working years, I had bits of pensions from various employers lurking waiting to be reunited with me. I also consolidated my various areas of savings to be part of the review for my future. There were times when progress seemed slow, although the updates from the company kept me informed. Delays being from my providers not being as timely as they could be at providing information for Marvin to use. Hew was then able to meet with me and guide me through various options and possible benefit and penalty points. The result is that I am glad to have found and used The Pension Planner company in Sheffield, and just nee time to enable my retirement plans bare fruit. As someone over 50 I should have done this years ago. To those under 50 reading this, I would say get planning with good guidance.
Martin, Trust Pilot Review
Nick and the team at The Pension Planner have provided a superb service in transferring my pension from my previous large corporate employer. It's a huge decision and the professionalism, knowledge and efficiency with which they handled this major decision was first class. Once the transaction was complete - it's time to demonstrate their real skill in managing the portfolio in a somewhat turbulent market. So far, so very good - it's been a bumpy road for the last 6 months and no doubt with Brexit and Mr Trump, things are unlikely to calm down in the near future. For me, it's in these times that The Pension Planner and their partners need to prove their worth. I am impressed with the quality, depth and timelines of the portfolio performance update information that they provide. We have also had the first sit down review of performance and in-depth look at the exciting prospect of taking a a graduated income as I reduce my working hours a little and spend more of my time doing the things in life that I love the most. Thanks Nick and team for all you have done so far, I look forward to working with you towards enabling my future plans to come to fruition.
