What our clients say
Once my financial situation documented, my expectations considered, after several meetings, Julian and The Private Office came up with solutions for me to carefully consider. At our meetings advice was explained in detail. Having not taken my pension as yet, I feel I have chosen the correct path, that will benefit me .Investments are in the very early stages, but I feel confident that my best interests were considered. Having very little experience with financial advisers, I listened to a friend, and interviewed three different companies. I like the approach of The Private Office, their way of operating, the individual, genuine attention. I know I am only small fry, money wise, but I needed help making financial decisions, and so far I am happy with the outcome
