What our clients say
TPO made us think about our future in terms of financial needs. The Adviser talked to us about our lifestyle, our expectations and plans, and our attitude toward investment risks. They were sensitive to our circumstances, understood our concerns in terms of risk and at no time exerted any pressure to invest out of our comfort zone. They were able to explain clearly what was proposed, and why, and gave us time to consider our options. TPO helped us make our decisions step by step, which gave us confidence and reassurance that we were maintaining control of our finances. They have always been available to answer any questions or concerns that have arisen.
Client, North Yorkshire
I have great confidence in the work of The Private Office. Whether working alongside them for a mutual client, or where as a trustee I have engaged them, their technical knowledge and expertise is excellent. Their ability to express technical matters in a clear and accessible way is particularly good. They work very well as part of a team, and are keen to work collaboratively to ensure the best solutions and service for the client. In an increasingly complex investment world, their advice is invaluable for trustees, facilitating informed decisions and enabling trustees to demonstrate proper regard to their duties
