John Ashworth BSc(Econ) Hons; Dip(PFS); PGCE
Later Life Accredited Adviser
What our clients say
John is very clued up on market conditions, and tailors his advice to the individual. He makes applications/ transactions much easier and less painful than they might be.
Dave D, Essex
John gives a very personal and considered service. He is prepared to spend time finding out the best course for you, explaining everything in detail, and give an unbiased recommendation. He also acts very quickly on your behalf to make sure the 'mechanics' of moving money around are done as smoothly and quickly as possible. I have confidence that he has given us good advice. What could your adviser do better? Very little. Things have gone as I hoped with a reasonable return on my investments. John is currently advising me on my pension plans. Glynn, Berkshire
Glynn Grylls, Maidenhead

Katarzyna L, Bucks
My adviser is excellent, his advice over a number of years has proved to be very successful in helping me deal with my money, he full appreciated my level of risk and responded accordingly with his recommendations. He always responds very quickly to any e-mails/letters/telephone messages too, so I am extremely pleased with his professional services. Frances, West Midlands
Frances H, West Midlands
John has a comprehensive knowledge of wide range of financial issues and is able to communicate the key points easily and effectively. He is extremely thorough in his approach, addressing a broad variety of options and ensuring that the client is made aware of the risks and benefits of each. Furthermore, John pro-actively maintains regular contact with his clients and is always willing to present and discuss new options.
David Buckle, Surrey
John Ashworth is a highly intelligent and highly qualified experienced IFA. He is also astute and well focussed. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of the financial spectrum and well able to deal beneficially with his clients. It is very reassuring to have John as my IFA, as I have absolutely full confidence in him dealing with all of my financial affairs in a professional and amiable manner. What could he have done better? Nothing. He has always been totally "on the ball" and immediately reactive in a wholly professional and efficient manner.
Barry Govey, Camberley
John quickly understood my needs and constraints. He cut through the clutter to help me consolidate the pre-existing sprawl of pensions and recommended a few options. The service was supportive and clear.
Richard Thorpe, Surrey
John listens well, understands my aims and objectives, is available to talk evenings and weekends, is frank and open regarding charges and responds promptly. What could your adviser do better? Can\'t think of anything. William Page, Berkshire
Will Page, Berkshire
John has very good customer relation skills, being very good in taking the time to listen and fully review my situation. He explained products and options clearly. He gave me comprehensive detailed information on forward planning.
Pauline O, Buckinghamshire
John understands my situation - he gives honest advice and lets you know when it would be better to follow a route that means he would not benefit financially
Tony James, Worcestershire
John has helped with advice on our savings and increased our investments. also he has helped us lower our monthly mortgage payment. Janet
Janet L, Camberley
John has always been up to speed with any financial advice I need. I am sure he has also rescued people from truly awful advice they has previously received. I am a fairly skilled investor. I have always preferred fee based advice. Michael
Michael Underwood, Gerrards Cross
John gave advice over the years on organising finances prior to retirement, on investing a lump sum, and he organised a care plan policy for my Mum. Also he has given me quick advice on a variety of smaller items What could your adviser do better? Nothing that I can think of
Sally Wood, Windsor
John provides a bi-annual assessment of our investment portfolio and advice on investments and realisations as necessary. What could your adviser do better? Not a lot Michael
Mike F, Leyburn
John not only has a highly professional approach, but from the moment you make conversation with him you feel natural trust, sincerity and the keenness to help together with a desire to look into an issue and come back very quickly.. I feel John is one of the family and consider he is one in a million. He has done me proud with my investments and I plan to stay with John without hesitation. What could your adviser do better? I cannot think of anything which John could do better. Just keep up the very high standard of service
Mike Green, Gerrards Ceross
John Ashworth has been my Financial Advisor for the past 15 years. During this period, John has worked with me on a fee only basis. The advice I have received has always been in line with the mildly conservative attitude to risk which I adopt, and has reaped solid returns. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending John to anyone.
Ian Fleming, Gerrards Cross
