What our clients say
I was the Chief Executive of a subsidiary company of a large PLC chemical manufacturer. I had some investments at that time looked after by the investment arm of a major UK bank as well as some with a small local IFA. At that time I was in need of some good independent financial planning advice and my accountants, a major international firm, recommended me to Three Counties. This was nearly 25 years ago! Starting with a modest investment, it became clear that this was a special company and I soon transferred all my other investments into Three Counties care. Under the direction of Peter West, Three Counties has brought together a strong team which has provided me with a personal and caring service in which I have total confidence. I know that what is advised will always be in my interest alone. By keeping an open understanding of my personal, financial and family issues has enabled Three Counties to adjust my Personal Financial Plan to cater for the ever changing requirements caused by economic, legislative and personal requirements – latterly we have been concentrating on Inheritance Tax and estate planning. Peter West is a man of integrity who I trust and who has become a friend. I have no hesitation in recommending this company to future potential clients who require wealth management and financial planning. In fact a number of my friends are also now enjoying the benefits of Three Counties advice.

We have known Andrew Alexander, Head of Investments for Three Counties, for some time and enjoy his challenging and robust due diligence process for fund selection. He clearly has a deep understanding of the market and meetings with him are always entertaining and thought-provoking. Andrew likes to dig-deep into the finer details of the fund and also into the thought process of the manager; always with a view to how this will fit with the client portfolios he manages. Analysis and recommendation from Andrew is therefore highly regarded and appreciated.

I have known Three Counties for many years as one of the leading and most forward looking advisory firms in the North East. As an investment manager dealing with this firm, their professionalism and insight clearly shows and no doubt they apply similar standards when dealing with clients. Three Counties’ market knowledge and insight into what makes a successful fund manager shines through when you come to present to them. At Miton we concentrate our energies on those firms which, like us, have clear strategy to add value to their clients, which we see as the route to long term success in this highly competitive industry.
