What our clients say
Paul is extremely professional and knowledgable. I was so thankful for his help, he really exceeded my expectations, as sometimes these things can seem quite daunting. Looking forward to all future business with you and recommending you to all of my family and friends! Thank you.
Seija, Truro
Fantastic advice given and top notch knowledge of the whole mortgage market. So much more affordable than I expected, all I need to do is find a house now! Would highly recommend!
Adam, Blackwater
Following an unfortunate change in my personal circumstances I urgently needed to remortgage. Paul was highly recommended to me by a mutual friend and I was delighted with the service I received from start to finish. I found him to be professional, patient and clear, ensuring I fully understood every step. After making the urgency of the situation clear to Paul during our initial consultation I can't say how impressed I was with his dedication to help me within the challenging time frame I'd set. The biggest compliment I could pay would be that I would definitely use his services again in future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Thankyou!
Ben, St Austell
Incredible service, really helped make the whole process simple, he even managed to sort my protection stuff out too!
Dave, Truro
Paul works tirelessly on your behalf and offers professional, expert advice. Highly recommended.
James, Foxhole
When my brother and myself met Paul we found him extremely professional, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I couldn't rate Paul enough for all the work he did for us and its paid to not go to my bank due to far better deal Paul got me!!
James, Wheal Busy
Paul has been extremely helpful with problems I have had with a loan company and helping me set up my life insurance , so that my family are secure when I pass on. Very helpful and Friendly always replies to messages. Five star service always.
Deborah, St Stephens
Paul was extremely efficient, he would always get back to me the same day with paperwork and with answers to my queries. He kept on top with chasing the mortgage company as I have a short time frame for completion. Paul made sure that I had the best deal and anything else I needed, he was very professional and I would highly recommend using Paul to anyone looking for a mortgage.
Jess, Basingstoke
Dealt with our property purchase in a timely and efficient manner. Oversaw every spanner that was thrown into the works by a very complicated purchase. Have gone back to him to help with our protection plan, would highly recommend.
Russell, Worcester
Very professional service, would definitely recommend
Victoria, Troon
Paul helped my wife and I remortgage our house. He made everything as easy as possible and was always available when we had a query at a very reasonable price too! We had issues with the lender due to my wife being on maternity leave but despite them being very difficult, Paul made it very easy for us and dealt with it all. Speaking from experience of dealing with other financial advisors I can say Paul is top drawer and we'll definitely be giving him a call again next time round.
Michael, Portreath

It's an absolute pleasure to recommend Paul to anyone who is looking for a financial adviser. My husband and I have known him for years; he has arranged two mortgages and two re-mortgages for us. He has also found the best life insurance policies for both of us when we were undecided. His knowledge and expertise are exceptional. He is always there to help in person and at the end of the line. We are looking forward to working with Paul on our next project in the near future. THANK YOU!
Agnes, Truro
Paul helped me with the re-mortgage and the service of his team was excellent.

Scott, Truro
A great financial adviser. Paul has helped us to re-mortgage and enable us to release capital from our residential property. It wasn't straight forward as it also involved foreign income. Paul had the knowledge and the patience to deal with our complicated situation and was always available to inform us of our progress. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to any of our friends and family and I am sure that in the near future we will use his expertise again. Thank you.

My job is working for you, guiding you through one step at a time, so you don’t have to worry about this financial jungle.

In todays complex and fast paced industry, receiving truly independent advice has never been more important.

In addition to being able to offer you this, having access to the whole of the financial market ensures you will get the best and most relevant advice possible.

Our services

There is an abundance of financial advice available so there is a lot of choice for you. However where I am different is that I want to help and guide you through the financial pit holes and opportunities, not just for the next 5 years, but for the next 30 – 40 years. It is evident that this is an aging industry and in need of the new generation coming through to help clients. If you don’t want to change advisers every few years and want someone to be there every step of the way, give me a call.
