What our clients say
Martin has helped us to understand our finances and our financial options. He is thorough and straight-forward in his approach. He has also shown tenacity in dealing with the consolidation of many small employer based pension pots.
Richard and Jane Dallaway, Brighton
I have been using Martin for my financial advice for nearly 10 years now. I have found his advice to be professional, he understands my goals, and most important I can understand what we are looking to achieve, which is great in this ever increasingly complicated area. I can just sit back with the knowledge that my investments are in safe hands.
David Butt, Angmering
Martin O'Brien was appointed by ILG in 2013 to help us get ahead of the upcoming change in pension legislation to auto enrolment and roll this out through 2014. We have quite a young workforce and wanted them to really consider their pensions and take the subject seriously. We also wanted a scheme in place that was superior to the government suggested scheme to help our people save for their retirement.
Martin managed a number of open days and workshops and worked really closely with our staff across all our sites. Most importantly he made the topic simple to understand cutting through all the jargon and communicating with great hand outs and illustrations. He covered the subject at their level making them fully aware of their options and what it could mean for their future.
The result was amazing with more than double the take up on the company pension scheme than we expected. Martin is very easy to work with, open and focused. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martins services to anyone.
