What our clients say
TWM Ltd have provided long term guidance to maximise income with no reduction in capital. Some 15 years ago my father died and I needed some professional advice to manage my portfolio to maximise income and minimise tax liability on my projected early retirement from teaching. Steve Thompson has achieved my aims such that my income is approximately the same as when I was working despite the significant global and domestic problems in the financial sector without reducing capital in 2008. His regular reviews are always delivered in a friendly manner without ever being “pushy” and he is now well aware of my attitude to risk. I have been pleased to recommend him to two other friends and am confident we will have a continued relationship as I approach my later years in life.
Stephen, retired teacher, Kings Heath
The number and complexity of the options that were available to me and my wife when it came to retirement meant there were difficult choices to be made. It would have been impossible to arrive at the best choice without expert advice. I'm really pleased that I used TWM to guide me through to the best decision.
Adrian, retired Health and Safety manager, Halesowen
These few words express our appreciation of the advice and investment guidance we have received over the years from Steve Thompson. He has regularly reviewed our investments, ensured that we have sufficient income for our needs, kept us aware of impending tax changes and channeled investments into ISA's. We have particularly valued his quick response to any requests for information and his help in disentangling reams of withdrawal paperwork. His grasp of complex legislation has enabled him to explain investment options simply and he has always offered us options from which we can choose to match our personal selection criteria.
Brian, retired director, Walsall
I have known Steve at TWM for nearly ten years now and he has helped my family build up a decent portfolio of pensions and investments. I have recommended him to both professional colleagues and personal friends over the years and would not hesitate to do so again. He is extremely professional, approachable, very knowledgeable and explains financial products in lay-mans terms - which are qualities I would expect in a good financial advisor.
Martin, accountant, Cradley Heath
First class service from day one, and for the last 6 years.
Graham, retired factory worker, Rowley Regis
