What our clients say
“My wife and I have known Tony as an advisor for more than 18 years. We have always found him to be polite and easy to talk to. He will willingly listen to and understand our financial needs and explain things in plain English without the need for jargon. Over the years he has recommended a range of investments that have met our needs for both income and growth and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”
Keith and Cynthia, Knowle, Solihull
“Mr Tony Thursfield has provided excellent, clearly-understandable financial advice to myself, for several years now. He has guided me though many simple and complex situations, both with reference to personal and business matters. He possesses an almost unique ability, knack and acumen to make complex financial matters easily understandable to the uninitiated; finding solutions in many challenging situations. Indeed, I could not recommend Tony highly enough and I will be using his services for many years to come.”
Dr E Forsythe, Tamworth, Staffordshire
‘’Tony has been my financial advisor for over 25 years providing financial review and advice, life insurance, critical illness, pension, wills and mortgage polices. Over this time Tony has not only provided an excellent service which has helped secure a bright future for myself and family but become a friend of the family and now provides the same quality service to my two sons and other family members. Tony is good humoured, a great listener and we have always felt comfortable in his company…….No hard sales pitches here, just a relaxed chat about your requirements at a time and place to suit you. Being an independent advisor Tony will research the market to provide the best plan available explain it in great detail and give you time to come to a decision not push you towards one particular provider. I have no hesitation in recommending Tony and have no doubt he will provide you with the same excellent service as he has given myself and family’’
Dean W., Dudley, West Midlands
‘’I have known Tony for nearly 25 years in a professional capacity. As a chartered
accountant, I have been exclusively recommending Tony to my clients for financial
services which have complemented my own accountancy services. He has
provided quick reliable and expert advice to many varied clients over the years. Not
only do I fully recommend his services to you, but I personally use his advice and
services for my own financial service needs.’’ - J F Socci FCA

Hi there. Thanks for looking at my profile. My name is Tony and I have been in financial services for nearly 25 years. In the past I have also worked in various technical roles, including compliance and pension review.
I work, although not exclusively, around the Cannock, South Staffs and North Birmingham area.
Many of my existing clients have been with me for between 10 and 20 years. I am now doing work for the children of some of these clients ….which is a little strange at times.
I also work with the clients of professional connections such as accountants.
Please call me for a chat on <phone number hidden> if you would like to talk to me in person or email <email address hidden>
Please read some of my testimonies and contact me when you are ready.
