Having achieved the APFS designation, advisers can go onto to achieve this recognisable benchmark of quality and ethical practice for financial services professionals, elevating financial planning and advice in the public eye to the same standing as other Chartered professions. The holder must demonstrate a combination of experience, financial qualifications, ongoing educational activity (continuous professional development) and ethical behaviour.
What our clients say
Wren Sterling made the most of my modest pension pot, enabling me to semi-retire as soon as I got my state pension and giving me time to do other things besides work.
Jennifer Wolvers, Nottingham
Over the past few months I have been working with Allan Kinnaird to consolidate various pensions from my previous employers in to one good quality pension provider.
Allan explained the process very clearly, step by step. This gave me a good understanding of the costs, investment risks and benefits. I now have a much simplified pension portfolio that has allowed me to plan my retirement, confident that I will be financially secure.
I want to thank Allan for his time and expertise and look forward to working with him and Wren Sterling for many years to come.
Robert Surgener, Scotland
Brian Astridge has been my financial adviser for over twenty years. Over that time, my financial demands have been many and varied, and often complex, but in all cases his help has been invaluable and immensely practical. I would recommend his services without scruple.
David Parker, Weybridge
Clive helped my family at a particularly stressful time, when my father had a second stroke and needed to move into a nursing home. He arranged to travel to meet my mother at very short notice and presented her with a clear and concise set of recommendations to help meet her objectives. His advice was invaluable and obviously came from years of experience and a detailed knowledge of this complex area. I have already recommended Clive to a close friend and would be happy to recommend him again.
