Feedback from our clients

Howard explains what he is going to do in a calm, confident and readily understandable way. He is excellent at explaining exactly what he is proposing to do and how much it is going to cost. Whatever I wish to discuss with Howard, he has the ability to give all the reassurance I need.

The last adviser i had was very friendly and easy going but i felt that i made most of the decisions , Howard is also very easy to get on with but has come up with suggestions that fit with my plan.I like to feel that my advisor is listening to me and then together we can agree on the best way forward, i have found Howard very good in this respect.

Howard consistently offers a broad range of financial services – all of which he seems to have a deep understanding. The advice I have received has been tailor made to my own personal situation and it has been this individual attention to detail, coupled with a wide range of products , that sets Howard apart from any other financial advisers I have come across.

Paul provided impartial, honest and considered advice after listening and considering my needs. His advice proved to be accurate, but most importantly he responded when he said he would and did what he said he would do! This is a basic thing – but not often carried out! I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul in the future.

Thoroughly impressed with Howards advice and whole professional manner. He clearly explained all of the options to me and educated me through the processes. I feel confident that he is looking after my best interests and will continue to refer him to my family, friends and colleagues.

When, like me, your investment knowledge is limited the first things you want from an IFA is someone whose honesty, experience and advice you feel you can trust. If after that you get to like them as a person who shares similar values with you, as I have and do, then the association should prove to be fruitful. I recommended Paul to both my sons when they needed mortgage advice and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
