Personal
Financial Advice

We offer comprehensive personal financial advice for individuals looking to maximise the return from their investments.

Who are you?

Generally, you’ve taken a DIY approach to your finances. You’ve dabbled in investments, set up numerous pension plans and perhaps even taken a chance on some higher risk plans in the past. You wouldn’t say you’re a financial expert, but so far, you’ve been confident in your choices.

Now, however, you’re questioning whether your money is working hard enough in today’s volatile, low-return world. You’re worried that you’re no longer ahead of the curve where your cash and assets are concerned. You need a second opinion – and, eventually, you want to leave the management of your financial affairs in somebody else’s capable hands.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I contacted VouchedFor for a free initial consultation, and Paul contacted me quickly, in response. His manner was very friendly and professional - I felt very at ease talking to him. If I require further advice in the future, I would definitely consider contacting Paul.

  • Very helpful and took onboard my needs of reaching out to a Financial Adviser. He took time to listen and give feedback on what my possible options were. I am currently digesting the advice/feedback he gave and Paul has kindly offered to assist me with the subject matter we discussed in a future call. I am grateful for Paul's time and patience. A very switched on individual and talked to me in terminology that I understood - didn't blind me with science, which was the result I had wished for.
