Paul has been our financial adviser for many years and has helped us with general investments and pension provision. We have always found him to be approachable, trustworthy and reliable. He understands our attitude to risk and our need to be cautious investors and has explained thoroughly and in simple terms any possible changes that might affect us. He keeps us regularly updated with our investments and is always available to give us advice on any other financial problems which may occur. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Howard Bullock, explains the whole process in a language I understand without using too much jargon. He is completely transparent when it comes to charges for the work they do. He is super efficient and paperwork is completed immediately and should I have a query I just email and I am met with an answer straight away.
Paul has proved to be approachable, responsive and willing to go the extra mile. These are difficult times to find a decent return on savings and investments and my final judgement of Paul will be based on the return we receive over a period of 3 to 5 years. From my dealings with Paul I have formed a positive view of his ability and I would be happy to recommend him to others. His patience and tolerance of my many uninformed questions has been greatly appreciated.
I found Paul not to be pushy and explained the various options we could have with full illustrations. He always had plenty of time for our questions.Would 100% recommend him.
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.
I initially spoke to Howard in 2011 regarding some funds we had sitting in a savings account earning little or no interest. As my knowledge of investments was limited Howard explained everything clearly so I totally understood where and why it would be a good idea to invest my money in certain areas. He gave us variousWe were told what the costs were in total prior to signing any paperwork so that we knew exactly what we were paying for.Since then I have used the services of Howard Bullock on several occasions and would have no hesitation in recommending him and already have done.
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.
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.
Howard is very down to earth so you understand what he is telling you and very honest so you know that he is telling you what is best for you and not him!
Although we have only known Paul for around 18 months during this time we have always found him to be not only a very likeable person but one that is very easy to talk to, patient and willing to explain information at a level we can understand. That’s very important to us! Once that he understood both our attitudes to risk and the reason why we had consulted him in the first place he was soon able to reassure us and come up with a suitable plan. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to someone in the same situation.
