Customer reviews & testimonials

Ian always provides accurate and well reasoned advice as to how best to proceed with any financial matters that we have consulted him about.

Excellent. In depth analysis of my situation with regard to maximising income from existing pension funds. Very good advice provided.

Ian took the details of all pensions & sorted everything, taking away the headache of not knowing what to do. I am satisfied with his advice.

He has a fantastic ability to describe even the most complicated financial scenarios in layman’s terms. Patient, extremely hard working.
