We’ve been with this financial adviser for nearly twenty years. Together we have navigated both calm and turbulent waters. It is comforting to know that our IFA is up-to-date with all the issues and is looking ahead on our behalf. We’re not looking to change.
I have known Karen for several years and have always taken her advice regarding my investments. Karen does not attempt to confuse investors with jargon I do not understand, she is straight talking, to the point and provides an excellent service.
Up until recently I always sorted out my own finances. But then I realised that matters were getting out of hand.
I had bits and pieces all over the place, much of it earning next to nothing in interest. I was losing control of my own money!
Karen has put that all right – even saved me some tax! I still have a spread of investments but these are now organised and easier to follow.
As far as finances go, Karen thinks logically, and with much knowledge. She explains clearly what she recommends and why, taking my own personality and requirements into consideration.
As a client I have complete confidence in her. I know I can ask for clarification at any time.
Financially I now have an organised mixture of money that is easily accessible, some bonds, and investments that are doing well.
Best of all I know that Karen is keeping her eye on them at all times as I don’t always get round to doing that!
