Money from property sale

How has Ben Middleton helped you?

Gave full advice on investment options

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

No. I withdrew my money because of a serious failure with the True Potential web platform. 20k disappeared on bank transfer . Halifax fraud office were involved locating the payment.

What could they have done better?

The True Potential web platform is prone to system errors and needs replaced. Ben, the financial adviser, did a good job except that he lost his cool because of my reaction to the system problem.
