How has Ashley Hewitt helped you since your last review?

I had a recent annual review with Ashley to look at a number of savings products and two small pensions I have in place with a well-known national pension provider. I needed some advice from Ashley in view of the current Economic crisis and how some poor performing markets have affected the products I have in my investment portfolio. Ashley was able to give me advice and reassurance about the pension products and the savings and investments I have with other providers. His advice was clear and concise and it was very clear to me that he had done his research prior to our meeting. He even took a call from America that morning about one of my investments ,to get the most up to date information which he could then feed on to me. I was extremely satisfied and impressed with the information and advice I received from Ashley and would have no hesitation in recommending him to friends and family and to anyone needing financial advice.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

In January 2020, at the age of 55, I was ill health retired and very quickly found myself swamped by the various options open to me with regard to buying a pension product.

How has Ashley Hewitt helped you?

I had a number of pension pots from 4 different employers over the years and Ashley's expertise was absolutely invaluable to me. Through his experience and knowledge of pension products, Ashley was able to find me a product which delivered an extremely comfortable pension, which has given me the financial security I was seeking for the time I have left. This security is extremely important to me, which was a point Ashley understood and was sympathetic towards. Ashley is extremely professional and knowledgeable but also has a personal side and was very supportive during all my meetings with him. He also advised me on a number of financial investments and I have regular annual reviews with him to ensure that my investments are working well for me.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

The pension product Ashley found for me delivered an annual income more than 3 times greater than any of the traditional products I had access to. Without Ashley's help, I know I would not have been as financially secure as I am now. All the investment products Ashely recommended are delivering the projected profits and I am very happy with how they are progressing.

What could they have done better?

I cannot think of one thing Ashley could have improved on. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone looking to invest or looking to buy a pension product.

How has Ashley Hewitt helped you since your last review?

The regular cash payments from the immediate care annuity that Ashley arranged for my father improved his quality of life enormously during his final years of life as I was able to pay for external care for him. Ashley has always been approachable, friendly and professional in his financial dealings. He assessed my attitude to investment risk and advised me on the correct level of investment in the best financial product on the market to meet my needs. The further cash funds I invested on his excellent advice covered the initial financial outlay for the annuity in a timely manner. I have always paid for IFA advice by commission and Ashley's charges are transparent and very good value for money. I highly recommend Ashley as an IFA provider of financial advice regarding immediate care annuities.

Retirement and return to work part time.

How has Ashley Hewitt helped you?

Ashley helped me with advice on investing a lump sum of money from my work pension.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Very pleased the lump sum of money is invested safely with a nice return.

What could they have done better?

Ashley assessed my personal circumstances and taking into account my wishes and needs tailored a plan to invest my money which I felt safe and confident with. He explained the types of investments and risks, ensuring I understood and felt comfortable with plans. He encouraged me to contact him anytime if I’d had any concerns or change of circumstances and came to see me for a yearly review. Ashley is very professional and knowledgeable. This is the first time I have needed the services of a financial advisor and I cannot see how Ashley could have done better, I am very pleased with his advice and the work he has done and his ongoing reviews.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

Generally my age, I am approximately 6 years away from hopefully retiring and felt that I needed advice at this very important time in my life.

How has Ashley Hewitt helped you?

Along with many others I am not particularly savvy when it comes to Pensions and was worried that I could not afford to just let my pensions "drift", but Ashley explained everything in plain English and made everything much easier to understand.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes and more. He gave me what I thought was very good advice on my pensions particularly on one which had basically become stagnant, I acted on his and this has already show benefits.

What could they have done better?

I can't really fault Ashley Hewitt and so I am unable to offer him any constructive suggestions. I have alway found him very pleasant, always accommodating, willing to meet me even in my lunch break from work in order to get my situations sorted. Would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
