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

I needed advice regarding pension provision and specific advice with regard to the Lifetime Allowance. I also needed guidance on investments.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan was excellent throughout. He helped me to understand what I needed to know, despite the fact that I knew very little to begin with. His advice was measured, comprehensive and personalised. I always felt he was keen to find out what I needed and then worked to achieve that aim. He enabled me to make major decisions with confidence. He was patient, extremely knowledgeable and highly professional. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Absolutely. His advice has been invaluable and has saved me lots of hassle and stress, as well as being financially advantageous.

What could they have done better?

I genuinely don't know how he could have done a better job.

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

Thirty years ago when I retired I had savings I wished to invest and, having no expertise in investing I employed an IFA to advise me. Some ten years later I decided to change my IFA and on the advice of a friend I approached Nathan Harris. By then I had inherited a substantial sum and, following discussion of my objectives with Nathan decided to invite him to become my IFA.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan suggested investment platforms which he felt were appropriate to my investment objectives and after discussing these as well as other matters such as my approach to risk he helped me to select one and advised me on the transfer of my portfolio.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, my portfolio has appreciated in line with the level of risk with which I feel comfortable.

What could they have done better?

I feel that the service I receive with regular reviews of the economic outlook and recommendations of switches which demonstrate to me that my portfolio is kept under appraisal is helpful and sufficient to my needs. Nathan's team also keep in touch and are always available if I feel that I need assistance. I have no recommendations for improvements.

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

In the first instance we were looking for someone to help with a mortgage on a new property. Nathan was recommended by a friend. Following on from this I needed advice for a private pension plan to be set up, which again Nathan gave good sound financial advice and the private pension was set up. Recently as I am no 63 I wanted advice on my other various frozen pension funds to make the most of the funds values before I retire again Nathan and his team have set this up for me.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan was very helpful going through the various mortgage options / companies and recommended the final broker we used to finance our new home. Nathan also recommended AVIVA as my private pension company and has supported me by arranging two of my frozen pension funds to be re-invested for (hopefully) a better return in a few years time.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, so far so good.

What could they have done better?

If I am honest I do struggle with my annual tax return which I leave to the last minute every year as I dread completing the same. I'm sure if this was a service the Lothbury Group offered, Nathan could have helped.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan is an excellent listener, in that he hears the message that you are trying to impart and concentrates his efforts on delivering the service that you require, rather than advising on a product that he thinks that you might need. This is in stark contrast to some other financial advisors that I have used. He explains the products well and makes absolutely clear when he thinks that an existing scheme can be bettered and in what timescale.

What could they have done better?

I cannot think of any required improvements.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan understands and adapts to our family's evolving needs very well. He is always prepared to advise on & help out with all aspects of our financial arrangements that are beyond the core products of pensions & protection - in other words not just limited to areas where a commission is paid. Nathan is always prepared to share his contacts for other advisors that compliment the core financial aspects. Nathan is always prepared to fit in around our schedule - such as evening meetings.

Nothing to add at present!

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan talks to me on my level, never makes me feel uncomfortable. I have direct access to a him via a mobile phone whenever I feel I need to discuss something. He has demonstrated amazing skills and confidence, especially over the last few years. He seems to take a very personal interest and so creates a bond of trust. In financial terms, I have never felt more safe or confident. Nathan will always go the extra mile in guidance and explanation through any jargon to ensure that I really know what is happening with my pension.

What could they have done better?

I would appreciate e-mail contact now and then, just to keep in touch, a kind of informal short run down of general performance, other than just the annual reviews. The postal reviews are a bit stuffy, especially if you are a little 'blinded' by numbers.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan has been our family Financial Adviser for the past 6 years. During this time he has offered us timely, astute and comprehensive advise concerning a range of policies and investments to the benefit of our entire family. This has incorporated investments enabling our youngest son to progress through Independent school, our elder sons to study at University, arranging pension funds for each and advice regarding wills. Unlike previous advisers we have encountered Nathan has singled himself out due to his proactive approach regarding our finances and policies. As a result our finances have been resilient when the markets have suffered numerous fluctuations due to the fact Nathan's knowledge ans expertise has enabled our investments to be in the right place at the right time. Nathan is a hard working, conscientious, reliable and trustworthy advisor who has given us peace of mind and provided us with first class returns on our investments. He is a very approachable and likeable young man who takes the interests of his clients very seriously. We have no reservation in wholeheartedly recommending Nathan to you.

I have know Nathan for over 5 years and have always found him to be very straight talking. I the past I have often found financial advisors difficult to understand as it is a world of jargon! Nathan has the ability to explain in plain English and I have found his advice so far to be sound.

He advises and implements our investments in accordance with our attitude to risk. We are regularly kept up to date with the current situation. He is easily contactable and responds quickly to requests.

What could they have done better?

In so far that he or his colleagues assist with our returns to HMRC, we often seem up against HMRC's deadlines. However, it has to be said that we are sometimes tardy with providing the necessary information.

How has Nathan Harris helped you?

Nathan is extremely conscientious and delivered advice to us for a wide ranging audience, some of whom (despite advanced years) had never had any dealings with pensions or financial advice. Everyone was left absolutely clear as to their options. Requests for information are always dealt with EXTREMELY promptly and in full - I have never had to chase anything. A scheme was found perfect for our requirements which ensured our transfer costs were zero and ongoing annual fees much lower than anticipated. Personal visits to all our staff and personal communication whenever our staff require it are forthcoming and readily given.

What could they have done better?

I cannot think of anything about Nathan's service that has not been outstanding.

Nathan always delivers sound advice and is totally aware of what's happening in the market place. He is the first person I call when I need advice . When you run your own business you are very short of time to be aware of the most efficient ways of investing that's why I use Nathan.

Nathan has been our Financial Adviser since 2005 and his advice has been outstanding and our investments have always been handled well even in the most trying of times. We have been put at ease in our discussions about our circumstances and he has discussed all aspects with openness and honesty. He has always been easily contactable, even at the weekends if we have ever had any concerns and most importantly we trust him and his decisions implicitly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Nathan as our Financial Adviser. Luisa - Surrey
