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

We had been with a large nationwide investment company where our investments were doing fairly poor but their charges were extortionate- we also had very very little correspondence from them and the 6 monthly reviews never happened. We wanted to find somewhere, where we weren’t just a series of account numbers.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Absolutely we have.

How has Henry Philpott helped you?

Henry has navigated the smooth transfers of our investments and SIP, which at times has not been easy when trying to get the previous investment companies to play ball but he managed it, keeping us informed at all times.

Because we use an investment platform and therefore have only one annual review, we would feel more confident if Henry checked in with us more frequently (at the 6 months mark) to ask how we felt about our investments and feedback he has. It would make the service a bit more tailored/personal.
