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

Darren was recommended to us by someone whose opinion we respect so we were hopeful of a great match from the start. We asked that our contact details be forwarded and received an intoductory email that same day - the tone of which was amiable and relaxed and with the offer of a no obligation meeting. Happy to invite Darren into our home this was time well invested for him to get to know us and assess our financial advice needs and for us to see how comfortable and confident we felt in going forward. Whilst certification, credentials and experience matter it was as important for us to ‘like’ the person that we were looking to team up with. First impressions? Delighted and looking forward to a long lasting, mutually beneficial, relationship.

How has Darren Goodall helped you since your last review?

My employment circumstances have changed and he has advised me on my retirement income / pension arrangements as well as on a proposed investment which I was considering. He gave me sound advice on my options and provided me with all the documentation I needed to progress with my chosen investment, providing these quickly and was always available for a call whenever I needed to speak to him.

Our financial situation is fairly stable so our six monthly meetings usually suffice but Darren is always there should l need any advice between meeting. I am not a particularly hands on investor and rely on Darren to keep informed.

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

In 2012 I lost my father, and so needed to invest my inheritance

How has Darren Goodall helped you?

Darren had been my fathers adviser for many years, after shopping around I decided that Darren was the right person to take advise from as he had been most helpful to my father, and so he has proved to be the right person for the job.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Thanks to Darren's work I have been very pleased with the outcome of the investments to date.

What could they have done better?

Nothing at all

How has Darren Goodall helped you since your last review?

I needed to make a change to my policy. I contacted Darren during the Christmas holiday break and a very speed response was received. The amendment was dealt with as soon as was possible. I was kept up to date with all the documents and received all the assistance I could need in order to make the necessary changes. Overall a good service was received and everything done in a quick friendly, professional manner.
