Scott called me very soon after I requested help with some questions on IHT. He introduced himself to my satisfaction, quickly understood my questions and after checking some reference documentation, that he subsequently made available to me, provided clear answers.

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

Final salary opt out that had gone seriously wrong with my previous advisor. Funds awaiting investment for over 6 months as a result. Due to unique personal circumstances, I needed a broad, long term view on my options as well as the initial reinvestment in a SIPP.

How has Scott Gallacher helped you?

Fantastic initial advice (on external recommendation) that provided reassurance on the back of the poor experience I had with an offshore advisor and company. Subsequent challenges in transferring were patiently and professionally dealt with by Scott and his team at every step. Scott is always available to provide succinct, balanced and calm insights throughout the relationship.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Transfer completed and monies invested - yes. Growth and benefits still to be tracked and reviewed.

What could they have done better?

Genuinely nothing. I'm incredibly grateful to Scott and his team for their professional, accessible and authentic approach to client management. Looking forward to a long and hopefully financially beneficial relationship!

Scott's reply

Dear M, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and I'm happy that we were able to assist you in navigating the challenges you faced with your previous financial adviser.

It's our commitment to be accessible and provide balanced insights, and I'm pleased to hear that this has been reflected in our relationship so far.

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

The minefield of pension references and the mixture of pensions we had over the years. Scott provides us with a clear understanding of these and simplifies the outcomes whenever possible.

How has Scott Gallacher helped you?

Scott breaks everything down into elements of life which are pertinent later in your years. There is no 'looking back' and everything is focused on the future and the 'best' place to be considering all options. His advice brings a sense of 'calm' to my life, however, I'm still aware of the risks where investments are involved.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

My pension is in a great place. We are currently looking at my wife and early retirement. Scott is providing us with some thought provoking options to take on board for an important decision to be be made. Considering the outcome I've had, I can't see an issue looking forward.

What could they have done better?

I'm not sure if things could be better considering the global issues we currently face. I do see a number of other financial offerings which are tempting at about 8% or more but can't see that being sustained for a long term, but they are tempting and I would like to hear more from my advisor regarding the pros/cons of such offers. Particularly if the rates are tied/locked in for a fixed period and no penalties apply.

Scott's reply

Dear T, Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm delighted to hear that your pension is in a great place and that my guidance has brought a sense of calm to your financial planning. The focus on the future and consideration of all options is crucial for a well-rounded approach. I appreciate your interest in tempting financial offerings with higher rates. However, these generally come with higher risk but I will look into these for you. If there's ever anything more I can assist you with, or if new financial considerations arise, please feel free to reach out. Your satisfaction is essential, and I'm here to support you.

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

Moved to Leicester from Cheshire - the then Financial Adviser insisted we travel to him for the reviews. We had been transferred to him after ours retired.....no where near as good, so we changed for the better.

How has Scott Gallacher helped you?

Good thorough review - surprised us by telling us we needed to spend more!

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

More or less.

What could they have done better?

Nothing

Different person called, didn’t know who it was

Hi Joanna, Apologies for any confusion. I was unavailable, and my colleague Martin Stanley called you in my absence to ensure you were offered assistance. Apologies again if that was not made clear at the time. With kind regards Scott Gallacher

Was very impressed with Scott who was easy to talk to and listened attentively to what my requirements were.At no time did I feel in anyway pressured . Scott has an excellent knowledge of finance and I am sure that many could benefit from having him as their advisor.
