Please provide a brief comment about your experience with Alexander

My wife and I recently contacted Alexander for financial planning advice as I am rapidly approaching retirement. Whilst not being able to provide advice on my defined benefit pension schemes, he was able to provide me with background insight around pension, financial and tax legislation which has really helped crystalise my thinking with these. However, both my wife and I have additional personal pension schemes and this is where Alexander has been able to assist us. For our first meeting, Alexander had prepared a performance tracker of our current plans versus the market context which was very insightful. Having shared our overall financial situation, our financial aspirations for our retirement and our attitude to risk, Alexander will now generate an independent tailored plan for our personal pension investments. From a personal perspective, Alexander is clearly both highly qualified and knowledgeable in the field of wealth management / financial planning. He is also extremely personable and a good, engaging communicator. We have had dealings in the past with Forrester Boyd and, have always found the company to be very professional, reliable and adept in providing bespoke financial advice. However, for us trust is a key determining factor when looking at financial planning and, both Alexander and Forrester Boyd have our absolute faith. We are looking forward to working with Alexander in the coming years.

Having a number of private Pensions, coupled to savings and just becoming a Pensioner, posed a set of confusing points on which I needed clear, accurate and efficient options made available. Alex is a true Professional, his calm, relaxed and highly competent manner simplified all of my queries to the point where I left much more confident in my direction. I am hugely grateful to Alex for his time and dealing with me and I have no hesitation in endorsing his skillset and experience to others seeking financial guidance.

Alex was very welcoming and very quickly put us at ease. We talked about all different aspects of our business needs. Alex quickly realised we needed the professional guidance from an accountant and introduced us to Philip George who seems very knowledgeable in his field. The meeting on the whole was very informative. Hoping for our business to grow in a healthy way as a result of using the expertise of Forrester Boyd and their team.

Wanted advice and support to invest for financial future and pensions.

How has Alexander Munn helped you?

Alexander has explained in detail how our funds can be invested to obtain the best outcome at the present time and also for opportunities in the future. He explains this using good examples of how this will support us in our future plans.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

In specific areas the outcome has been positive but unfortunately owing to the market situation at the present time, not all investments have given the expected growth.

What could they have done better?

At this point I would not propose any areas that could have been done better.

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

Various small amounts of money in different funds/bonds, etc., for both myself and husband. We looked for a safe, secure company which would manage our future funding and Forrestor Boyd helped.

How has Alexander Munn helped you?

He has gone that extra mile in supporting and explaining - in great detail should we need it, or in layman's terms as to how best our money and investments according to our lifestyle and future requirements. Sadly my husband recently passed away and Alex helped enormously with the first tranche of 'requirements' necessary to shut down and manage a lifestyle for me.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Still working on this.

What could they have done better?

Nothing, other than possibly making a note to stay in touch regularly - even once a month.

When I retired 10 years ago I needed advice to handle my private pension fund . I chose Forrester Boyd as they had been the accountants for the firm of solicitors I was a partner in. They had always given sound and understandable advice and I felt confident that their financial Services would also be good. This has certainly been the case.

How has Alexander Munn helped you?

Alex Munn took over my account several years ago when my previous advisor left. since then his service and advice has been super. I trust his judgement completely. I do not follow the investment markets in sufficient depth to have confidence so feel very reassured that Alex has always given consistent and excellent advice. He is very professional but also always very approachable and friendly. He also has an excellent support team.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

I have been delighted with the way the fund has performed through the time Alex has advised. These have been challenging times and the fund has dipped and then recovered in various circumstances but I have always taken the long term view and never worried about short term changes. I do not suffer sleepless nights as a result of Alex's competence !

What could they have done better?

I cannot think of anything.

Alexander's reply

Thank you for taking the time to provide such detailed feedback of your experiences with Forrester Boyd, and myself personally. I'll look forward to continuing to work together.

Prior to Alexander there were several years where my portfolio wasn't being managed. Partly this was my fault for not getting in touch, but equally a chase up and review would have been good. This has all changed with Alexander might I add.
