Ross is clear, concise, knowledgeable and focused on my objectives. He clearly uses his resources well and presents up to date information and changes in the financial landscape to add more value to the work he is doing on my behalf. His interpersonal skills are outstanding and he is a pleasure to work with. If I could give a 6 star rating and an 11 point satisfaction score I would! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is available and responsive at all times and proactively looks after my interests.

Ross is spot on in my book. Since we had to use video conferencing due to the lockdown situation, it all went smoothly and although I had reservations initially, it was better than having to take time off work or rush through traffic to get to a face-to-face meeting. The informal setting really worked for me.

We ended up talking about all of my various pension pots and investments and his advice was superb: clear, balanced and very much tailored to my preferences and attitudes. He comes to a location of your choice for the face to face discussions and keeps in regular touch by email in between times. He also did all of the leg work in terms of transfers to the new platform he recommended. 100% recommended!
