How has Tony Byrne helped you since your last review?

Was very supportive when I needed to use some of my pension for health reasons. Was able to reassure me that my pension was still in a good place going forward which was very reassuring.

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

I have used Tony and Wealth & Tax for many years, having inherited some investments from a parent, and then finding myself managing them badly in the 2007/8 financial crisis.

How has Tony Byrne helped you?

He has helped me to keep my funds in less volatile investments, and to manage their long-term performance so that they retain their value, plus a bit, and make sensible use of ISAs, SIPPs, etc.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

On the whole, yes. Obviously the last few years have been challenging for everyone, but over the long term my 'retain value, plus a bit' goal has been achieved.

What could they have done better?

The investment platforms they have used tend to produce rather over-whelming quantities of paper reporting, while at the same time still managing to make it quite hard work for the non-professional investor to keep an eye on performance - quanitity of information at the cost of simple clarity,

How has Tony Byrne helped you since your last review?

We've had the regular annual financial review, which really focused on the risk/return level, given the difficult market. Our situation has been stable during the year to the last review, so there have been little actions needed. Our focus is on capital growth of our investments, and the market conditions mean this has been under expectation. Tony promptly addressed questions regarding variations in gains between the various pension pots in our investment; unfortunately the outcome was not in our favour. Tony checked that we have essential protections in place - Wills, Power of Attorney etc. and these are all done, with no changes expected soon.

I was running a private company specialising in electrical installation and servicing and due to time constraints needed someone to deal with my personal finances.

How has Tony Byrne helped you?

Tony reviewed our savings and investments and discussed our longterm objectives he then advised on achievable options, he has continued to manage our investments, assisted us in updating our wills and LPA's and continued to assist us in maximising our retirement portfolio.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

We have been very happy with the efforts Tony has put in to consolidate our portfolio and manage it for a number of years which has resulted in a portfolio growth rate which would have been unlikely without professional management. .

We would appreciate a consolidated written annual review of our annual meeting, past years performance and future investment plans.

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

I was looking at the potential of retiring as early as possible, 55 preferably, and wanted to understand the feasibility of that given my pension position at the time.

How has Tony Byrne helped you?

From the initial meeting, and from being a client, Tony has clearly outlined the possibilities available to me taking into consideration my personal circumstances and long term view. I've mostly concentrated on pensions because of my personal position, but there has been discussions, plans and advice on all financial aspects, including trusts, tax planning, wills and LPAs. This continues to happen such that I can understand decisions within a whole-of-life cashflow position and look at a variety of what-if scenarios before making any decisions. I've never had a problem arranging for financial advice when needed, nor making changes as circumstances evolve. Tony has been able to show me what is possible to do with my pension money and impact that choices might have. It's all been extremely useful.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes: Tony was able to show me that I could comfortably retire early without impacting my standard of living. He was able to do so whilst also showing me how to take advantage of current legislation to best provide for my wife in case of my early death.

What could they have done better?

Nothing really: within the interactions I've had with Tony things have gone well and smoothly. Any actions from a meeting are followed up promptly.

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

Approaching retirement age and pensions were available to be transferred or taken. I needed to understand the best way of utilising multiple pension schemes that had accumulated during working lifetime.

How has Tony Byrne helped you?

I was able to to consolidate all my pensions into a flexible drawdown which I was able to to start taking at a time of my choosing. This gives me flexibility to return to work if I choose and reduce/stop my drawdown or continue with my retirement.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

The outcome is completely what I hoped for as I have a very tax efficient way of drawing money and enough pension available to continue my retirement.

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

20 years ago I was made redundant and I received a good redundancy package. I was too young to retire so I decided to get professional advice to invest my money to get the best return until I retired. I also had some money invested in a Building society.

How has Tony Byrne helped you?

Since contacting Wealth and Tax Management 20 years ago, I believe Tony has always given me good and sound advice on my investments. I have seen my investments grow at a better rate than that of Building societies or banks. There have been ups and downs in the markets but Tony has taught me to ride this as in the long run, the markets usually recover.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes.

What could they have done better?

I believe they have done well. I am pleased with their services
