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

I left full time employment with a good pension and needed to ensure that my self employed income could be deployed to provide for a safe retirement.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes. I asked Andrew to help me plan for about ten years of work before being able to access my retirement savings - turned out to be nine years of work and can access my retirement savings exactly as planned.

How has Andrew Flowers helped you?

By ensuring there was a solid base to my financial planning to meet my goals; by reminding me of the importance of an appropriate level of protection in self employment through various insurances - without ever giving a hard sell for any specific policy; on at least two occasions by providing me with advice that resulted in paying less tax or ensuring that my National Insurance contributions were at the required level; by providing me with other contacts in the financial planning world (e.g. for capital gains tax advice) who have proved to be very helpful. And of course by having a good chat about skiing, dogs and holidays!

What could they have done better?

Not sure there is anything obvious - I have found my interactions with Andrew and the team at Vizion Wealth to be excellent.

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

I had quite a large amount of money just sitting in bank accounts and very little financial knowledge but knew I needed to put it to some use.

How has Andrew Flowers helped you?

I had several meetings with Andrew discussing what risks I was willing to take and what I wanted in terms of financial security in the future and over four hours (two separate meetings ) he explained various options to me in very easy to understand language (I'm definitely a words not numbers person) and then created a plan for me that fitted everything that I was hoping to achieve without taking more risks than I was willing to take.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

I've just had my first six month review and I'm very happy with the outcomes thus far. I wish I'd got in touch sooner.

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

Once retired I realised I needed Professional advice and help to look after the pension pot and maintain that pot to ensure I lived comfortably for the rest of my life. Initially I went with one of the large platform providers, I then realised they are all things to all people. I knew of Andrew so I went with Vizion Wealth, where I have received excellent service and personal care.

How has Andrew Flowers helped you?

He has helped steer my finances, through good and importantly the turbulent times(downside). The resources Vizion are able to employ have kept my investments sheltered during the rocky ride of 2022. The investments are constantly checked and changes made to the funds to ensure any losses are limited but better still the funds grow.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Once again 2022, has been a roller coaster ride for investments / funds, so the outcome for this year has been pretty good.

Its difficult to judge, I guess we would all like to do better! Maybe be on top of poor performing fund managers and initiate switches more timely

Please provide a brief comment about your experience with Andrew

The Vouchedfor entry for Andrew (or rather Vizion Wealth) says he can provide Specialist Pension Transfer advice. This is not the case.. My contact with Vizion was a complete waste of my and their time....

Andrew's reply

Dear John, We apologise if there was a misunderstanding with the services we provide. As a firm myself and my business partner both hold the pension transfer specialist qualification which is displayed on our Vouchedfor profile. However, due to changes in the professional indemnity insurance market, maintaining an authorisation for defined benefit advice has become near on impossible for smaller independent financial advisers. Therefore, we now partner with larger defined benefit specialist to provide this advice where prospective clients are looking for independent defined benefit advice which was provided to you. We are surprised you have decided to leave a 1 star review in this scenario, however, we have taken onboard your feedback and will remove our pension transfer specialist listing from the Vouchedfor website.

I had investments with St.James' Place. I explored the possibility of using an independent Financial Advisor in my local area and decided upon Andrew Flowers of Vizion Wealth. It meant I could see and speak to my financial advisor. Although not entirely unhappy with the St. James Place, I was made aware by Vizion Wealth that my investments with St. James' Place were limited to a smaller availability of investments than those offered by Vizion Wealth.

How has Andrew Flowers helped you?

Enormously. Andrew Flowers (Vizion Wealth) has gone through all of my financial affairs with a fine tooth comb and, more especially, will continue to do so to keep my affairs in order and advise me accordingly.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Given the unfortunate global and UK financial situation right now it is not possible to predict. However, I have every confidence Andrew Flowers (Vizion Wealth) are working in my best interests.

What could they have done better?

I offer up no criticism, only praise so far since joining In August 2022

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

I needed help with my finances, I knew with the complexities of managing money, it would be better to put this in a safe pair of hand from a trusted advisor, taking out the worry of trying to manage it myself. Obviously we all want our money to grow, but it's having trust in your advisor that is just as important.

How has Andrew Flowers helped you?

I knew Andrew from a previous employ which was a large "supermarket" platform business where my money was invested, yes there was some security in this type of business but it felt you were a number. When Andrew started his own business I waited some time for him to establish, I then migrated over to his company. What was I looking for ? a company who would give a personal touch and make you feel comfortable, one that you believe are honest and trustworthy. One that would keep you informed with updates to your financial position and also supply you with newsletters about the markets and company news about the team. Finally you want to see your money GROW, I get all of this from Andrew and his team at Vizion, a complete rounded service for which I'm very satisfied.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Despite the economic challenges of the past year and months my finances are in good order and keeping pace with my initial investments after drawing down, so yes I am happy with the outcome to date. Andrew is building a good company, employing good staff across all disciplines with the right levels of expertise.

What could they have done better?

Not only to keep my fund investments above their various benchmarks, but to challenge Vizion to go one step further to pick funds that would be star performers in their relative fields. To ensure all charges are kept to a minimal.

Andrew gave us a clear and exceptionally thorough breakdown of how we were in a position to achieve our aims. His general approachability combined with a detailed explanation of our position gave us the confidence to put our plan in to action. It is refreshing to find an adviser with a no nonsense attitude to explaining charges with full transparency.

Despite the recent turbulence in the markets we feel that our investments have been handled with professional expertise and that we are in a good position to achieve our aims. We have been most reassured to know that our portfolio has been in safe hands.
