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

We received an Inheritance which was to be used for our retirement but was sitting in a low yield savings account. We needed advice on the best way to utilise the money to give us a retirement income. This included general investment advice and how to place the money to take advantage of any yearly entitlements we would be due. We had never invested money before so needed to know that we were in good hands.

How has Andy Norrington helped you?

Andy was extremely professional throughout the whole process. He went to great lengths to explain all possibilities available to us, he listened to our wants and needs and gave us all the information needed to allow us to make an informed choice. He was always available to answer any questions and talk through anything that we were unsure about. He took the stress out of having to place this money in the most efficient way and organized everything for us. At all times we were kept up to date with easy to understand but comprehensive reports allowing us to have the best outcome for our situation. We also wanted to have someone who would continue to look after our interests once the original investments had been made.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Absolutely. We are very happy with the plan that we have settled on and know that we have Andy with us if we ever need any advice or explanation. We can now go into our retirement feeling comfortable with the decisions we have made

What could they have done better?

We are completely satisfied with the journey from start to finish and know that we are in safe, capable hands going forward. We cannot thank him enough for his support.

Early retirement.

How has Andy Norrington helped you?

Andy is a very good Financial Advisor with excellent knowledge of investment markets and financial products. Prior to coming up with a plan and a strategy to make my money work harder for me, he spent a great deal of time and effort to better understand my circumstances, priorities and risk appetite. He then came up with an investment strategy that suited my lifestyle and future ambitions.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

If you, like me, have not spent a lot of time managing your finances, it can be daunting to understand complicated financial definitions, specialist terms and make sense of the competing options. But Andy masks investment complexities and wraps the hard to understand stuff in an accessible language. I particularly liked his use of metaphor to explain complicated financial theories. I carried out extensive online research and followed recognised bodies, e.g Financial Services Authority best practice in my search to find a good Financial Advisor. Andy ticked all the boxes. Andy is not only a brilliant Financial Advisor but a good guy who wants to help. His advice helped me to have an informed discussion with my employer about my pension rights. His fees didn’t cover this advice. He also helped me in validating provider income protection payment calculations; another intervention that his fees did not cover. Another aspect that I liked about Andy’s service is his wide network of professional contacts who cover areas that he doesn’t. For example I wanted advice on how to draw up a Long Lasting Power of Attorney. This is not his area of work but he quickly suggested good professionals who can help. This is crucial, I think, as often financial planning can’t be achieved in isolation.

What could they have done better?

Thanks to Andy, I now have all of my financial products (pension, ISA, General investment) organised in one place and invested in the right markets. I believe Andy's fees are competitive. I am happy to vouch for Andy and answer any questions that you may have on this review.

He told me about tax efficiency savings accounts, for example putting your money into your pension is a really good way of avoiding paying unnecessary tax.

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

After purchasing and renovating my first property, I felt a need to start putting money aside for the future as previously all of my savings were being put towards house buying expenses. I wasn't sure where to start with regards to investing and felt slightly overwhelmed by the variety of options out there.

How has Andy Norrington helped you?

Andy encouraged me to finally track down my old pensions and he has now consolidated these into one place. He advised on the best investment and savings solution for my profile and requirements. Through our discussions we arrived at a figure which I feel comfortable setting aside each month and as a result I feel more confident about the future.

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

I have been contemplating for awhile now how to safely and wisely invest some of my savings. I wanted to find a financial adviser who will not only help me do so, but with whom I will feel comfortable and secure.

How has Andy Norrington helped you?

I feel lucky to have found Andy. During our initial conversation over the phone and subsequent face- to -face meeting, he spent a lot of time (more than what is required by him ) to not only understand my financial situation , my financial goals and future aspirations , but to also understand who am I as a person, what my fears and concerns are and to answer all of my numerous questions. Andy respected my wishes and gave me an honest, impartial and professional advice. Having made a plan, he made sure I understand and feel comfortable with it, which I do. Andy gave me advice to how further maximize my earnings/savings/investments for the future and protect myself from unforeseen events which may have negative impact on me.

To have a better understanding of my PP. transfer the smaller ones into one main portfolio and the get a better investment rate of of portion of the main PP submitted. To cash in 25% of the pension for building works

How has Andy Norrington helped you?

Andy was excellent, very informative about the types of pension investment available. With the comprehensive meetings we had to discuss my main portfolio which consisted of two individual units, I felt confident and comfortable enough to use a portion the smaller unit to have fun with a higher investment rate. Andy was very thorough in explaining how pension were invested in the clients behalf and for the first time in a very long time, I came a way for the meeting with a much greater understanding of how investment and pensions worked.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

I have recently received notification that the transfer of my smaller pensions are now being released into my main retirement portfolio. I look forward to the outcome later in this year

What could they have done better?

Andy came highly recommended by a friend and excelled in every areas as my financial. I know I have received very thorough comprehensive information because when I consider my pension portfolio now, I know exactly what’s happening to it, I have a firm grasp on the areas of investment for the smaller unit that will be invested at a higher rate for a certain period of time. When I look through the documents everything makes sense. This is due to Andy spending a good deal of his time going thru my portfolio detail by detail. He did not talk over my head with impressive facts and figures that financial adviser were notorious for. He took time to make sure I had a full grasp of everything we discussed, and for that very reason, I look forward to recommending him to friends too.
