I met with Andy recently, to seek advice re investing some money. He was very approachable and explained my options clearly and suggested the best options for me. At no point did he pressurise me at all into investing money anywhere that would benefit him, financially. I have no hesitation in recommending Andy and will certainly approach him again, should the need arise. There is no charge for the first consultation.

We had multiple pension packages over a number of employers as well as a large cash pot from a employment separation agreement that was not invested an was moving to semi retirement.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

Yes, his initial input was not to consolidate pensions as these were giving a good return for low management fees already, this changed once I had reached an age where the corporate pension funds automatically moved to low risk investment and I was not able to change that. Given I still had an income stream it was recommended to move these to higher return options.

I've been self-employed for a number of years and have never got round to sorting out a pension or business protection. In our current climate, it seemed now was the time to change that. After reading reviews of local practices, I contacted Andrew for some initial advice. Honestly, I was quite blown away by 1. how much I didn't know and 2. how easy the entire process would be to get all my finances organised and have back that lovely thing called 'peace of mind'. Andrew clearly knows the world of finance but can also explain everything in layman's terms, which I for one was extremely grateful for. The entire team were helpful and friendly, I can't fault the service and I'm certain I'll become a long-term client.

Poorly performing pensions across a number of different providers.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

I admittedly don't know enough as I should about investment planning and pensions, but I knew enough to know that my existing pensions weren't performing as well as should be expected. These are pensions I've either had with previous employers or private pensions which I have chosen myself in the past. Andrew helped me to identify that their performance was in fact poor and produced a plan which would consolidate my various pensions in a way that I understood and where I could clearly see the benefit of doing so.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Financially, not yet since insufficient time has passed to show a historic comparison of before/after. If peace of mind can be a measurable outcome, then yes I have.

What could they have done better?

Quite honestly, nothing. If my two aims were to address my concerns about poorly-performing pensions and to understand my options and eventual choices, they have both been met.

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

I was looking for assistance in analysing my current pension investments, with a view to determining if early retirement was possible at a level of income defined by myself.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

Andrew analysed my current savings and pensions position and confirmed that my goals could be achieved, and that on-going wealth management could assist in the long term sustained retirement income within the normal risks associated with the markets.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

The plan is in the process of being executed. It is too early to confirm that the outcome has met the projected plan, however with Andrew's advise I have confidence that the goals will be met.

What could they have done better?

It is difficult to identify an area for improvement. Meetings have been organised when asked for, and have been productive. All questions have been answered, and the explanations have been straightforward.

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

I was looking to place all my varied investments, pensions etc under better control and in the one place. Alongside that my goal at this stage was good capital growth with real tax efficineces in mind and feel comfortable that I had an IFA that could help advise me when I needed to switch from capital growth to income delivery.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

As per above I've ensured I've been able to benefit from all or most of the tax efficient saving options out there for ISA's pension contributions etc whilst ensuring my portfolio was still steered towards sound investments offering the prospect of above the norm capital growth.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

So far I've seen very decent growth on my ISA portfolio and all the other funds and investments are moving nicely. That is helped by past posive stock market growth and setting a slightly above mid-range appetitie for risk on my portfolio.

What could they have done better?

I think sometimes one needs to press a little more on charges {either direct or quiet splits from platfrom provider charges} and also how tied or not any IFA is to their platform providers products and services? Also how they are incentivised by their selected partner?

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

We had sold our home and holiday cottage and are currently renting a house connected to a gallery which suits our needs. But we wanted to make our money work for us rather than sitting in the bank and to give us an income to help us continue living where we are now.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

He advised us over several months on the best way to go and also looked into the pensions Dave Hunt had and how these could be best utilised and advised us on ISAs.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

We now have the money invested - so looking forward to it producing results - appreciating that things can go up as well as down.

What could they have done better?

I don't think there is anything he could have done better. He went out of his way to visit us and to be available if we had questions. He was extremely helpful.

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

I was considering transferring my pension from a defined benefits scheme to a personal pension.

How has Andrew Macintyre helped you?

Listened to my needs and concerns and gave the appropriate advice. He confirmed that the transfer was suitable for me, set up the new pension plan and recommended investment in funds which aligned with my needs and attitude to risk. He was the third financial adviser that I had approached and brought to my attention things that the other two had failed to mention. And all for a very reasonable fee.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Even although I was lucky in that the transfer took place when the market was low and the increase in value of the fund has surpassed my wildest expectations, I am more than satisfied with my decision to transfer and to have Andrew looking after my changing needs.

What could they have done better?

Can't think of anything.
