Please provide a brief comment about your experience with Veronica

Veronica Mann deserves the highest praise for the invaluable support she provided in navigating financial aid for our mother, who is grappling with dementia. Living outside the UK presented its own set of challenges, but Veronica's expertise transcended borders. From our initial contact, Veronica demonstrated not only a profound understanding of the intricacies of financial assistance but also a genuine empathy for our situation. Her guidance was comprehensive, tailored to our specific needs, and delivered with utmost clarity. Despite the geographical difference, Veronica's commitment to our cause was unwavering. She went above and beyond to ensure we not only understood the complex financial landscape but also felt supported emotionally during this challenging journey. What truly sets Veronica apart is her ability to turn what could be an overwhelming and confusing process into a manageable and hopeful one. Her attention to detail, timely responses, and willingness to address our concerns made the entire experience smoother than we could have imagined. In the realm of personal service, Veronica Mann exemplifies professionalism, empathy, and a genuine passion for helping others. Our family is profoundly grateful for her guidance and would wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone navigating similar challenges. Thank you, Veronica, for being a beacon of support during a difficult time.

I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional assistance we received from Veronica Mann in managing our mother's finances. My brother and I were faced with the challenging task of navigating through the complexities of financial matters, and Veronica proved to be an invaluable resource throughout this process.

She took the time to thoroughly understand our situation and provided clear and concise guidance on the best course of action. Her attention to detail and comprehensive knowledge in financial matters reassured us during a time that could have otherwise been overwhelming.

Her dedication to providing personalized and thoughtful assistance made the entire experience much more manageable. In addition to her technical proficiency, Veronica demonstrated excellent communication skills.

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

I was taking early retirement and needed advice on managing my pension pot and other investments to provide for my post-employment life

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Ensuring my pension and other investments are in logical funds that I can access as and when required. Veronica explains things in a way which is easy to understand, will spend time re-explaining in easier terms if I fail to understand the technicalities initially and politely prompts me to keep me on track with my financial arrangements. All this is done in a very amiable manner and with good humour which is greatly appreciated.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes.

What could they have done better?

No complaints!

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

I have enjoyed the services of an IFA on a fee basis for many years, mainly for advise with insurance and pensions. Having retired and then moved at the start of COVID I needed a new IFA to traverse the hitherto unchartered waters of lifetime mortgage/equity release.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

After a detailed fact find and form filling Veronica soon came up with lifetime mortgage proposals from a number of leading providers. . Veronica met and exceeded our very narrow brief of requirements. She is very level headed; a prompt communicator; and is risk averse.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, We have just achieved a second advance on our plan

What could they have done better?

I hate sending documents by the royal mail, form filling and signing. Some documents can be sent, printed , signed and sent back electronically , some cannot. Even from the same source in the same bundle of documents. No one seems to know which they are, until you ask.

Veronica's reply

Hi Mo, I really appreciate you taking the time to do this... I am sorry you thought you had to chase us to get things done though. I hope it was not down to my team. I'm afraid we were in the hands of third parties. All the best Veronica

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Veronica facilitated a total overview of my current financial position prior to presenting a report on recommended options. Found her very approachable, responsive, suitably challenging and inspiring trust and confidence. She takes the time to gain insight into client's lifestyle and retirement/lifestyle requirements, attitude to risk, before moving to recommendations. Well supported by a responsive and helpful Tallis admin team.

Still very soon after recommendations implemented, but on track so far.

How has Veronica Mann helped you since your last review?

I believe that it is actually a year since I formally reviewed Veronica's support for me. Since then, she has continued to review and refine my portfolio, and has encouraged me to find ways of better balancing my income, investments and expenditure. She listens to my questions and concerns with a constructive attitude and gives clear advice, supported by explanation of the development of her views and consideration of areas where uncertainty exists. She has further advised me on the management of the bequest from my Mother after her death earlier this year, and on options for transferring some of my inherited moneys to younger members of the family. She was kind enough to speak to family members in order to explain our situation when an area of uncertainty arose in relation to a family trust concerning property. She particularly seeks to support and advise women who are, or have become, single and must manage their affairs with the effects on taxation, gifting and the management of residential property which can arise as a result of this singular status. This continues to be very helpful to me.

My firesat met with Veronica in 2019. My wife and I were looking to retire in 2020. I have always had a financial advisor and needed one who was more local. Veronica goes that extra mile and truly has the clients interests at heart. She is very personable and, most importantly, inspired confidence in my wife.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

She published a financial profile both before and after retirement. She established that we met the criteria for a Lifetime mortgage and what percentage and amount of the value of any new property we could raise in this way. Her fees were agreed before work started and were very reasonable.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes we obtained a very flexible lifetime mortgage with a company that is responsive to our needs.

What could they have done better?

Perhaps make us more aware of the many obstacles and hurdles we were likely to meet.

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

My husband and I were considering how best to use our money to safeguard our own future and yet at the same time help our children regarding our grandchildrens schooling and university costs.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Veronica provided advice on first reviewing our financial situation (income and outgoings) and our assets, understanding what might be our goals for the future and setting forward a plan for action to work with funds and trusts to ringfence money for our grandchildren and conserve enough so that we may live comfortably now and in the future.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, we feel confident that Veronica has looked after our best interests. She has advised and actioned plans to put money in safe havens to provide enough to cover some school and university fees over the next years. This gives us a measure of security in looking forward to the future and it takes some of the worry and onus from us in that there is a friendly IFA there to help us - we are not alone!

What could they have done better?

Sometimes there is a plethora of forms and a strong measure of bureacracy - this is not something Veronica can do anything about as she has to do due diligence and follow the procedures but if IFAs as a group could lobby for less red tape, that would be good.

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

My wife and I are looking to retire next year. I have always had a financial adviser and needed a new one who was more local. Veronica goes that extra mile and truly has the clients interests at heart. She is very personable and inspired confidence in my wife.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

She established a financial profile both now and after retirement. She established that we met the criteria for a Lifetime Mortgage and what percentage/amount of any new property we could raise in this way. Her fees were agreed before work started and were very reasonable.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, although it will not come to final fruition until next year.

What could they have done better?

I can't think of anything.

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

Looking to buy an immediate care home annuity to pay for lifetime fees for my Mother.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Veronica helped me to calculate my Mother’s ongoing income and expenses to ascertain how much ‘insurance’ we needed to buy to ensure that my Mother’s care home fees could be paid for the rest of her life. She then searched the market and liaised with providers to obtain the best price she could for us.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes we feel that Veronica gave us good advice and negotiated a good and fair price with our preferred provider

What could they have done better?

I can’t think of anything that Veronica could have improved on. She worked well within the time scale that we agreed, was always easily contactable by phone and e mail. Totally professional and reliable.

Veronica's reply

Thank you Julie. I am so glad that I could help and that you have less pressure now.

On my retirement I needed to finalise a plan to place my finances into a manageable portfolio without further contributions from me,allowing them to grow with lesser risk.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

With concise planning from Veronica I hope I have gone some way to achieving my future goals.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Too early to say, as it's been a relatively short time since plans were put in place (less than 6 months).

What could they have done better?

I believe Veronica has helped as expected with care and great ability as befits of her position.

I was looking to review my pension and release some funds.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Veronica helped me sort out my pension, transfer it to another provider and arrange the release of some tax free funds for some projects. We had to deal with a very frustrating and long winded situation with the old provider which went on for months and was extremely frustrating. Veronica kept her cool through the whole process and advised me on the best way to handle it.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Analysed our financial position and recommended best course of action

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Short/medium term - yes Long term - we don't know yet but are confident

What could they have done better?

Over the years we have dealt with Veronica through several different companies, which has meant changes of paperwork when a switch has taken place. But nothing stays the same in the financial (or any) business, so we don't mind and are happy with the current organisation.

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

I felt the Financial Advisor I have been with for many years was not able to give me the one to one attention I needed now as I am a 82 year old widow and like to have details of my finances explained thoroughly.

How has Veronica Mann helped you?

Veronica Mann is very approachable- I feel comfortable in her company, she does not talk down but explains things in layman terms which, when you are getting older is very important.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

We have only been together for a matter of months and I am waiting for some finances to become available when we can start to work together properly.

What could they have done better?

At the moment I can not see anything that Veronica could be doing better than she is
