I felt very reassured and confident about my decision to go with him.

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

Originally I had 4 or 5 different pensions, it was in bit a mess really, difficult to managed and to know long term exactly how to deal with them as I needed to raise some capital for a major improvement for our business. Only thing I knew was I could take out 25% tax free as I was at that age. So needed a professional and Paul came highly recommended!!

How has Paul Grey helped you?

Paul helped me considerably, I could not have done it on my own for sure. Paul liaised with each pension provider and managed to transfer all of them into one manageable platform, which Paul still advise and monitors, so therefor I know my pension is in good hands. Also Paul advises on all aspects of financial planning for me and I know its sound unbiased advise.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes I sure have, absolutely fabulous work. Also Paul explains everything in a way that one can understand the financial world far better.

What could they have done better?

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

We were introduced to Paul's predecessor by a mutual client. Our mortgage, investments and pensions badly needed sorting out at that time. We have stayed with TFA since then.

How has Paul Grey helped you?

He keeps us up to date with the latest market trends. He is always quick to respond to any questions that we have regarding our pensions.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

yes

What could they have done better?

We do miss the face to face visits that we had prior to covid, but the online meetings work well.

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

I wanted to see if it would be possible to retire early.

How has Paul Grey helped you?

I wanted an IFA who was also a Chartered Financial Planner to help me get my financial affairs in order and after talking to several from the "VouchedFor" website I chose to engage Paul. My immediate concern was whether it would be possible for me to retire early and Paul spent a lot of time talking to me and reviewing all my pensions/ISAs/investments and then came up with a detailed plan to help me achieve my goals. We talked this through to make sure I was comfortable with everything and then he did all the necessary work to move investments around. We are now about to have our first annual review to make sure things are on track and to tweak details if required. Right from our initial contact, Paul has been very thorough with his reviews/analysis and he is very responsive and available when I have questions, always replying to emails within hours of me sending them or arranging a meeting if required. He is very organized and on top of everything which has been a source of re-assurance for me as this is such an important area of my life to get right. Paul is very easy to communicate with and is very patient, being happy to explain things several times over until I am comfortable. Between Paul and Philly (Philly is Paul's assistant) I feel very well supported in my financial affairs.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

It is too early to comment on the performance of my investments but I am extremely happy with how things have gone so far in getting to this point.

What could they have done better?

Nothing
