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

I've been a client of Craig's for over 13 years now. My Initial reason for contacting an adviser was for my retirement and what best to do with my pension pot.

How has Craig Atkins helped you?

The company I worked for had a problem maintaining the deficit in it's pension scheme, like so many companies at the time. Craig advised to transfer my pension pot out from the trustees and invest my pension pot. This I agreed to. The transfer was taken care of by Craig and recommended a well known and respected investment management company in London. After a consultation with Craig an assessment of my circumstances and attitude to risk was carried out. The transfer out was swift and I was appointed a fund manager and a discretionary run portfolio with Quilter Cheviot .

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, I now have a draw-down pension whilst still keeping my money invested with a reasonable return on my investment.

What could they have done better?

Absolutely nothing, I have access to his advise when ever I need it. Although thankfully not that often. We have a yearly review to make sure all is going to plan and make any adjustments if required.

My previous advisor sold their company to a large group and I was not particularly happy with the new company. There was no personal touch and I felt like a number. Since I have been with Craig Atkins you are definitely treated as an individual and certainly get the personal touch. Craig is very easy to contact and if he is not available he always comes back to very soon.

He has transferred my holdings from my old advisor to him. He has kept me informed on progress and lets me know what is happening in simple English.

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

I took early retirement at Age 61 with a excellent pension pot and redundancy package. My question to myself was what to do with my pension pot, considering it was a final salary pension, also the company I worked for had a large hole to fill to maintain the pension plan.

How has Craig Atkins helped you?

The trusties gave me a reasonable enhancement if I transferred my pension pot out of the plan. On Craig's advise this was put into action and transferred out. The sum was put into investments through Quilter Cheviot Ltd financial investments and run by an investment manager. A Draw-down pension was set up through Standard Life

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes; In the passed 9 years since the original investment my portfolio has maintained a good level of income, even once running costs are taken into consideration.

What could they have done better?

I'm not sure Craig can do much more for me as I'm now settled in my finances and with a regular drawdown pension. However; I've kept Craig on as he runs my pension, we also have a yearly catch up. So for the time being I decided to keep him on as my ongoing adviser at a fair percentage of my pension.

I've known Craig for 18 months, in that time his advise has been second to none. I was made redundant in early 2013. My main concerns at the time was my company pension and the defacit of the company funding it. Craig's advise was to take my pot out and invest it in a drawdown pension. Craig took care of all the transfers and setting me up with a sipp and a fund managed porfolio. Prior to this, a risk assesment was carried out with myself and Craig. He's arranged meetings with the fund management company in which I have my own fund manager . I'm kept upto date with my portfolio and it's performance. Craig has also given me sound advise on tax and investments with follow up reviews.

What could they have done better?

I have no concerns with Craig. Infact I'm not sure there's anything he could do better for me. Top Bloke.

How has Craig Atkins helped you?

Gives very good advice and treats you as an individual. Very easy to talk to and explains things in layman's terms. Craig sorted out the problems with my previous pension provider and I am now a lot happier with my investment. I would definitely pass Craigs number on.

What could they have done better?

Nothing. I was more than happy with the service.

Craig is clearly passionate with finding the right product for his clients. He is also reasonable and upfront about any risks and you never feel that he is placing any up unwanted pressure which is rare in this field. He is a true gem and I am pleased he looks after my portfolio

What could they have done better?

He could work less during his holidays!:-)

How has Craig Atkins helped you?

Since finding Craig following my redundancy in 2009 he was very helpful and professional in his manner and advise. He carried out a full review of my finances and pointed me in the right direction, since then he has helped me to transfer a company pension to a private pension scheme and will soon be organising us a mortgage. Very highly recommended and does not push particular products that are available.

What could they have done better?

More of the same as he already does.

Listens to what you need - not what he wants to sell you. Will offer a rounded advice solution based on gaining all the facts of what it is you are looking for. He has arranged insurance for an insurance-a-phobe and having dealt with the company for claims in the last year they have been extremely easy and pleasant to deal with so I am more than happy with the service provided by them and by Craig. I would recommend him to anyone looking to review their financial/insurance situation - very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
