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

My previous financial advisors were remote, their visits were soley annual and not as competent as I needed.

How has Olivia Williams helped you?

Olivia found out what my needs were and went through my options. She explained how things worked, answered my questions competently and certainly seemed to go the extra mile to find the best solutions for vsrious scenarios.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

It is a bit soon to be able to tell, particularly in view of the initial cost of moving providers. To be honest, I trust that I have made the right move to the point where I haven't even checked how my inversments has faired since being moved.

What could they have done better?

I can't think of anything at this point in time.

Olivia's reply

Thank you John for taking the time to leave me such a positive review. I am very glad you are happy with your financial plan and i look forward to building on this together as time goes on.

Please provide a brief comment about your experience with Olivia

I had been in a quandary for a few weeks with mixed feelings on how to achieve the next stage in my life & fulfilling my dream. My friend recommended Stonewealth. I made my appointment, & spent 2 hours with Olivia. She was amazing helping to discuss all my thoughts & what I wanted to achieve. I came away from my meeting with a much clearer head. I never realised there was a company like Stonewealth where you could find help like this. Something I couldn’t discuss with family or friends. I have now started putting my plans in place to fulfill my dream. Happy me. Thank you so much, Olivia.

Oliwia listened patiently to my experience and knowledge about financing. She introduced me to online platforms , which gave options for me to look deeper into investment and their history which I value. She gave me plenty of time for questions and answered them in a clear, understandable way.

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

Following my recent divorce, I was granted a Pension Sharing Order. I had no experience of what I needed to do or where to even start so needed to seek some advice from a financial adviser.

How has Olivia Williams helped you?

Olivia has been excellent from start to finish. From our initial chat, she has been nothing but helpful. Having never dealt with this type of thing before I was extremely nervous but Olivia was able to put my mind at ease. She explained the process clearly and in a way I could understand. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I know both her and her administration team are only a call away should I need to speak to them.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, I wanted an adviser who would take away the worry from me and allow me to enjoy my retirement. Olivia has done just that and I cannot thank her enough.
