Matt has advised me on different Isa's and bonds and keeps an eye on the progress of it. I can ring him if i have any questions and i feel comfortable enough to do this.

Matt's reply

Thank you for your 5* review! Your feedback is very welcome and I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Stock market linked investments do generally carry varying levels of investment risk and therefore there will be times that values can go down as well as up and investments should be viewed as part of a long term strategy. I aim to be as transparent as possible when explaining risk and rewards and hopefully this provides a service that my clients value and can trust.

Thank you for taking the time out to leave a review, your feedback really is really valuable to me. I appreciate all of your high ratings, especially the 5* for both quality of advice and value for money and also welcome the 4* rating for quality of service too. As you have eluded to in your comments, during busy periods sometimes pension providers can be slow to respond to information requests and so, we do our best to keep clients informed of progress. This can be frustrating for both clients and advisers. As whole of market advisers, I do consider service levels when providing all recommendations, to help things to run as smoothly as possible, as I understand this can be a key factor in client satisfaction levels.

Matt came to my house to discuss and advise me on investing an amount of money I had from a sale of a property. I was unsure what to do with the money I had sitting in a bank account. I knew I wanted to invest it but knew nothing about what that meant. Matt provided clear and understandable information and gave me confidence to go forward with the investment. Matt was very professional, friendly , polite and knowledgeable. He is also very patient , as I am not very good with figures , he was able to explain to me the things I didn't fully understand. I feel better now that I have Matt to turn to if I need help and advise in the future, and I feel that I can trust him to do his best to help my investment grow,

How has Matt Fleming helped you?

Pension investments and retirement planning. Helping us to work through our appetite for risk, and our short and longer term financial goals.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Too early to say. Matt was very open about potential loss and gains, and challenging economic environment has seen our pensions drop but we’re confident that Matt is guiding us well and that the market will improve before retirement in a couple of years, so we’re hopeful.

What could they have done better?

Nothing. Integrity and trust were our highest priorities in selecting an Advisor. Matt has been open and honest throughout our relationship, respectfully challenging us on how reasonable our future aspirations are, when needed. He’s been very helpful in guiding us and very responsive to queries.
