We needed some general advice on pensions, and planning ahead for retirement, and didn't know which direction to take and what we would then need to do to get there. Victoria chatted to us in a relaxed and friendly way and somehow managed to distil all the information we gave her into a way forward that we completely understood and were very happy with. She listened carefully to what we thought we wanted to achieve, making relevant and really useful suggestions. Her forecasts and plans showing our options were presented clearly and were easily understood and it was exactly what we needed to feel more confident about our financial future. We found Victoria very easy to chat to and brainstorm ideas with and will be seeing her again as we move forward with our plans. I'd have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family.

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

My husband is thinking of retiring soon. We have various pensions between us and some savings/properties. We wanted advice on how to manage everything.

How has Victoria Toan helped you?

We had various, quite lengthy, meetings with Victoria and discussed our personal circumstances, finances, etc. She was able to advise us on specifically what we needed to do regarding our pensions and savings/investments.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes .... so far. We only had our first meeting with Victoria relatively recently, but already we have made changes based on her advice, and have already seen some benefits.

What could they have done better?

I really don't think Victoria could have done anything better. She really took the time to get to know us and to look at our situation in great depth. She is very easy to talk to and a really nice person too!

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

Needed help looking at retirement planning and pension consolidation.

How has Victoria Toan helped you?

We trusted Victoria. She took the time to understand our requirements and our propensity to risk.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Its really too early to say, but her advice has allowed us to optimise our ISA allowances and bring our pensions into a manageable quality fund that we feel comfortable with.

What could they have done better?

None really. Victoria gave us a set of options and clearly outlined the costs and benefits of each. We took her advice because she took the time to understood what outcomes we were looking for..

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

I already knew Vicky and had valued her advice in the past. I thought that having an IFA with an in-depth understanding of our circumstances could be useful. I was also somewhat dissatisfied with our current arrangements and felt that I might be able to obtain a better return on our investments.

How has Victoria Toan helped you?

Vicky took her time to get to know our circumstances in some depth and to set out various options. I felt that she was genuinely concerned for us and wanted to give us the best possible service. I was impressed by her values and those of Vision IFP - there was no "hard sell".

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes

What could they have done better?

I can't think of anything.
