What do our clients say?

  • Thank you Paul for visiting my home recently for a dig through our various life insurance policies.

    I left my wife to run the meet and greet and she was very impressed with Paul's analytical approach, obvious knowledge and professional yet friendly manner.

    We were very happy that Paul was able to advise us on a type of cover we should be looking for and presented us with option on policies that were much more useful and with much cheaper premiums. Paul even made the form filling as simple as possible and for that we are grateful.

  • For almost 20 years I have used the services and advice from Iain Whitechurch, the services offered included, mortgages and re-mortgages, children’s saving plans and pensions in the main.

    The advice was always given at a level that was understandable and appropriate for my financial situation at the various times though out the last 20 years, which due to unforeseen circumstances has been ever changing.

    Along with the expert advice and service Iain has become an integral part in my financial future plans and decisions.

  • I first hired Felix in April 2011 to arrange my critical illness cover. Now I am notoriously hard to pin down to arrange stuff like this due to my constant work load. Felix was totally understanding of this and his incredible perseverance with me resulted in finally securing an excellent policy for me in March 2012. Felix visited me at my workshop on a number of occasions to gain all the relevant information that he needed. I cannot thank Felix enough for his hard work and patience and will be glad to recommend him in the future. And he makes a damn fine cup of tea as well!
