My adviser made sure she completely understood me, my attitude to risk, and what I was looking for. She listened to me, and worked with me to ensure that I was comfortable with the suggested way forward. I liked the fact that she never tried to push me in a certain direction – it really felt like my choice!

My adviser did a grand job on sorting out all my pensions for me which lifted a great weight off my shoulders; also, excellent advice on savings and investments.
