Client reviews

Some of my clients have kindly offered to leave the following reviews of my service:

Laurence Sanderson provided us with a wealth of experience and knowledge regarding the pension market. Without him, we would never have been able to make such an important decision at a time when this market was experiencing so many changes. We particularly value his expertise and his ability to explain complicated concepts. He is a very approachable and friendly financial adviser.

Stephen, Chelmsford

Laurence provided a comprehensive review of my financial affairs and provided some practical recommendations which have improved the protection I have for my family. He has eye for detail, and at the same time is able to provide advice that is easy to understand and tailored to the clients’ requirements

Phil – Kent

Laurence has been extremely helpful and very patient. I have been advised of various options available and have made the decision on a fund manager, having visited two fund managers. I have been kept up to date very regularly and Laurence has taken all the worry of managing my portfolio.

Sandra – Brentwood

I am very pleased that we sought advice from Laurence. He has been very helpful. He explains everything clearly, he does not rush, he is always on time, he doesn’t waffle … I can’t think of anything to criticise!

My adviser understood my situation very well. His advice and help made the whole process very simple, taking most of the strain off of my shoulders. If I needed financial advice again Sterling & Law would be my first port of call and I would recommend their services to anyone needing advice or support.
TS - Essex
From the word go my adviser was both professional, knowledgeable and quickly understood my particular situation, what I wanted to do and why I wanted to do it. He always responded quickly to the many questions I had, and given the nature of some of those questions he showed a great deal of patience. His advice always had my best interest at their core.
RL - Kent
My adviser is very knowledgeable in the areas of investments and pensions. I found her very thorough and look forward to an ongoing relationship.
