Marcus has been my IFA now for about 5 years and was recommended to me by my business accountant. As someone who spends a lot of time away from home and working towards retirement I was looking for someone local who could give me personal financial advice and knock into shape my multitude small pensions into one scheme and manage my other assets. Having done this, he offered a product called Plan4Life which as the name suggests allow you to provide your income and expenses over the years and into retirement so giving insight into how your finances will track with time. I have found this invaluable during my reviews for planning my retirement. As a result I would have no hesitation in recommending Marcus.

I approached Marcus on recommendation from someone else for a single piece of advice. I was really impressed with the speed at which he arranged things, and how straightforward he made it all seem. I was really pleased with his service and will certainly use him again in the future.

He is proactive at identifying potential savings which has proved valuable on a few occasions. I’m impressed by the way he continues to widen the portfolio of financial products he is qualified to help which leads to a more holistic view of our finances. I would not hesitate to recommend Marcus.Note though that, unlike him, I am not qualified to give out financial advice.

Marcus advised me on my first ever mortgage. He explained things in a way I could understand and that made me feel confident in the product he advised. Over the years Marcus has provided excellent and reliable advice, finding me mortgages and insurances for my various unusual circumstances. I value especiallly his integrity and reliability – he always checks deals out to the last detail and that is hugely valuable as it saves wasting time applying for a mortgage and later finding a stumbling block. Thank you 🙂
