Diane and Andrew Pilling, Directors, Affordable Accounts Group,
“I first met David at a Pre- Retirement Course for Blackpool Council employees, of which I was one, in 2009, where he presented clearly the considerations and options for investment and future security. His delivery was clear and factual, and he dispelled some commonly held myths.He gave a clear impression that he knew his subject and would offer balanced and honest advice as an Independent Financial Adviser. I followed this contact up and have retained his services since my retirement in April 2010. He always answers queries promptly and fully, and is prepared to do whatever work is necessary to reach a solution I am happy with . He does not confuse me with complex explanations which I do not need or understand, and yet leaves me with confidence about the decisions I have made. He presents as a person of integrity and someone to be trusted.I would not hesitate in recommending David to friends and colleagues in the future.”
J Jaynes, Retired Director, Blackpool Council
