Lorraine Galley

“I have received an excellent service from Lorraine at True Bearing Chartered Financial Planners. She is friendly, professional and works tirelessly to provide me with honest, sound advice on my savings and investments. She has also arranged for me to receive a monthly income from my investments.

Lorraine patiently explains any recommendations in words that I can understand and I am confident in the knowledge that she works in my best interest. It is such a relief to know she is only a phone call away if anything unexpected crops up and I need her advice. Her enthusiasm and reliability makes it a pleasure to do business with her.

I can now look forward to my retirement, safe in the knowledge that Lorraine will look after me and my finances in the future, which is a wonderful feeling.

I have recommended Lorraine and True Bearing to my friends and family and to anyone who wants a truly outstanding professional financial service and peace of mind.

Mark O'Neill

“After winning the National Lottery, I was looking for an established financial adviser with expertise in higher value wealth management.

My legal advisers introduced me to Mark O’Neill due to the reputation that he and True Bearing have for professionalism and plain-speaking advice.

Mark works with integrity and is very passionate about understanding my specific needs.  Unlike other firms I have dealt with, I feel that I have benefited from the independence of his advice and the bespoke service where he regularly reviews my planning.

My priorities were to grow my investments, obtain income and mitigate the effect of Inheritance Tax. Mark has achieved these aims and I would highly recommend him and his company.”


Mike Clarke

“Michael has been my IFA for some years, managing my SIPP and providing ongoing general investment advice.  Having used other companies previously, he came as a breath of fresh air.  His client care and attention to detail is absolutely superb, and following his advice at our regular reviews during each year has stood me in good stead as regards the performance of my SIPP, which has consistently been most satisfactory, despite the difficult financial times over the last couple or so years.

I always feel reassured that my investments are under regular scrutiny and he and his colleagues at True Bearing are very focused within the financial investment marketplace and constantly striving to seek new and improved solid investment opportunities. He has a client friendly demeanour, and  professionalism, that stands out. I unreservedly would recommend him to any prospective client, and feel sure you would not be disappointed, with the care and service provided. Keep up the good work Michael.”
