What clients are saying about us

Simran has been a pleasure to know.  I’m really bad with my finances and never really given them much thought, but Simran helped me to understand what I need to do in a very clear manner and without losing her patience!  She explained the ins and outs of various options and arrangements that were available to me in my kind of language.  I’ve never worked with a financial adviser before so I was a bit nervous about whether or not I could trust them to be working in my interests, but Simran was able to put me at ease very quickly.  I highly recommend her services.

Three months ago I did something I’d been putting off for years: I went to a financial advisor to sort out my retirement. I am very pleased that I did, and I am delighted that I chose Owen Cook at Ablestoke as my advisor. The reason I’d never seen a financial advisor before is that I was, frankly, embarrassed that I’d put off my retirement planning for so long. I feared being reprimanded and being told what I already knew – that I’d have been a lot better off if I’d have started saving twenty years ago. I was also worried that I was beyond help; I didn’t imagine I could make any real difference with what I might manage to set aside at the end of each month. Plus I was anxious that I might have to pay a lump sum up front to cover the cost of the advice, and I certainly didn’t have any spare cash lying around. To my relief, all of my fears were unfounded. Owen put me completely at my ease and was very respectful of my situation. He made no reference to my late adoption of financial planning; he instead concentrated on my current situation, where I wanted to be, and how I was going to get there. Using plain language, and with the help of lots of drawings to make things absolutely clear, he explained the theory behind every aspect of his advice. After two in-depth sessions we had come up with a plan which we will review annually to make sure everything is on track. There was no nasty lump sum to pay – any costs are included in the monthly direct debit so are virtually unnoticeable. I left Owen’s office with a spring in my step – I felt as if the giant burden of uncertainty I’d lived with for so long had been lifted. I do not feel poorer each month for the money that I put into the plan; it has in fact given me a new sense of direction and real peace of mind. I would urge anyone who hasn’t made provision for their retirement to stop putting it off – just pick up the phone and give Owen a call. You will be glad you did.

Barney from Ablestoke has provided me with Financial Advice over a 3 year period. As an Accountant I thought my personal finances were in good order but Barney helped me through the minefields that are Pension, Critical Illness, Life Assurance, Wills, Mortgages to name a few. Great advice which he is constantly looking to improve by increasing the benefits whilst reducing costs.

Thank you so, so much for your help with my mortgage, and in general with chasing mortgage companies and solicitors etc, etc. I (literally) could not have done any of this without you.
