“Alex Groves was recommended to me by a work colleague who had dealt with Alex on many occasions concerning various financial issues.

I was looking for some financial advice concerning 3 pension schemes I had from Wolseley, Vaillant and Saint Gobain who were previous employers of mine. I had always been a bit wary of IFAs, but that worry was put to bed after the first meeting I had with Alex at my home.

Alex explained all the options available to myself and my fiancée Claire and the process was not rushed and was very thorough. Alex went through everything in fine detail and we both found the process easy to understand and Alex never complicated matters.

Once we had signed the agreements Alex always available if there was anything, we needed to ask him in the following weeks.

We have been very satisfied with the customer service we have received from Alex and would not have any hesitation in using him again in the future.”

“I met Alex when I worked with him at NatWest where he was a Financial Planning Manager, which was the reason I chose him to provide pension advice for myself and my husband. I knew I could trust his advice and integrity.

Alex has visited us on several occasions now, at home after have work when it has been convenient and has reviewed both our pensions and finances in great detail, providing us with different options for the future, and has been able to provide us with paperwork to support his advice so we could give consideration to the best option for us.

Once our decision was made Alex dealt with matters for us and answered any questions we raised immediately.
He continues to support us with our finances and we now have yearly reviews to ensure things are going to plan and to address any changes.

We would both highly recommend Alex for any financial Investment advice.
