I contacted Paul in lieu of impending retirement, he came already highly recommended. I have very limited understanding of how all the financial ‘stuff’ works and found Paul to be very professional and helpful despite my lack of awareness. He listened to all the issues that I had, then explained and clarified examples of how they could be dealt with and then put solutions in place to deal with them. His expertise and advice has proved very effective to date.
I have known Paul for many years having dealt with him with Abacus Associates Financial Advisors of Hereford. I find him always reliable, very amiable and easy to deal with. He is able to advise in an easy to understand way and gives an overall view of the particular investment we are discussing.
Paul is not only a fantastic IFA, but he also speaks on a level that even I can understand when it comes to finances. I was in a bit of a mess with some insurances we had been basically mi-sold when buying a new home, Paul spent an hour and half of his own time helping me not only decide which stay and which go, but the general advice was fantastic for me.
Paul has also sorted Professional Indemnity Insurance for my business and has finally got me on the road with a pension, two things I have been putting off mainly because I did not understand what I needed and secondly I didn’t want to be sold something that was not right.
Both professionally and personally Paul is a great contact to have and top drawer in his niche.
Paul is a friendly, approachable person. He explains things clearly and doesn’t mind repeating things if you don’t quite understand things. Everything he promises to do he does. He contacts us regularly and doesn’t mind us contacting him and always gets back to us – he doesn’t make us feel as if we are wasting his time. We are very happy with the way Paul deals with us.
First impressions count. Paul is an articulate, knowledgeable and personable individual who gives excellent financial advice. I was impressed as he took the time to understand the complexities of my situation, reflecting on the discussion and then sending through relevant material to aid my understanding and to inform future planning. Paul thank you – what I found helpful was the email you sent through in response to my questions. As a reflective practitioner it is always helpful for me to see a summary of key points discussed.
