What our clients say

  • Mrs Langley
    Rob Hopkins has great patience in explaining the intricacies of financial planning to a money novice. I feel sure that I can rely on him for advice that applies to my financial situation. He keeps a firm eye on my investments and advises changes when he thinks it is necessary. My investment pot has grown in value compared to a relation who has a similar amount of money in a bank. The phone is always answered promptly and politely.
  • Mr McGrady
    I needed sound advice regarding several pension pots that I wanted to pool together. Rob helped me to merge my pension pots into a single source of income... the results have far exceeded my expectations. The whole experience has been very satisfying. I don't know if Rob could have done anything more than he has. The results have been spectacular.
  • Mr Edwards
    I needed some help to achieve a comfortable retirement and investment.Rob was recommended through a friend who had total trust in him. Rob has been very helpful with advice and has given me a better approach and direction to savings and pensions. I have only just started saving with Rob and I hope next year that the results will be welcoming. Rob has done a better job than my previous advisers and I feel more comfortable when speaking with him. He explains everything in the old fashion way which is the best way in my case.
    Mr Edwards
  • Mrs Peyton
    For advice on investing money from Inheritance. Rob helped me invest my money in suitable areas based on attitude to risk and my period of investment. My investments are doing well I am very pleased and I am continuing to see them grow. Really happy with Rob, he doesn't mind meeting clients out of office hours which is the only time I can see him.
