"Richard helped me with pension advice as a work pension matured. I was extremely pleased with the initial advice and outcome. He then provided a full financial service for me covering savings and an investment portfolio, specialist pension transfer and annuity drawdown. Long-term financial planning for the future has been key. Along the way, he has helped with mortgage and inheritance planning.

I have been very pleased with the outcome of all the advice I have received, and have a stable financial platform for the future which was the outcome I was seeking."

Our Story

In 1978, John Hitchell had just taken the difficult decision to leave a secure job with a high street bank and was looking for the next challenge. He hated the corporate, target-driven culture of the banking industry and felt there must be a better way to treat clients.


It was fair to say the bank was very traditional, even insisting that John shave off his beloved beard as ‘it was scaring the older customers.’ However, the final straw was having found his dream home, his mortgage application being denied because it ‘had more bedrooms than he needed,’ only to discover that his manager had bought the house instead.

Our previous financial adviser retired and he recommended James. A very good recommendation too!  James has become a trusted friend as well as a very professional adviser.
