‘I have confidence that my adviser understands my investments aims and attitude to risk. I have had friendly conversations and never felt pressure to make a decision I am not happy about. I value the experience and professionalism of my IFA, and I am satisfied that my investment is well-managed’
‘Chris Darling could not be kinder and explain any points we bring up in detail. He is respectful in all ways. Comes smartly dressed and respects our home. Would be very sad to change him.’
