‘Chris’ advantage was that he had come to know and understand my financial well over a number of years. He seems only too willing to keep up to date with proceedings and never seems to be put out by off the cuff enquiries.’

‘Chris is extremely professional; he  is always available to answer any questions I may have; I have confidence in him and have already recommended his services to my youngest son.’

‘I was a client of Chris’ at L&G and was very happy to move over with him. I’ve always found his professionalism a great help since I was widowed and had no experience of investments etc.’
