Here is what some of our clients say about us:

"Increasing complexity of personal financial affairs, and need to ensure adequate planning for retirement, led me to contact Smart Financial.

Ongoing advice being received, giving me confidence that everything is in order.” David Grundy

“We contacted Smart Financial because we were looking to set up a company pension. They facilitated an understanding of my life goals and structured a plan to move towards them financially.” James Cox

“Originally I contacted a financial planner for pensions advice then retirement planning with difficulties due to ill health. Smart Financial were extremely diligent in listening to the problems and reviewing matters carefully, helping my wife and I not to make wrong decisions in difficult circumstances and doing what was decided effectively. I expect their help, advice and support will continue to deliver the best for us. I have chosen to stay with Smart Financial despite the distance to travel. It is my choice that I do so so Smart Financial can't resolve the distance issue. Their help, support and advice has meant that despite the distance I prefer to stay with her and I hope she feels it worthwhile looking after us. In any event we discuss matters either by phone, email or FaceTime but I travel the 2.5 hrs for the review meeting as it is important to me to be face to face for a full discussion.” Mark Hodgson

They have offered financial advice across a number of different fields on a personal and company level. These have included the setting up of an employee pension scheme, Group pension scheme, personal financial planning and life insurance.

To date Smart Financial have assisted with a pension and savings review and also advised on insurance policies - everything that has needed attention has been efficiently and satisfactorily dealt with.  I am very satisfied with the service I have received from them, I feel very confident in their ability and knowledge and the staff members are extremely personable and approachable.  Although I have been with the firm for many years, this is a relatively new relationship but I am very happy with everything so far and looking forward to working more with Smart FinancialBarbara Harrison

“Within a couple of months of working with Smart Financial, they earned our (me and my wife) full trust and confidence. They also sorted out my pension difficulties I was having with previous employers. As mentioned above Smart Financial sorted out not only the original investments I had done but in my dealings with previous employers where her knowledge of what I was able to do and not able to do was invaluable. I think I would still be in the mire without their help. My savings and holdings are now reviewed on a regular basis and we are very happy with advice and returns we have been getting. I also appreciate it has been a good time in the last few years for investments. I would not hesitate in recommending Smart Financial. I have been very pleased with their efforts. I cannot think of anything which could have been done better.” John Hall

The owner was my old companies' pension adviser. Smart Financial conduct regular reviews of my financial planning needs. In the last 6 months they have offered specific advice on the construction of my private pension to enable me to continue contributing to the level I wish. They at the same time gave specific advice on investment for lump sums requiring maximum financial security.

I feel I am set up to achieve the objectives my family has set for the next few years.” George Hughes
