Russell has been helping me with my Financial planning for the last 4 years. What i like is the transparency he gave me when assessing options and is a person i find trustworthy and knowledgeable. I would recommend Russell to others who are considering his services.
- Dominic Pinfold - Event Director - CloserStill Media
Russell has partnered me in my quest to take over the world, one investment at a time and has been nothing but professional and courteous in doing so. His advice and knowledge have been second to none and he isn't afraid of being honest in his judgment of both situations and expectations. Ultimately from my experience Russell has always done what is in the best interests of the client and firmly believes in developing and delivering in the right manner. I can firmly recommend Russell for anyone looking to build for their future.

- Peter Looman - Global Integration Architect, Senior Manager - Verizon Enterprise Solutions
Russell has been my IFA for a couple of years now and is handling a steadily growing portfolio of financial products for me. I have the highest level of confidence in Russell's ability to understand my needs and recommend products that are most suitable for me. His style is transparent, honest and approachable. I never feel like my consultation sessions with Russell are rushed, and there is never an element of "hard sell" attached to any solutions he might recommend. If you are considering consulting an advisor for the first time, or switching to a new one, I would not hesitate in recommending Russell.

Is your Defined Benefit scheme safe? A review provided by the UK Government
I am a true advocate of pension control. My father lost his entire pension in a corporate takeover 22 years ago. That can’t happen now because legislation has made it illegal , but it colours my advice – you only get one go to save for your retirement.
