David Wickham Testimonial

Steve and his colleagues at People & Business are a credit to their profession.  Steve took over my pension investment a couple of years ago, at the time I was very nervous about transferring it out from the scheme it was in, but Steve gave me all the reassurance I needed and was very clear on the risks / benefits. He dealt with the transfer professionally and efficiently and kept me informed at every step of the way.  I chose to deal with Steve and People & Business as he had been highly recommended by my colleagues who had been through the same pension transfer process.  From the first time we met I was impressed by Steve’s mix of professional advice with a personal touch.  He has the ability to explain complicated subject matter in a way that I can understand.  As a result I feel engaged and involved in all aspects of my investment.    In all my interactions with Steve I feel like he understands me and my needs and talks to me in a clear and simple manner.  I have absolute trust in his advice and guidance and feel like my pension is in safe hands.

You are professional in every way.

As you know I have recommended you and your services to several other people of the years, I shall continue to do that. I believe you are an excellent Independent Financial Adviser and I trust you completely.

I will update my state pension estimate and send you the appropriate proof of it.

Thanks again for all your help over the years.

The transfer of my pension from my previous employer to a private pension was a ‘massive’ decision and required a number of personal and financial considerations to be taken in to account. Thanks to your understanding of my requirements, and more importantly your knowledge of the financial sector, you were able to investigate and report back with the options available to me – and then take time to discuss in some detail.

As a result I transferred to a private pension and I am so pleased that I made that ‘massive’ and important decision.

I also fully appreciate that you are personally able to fully review my financial circumstances on an annual basis to assess past performance and my future requirements.

Just a quick email to say tomorrow is my last day at The Co-operative Bank Plc – without your help this could have been in another 7 years time!

The recommendations made to me about your services have proved invaluable. Your sound advice given in “layman’s” terms and the technical in-depth knowledge of the industry and markets has given me the confidence that I have definitely made the right choice transferring my pension fund.

You and your company have a professional approach, and always keep me updated with appointments, agendas and follow up notes.

I have used the services and professional acumen of Steve Speed for many years. In this time he has offered me sound financial advice and planning and I trust his guidance and understanding of the markets completely. I have recommended him to a number of our own clients who have also been very complementary about People and Business.

When we first met 8 or 9 years ago, you guided me on investing an old pension that had been sitting in cash. I am now looking forward to retiring in a far more privileged position; in addition to paying off the mortgage, the fund still exceeds the original amount invested and will shortly be providing me with a very nice income. All of this has been made possible by your help and advice.
