Roger was very helpful and answered all of my questions in a clear and concise manner. He was very easy to engage with and he has an affable manner about him. I would gladly use Roger again for inheritance tax advice (or more general investment advice too).

April 2024

I have been advised by Roger for about 20 years. I was in need of retirement income advice, and Roger was recommended by my accountant. Having got to know Roger and worked with him over the years, I have complete confidence. Having not been in a position to put enough aside in my pension "pot" during my working life, Roger has advised and managed to "stretch" my pension pot.
