"I thought I'd let you know how much we have appreciated your support and, on a number of occasions, the help of several of your colleagues. We've only ever had an excellent experience when you and the firm have taken care of things for us, something we definitely cannot say for certain other firms we've dealt with! As you know, we have in the past recommended you and Pinney Talfourd to acquaintances of ours. Not surprisingly, they too have always been very pleased with the support you've afforded them."

Matthew Newsome, Pacific IFA

"I always felt confident that you would look after my clients. They told me you were professional, efficient and spoke to them in a language they could understand.

I have no hesitation in referring you to my clients and you have only raised the profile of Pacific IFA and our professional connections. Thank you for taking care of my clients and I hope to provide you with more referrals in the coming weeks and years ahead."
