An example of a more recent client experience
My wife and I have known Darin for some 5 years now, from when my wife (a recently retired NHS GP) first took personal financial advice from him.
Over the period we have found Darin to be entirely professional and highly skilled. He has always listened carefully to our requirements and concerns, and over the years we have established what both my wife and I consider to be an excellent relationship based on trust and mutual respect. I would assess Darin as being an expert in the applicability of QROPS, though I suspect his skills are considerably broader.
Latterly I too have entrusted Darin with my own pension requirements and I have no doubts as to his continuing expertise and professionalism.
