Hi, I'm David Wells

Regional and Global Equity Investments, UK Pensions Transfers

David Says: 'I believe that pension transfers, as they become increasingly competitive, need to be fully understood by a financial adviser. Many of my clients have sadly experienced the opposite. Like me, Holborn Assets is keen to promote the values that matter: openness, honesty and transparency. This is why I like to work at my clients’ pace, ensure everything’s clear and that they have time to think before acting.’

What My Clients Say

‘I found David’s relaxed but professional approach a very pleasant surprise. Finance can be a sector full of pushy ‘won’t-take-no-for-an-answer’ types. David, though, always makes you feel utterly confident, as he comes armed with the best impartial advice and his years of experience. After struggling for years to find a well-balanced and transparent FA, finding David has been such a relief.’James Thomas
