  • “Having worked with Stuart and knowing his integrity, honesty, professionalism and financial services experience, I had no hesitation in instructing him to look at my UK frozen pensions. Stuart of Holborn Assets provided an excellent service combining all my pension funds into one easily managed product, a QROPS, which is gaining in value for the first time in years. Stuart provided a product to suit my individual needs with great flexibility for the future. I wish I had done it years ago. Stuart’s knowledge and understanding of the international pension market really is superb. I will recommend Stuart to friends, family and colleagues.” – Craig E.

    “With my wife being from the UK we were aware that she had various frozen pensions in England but were unsure on how to find out the values, who the providers were and we
    did not know what we could actually do with them. I contacted Stuart Bichard from Holborn Assets. Stuart explained everything extremely professionally and we both fully understood our position and the benefits of both QROPS and SIPP pension schemes. We signed a letter of permission with Stuart and within weeks we knew exactly the value of the frozen pension money we had in the UK and rather than the funds being in lots of different pots, we consolidated them all and moved them offshore. We were both so pleased with the advise and service, we will both continue to use and of course recommend Stuart.” – Bilal H

    “Being an expat I was keen to find out what value I had in my pensions in the UK, I was recommended Stuart Bichard. Stuart’s knowledge and advice was so helpful, and within a few weeks, I knew the value of my pensions and all my options moving forward. I will have no hesitation in continuing to use Stuart at Holborn and would recommend him to my friends, colleagues and family.” – Helen B.
