Ken Palframan
HR Director, A-Plant

“Wayne worked with us at A-Plant helping us to develop and market our stakeholder pension proposition to our employees. He was always keen to explore new ways of making our pension arrangements more attractive and more intelligible to our employees and together we made significant progress in introducing auto-enrolment (long before legislation on the subject), salary sacrifice, retirement planning and scheme governance. Of particular note was Wayne’s ability to ‘connect’ with employees at all levels of the organisation and his success in making pensions and retirement planning relevant to employees who were often sceptical or suspicious about saving for retirement. Wayne put a lot of effort into supporting us as an HR team and ordinary scheme members and I look forward to working with him again in future.”

Mr & Mrs L Jimmison
Personal client

“We contacted Andrew Lee at One Financial Solutions after a recommendation from a trusted friend. Andrew met us at a time convenient to us where we discussed our mortgage and life cover requirements. As a young family we appreciated the clear, thorough and independent advice we received. Our mortgage went through in a timely manner and when our fixed rate expired Andrew was the first person we contacted to ensure we continued to have the best mortgage available to us.”

Catherine Rhodes
HR Manager, A-Plant

“Wayne and I worked together over a number of years, developing and improving A-Plant’s stakeholder pension proposition. Wayne is extremely customer focussed and supported the business to ensure our employees were well advised in respect of their pension benefits. His jargon-free and accessible approach enabled him to win the confidence of our employees and allowed us to significantly increase our pension scheme participation rates. Wayne was an integral part of helping us design and implement innovative and cost sensitive programmes. Despite the ‘dry’ subject matter, Wayne was always affable and able to adapt his style to suit his audience. I have no doubt that these skills will translate equally well in Wayne’s new endeavours.”

Chris Evans
Educational Services Director, SCL (Soccer Coaching Limited)

“Wayne has advised and demonstrated an extensive knowledge of a wide variety of products that I have used personally and professionally.

Alison Judd
Bursar, The Norwegian School in London

“I have had the pleasure of working with Christine over the last four years and have always found her to be professional and trustworthy. She is able to balance the ability to complete all her paperwork and compliance but remain friendly and accessible. She explains things plainly, in terms that laymen can understand and keeps people interested even though pensions can be quite a dry subject. This has been particularly necessary working in a bi-lingual school. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as your pensions adviser and in fact sought her out when we knew auto-enrolment was on its way for our firm.”

Densie Lawrence

“I first met Christine in 2015, it was after my mum had passed away and I had a substantial amount of money to invest. Christine came to my house for a consultation and as soon as I met her I felt at ease and trusted her completely to help me make the right decision . She advised me to take my time and not to rush into anything I wasn’t 100 percent sure about. We met several times and looked at different options and eventually arrived at the right one, Christine invested mums money for me. We have annual reviews and she now overseas our finances as well as our wills ,life insurance,and pensions. If I have any queries I am not sure about she is always more then happy to advise me. Nothing is too much trouble which is why I am more than happy to recommend her to my friends and family. She is meeting with my son and his partner to discuss there financial situation and help them with a mortgage in the near future. Christine is a very knowledgeable and professional lady I was very fortunate to have been introduced to her as I would not want or trust anybody else to oversea my finances. Thank you Christine for all your on going support.”

This was all followed up with full written advice and documentation in a timely and efficient manner. I would definitely recommend Christine Tucker’s Financial Services advice and expertise.”

Sandra Allee

“I approached Christine Tucker as I was looking for some pension advice and she was recommended to me. At our first meeting, I found her to be friendly and approachable. The one thing I really liked was her ability to explain it all simply as pensions and financial matters can be very confusing. Christine researched my pensions thoroughly before advising me of my options. On her advice, I chose to consolidate several small pensions into one fund that has so far performed well.
Sorting out one’s finances is not always the easiest task and it was something I had delayed for many years. However, with Christine’s expertise and support the experience was not as daunting as I had anticipated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Christine to anyone who is seeking professional financial advice.”

Christine carried out a thorough examination of the existing pension schemes and a comparison with the market options and was able to demonstrate quickly and effectively that two of the old plans might be combined within a new higher achieving plan. The benefits of carrying out this advice were considerable and I am grateful to Christine for her help.
Christine has a careful considered professional approach and I would highly recommend her and look forward to receiving her ongoing financial consultations.”

Bernie Probst

Mr Howard-Smith & Miss Buckland – Personal Clients

“Stacey and I wanted to write you a quick email to say thankyou to Andy and Kirsty for everything you’ve done for us to get us on the property ladder. Having been recommended to you by friends and family we knew we were in safe hands and from day one all the way to completion you have not disappointed. Being first time buyers the world of property purchasing seemed a little daunting to us and was looking for someone to not only source us an appropriate mortgage but also keep us informed every step of the way as well as answering questions as they arise, not only did you meet our needs but also dealt with us on what felt like a very personal level. We both feel like the standard of service we’ve received from yourselves has far exceeded expectations, whether it be to phone and update us as to the progress of the application or simply just to check that we are happy and didn’t have any questions or queries at the time.
Once again we both want to say a huge thankyou for making what can be a stressful time actually very straightforward and we can’t recommend both of you highly enough.”

Penny Ezechie

“Over the past few years I have worked with Christine to get my financial house in order. Looking at my finances from the perspective of where I am now and what I wanted for the future, we cancelled policies that didn’t really meet my needs and created new ones that better suit my circumstances. I have no doubt that Christine’s advice has saved me money in the long run and created investments that are now performing to my expectations. Her methodical and holistic approach has meant no area of my finances is overlooked. We have prioritised what needs doing and are working through it all. Christine is more than a Financial Advisor to me, she’s also now a friend. I’ve recommend Christine to my friends and family and I look forward to many more years of our successful partnership.”

Ryan Herbert

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank your company & staff for all of your help and assistance with my recent mortgage application, it is very much appreciated with your team doing a fabulous job in helping me through this process and ensuring we got the funds as needed. I will of course recommend you to friends/colleagues where I can and will work with you in 2yrs time when we need to renew/revise the current deal.”

Lee Ramsay

“One Financial Solutions, credit where credit is due, the team have been brilliant in assisting our ‘ not so standard’ mortgage application. Everyone we have dealt with has been absolutely brilliant in ensuring my wife and I secured the mortgage offer. Every step of the way you have advised us impeccably. I only wished I had come to you at the beginning, a lesson learnt for the future. Thanks a million. ”

Mr and Mrs A

“We contacted Paul Keeley at One Financial Solutions having seen his advertisement in a local magazine. Paul arranged to meet us at home and at our convenience, where we discussed our requirements which consisted of Life insurance and Mortgage updating and a new Critical Illness cover. Paul also put us in touch with an advisor to write our wills. In a matter of days, Paul had obtained a full financial picture from us and had sourced all the relevant policies for our requirements. From start to finish, One Financial Solutions were efficient, courteous and thorough and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing sound financial advice. ”

Mr and Mrs D

“I reached out to Paul and One Financial Solutions upon a recommendation from a trusted friend. The timing was perfect as with a new family and house move we needed the financial security and a financial strategy for the foreseeable future. I found the conversations with One Financial Solutions not about pushing product but really identifying with my personal requirements. As a consequence I feel I have the right solutions at the right costs in order to support the coming years for myself and my family. Thank you.”
