Pensions

“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 autoenrolment (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

“Wayne and I worked together over a number of years, developing and improving A-Plant’s stakeholder pension proposition. Wayne is extremely customer focused 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.”

Catherine Rhodes, HR Manager, A-Plant

“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 autoenrolment was on its way for our firm.”

Alison Judd, The Norwegian School, London

“Benchmark created a stakeholder pension scheme for our employees and we used Wayne as our professional adviser, then working on behalf of HSBC. Wayne’s knowledge is encyclopaedic and he quickly found the right product for us and the team, along with making the set up and ongoing administration easy and low cost. Over the next few years, we used Wayne for a variety of other specialist financial advice and were always very happy with the results and delivery of each project. He is very easy to work with, personable and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend his services.”

Mark Alexander, Managing Director, Benchmark Retail Services

“I have used Wayne to provide a broad range of financial advice during the past 10 years, both as an independent and corporate adviser in both business and personal matters. Wayne has always been honest, knowledgeable and has given the best advice which has continued to yield results time and again. A true expert in his field and highly professional, personable and with unquestionable integrity.”

Karim Fatehi MBE, United Corporation

“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 mum’s money for me. We have annual reviews and she now oversees our finances as well as our wills,life insurance [protecting you],and pensions. If I have any queries I am not sure about she is always more than 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 their 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 oversee my finances. Thank you, Christine for all your ongoing support.”

“I approached Christine 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.”

Sandra Allee

“I consulted Christine regarding my three existing pension plans in order to see if I was getting the best performance from the fund managers. 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.”

David Berner

“I would highly recommend Christine Tucker for her complete honesty, integrity and professionalism throughout all the dealings I have had with her for both my pensions and my mortgage. She has always acted very kindly in explaining everything throughout every transaction, and talking through all my possible options. She has always been there both personally and on the phone when I have needed further explanation or clarification on certain points.”

“Andrew was a hero: not only did he find a company who would take me on, but he also got me a fabulous mortgage that I could afford and took so much of the stress out of the situation. Andrew was then able to sort out what I did with the pension money from my ex-husband and I now have it invested. He also ensures that we have a six-monthly review on the performance of the pension investments.”

“The first telephone conversation I had with Sajjad was extremely encouraging. I had been looking for a qualified IFA to help facilitate my financial plans for a while. Sajjad has a ‘can-do’ attitude as well as full financial product coverage which means it may be possible to put in place a complete financial solution with Sajjad. After an initial telephone call, key documents were exchanged by the end of the day. Very efficient. Full fact-find. All looking very positive.”

“I had [had] a really bad experience with a previous adviser who had made my pension very complicated. Sajjad brought a sigh of relief as he was able to untangle my worries with his knowledge and experience. I am very happy how Sajjad handled my case and sorted out my pension.”

“I needed someone to review my father’s pension. My father had limited knowledge about pensions and how they work, so I decided to engage a professional. Sajjad was very helpful and made everything easy and understandable. Sajjad was very professional and knew exactly what had to be done – my father and I are very happy with the plan which is now in place.”
