Testimonials

What do our clients say about us?

I have been a client of Matthew's for five years, 2012 to 2017. I returned from New Zealand with a small nest egg that was needed to support my life back in UK. Matthew was recommended by a friend. During the time he has looked after me, I have appreciated Matthew's careful listening. Understanding that I'm relatively conservative and low-risk. Matthew put together and managed a portfolio of ethical funds for me. His professional and personal support have far exceeded my expectations. Matthew watches the markets all the time, which I neither have the knowledge or the motivation to do. He has clear documentation which he uses to explain the data and his recommendations. Given the volatility of markets, he protects me from having to worry and with Brexit, Trump and North Korea, I know I have a capable, experienced and savvy Financial Adviser to steer me through potential minefields. Matthew always follows visits with an email, attaching everything we have talked about. This means that if I don't 'get it' first time', I can study it afterwards!

I'm delighted with he has helped me achieve and as far as I'm concerned, there is nothing that Matthew could do better as my financial adviser. If there's something happening I should be aware of, I know he will be in touch immediately. Matthew Burman is exceptionally bright, but he's also a family man and very caring. He wants me to do well and I was very lucky to have found him.

I have managed my own investments for approximately 20 years, but it came to the stage where I was investing fairly significant sums of money, had less time to focus on it, and was also investing on behalf of other family members. I decided I needed a second opinion. It is a year since I first met Matthew and he has been very helpful. He is friendly, responsive to my random emails, and very knowledgeable. One of the reasons I selected him was because he lives locally, but I now realise he travels across the country to meet his clients. The ability to meet me at home was important though since I wanted my wife to be involved in the process as well. He recommended I move investment platforms (and as a result the overall cost of investment has fallen) and the performance of his selected investments is better than those I was invested in before. He offers a flexible approach, ranging from DIY investing with advice (which I use) to fully managed investing.

Matthew remains in contact; regularly reviews our portfolio and circumstances; he advises but never pressurises. He is very knowledgeable, and we trust him. We have recommended Matthew to others and we know they are also pleased with his advice. Added to which Matthew is a personable man. Matthew has been handling our finances since the early 1990s (I know he doesn’t look old enough!!) and in that time, we have never had cause to be unhappy with his advice and the outcomes arising from it.

Pat, Malmesbury

Needed investment planning and set up of pensions and retirement plans for me and my employees. I would vouch for my adviser because he offers a professional service in understanding our goals and needs, paying particular attention to our attitude to risk, both for our family finances and my business. He acts as a source of trusted advice for all things financial whenever we need it and has provided us with clear, impartial guidance and always ensured that we fully understood the types of financial products he was recommending if appropriate and why they are suitable. He has also set up an excellent pension and retirement plan for me and my employees and offers a very proactive service ensuring we get very good returns on our investments. He has also helped ensure we have the cheapest mortgage deal which has not been easy to secure in the current climate.

Seb, Bishopston

Matthew gave me a complete, in depth review of my investments. On his advice I changed certain parts of my portfolio which has proved to be financially astute. He was also very helpful and gave excellent advice when my pension matured. At our twice yearly meetings Matthew gives a detailed presentation of how my investments have performed which I find extremely informative. He also provides a hard copy spreadsheet. Matthew is always well informed and gives impartial and appropriate recommendations. He is easily contactable and always conducts himself professionally. He is a good communicator, always enthusiastic and shows integrity. I was introduced to Matthew by my Accountant and I, in turn, have passed on his details with confidence to friends.
