What our clients say

I wish that I had been introduced to Sylvia Bentham years ago! In contrast to previous financial advisers that I have encountered Sylvia is straight talking, cuts out all the nonsense and gets directly to the facts.

I am impressed by Sylvia’s commitment to professional development which is not just gaining qualifications but uses these to enhance her services.

Sylvia has provided a logical and understandable approach to my financial needs and uses the most up to date methods to keep track of my investments.

They were invaluable with their down to earth approach. Nothing was too much trouble even when we didn’t understand. We could not be in better hands.

Seven years prior to retirement, my wife and I needed to ensure that adequate plans were in place to ensure a projected standard of living in retirement that would align with our current standard whilst still in full-time employment.

We have been extremely happy with the investments Sylvia arranged for us, but more importantly we have experienced a wonderful customer service over the years and could not recommend highly enough.

I am financially secure, more so than I could ever have hoped for.

My wife and I have been a client for over 10 years. We chose 1st Chartered Financial Planning Ltd because of their Pension expertise, they were one of the few firms with all the relevant qualifications, and truly independent. It was probably the best financial decision we have ever made.

All of the staff at 1st Chartered are helpful and very approachable. We consider them friends.

We receive excellent advice, which when we don’t quite understand is always explained in terms we understand.

I have been a client of 1st Chartered for over 15 years. In common with many busy people my savings and pension arrangements were an ad hoc mixture of private pensions, fixed term and easy access savings accounts, which I felt needed professional input to ensure the long term effective management of my assets for retirement.

Peace of mind is a good feeling. 1st Chartered gives us just that. A safe pair of hands.

I like the fact there is a small team of helpful. friendly and knowledgeable people.
