Today, VouchedFor have released their Top Rated guide for 2022, and we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been included as a Top Rated Firm!
The guide, distributed by The Times, aims to identify and celebrate the UK’s best financial advice firms, all based on client feedback. We couldn’t be prouder to have been selected in this group.
To be included in the guide is a huge honour, only 53 firms qualified throughout the UK. We’re thrilled to have been included, but we’re even more proud to say that we’re one of just ten Top Rated firms in London.
What is VouchedFor?
For those of you who may not have heard of VouchedFor, it’s an online system created to review financial advisers. Just like TripAdvisor, but for financial advisers.
In the main, reviews are completed by clients, as this is the best way to get accurate feedback, from people who have first-hand experience. Reviews are based on three key criteria: Service, advice given and value. These criteria are then used to create an overall score out of 5 stars for each and every adviser, which also creates an overall score for firms.
Top Rated Advisers
Not only have we qualified as a Top Rated Firm, but we’re excited to announce that all our advisers have been included as Top Rated Advisers. To be included is a fantastic moment of recognition for them and everything they do to support our clients.
What Andrew’s clients are saying:
Andrew currently has a score of 4.8/5 from 97 reviews. One of his clients recently said this about what it’s like to work with him:

What Steve’s clients are saying:
Currently, Steve has a score of 4.7/5 from 78 reviews. One of his more recent reviews included this feedback:
“Steve helped me to look at my circumstances and financial needs in the future. He always made me feel he really wanted my finances to be positive. I was treated with understanding, and never “talked down” to, as can happen when you are elderly. He is an expert in the areas where I needed information and knew how to guide me. I trust his expertise and integrity. Steve responds immediately to any communication, and deals with any requests efficiently.”
