Having been disappointed elsewhere, I found Grosvenor Consultancy and was introduced to Amanda. She quickly understood my retirement needs, gave sound practical advice, and fully answered all my questions. Amanda’s pleasant manner gave me confidence and she worked very efficiently in making investments which will achieve my long term financial goals.
Amanda has guided us through the maze of the investment landscape with genuine care and personal attention to our unique context. We have always experienced a high level of satisfaction with her advice and guidance and feel that she is an authentic professional in her field. Discussing financial matters can on occasion, touch a sensitive spot, however Amanda's approach and personal style ensures that these conversations and subsequent suggestions remain aligned to our focus areas whilst being respectfully managed. We're pleased with the performance of our investments thus far and know that Amanda's role in this has been pivotal.
Amanda was quick to understand our family finances and long term objectives, gave sound advice suited to our needs and, above all, remains an excellent sounding board giving us constructive advice at our annual review. The whole process motivates us to keep our affairs in good order.
I first met Amanda at a business networking event and soon after asked her to advise on our financial and retirement planning. She patiently worked her way through twenty five years of insurance policies, pension information and other relevant paperwork and came up with a carefully planned and clearly explained strategy to suit our needs. Amanda has since met with us regularly to review our plans and to respond to changing situations. She is personable, cheerful, friendly, very professional and happy to answer any questions.
I have benefited from Amanda’s independent advice for more than ten years, she has helped me with my Pensions and other savings. The advice offered is sound, the options are always explained in a clear and professional manner and the pros and cons are spelt out. Finance can be a very dry topic, but Amanda makes it interesting and intelligible and I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and colleagues.
Amanda has been our financial adviser for almost ten years. In that time she has always been highly professional and meticulously prepared, while offering advice that suited our situation and took into account our approach to risk. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to others seeking financial advice – in fact, we have!
I first sought Amanda’s advice when I was thinking about retiring and wanted some help on how to get the best from my savings and to sort out my pension. I hate dealing with financial matters and find a lot of it completely incomprehensible. I think I might be a bit “number phobic”. I immediately warmed to Amanda who took time to find out what sort of person I was, how much I already understood (nothing much) and what kind of life I wanted in the future. She gave me the confidence to ask questions and she managed to explain things in a way I could understand – not too many numbers!
I trust her completely. She presents information in a way that allows me to make informed decisions about my future financial arrangements. Amanda is knowledgeable, ethical and certainly does not give the impression of only being interested in making money. She genuinely wants to put me in a position where I can live the life I want to live, with enough money and without having to worry about my finances, or even think too much about them. I thoroughly recommend Amanda to anyone, but especially to people like me who want to organise their finances but are a little bit scared.
Whenever I have needed advice for my clients, Amanda has always been able to provide the answer. Quite often, Amanda will give several alternatives and options to ensure my clients get the best result.
My husband and I had spent some time thinking about getting somebody to look at our finances. I asked Amanda to talk to us. She managed to direct her talk to both my husband, who is detail orientated, and to me, who has little interest in finance. She suggested a plan based on our circumstances and ensured that it took little further effort from us. She is attentive, prompt in answering questions, friendly and expert. I would highly recommend Amanda and her ability to talk in plain English about finance.
The Financial Services world needs more Amanda Barnetts – she is the consummate professional, whilst always maintaining the human touch.
Over a number of years, she has provided me with clear, well-informed financial support, enabling me to take control of my overall financial portfolio, and steering me towards the most secure financial position. She has not been afraid to challenge my assumptions, providing me with clear options, based on an honest view of my long-term security. Her approach has always been to support my family’s best interests, which I value and appreciate.
Financial review sessions with Amanda are informative, and even fun! I could not be in a safer pair of hands.
A few years ago, I reached a point in my life where I needed to sort out my finances and I did not know where to begin. Although I run my own business, I was naive when it came to my own personal finances. A friend recommended Amanda and this was a turning point in my life. Amanda helped me to sorted out my finances clearly explaining my options as we went along. I always feel comfortable asking Amanda about points that I do not understand or need further clarity on. Amanda is a lovely lady and I consider her as a friend as well as my Financial Adviser.
When I needed financial advice to sort out my multiple small pensions Amanda was recommended to me.
Amanda is a patient advisor who gives financial advice in simple terms which is so important for those of us who have struggled to understand all the jargon and government changes over the last few years. I have been very impressed with her professional and friendly approach and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
I have worked with Amanda for over 10 years and would not hesitate to recommend her - she is knowledgeable about all aspects of financial services (including pensions, investments, protection, etc) and very personable. Amanda is also highly ethical in her relationships with her existing and potential clients.
If you need help sorting out your pensions, insurances and investments Amanda is the person to go to. She is professional, reliable and very friendly and provides a services that is tailored to you. I have used her on a number of occasions now and have been very pleased. Amanda explains everything very well and works for your best interests. Highly recommended.
I have been assisted by Amanda in both my personal and professional capacity in relation to financial matters. She is highly professional, always helpful and friendly and very astute. I have recommended Amanda to a number of clients and will certainly continue to do so.
