What our clients tell us
Within the past 3 yrs Springfield have, with their experience in all aspects of inheritance planning, reorganised our financial affairs with energy and enthusiasm. We strongly feel that our investments are much better placed to benefit our family now, and in the future, than prior to Springfield’s involvement as Financial Advisors.
B & M L Turner, Hale, Manchester
Over eight years we have found Springfield Financial blends impressive detailed expertise in taxation and investment with close attention to understanding our family objectives. Their steady support helps us sleep at night.
Anon, Forton, Lancashire
As a long established retailer (est 1878), we are very busy running our main business. We therefore rely heavily on Springfield looking after our investment portfolio in a proactive manner.
Springfield’s skill set is broad and comprehensive and we have found that they have helped us in many ways. They manage to “out- perform” the market in our general investment portfolio and have a simple and effective reporting mechanism that keeps us abreast of what is happening, without us having to read through masses of paperwork.
Regarding pension management, they have greatly helped us and keep us up to speed with what has been a complex and ever-changing situation due to the introduction of a myriad of new rules by the government.
Historically we have experienced other IFAs and Springfield are miles ahead for the needs of busy SME companies.
