"Platinum have enabled us to live the lifestyle we've always dreamed about"

Jan:

Hi, my name is Jan White, and I’ve been a client of Platinum for four years. and my adviser is Jonathan Scott.

Rob:

When I retired, basically, I needed to provide myself with a pension. I had a pension pot, I had various investments and I needed to decide how best that they could fulfill my aspirations of providing me with a pension and a good lifestyle. When it came to making a decision about financial services, it was apparent that he was a financial adviser. When I looked around, I chose him because the relationship that he showed from the financial services point of view, was very professional.

Jan:

I’ve never had a financial adviser, so it was very hard at the start to decide how I should go about getting a financial adviser, using a financial adviser. When I contacted Platinum, they gave me some very good advice. I found them to be very professional. and very clear. Over the years, what Jonathan has been able to help me with, is making a decision on how I should use my pension, how I should use my lump sum, and how I should actually withdraw that. He also takes into account any outgoings, any extra income like state pension, and as a result of that, he then allocates what he thinks, all in discussion with us, we need for a good standard of living.

Rob:

When I’m working with Platinum, I’m very confident that my money is being well looked after. I don’t have any worries, it’s very, very safe. Anything that might be going on, if there are any issues that come up, through the companies that it is invested with, the team at Platinum, always seem to be on top of the case. and deal with it very effectively.

Jan:

I feel that our financial future is very secure, to enable us to live the lifestyle that we’ve planned for many years, and 4 years into our retirement, I think that we are really realising the dreams that we’ve had for a number of years.

Rob:

The three words I would use to describe Platinum are professional, confidential and reassuring.

Jan:

I think the best thing about working with Platinum is that I know that they’re reliable. I also know that if I was feeling vulnerable in any way in respect to finances, that I could go to them. and I would get a response very quickly. A response that will be said to me, in layman’s terms, very easy, so that on that basis, I could make the right decision about what I want to do with my finances going forward.

Rob:

The best piece of advice that Platinum have given me was the allocation of my pension pot, and basically drawing it down so that it’s tax effective, and giving me the income that I require. I’d recommend Platinum to anyone that is needing financial assistance and advice, because they really do a very comprehensive review of an individual’s personal circumstances before making any decisions and give you all of the options that are available, highlighting the benefits and the risks.
