What our clients say

We have used Advice Matters to advise us and manage our finances for over 20 years. At this stage in our lives, we are now seeing things come to fruition and have peace of mind financially that we have reached our goals.

Our friend in Kendal

We've been talking since 1999

I'm very grateful for all Chris's good, solid and useful advice in planning for the future years!

Our friend in London

We've been talking since 2014

I was a bit scared about having a financial adviser until I met Chris Wheatman. He quickly put my mind at rest; no rushing, no selling, just keeping all information simple, in a language I could understand.

Our friend in Bolton-le-Sands

We've been talking since 2019

I have worked with Advice Matters since the business started. Between us, we have regularly reviewed my choice of investments and investment performance. I am pleased to say I am ready for retirement now at the age of 55.

Our friend in Wilmslow

We've been talking since 2004

I have used Advice Matters for about 20 years and have always found them to be a knowledgeable and professional team. My loyalty is to Chris Wheatman personally as he has always been my point of contact. Changing circumstances require changing advice and he has always been able to adapt financial products in a needs-appropriate way.

Our friend in Brazil

We've been talking since 1999

I have been dealing with Advice Matters since I started my first job when I was 17 years of age. The advice that has been given over the past 27 years has been great. Whether it was when I took out my first pension, right through to owning my own house and having to take out life insurance. A company I can recommend to any friends knowing they will be well looked after.

Our friend in Windermere

We've been talking since 1992

Advice Matters have changed my view of IFAs, with a client-focused approach, and a genuine concern for my priorities. I feel that with Chris and his team I have someone really competent at my side.

Our friend in Hereford

We've been talking since 2016
