What people have to say about Tony
We have been putting a financial review off but we are at an age where our children are growing up and we needed to do some planning.
Tony Woodward came to visit my wife and I at home and arrived bang on time which was important to us. The first thing to say is that Tony was not trying to sell us anything. He asked us to put some basic facts about our financial situation together - which was useful in itself - and then talked us through our plans. He is calm, experienced and knowledgeable. We both felt that his advice was sound and sensible.
We needed expert advice to clarify some questions we had about our future plans for ourselves and our children. Tony explained the options without jargon.
Honestly, we don't feel he could have done a better job for us.
