After spending a few weeks reviewing the various options for improving the security and returns on my savings I was totally bewildered. A friend recommended that I meet with a financial adviser and introduced me to Mr. John Collins from Henderson Stone & Co. Following a relaxed and full discussion about my financial position and requirements he provided me with a range of alternative options to consider. They were all fully explained in Plain English that I could understand and my questions were answered in a similar straight forward manner. I had time to think through all that was discussed before our next meeting. I did decide to accept some of his proposals and the decisions were implemented smoothly and quickly. Throughout our communications Mr. Collins was professional, informative, supportive and most importantly patient. Unlike previous experience of financial decision making I at no time felt pressurised into speedy choices.

Scott Fyffe has helped us tremendously with our financial planning and is a delight to deal with. We both find Henderson Stone very professional, informative and helpful.

I was thinking about early retirement, I wasn’t too sure about Financial Advisers never having dealt with one before. I asked around my work mates for advice about the financial advisers they had used. Henderson Stone & Co Ltd in Dundee kept coming up, so I arranged a meeting with their advisor Scott Fyffe. We talked about so many options that I had to arrange more meetings to get to understand what options I had; these were held at times to suit me and Scott would meet me anywhere I wanted. The meetings were good for me as I learned more about what was going to happen with my pension. Scott took care of every aspect of my pension from there on he dealt with the running of the investments, he consults with me if there is anything happening with the investments. I have 6 monthly meetings to get briefed on how things are going with my investments, I can just get on now with my retirement knowing that he will keep me up to date with everything that effects my investments. My advice to anyone who isn’t sure about your pension is to get advice from a financial adviser who specialises in pensions. I can recommend Scott Fyffe from Henderson and Stone he was really good with me his advice has been good for me.

I was member of a final salary pension scheme with defined benefits and was in situation where I was given opportunity to apply for voluntary termination or relocate. A key part of the consideration was to look at my pension arrangements and whether I was ready to retire early or indeed afford to give up work. A friend recommended Scott Fyffe and we had an initial meeting to discuss my options of remaining within the company DB scheme or transferring out. Early in the meeting, Scott advised the level of detail required to allow me to decide best option and that it was possible that transferring out may not be right choice for me despite my own unique personal circumstances. I was wary of financial advisers going into the process and had read many horror stories but I found it extremely reassuring that the key objective of the review was to support me making an informed decision that was right for me rather than Scott selling me the benefits of his company and their services if I decided to transfer out.
The experience working with Scott and the team at the Dundee office of Henderson Stone has been fantastic. The data provided for me to review was clear, concise and clearly laid out the key benefits and disadvantage of all options. There were several challenges obtaining the detailed level of information required and Scott and the team supported me all of the way through the process and their knowledge and understanding of the subject matter is comprehensive and second to none. I have now transferred out of my company DB scheme and completely satisfied with my decision. My advice to anyone in a similar position would be to review your options, it may or not be for you but it is definitely worth investigating. Given my own experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending Scott Fyffe who I now regard as key part of my financial planning support team.
