Recommended Financial Advice . . . testimonials from our clients

“Having the ability to call on unbiased and friendly advice when it came to our mortgage and life insurance needs was invaluable. Alison showed us products that met our requirements and our budget perfectly and I’m very happy with the service she provided”

“Alison made us very comfortable and filled us with confidence when providing us with advice on mortgages, life insurance, pensions and our investments. Being independent Alison was able to find the best deals around to suit our needs and budget. We would recommend Allisons Financial Planning without question. “

 “The service is efficient, prompt and responsive.  The tailoring to (our) individual needs is impressive.  Questions are answered fully and with huge patience when the complexities of legal and financial options are being explained to us.  We always feel that we are really being looked after.

We regard Ms Baglow as a friend who happens to be extremely experienced and knowledgeable in all matters financial – and who has an excellent appreciation of personal relationships and needs and gives her time and commitment to ensuring that we get a really good deal.  We feel confident and secure and are often convinced that we are her only clients.”

Mrs Sharpe

“I found Allison’s Financial online from abroad. I was living in New Orleans, Louisiana, and relocating to Barnstaple for work. Despite the excellent credentials presented on the site, I was a little nervous to do business of this magnitude “sight unseen”. Once call fixed all anxiety as Allie turned out to be bright, crisp and very well informed.

As a person who had been out of the country for a dozen years, I was having real trouble finding a lender. My own UK bank, where I had carefully maintained an account for some 28 years, felt that I didn’t have an adequate history on my return to the UK.

Other high street banks booked meetings with “advisors” who were entirely unable to help once I failed the residency hurdle.

Allie worked valiantly and, as a really good whole market advisor, she identified a very rare product – an expat mortgage which essentially used statement documents from overseas to establish creditworthiness.

Anyone who has tried to do this knows it is very, very hard to achieve.

Because the market in Barnstaple contains some peculiar contradictions, I ended up losing the first property I tried to buy because it did not appraise for a price  which the vendors were willing to sell while my second property choice went the other way – I was gazumped. The third property I managed to secure – and I am very, very happy that this is how things worked out.

Allie stood by me every step of the way. The service was personal and professional. She worked out of hours to accommodate my irregular work schedule and international time zones. She worked quickly to meet unreasonable deadlines and was patience itself when things didn’t go to plan. She handled the reality that I had the wrong documents in the wrong country and that the post took 4 weeks to deliver things which were needed right away. She scanned, emailed, faxed and phoned until everyone was happy and everyone got paid.

I feel badly about how small Allie’s fees were. She earned them many times over and never complained. She fixed things I hadn’t imagined could go wrong without stint until the job was done and stuck rigidly to the small fixed fee we had agreed at the outset.

This is the only financial professional I have ever really enjoyed talking to and absolutely the only one I have ever missed when our business was done.

Hopefully I will manage to put by some savings for the future. That way I’ll have a reason to work with Allie and her company again in the future.”

Cash ISA, Savings and Shares ISA explained

financial planning with isa cash isa and investmentsA Cash ISA or Cash Individual Saving Account to give its full title is similar to a normal savings account in that you can take cash out whenever you wish. The difference is the interest is not taxed. The tax man in 2012 got an extra £500 million in tax because people did not make full use of their cash ISA allowance. So you need to consider how wisely you are saving and setting aside your money.
