Top Rated Adviser Press Release
Raynes Park based adviser, Dominic Thomas has been recognised as a Top Rated Independent Financial Adviser. Being Top Rated signifies that Dominic from Solomons Independent Financial Advisers is in the top 0.5% of advisers in the whole of the UK making Dominic a great resource for local residents to have on the doorstep.
Comments Dominic: “Being a Top Rated adviser means a great deal and I’d like to thank all the people locally who helped me to achieve it, as we were a pioneering firm, removing commission when we started life in 1999, many of our clients we also pioneers by paying fees for our advice, recognising that these is no such thing as “free advice”. As a result, they have saved a small fortune in investment costs. So many people in the Wimbledon area would be better off if they sought advice on their finances but often people don’t know who to trust with their hard earned cash. I’m thrilled every time I help somebody to achieve their goals and it’s great to know that my clients are happy too.”
Dominic achieved Top Rated status as a result of having over 15 positive client reviews on VouchedFor.co.uk, the independent website which helps people to find a trusted Independent Financial Adviser, Mortgage Adviser or Solicitor. VouchedFor.co.uk is free and easy to use. Visitors search for advisers based on location and services provided. Advisers are then listed based on client reviews giving those seeking advice confidence the adviser can be trusted.
Independent Financial Advisers help people to manage their finances and specialise in many different areas from pensions and retirement plans to long-term care, savings and investments and life insurance. Many IFAs also offer advice on mortgages.
Continues Dominic: “I’m really excited about being Top Rated. As well as the feel good factor I’m also getting a raft of free marketing to promote my business from VouchedFor. It’s great to be recognised for all of the hard work that my team have put in and I can’t thank my clients enough. We are always seeking to improve what we do, develop our services and provide excellent value for money and our clients provide insight into how we might achieve this. I expect to add considerable value to our clients net worth over the years, but more importantly, we attempt to provide real solutions to questions that concern us all – how much is enough? when can I afford to retire? and how can I ensure my money lasts as long as I do? This is where our approach to proper financial planning makes a world of difference.”
