Our Independent Financial Advisers
An Independent Financial Adviser or IFA is someone who’s professionally qualified to give unbiased guidance on financial matters and recommend suitable financial products from the whole of the market. In 2013 new rules were introduced, setting more stringent requirements for the profession and helping to make sure that all IFAs are properly qualified and in a position to offer truly independent advice.

Excellent service and company, I feel assured my future investments/pension is secure. Paul is great, explains everything so I can understand it, nothing is ever a problem, his professionalism is top drawer. Many thanks Paul.
“I was only saying to my wife recently how happy / satisfied we are that we were introduced to Steve quite by chance. Over the last year or so, we’ve had to make the biggest financial decisions of our lives and having Steve to guide us through the pros and cons has been a blessing.”
“I am very satisfied with the level of professional advice given and the personal service I received from Furnley House.”
Pete and Helen are clients of John Woolhouse and we asked them about their relationship with John and how having a good Financial Adviser has helped them achieve their dreams.
Kevin has always given brilliant advice. I have been particularly impressed in how he has explained the process to me as someone who doesn’t understand the financial world particularly well. He has listened to any concerns and done what is right for me.
It was a pleasure to meet Barbara. She is absolutely fantastic, available for advice in person via telephone, email and text. Very kind and supportive through the whole mortgage process. We had a great experience and would definitely ask for her help in future remortgage! Thank you.
