Richard Overson - National Sales Director - Key Retirement Solutions
"I am emailing to say a big "Thank you!" for your help, advice and enthusiasm throughout the rollercoaster ride that is selling a business, perhaps particularly an IFA business. Selling a financial services business, especially in the current climate is, certainly from the viewpoint of the seller, an experience fraught with uncertainties and edged with insecurity. It is something a small firm does just the once so it is vital to get it right and we were very impressed by your staunchness and perception. In short, Michael and I greatly valued your experience and professionalism in arranging the deal struck and would unhesitatingly recommend your services to other IFA practitioners seeking to move to the broad, sunlit pastures of retirement. Our very best wishes for your future success(es)"
