Drawing down my Pension was a big financial decision and I was very happy I chose Guardian Wealth. Michael clearly explained my options to me and dealt with my insurance company to make sure it went smoothly. I now meet with Michael every year to make sure my retirement plans are on track. I have no hesitation in recommending Guardian Wealth.

Trying to map out a personal financial plan is not an easy task. As most business owners know, we spend so much of our time making sure our business is successful, we don’t always have the time or the ability to understand what our personal finances will look like 20 or 30 years from now. Michael, in Guardian Wealth, was able to show me what I needed to do now to ensure I was going to be financially independent when I am older. We meet every year to review progress and I am more than happy to recommend him and Guardian Wealth.

Like most business owners I put most of my energy into making sure my business is successful. Very often that leaves little time to stop and look at my bigger picture financial position, and plan for the future. I have been working with Michael in Guardian Wealth for a number of years now and it’s great to know that he has a financial plan in place for me, and meets with me regularly to make sure I am on track. I am happy to recommend Guardian Wealth.
