We understand pensions. You’ll understand us.
Pensions are complicated.
Our advice isn't.
Honesty. That's our approach summed up in a word. We founded Simple Financial Advice to offer an independent alternative to what we know can be an unnecessarily complex, costly and confusing pensions market.
That's why we're determined to do things differently. We believe the job of experts is to understand complex things so well that they can explain them in simple terms. We listen, we analyse, we listen again. Then we provide clear recommendations in plain English. Clients welcome our independence, our no-nonsense approach and the savings that our transparent, fixed-fee approach delivers. With no commission or hidden costs, you know exactly what you'll be paying. Better still, you'll be paying less. And you can be confident of clear, impartial advice from independent pensions and finance experts.
Specialists with the personal touch
Our team has over 80 years' experience. In that time we've been advisors, consultants, planners and trainers. And we've helped hundreds of people to choose the right pension scheme, optimise existing arrangements, make sense of over-complicated portfolios and readjust after receiving faulty advice elsewhere. We believe that life in retirement is there to be enjoyed. We can help with that by freeing you from pension worries.
What makes us different?
We communicate our costs in simple language, without the usual jargon
We provide full transparency so there are no hidden surprises
We ensure a quality service at a fraction of the price of many traditional advisors

Janet needed help working out her retirement income. She had 3 pension arrangements and had been made redundant from a senior position aged 56.
I was approaching my defined pension retirement date and was unsure of which option to take.
"I was very happy with Mark's recommendations and pleased with the way he dealt with my situation and as a result have moved my pension to the new provider."
"The whole process was made really straightforward and they took the time and care to properly understand my situation. The results have been excellent!"
"Because I live in a rural area, having a specialist advisor that I am able to talk to from the comfort of my own home makes a massive difference to me."
