I have known Mark Hughson in his capacity as a Financial Advisor working for Prudential for two years.
Prior to making his acquaintance I was considering early retirement and consequently keen to understand my options. Based on his experience of dealing with Mark directly, a colleague recommended him as a possible source of financial advice. Via this "word-of-mouth" connection an appointment was made and subsequently my wife and I transferred a range of pensions to a Prudential Retirement account.
The complete process of assessing the pension transfer offers from my employer's pension schemes, understanding our future financial requirements and objectives, suitability for reinvesting and initiation of the transfer of funds was carried out by the Prudential in line with explanations given by Mark and a specialist colleague on technical aspects of the arrangement.
In our dealings with Mark he was always friendly, knowledgeable and professional in his approach. He listened to our questions and concerns and was able to give clear, authoritative and reassuring responses. Since taking up the financial advice, Mark has provided a prompt response to any further questions arising and has ensured that information requested on the performance of our investments is readily available.
I am pleased to report that so far that the advice to transfer pensions appears to be sound with performance in line with the expectations given by Mark. This has enabled me to retire early with an ongoing income and an increasing retirement fund which my wife and family will benefit from in the event of my passing.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all of the help and support you have and continue to provide to secure mines and my sons financial future.
You listened to what mattered to me and built your advice around this perfectly, ensuring that I can look forward to a great retirement and should the worst happen, by sons are financially taken care of.
Distance was no barrier and I have appreciated the multiple long round trips you have taken to meet with us face to face and are always on the end of a phone in between times if I need an update or to just to sense check the progress of our investments.
Thank you so much – your advice has been game changing for me and I am now looking forward to possible retirement at 55!
I made a tentative enquiry with the Prudential relating to a pension I took out many years ago. Mark Hughson contacted me and offered to come to the house and discuss my existing pension and give me advice relating to other pensions I have with different employers. He came in the evening, which suited me as I work full time.
Mark was very helpful, he explained to me my options and helped me to understand the most appropriate actions to take without specifically advising me to choose one specific approach. His advice enabled me to discuss everything with my husband which actually generated more questions relating to his pension situation and how we could best create plans to suit us jointly. Mark was happy to help answer his questions too and told him how to go about getting more information relating to his pension plan.
Focussing on my situation, and once understanding more facts about annuities and draw down, I felt able to make informed decisions on what was best for myself and my husband which was exactly what I wanted from a pension advisor. I would be more than happy to recommend Mark to anyone and also look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.
Mark has always dealt with us in a very professional manner and his extensive financial knowledge has been invaluable in providing us with sound advice regarding the most suitable options concerning our pensions, savings and investments.
I was looking for someone to advise me on the best way to realise my future plans and you were recommended to me by a colleague.
What a brilliant recommendation!
Since having you come on board as my adviser I have had a much clearer line of sight on what my financial situation looks like in Retirement.
You explain things in a clear and easy to understand way and I have every confidence in your guidance.
The way you approach your work makes me feel that you are in my corner and I’m in a safe pair of hands.
