  • "I have no hesitation in recommending Phil Clerkin as a financial advisor. He has been handling my account for several years now and I have always found his judgment to be sound regarding my personal finances. He takes the time to ascertain his clients individual needs and does not apply any pressure regarding which choices I make. He also responds to my messages immediately which means I feel confident that he is in a position to react to market changes when necessary."

    Mr R. Morris Oswestry
  • "My wife and I have been with Phil Clerkin for 15 years. My name is Roy Viner, my wife is Jenny and we have found Phil, Honest, understanding, and very helpful. Myself and Jenny find some financial matters difficult to understand. There is so much Jargon and Figures to be unravelled. Phil has been our advisor from our first investment, he explains everything to us in simple terms, so that we understand. We get the best advice for our needs for now and also in the long term. We are lucky to have found Phil, and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone."
