Peer review:

Ben’s natural proactive and empathetic style helps him instantly form strong and lasting relationships seamlessly. He has always gone above and beyond to connect like minded individuals and looked to grow on both a professional and personal level. I consider Ben a close friend through our interactions and would be delighted to grow my work with him in the future due to his trustworthy and personable character.

Ben is a very affable individual who works hard for his clients and impresses with his knowledge of investments and asset classes. He is well connected and is an asset to the business.

Private client review:

My wife and I have benefitted enormously from the high level professional input and order that Ben has brought to our financial affairs. He is thorough, patient and always communicates very clearly, he has worked in a very considered way to get to know us both and to get to understand our needs and our hopes. Ben demonstrates, in his working style, a level of thoughtfulness that is rare but very much much appreciated by us.

Private client review:

As a private client of Ben's I feel comforted that my funds are absolutely in safe hands. Ben knows his stuff and is so easy to get on with, a true gentleman also. I couldn't recommend Ben highly enough, keep up the fantastic work and thank you for everything you do for me.

Private client review:

A colleague of mine recommended Ben to manage my investments about six months ago. Ben was (and has been ever since) very pleasant, courteous and ran through the account opening documents, his Investment Proposal and his background in the finance industry. Consequently, my husband and I opened an account with Ben at Tilney and have been impressed by his attention to detail and friendly manner where nothing is too much trouble. Despite being "newbies" to Ben, we are very impressed and encouraged by the regular updates and informative emails from Ben. We are pleased Ben has been nominated for an award and both hope to be part of his ongoing successes in the future.

Ben is extremely personable and highly knowledgeable about investments and the wider world in which private clients exist. As a well-connected person, Ben will always bring together like minded individuals, whether to assist in achieving wider goals for clients or creating the right team of professional advisers for the client. If you haven't reached out to Ben already, I urge you to do so. He will have a profound impact on your business and your confidence in making good financial decisions long-term.

Private client review:

Ben’s the real deal. He’s an incredibly personable guy with a good strong character that isn’t shy to let you know what he’s thinking. He has earned his stripes in investment and can take both the wide angled macro view alongside the micro. His investment advice is always balanced, sensible and committed without being overbearing. I’d thoroughly recommend Ben to anyone looking to link up with a future star of the City.

Private client review:

Having worked over the last 30 years with large investment bank directors, I have never come across anyone with the depth of product and investment knowledge to meet clients' differing investment requirements as Ben, I handle 14 family members accounts from high equity risk levels to the income requirements for trusts and the like. Very few investment advisors/directors these days have had the broad and depth of investment knowledge that Ben has gained in the past, mostly these days limited to in-house funds and corporate offerings with very little product knowledge of the investments, less have any Advisory stock picking skills. Add all that to the high star ratings given for his excellent communication skills, personal relation skills with clients and fees highly competitive within the industry, I cannot find any ares that Ben does not tick the box and most importantly, someone who one can build a reliable long term business relationship based on trust

My colleagues and I have worked with Ben on a number of matters over the past 5 years and have found Ben to be exceptionally personable, responsive, knowledgeable and measured in his approach. He goes above and beyond to ensure client satisfaction. We would have no concerns in recommending Ben to our clients and have done so throughout the course of our relationship.

Personal Injury Settlements

Work with a large number of clients who are the recipient of personal injury settlements, I work with their professional Deputy or Trustees as the wealth manager to manage the award in a tax efficient manner. This regularly includes J/ISA contributions, de minimis pension contributions and a portion being managed in an offshore bond. In addition to investing the money we also ensure their Periodical Payment Orders are correctly adjusted each year and life cover where appropriate can be provided.

Advising two business partners who sold their business

Advising two business partners who sold their business and sat on cash for a long time, they both have a rolled up equity stake in the larger PE backed business and do not require the capital. We have established a plan for the proceeds, drip fed the money in to markets to not expose them to unnecessary volatility given first exposure to investing. Further plan in place for their equity stake which is likely to be realised in coming years. Also need to be able to generate sufficient income to meet expenditure if they start up again in due course and are without salaries for a while.
