Clive Harper: A retired business ownerDecember 12, 2019
I've been a client of Globe since 1996. When I got made redundant I started my own consultancy business and I needed some advice on pensions, life assurance and all the things that you need if you're not gainfully employed. The good thing is John's been able to address both my business requirements with the consultancy work and also my personal requirements with pensions, life insurance and that sort of thing.
The good thing I’ve found with dealing with John and Globe over the years is that they are very open. John particularly is a very open, very honest, likeable person. And so every investment we’ve ever done, every change of circumstances we’ve ever had, I’ve always had a lot of confidence in the fact that we were doing the right thing.
Elizabeth Morton: Planning for retirementDecember 12, 2019
We'd been quite busy. My husband's an actor. He'd been working pretty much non-stop. I was working as a writer, but I had two children, so it was really juggling our careers. But we really weren't taking much care of our finances. We have a brilliant accountant, but the finances were something that we needed advice on.
We just needed to be a bit more sensible about how we manage our money and how we go forward into the future. I was nervous, but that's why we wanted to go with someone in our community. I think that that's quite important to us. So John and David have been fantastic, partly because they seemed to know when not to be intrusive in terms of managing our lives, but just feel like a steady hand in the background.
Jeremy and Jan Chadwick: Business ownersDecember 12, 2019
We’ve been with Globe for 20-21 years and over those years there are a number of things that they’ve got involved in. Originally it was looking into a mis-sold pension that had happened in a former life. Garry resolved that and actually got us money back. We set up a SIPP and that’s been key to moving everything forward.
We really feel, because we’ve known them for so long, they understand where we’re coming from; they know what will benefit us and how it will benefit us, and we trust them to do that. Working with Globe, I always feel extremely reassured that we’re talking to right people; they’re very knowledgeable and very responsive as well. You feel that they’ve got your back.
Joan Ball: Advising parents in later lifeDecember 12, 2019
I’ve been with Globe and known Tom since 1999. Tom helped my parents and especially when they died he helped me sort out a lot of financial issues there. Tom has helped me immensely in all aspects of my financial life.
Anything that I’ve had a query with I just email and I get an answer. That’s the confidence that I love. My future is secure. I’ve got the confidence and reassurance, and along with that, the honesty and integrity that I find is very important.
John Riley: Equity release adviceDecember 12, 2019
I first started working with Globe in January/February of 2019. The financial problem that we had as a family is that we've got a very large Victorian house, and therefore we would have problems with inheritance tax. And so to try and limit this as much as possible, through meeting Globe and James Male, I decided then to go into equity release.
James, and Globe as an operation, are streets ahead of the competition, which I saw previously. James' advice really has helped and taken a lot of pressure off my daughters. Working with Globe and James the last eight months really has just proved that there are professionals out there. Globe know what they're all talking about and make you feel at ease.
Peter Maple: Advice throughout the decadesDecember 12, 2019
I’ve been working with Globe for some decades. I’ve worked with Garry for a very long time but I’ve always found the support from other members of staff; be it specific advice in particular areas such as mortgages, or replacement mortgages, and certainly the back-office support I think is excellent.
The sorts of problems that Globe have helped me with have been the full range of individual and family finances from mortgages and life assurance through investments and even estate planning and help will-writing and getting all the detail right.
