Morning David, 
 
Just to say that the purchase is completed and I got the keys yesterday! 
Great news, I would like to thank you once more for your hard work and responsiveness. Your expertise has been most valuable as I try to stretch financially. 
I will definitely recommend you to anybody who needs mortgage advice. 
 
Best Regards

Chevening Financial carried out an employee benefits review for a successful local technology company, who have 30 employees. 
 
Whilst the company were happy with the pension and group life schemes they had in place for their staff, they were concerned that virtually all information was communicated to them via an online portal. 
 
The existing adviser conducted a group session once a year where he gave scheme members a general update on pensions and investment markets. 
 
David Hawes-Gatt met with the directors of the company and gathered valuable feedback not just on what they wanted but also what services the staff might like to have from an advice firm. 
 
David took over the administration of the pension and group life schemes in February 2017, dealing with ongoing payments, claims enquiries, auto enrolment obligations etc. Chevening’s contract with the company ensured that online access to information would continue to be available to employees. In addition to this David will conduct annual individual meetings with each employee, to review their personal circumstances, including the performance of their pension funds, a review of their risk profile and providing targeted retirement plans. 
 
Chevening Financials contract with the company resulted in a 30% saving for them in annual fees. 
 
MW the Managing Director commented “It has been a breath of fresh air for our staff since David took over. His personal approach, where he actively engages with our staff, has gone down extremely well. This, together with a reduction in our ongoing fees, has been a real bonus for our company and the employees”.

I have known David Hawes-Gatt for 14 years and in that time he has given me excellent advice on investing my money and my pension. David always leaves me with a clear understanding of my investments and is always quick to get back to me if I have a query. I would have no hesitation in recommending David and his team at Chevening Financial.

I have been with David for over 10 years now and he as always provided me with sound advice for both my pension and saving vehicles. Where appropriate he has advised change and to date, all has done well! Performance has been good and he is always available either to meet up or communicate via phone/email.

David is a very good listener. He took plenty of time to ask many pertinent questions so as to gain a full understanding of our financial situation.Thereafter he came up with well thought through proposal that was a perfect fit for our needs.He kept things simple and ensured that we fully understood the process at every step.His advice has resulted in a considerable reduction in the inheritance tax bill that our son might incur and has put our minds at rest.

"I would highly recommend the services and advice provided by Chevening Financial for anyone wanting to make the most of their financial savings and assets. I started working with them in 2010 when I had a series of complicated financial incomes which needed investing. For someone not familiar with all the options they took me through a well considered strategy and explained clearly and concisely what factors needed to be considered. I was also delighted with the cash flow illustration which showed well into retirement what outgoings and income I could expect. Not only do I think the advice was well worth paying for, as I have already made this up in tax efficiencies and investment growth but I feel my investments are well balanced and soundly invested for the future".

"Chevening Financial have provided invaluable advice to my clients. The Chevening team are professional and proactive and give advice in a clear, easy to understand way. With Paul Harding holding a STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) financial qualification, we can be reassured that our clients are being advised appropriately."

"Dear Rob, I have said before that you are probably the only person I have met that I trust to give me advice on investing money and pensions. Time and again I have asked you endless questions relating to complex clauses and conditions on one policy or another. You have met each with patience, good humour and professionalism. But more than that, you have always left me with the clear understanding that you regard me as a friend and that for that reason alone my affairs are treated by you as of the utmost importance. I have no doubt that you treat all of your clients in the same way. My wife and I derive considerable peace of mind from knowing that if the worst were ever to happen, our three boys would be well provided for." 
MC 
 
"I have known David Hawes Gatt for 9 or 10 years now while I was still working and more recently into my retirement and in that time I have always found David to be particularly responsive to my needs as well as very proactive when it comes to investment advice. Previous advisors I have worked with were always so hard to track down but I like the way with Chevening you always get a quick response. They have a good team and have devised a very good plan for my wife and I to enable us to enjoy our retirement. David takes time to explain everything carefully so you know what is being done and fully understand everything about the investments." 
DW 
 
"What I find really useful is that Chevening’s quarterly portfolio reports are set out in a way that is easy to understand and show at a glance exactly how my investments are performing." 
RW 
 
"Dear Rob, I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to you, the way that you and your company work, to do the ground work, to get the precise information required to give good, sound advice, and to explain to you in a way that you can understand. This is the second time that I have used the services of Chevening Financial, firstly to look at some savings I had and secondly to change my pension funds, which I did not take lightly as this is my future. But with Chevenings advice I have no hesitation in signing the loads of paperwork! I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob Hunt of Chevening Financial."
