Testimonials and Reviews

  • Having worked with IFP in a professional capacity I found the company to be efficient, professional and friendly; I was well informed throughout. Communication is key and it came as second nature. I would like to particularly mention Simon Evans who went above and beyond – his service is faultless and he genuinely cares about doing a good job. Highly recommend!

  • We had a brilliant experience using Nick as our mortgage adviser. He was very easy to contact, always responded to our questions quickly and gave amazingly clear explanations about a process that can seem very confusing for first-time buyers! He found us a deal for our mortgage which was very competitive and appropriate to our circumstances. He also helped us with our life insurance policy. I have already recommended Nick to several friends and would highly recommend him to anyone else.

  • IFP were recommended to us and we have now been with them for more than 20 years. John has given excellent advice during this time, steering us in the right direction but never putting us under pressure and allowing us to make our own minds up. We meet annually for a review but John is always available when needed. We would not hesitate to recommend IFP to anyone looking for financial advice and guidance including friends and family and, indeed, have done so.
