Can you have too much money saved?

Can you have too much money saved?

Many would probably expect me to say that it’s so important to save for the future, and therefore this takes priority. So many people nowadays aren’t saving enough that it seems odd to suggest that maybe you shouldn’t be putting every penny away for that rainy day....

7 mistakes women make when getting divorced ...and how to avoid them

I was lost in a minefield of options, and rather ignorant of how the financial world works. Mary was invaluable with advice on what to do, explaining things, so that I understood fully what would happen to my money and investments. Mary was understanding and did not make me feel inadequate needing help. I now feel secure and my mind is put at rest with Mary’s expertise

– Ruth Dellow

Mary listened to what I wanted. I did not once feel overwhelmed with financial jargon or pressurised to go in a direction I did not want to. Mary has high integrity and strives to do her best for her clients because she actually cares about them.

– Caroline Crowhurst

Mary’s advice is so down to earth and straight forward that I feel I am at last getting to grips with my finances. She explains everything without technical jargon and I always know I can ask any question without feeling it’s a foolish question. Her service is absolutely amazing.
