Today we are proud to announce that a number of our financial advisers have been featured in the ‘2021 Guide To Top Rated Financial Advisers’ published by Vouchedfor and The Times.

The 2021 Top Rated Financial Advisers list recognises the companies and advisers that are making great strides in increasing transparency and delivering exemplary service for consumers across the UK.

The financial advisers showcased in the guide received the highest volume of positive 2020 client reviews on, the ratings site for financial and legal professionals. As well as being endorsed by more than ten clients, each adviser is a fully verified member of VouchedFor. This means they have the necessary permissions to practise from the Financial Conduct Authority, as well as undergoing several other checks and ongoing monitoring.

Ian Balgarnie, Commercial Director at Ascot Lloyd, comments: “Our advisers’ dedication to client satisfaction has been recognised in the most powerful way possible, through endorsement by our clients. This year our advisers have worked especially hard to ensure they helped our clients navigate through such unprecedented times and it is great to see their efforts have been recognised.

“It takes hard work and dedication to not only achieve this status but also to maintain it. They have all set the bar for colleagues and peers across the business and should feel proud of the work they have done. We would like to congratulate them for this achievement and will continue to support them so they can continue to excel on client work.”

"In these uncertain times Lindsay's direction and advice has been priceless. I have peace of mind knowing my financial future is in good hands."
Dec 2020

"Lewis listened to my requirements and took them on board to provide advice and recommendations tailored to my needs. I felt at ease discussing my personal situation with him and I found that the advice I received was honest and trustworthy. I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone seeking financial advice."

"Gemma contacts me on at least an annual basis. When she is able, current restrictions withstanding, she visits me at home. When she initially became my IFA my investments hadn't been reviewed for several years. She advised me and we were able to move my portfolio into more suitable investments. She is at the end of the phone or email if I have any questions or queries and always gets back to me in a timely fashion."
