Geoff and Elizabeth: Private Clients


Geoff and Elizabeth are both retired and have been clients of gpfm for a few years now. Scott Atkinson set up pensions for both of them in 2015 and continues to have half yearly review meetings with the couple.

What happens in the ongoing review service?

During these meetings they discuss their current circumstances, income and expenditure, investment risk and financial objectives. In preparation, we produce a valuation report which shows Geoff and Elizabeth where they are currently invested and the risk profile of that investment at the time. It also shows them what the investment has returned since the last meeting.

“We discuss and review how our pension is going and check-in on how we are living. We spend six months in the UK and in six months in Texas,” say Geoff and Elizabeth. “We also bought a fixer-upper house four years ago when we retired and want to make sure we can keep working on it.”

How have the meetings been helpful?

“Yes, absolutely. Scott explains things in a way that makes them easy to understand, especially for me,” says Elizabeth. These meetings are an opportunity for Scott to reassure the clients and let them know they are in good financial health.

How would Geoff and Elizabeth describe their experience with gpfm?

“Excellent, it is always a concern when selecting a financial adviser, but we really liked gpfm’s story and profile on their website. Then when we had our initial meeting, we were treated so well by Scott and the team.”

“We would certainly recommend Scott and gpfm to anyone. We were worried about spending money at one point, but Scott reassured us and said we could check-in every month if we wanted to.”
