“The service I have received from MJB in recent years has been exemplary. I was in a job which paid no pension and I desperately needed a Financial Advisor to take on my investments. Fortunately, I had a friend who was with MJB, who took over my investments and I quickly found that they had been put on the right track. I was concerned when he retired, but I needn’t have been when Mark Gordon took over my finances. He is extraordinarily helpful and I now regard him as a personal friend as he is so approachable and I can ask any financial question, however complex. Due to his efficiency, I now have a reasonable pension which more than covers my needs..quite impressive after worrying what I would be able to live on! Another thing that impresses me is that when Mark is on holiday, MJB still have staff that can reliably take over the running of my account. I thoroughly recommend MJB for any financial advice and I bless the day when my acquaintance put me in touch with them.
Best wishes, Mr M H “
“Bryan has been my financial advisor since I took early retirement in 2006 and now advises me, my wife & my Mother-in Law. He is always friendly, efficient, reliable & most importantly talks good common sense in helping us make the most sensible and effective financial decisions. Bryan is also one of the most approachable people you could wish to meet ….a very important trait when discussing financial matters, in my opinion.
Kind regards, Mr L M “
“During our meetings Trevor ensures that I clearly understand the matters under discussion and that all my queries are comprehensively answered. He is thoroughly well briefed and professional in his depth of knowledge about the financial industry. His understanding of it and its products and how they are best applied to enhancing my personal situation is superb. In fact his enthusiasm for his subject has even kindled my interest, to the point where I now read the financial news with nearly as much interest as the rest of the paper! I have thoroughly recommended Trevor to friends and would have no hesitation in doing so to anyone seeking a thoroughly reliable independent financial adviser. My personal financial circumstances have never before been so well organised or productive. I am extremely happy with MJB’s services.
Best wishes, Miss L D “

“Bryan Hodges has been our family financial advisor since we moved to the area 28 years ago and over time he has soundly advised us on numerous types of investments, the latest being the most complicated of them all – for my husband’s pension transfer. Bryan is very friendly and reliable, but most importantly, he discusses the financial advice in terms that we can understand. I have recommended Bryan to friends and colleagues in the past and have no hesitation in doing so in the future, to anyone seeking thoroughly reliable independent advice.

“When deciding what to do with our endowment fund, we had no hesitation in entrusting the role of financial advisor to MJB. Mark was immediately approachable and informed us clearly of our options and the possible results. MJB has always been available to answer any questions we have had and has always given us time in addition to reliable advice. Our investment has had positive results and we are updated regularly on its progress and why exactly it is progressing at its current rate. I would recommend their service every day of the week.
Thanks, Mr T S ”
“As I was approaching the ripe age of 60 and the termination of my pension fund I started looking for help as to what to do with the fund. I researched several companies in the local area through the Internet looking for other people’s comments on the companies which they had dealt with. I was impressed with the comments that other customers had made about MJB, so I made an appointment to visit Bryan Hodges offices. I have found Bryan to be very helpful throughout all the changes that have taken place over recent years. He explained the options to me and how best to proceed to provide a drawdown pension for me in the future. I would also mention that in the period between the initial meeting and the commencement of the drawdown pension the fund increased dramatically, which is all down to Bryan Hodges advice throughout that period. I would have no problem in recommending MJB, in fact I have all ready recommended the company to several friends and colleagues.

“We found Bryan to be every bit as efficient and approachable as Mike and Heather (original owners of MJB). In fact, when it became apparent that my wife was struggling with mobility issues, Bryan was very quick to suggest that he could attend our home in the future. Bryan was very helpful when my wife passed away. He produced all the paperwork for the accountant’s needs at the time of probate and is currently helping to re-shape the portfolio to suit my sole requirements for the years ahead. I would have the utmost confidence in recommending Bryan to any future client.
Yours sincerely, Mr D M “
“I enquired on the FSA website to find a reputable IFA to ascertain the best thing to do with my pension as I could foresee the need to gain access to it soon. I chose MJB for advice. I have to say that their consultant, Trevor Charlwood, was very efficient, concise and presented options to me in a simple non-technical manner that I could understand. I was quite pleasantly shocked when he came back to me with a solution that provided a monthly cash income of double the amount my insurance company would offer. I am also pleased to say that his selection of funds for my pension are such that I have taken very little of my initial investment, and growth has compensated for the income I’ve taken. Mr Charlwood comes bi-annually to discuss my pension and make suggestions. He is a pleasant, professional, helpful and approachable man whom I trust implicitly with my pension needs. Thank you MJB Partnership and of course Mr Charlwood.
Kind regards, Mr I C ”
