“In the past, we had often felt overwhelmed at the thought of financial planning and the sheer number of pension and protection products available on the market.  Kris and the Brimmond team have simplified that process and have been exceptional in providing sound advice.  Kris thoroughly investigated the best options for our pensions, income protection and life insurance, after doing a deep dive into our financial situation and listening to our needs for now and in the future.  Kris’s communication skills are excellent. He explains clearly and simply and always follows up with emails and phone calls. We feel valued and looked after.  We run a small business and have a young family and we feel secure in the knowledge that Kris has worked hard to get us the best policies for our situation & has our best interests at heart.  We would highly recommend Brimmond Financial Planning to all.”
