What our clients say

“Matt had been my personal adviser for over ten years, following on from when his father Peter retired. He has always taken a keen and professional interest in my various Investment/Pension portfolios. We have regular update meetings where we discuss new investment opportunities if we feel the fund(s) would benefit. I would have recommended Matt on many occasions.”

G. Woodward

“Forbes Financial have been managing my financial affairs for several years. Their advice has always been specifically tailored to meet my specific and changing needs across a range of financial planning. They are always readily available to meet or discuss specific requests and conduct useful review meetings presenting all facts and options in a clear and concise way. I can highly recommend their services.”

J Drake-Brockman

“Over many years of Matt’s guidance, I have always been impressed by his desire to be at the cutting edge of financial innovation and yet fully cognisant of the benefits of building for the long-term, taking account of and understanding all means of investment and insurance. That said, above all, it is his reliability and dedication that shines through and sets him apart from others.”

M. Kettle

“My wife and I have been clients of Forbes Financial for nearly eight years, having met Matthew Forbes soon after the financial crash of 2008. The advice given then was very reassuring during a period of great uncertainty and since then we have benefited from the practice’s ongoing advice and investment recommendations.”
