At Flying Colours we select the advisers to join us and work under the Flying Colours name. They have to go through several levels of assessment, due diligence, client servicing history and financial background checking as part of our stringent approval process. This ensures that you always get the highest standard of service from our advisers.
Les has been advising us for nearly 30 years. We first consulted Les before we had children regarding longer term savings, then life insurance, equity release for a parent, inheritance planning and now our retirement income and mortgages for our children. Sound and thoughtful advice, we have achieved the retirement position we hoped for.

I needed to take stock of my life, investments and pensions and knew it was important to find the right advice. Straight away I knew Les was the right adviser , open, honest and has the ability to explain things in a way I would understand, bearing in mind the complexity of the financial markets and the regulations involved. I have been with Les for a very long time, which is a testament to our relationship as an adviser. He is easy to talk to and will always respond no matter the subject. I Would highly recommend Les as a top adviser.
I was progressing well in my occupation in the City and needed some advice re my savings and pension for my long term future. Les's help and advice re my finances was invaluable to help me secure a nest egg for my future retirement. I have been a client of his for over 30 years. I have now retired and through his advice have a comfortable pension and peace of mind. From my own personal experience he has always been available to help me when needed and basically could not have been more helpful.
