"I have known David Henderson for seven years and during that time, he has had full control of my financial investment portfolio through retirement and the consequences of adjustment to widowhood. I have never had any cause to doubt his skilled advice and commitment. This has been delivered through a friendly and totally reliable relationship. I have regarded him as a trustworthy friend and in terms of the financial manoeuvres, his practical adjustments have (thus far in a volatile world!) all been safe and successful. He has been helpfully reassuring at times based on an extensive knowledge of theway the markets and global economy works I find this very educational. I have recommended his services to several friends all of whom have commented most favourably after his input totheir finances."

Our Financial Services Experience
From time to time, global markets go through periods of uncertainty. This can be down to some poor economic news, a political crisis, or a multitude of other factors. If the market then falls sharply it can unsettle many investors. It may even tempt some to sell their investment at a loss.
But stock market volatility tends to be short lived, and when you try to time the stock market, it is too easy to miss the best gains. Most experts agree that, in such unnerving periods, investors are probably better off sitting tight and, if they are still focused on a long-term goal, not changing their plans.
Time, not timing, is the key to investing.
Recent research by the International Longevity Centre and Royal London has produced some interesting findings that highlight the benefit of independent advice when taking major financial decisions. The report demonstrated that those who receive financial advice are on average £40,000 better off than those who don’t.
Entitled The Value of Financial Advice, the report looked at the finances of various groups of people, and makes a clear case for taking financial advice.
