James Hogg is a credit to Pareto. Always professional, well presented, organised and knowledgeable. He is a great listener, explains your options very carefully, checks your understanding and puts you at ease with decisions you then go on to make. He responds to requests speedily and makes himself available at short notice. I highly recommend James, particularly for clients who find the world of pensions and investment a mine field!

Astute sound advice, explanation when the language is confusing and excellent customer care. All comes at a price at Pareto but is so worth it. Thank you Alex you are the top.

Caroline Ryder

The best compliment I can give to Stuart is that I trust him implicitly to advise me on how best to manage my finances to secure the best possible future for me and my family. I love my family more than words can describe and the trust I place in Stuart is thus no small thing. Great guy.
