Reviews what our clients say

"Donna Smyth of O’Toole & Associates LLP has been providing pension advice to the Cancer Fund for Children and its employees for over ten years.  Over that period of time, the level of service and attention she has given to the Charity has been invaluable and her advice has been of the highest standard. Based on her professionalism, expertise and integrity, I would therefore not hesitate in recommending Donna Smyth’s services as a financial advisor."  


 

"I have been dealing with Cormac regarding my pension. He has been so helpful, knowledgeable and helped me understand the pension maze. He continues to be helpful when I need extra help with advice and any requests I have made are dealt with so efficiently. Would recommend the firm to anyone".

Cormac O'Toole FPFS, LLB, Diary of an Adviser

A recent profile in the Financial Times Adviser

Monday 

In the morning, I arrived at our Head office to meet with a solicitor who I have brought in to assist with the completion and sign-off on a late client’s IHT 400 form.

I very pleased with his assistance and technical direction on keeping the process moving forward for our late client’s widow.  The process of administering an estate can so easily become stuck and as multi-million pound clients then the process is more involved. I was reassured to have the process advanced to its final stages so hopefully the issue of the probate is imminent for this lady.

Usually I am in the country office on Monday until 2 pm and then it is off to Belfast again to pick up my daughter and son up from school. Once home I can log on through our secure server back to the office to keep the wheels turning.
