What our clients say

Back to: About us

Having retired early, and highly wary of financial advisers, we wanted to maximise growth whilst protecting our retirement fund, two things we thought were incompatible. However Sean and Fairstone NI showed us otherwise and it was all the more remarkable because he achieved this during the recession and tough economic times! Sean was very professional, honest, open and knowledgeable, he delivered regular portfolio reviews with on-going support and advice in plain English, we are now content that our family’s future is financially secure and trust Sean to help keep us secure.

Gavin & Lesley Body

Sean has been our financial adviser for the past 5 years. We have just finished reviewing our Estate Planning situation. We have found that Sean always explains matters in a clear and straightforward way, enabling us to understand and make the right choices for our situation. We would not hesitate in recommending Sean and Fairstone NI.

Ashley & Wendy McCulla

Sean’s advice is always clear, and to the point. It is always backed up with in-depth research and detailed reports. You feel you are in the hands of an expert, one who cares about my financial situation.

Dennis & Maureen Savoury

Sean has been looking after our financial affairs for the last four years. We are a busy family and he always makes time to see us when it’s convenient for us.
Sean’s hard work and efficiency has helped us to have a portfolio of investments and plans that are now organised and our money is working for us. We can look at our portfolio at a touch of a button using their technology.
Overall we are very impressed with the service we are receiving. We appreciate the advantage of being offered professional advice in a sensitive manner which at the same time challenges us to make our financial affairs our priority.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sean to any of my friends or family.

When my husband died 5 years ago I don’t think I could have got through the baffling and overwhelming business of my finances without Michael’s patience and understanding. He explained everything in a way that I could understand and more importantly his guidance and advice have been sound. Working with him has provided me with peace of mind and his listening skills as well as his understanding have been invaluable.
