Matthew Collins Financial Planning Limited

Matthew Collins

DipFA
Having worked in London, Kent and the South East for the last 26 years, I pride myself on being able to effectively help my clients in achieving their financial goals via tailor made solutions. I primarily meet with clients at their homes, at a time convenient for them, or at one of the St. James\'s Place offices across the country.

About

I help my clients to manage their money tax efficiently, while aiming to grow and protect their accumulating wealth.

Where the need is relevant, I also complement my services with intergenerational estate planning, to help my clients pass as much of their wealth to their chosen beneficiaries as tax efficiently as possible.

I achieve this by providing a no jargon, face to face service with regular meetings to keep all plans on track.
Prestigious industry status recognises the value I place on my development and gives clients the confidence that they are supported by one of the UK’s leading wealth professionals.

Matthew Collins has been our financial adviser for a number of years and we were delighted to be able to persuade him to remain as such after he left our bank. Matthew has an extensive financial knowledge and always has the time to listen to ones point of view. He has a friendly manner and is available to answer any queries one could have. We would be very pleased to recommend him to anyone.

I have known Matthew Collins for a few years. He has always agreed to see me at my convenience, most helpful. Explaining ideas, benefits, cost and suggestions. Very helpful when there was a problem with HSBC. Since leaving HSBC, he had again seen me at my convenience with valuable advice to me. I have every confidence in him and would recommend him to others.
J A Law | Dispensary Assistant, Rye
Upon meeting Matthew for the first time, I was most impressed by his calm and reassuring manner. He is a very personable gentleman like a trusting and reliable Bank Manager. His financial knowledge appears to be second to none. He is a family man who cares deeply about his wife and children's future happiness. Perhaps I am a little old fashioned but I like a man who can carry a suit well and who takes care with his appearance which Mathew certainly does.

I was very upset when Matthew left my bank as my financial adviser, but luckily our partnership can continue with St. James's Place. I would sorely miss his kind, helpful, honest advice. Long may it continue.
P Savage | Retired, Hastings
I feel safe and confident Matthew will look after me and my finances. I am always pleased to spend time with him during our meetings and he has also helped one of my daughters with her finances too. I would recommend Matthew to anyone.
Shirley Brayshaw | Retired, Hastings
Anyone looking for sound financial advice should contact Matthew immediately. Matthew will go above and beyond the call of duty to help and will always give you the best advice and find you the best deals to suit your specific needs. I would highly recommend to anyone and will be using Matthew's services for the foreseeable future.
