Paul Stanfield looked after my mother’s financial affairs for many years very successfully; she had confidence in him and liked him very much. He will now be looking after my own finances. He is very personable, friendly and helpful and his professional knowledge and judgement are excellent. His office systems are reliable and very well organised. I feel very confident with him looking after my financial affairs.

I was impressed from the start with how quickly Paul Stanfield of Stanfield Financial Planning understood my individual needs and concerns relating to incomes, savings and inheritance tax. He has built, and maintains my portfolio reflecting my attitude to risk and the necessity of having a carefully balanced spread of investments. The results have been very satisfying, particularly during times of economic difficulty. I am confident that he keeps a constant watch on our interests and that he will contact me as soon as the perceives opportunities or difficulties ahead, with sound advice as to how we should act. I recommended Paul’s services to friends several years ago and they have been similarly impressed by his ability and integrity and pleased with his successes on their behalf.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Fund values fluctuate and can fall as well as rise.
An open and trusting relationship expressed with courtesy, kindness and consideration is a top priority and the groundwork for investing my finances. All these aspects were certainly Paul’s approach when we met some years ago. The designation of my funds, taking into account my need for income and growth was explained graphically for my consideration. I have never felt rushed into any decisions and everything is always explained fully in a simple yet professional manner. I am given advice and information as often as I need and Paul likes to keep in regular contact.

Ken and Angie Parke
After years of financial mismanagement with various advisers, Paul was recommended to us. What a revelation he has been; he has always made sure that we have understood what our choices are and helped us invest wisely. Thank you for your patience and for making our investments change for the better. You have given us security for the future and trust in adviser, something we didn’t think we would have.

I can vouch for the excellent advice given over the past 15 years and I have total trust in placing the development of my portfolio in Paul’s hands. Paul is very approachable, always willing to listen to my problems & proposals and advise ways forward – indeed he has become a good friend. This encourages easy discussion and creates an excellent working environment. The steadily increasing value of chosen investments, even in austere times, speaks for itself and is very satisfactory. I would recommend Paul, without reservation, to anyone requiring financial planning advice.
