Ayres Punchard client testimonials


These are just a few of the many compliments our clients and introducers pay us:

Mr H, Totland, Isle of Wight:

“I have known and used Chris Welsford as my IFA for more years than I care to remember, to the extent that I now regard him as a valued friend. Without exception I have found Chris to be honest, reliable and always well ahead of financial services regulation in both charging and business ethics. Over the years his excellent and very well researched advice have both made me and, more importantly, saved me many thousands of pounds through succeeding financial crises. I have never had cause to even consider taking my business elsewhere and recommend his services without reservation.”

A long standing client for whom we manage approximately £1m of cash accounts:

Thank you so much for organising the new accounts. It has ensured that the job has been done efficiently.”

Venetia Coombs – Partner, Mackenzies Chartered Accountants, Shanklin, Freshwater and Maidstone:

“Having worked with Chris for two years now, I have found the service he gives to my clients is extremely thorough, professional and delivered in a timely and friendly manner. Chris is so enthusiastic about what he does and always seems to go the extra mile. My clients tell me that they enjoy dealing with him and find his advice very clear and structured. I also enjoy working with Chris – it has taken us a long time to find someone of Chris’ calibre and enthusiasm and I refer clients to him with absolute confidence that they will be well looked after.”

Mrs W, West Sussex:

“Ayres Punchard have been looking after our investments for the last 10 years. We have been very satisfied with their service, which is both professional and tailor-made to suit our personal requirements.”

A retired client for whom we provide comprehensive investment and financial planning services:

“Thank you for the Key Service Level Agreement, I have signed both copies and put them in the post to you. I think it is very well laid out and explains the precise break down of the fees that we pay which I appreciate your having sent.”

A large private client with a large income portfolio including ISA, VCT and SEIS portfolios and various offshore portfolios and trusts:

“Thank you very much for doing the spreadsheet, we are very pleased with it and I am sure that it will work fine. Thanks for all your efforts as I am sure that it must have been time consuming but hopefully it is now done and will be easy to administer. Looking at the figures over the years you have done exceedingly well to sustain the balances in the investment accounts, which I very much appreciate.”

Mr & Mrs R, Sandown, Isle of Wight:

“Chris Welsford has been our family adviser for the last 18 years, having been introduced to us by our accountant. We have found him to be friendly  and competent and has a good understanding of our situation. We have been satisfied with everything he has undertaken on our behalf.”

Mike, New Milton, Hants:

“Trust and confidence in your IFA is paramount. I have been with Chris for 15 years plus and transferred my financial affairs to him based on a friends recommendation. I am pleased to be able to say, based on this 15 years experience, that he has earned my trust and confidence in him, and he consistently delivers my financial needs”
