I'm 75 years old and have lived in North London for most of my life. I used to work as a medical rep, I was a business owner and I've done lots of jobs in between so I've built up a decent share portfolio over many years. I came across London Stone Securities about a year ago after searching online for a London based stockbroker firm. I quickly found and read the DIP book and it was incredible - it just taught me so much even though I've been investing since the early 1990s.
Earlier this year I went to the London IX Trade Show and met Chris and some of the team, and they were all amazing. Friendly, funny, really switched on, they knew their stuff but they talk to you like a real person - not like a sales target. There's no false smiles or dishonesty with them.
To be fair, I wasn't really looking to use their services. I just wanted to see what was out there and get some free expert tips to help me with my trading strategy.
I already have a pretty decent portfolio and I've always managed my own investments with my brother and we're both quite experienced. We've made quite good money over the years. We use Hargreaves Lansdowne as a platform, and we're members of Motley Fool so we get lots of good information. But after seeing what London Stone was doing, it really made me wake up to the possibility that there was so much I was still missing.
I've been using some of their basic, entry-level strategies and have seen great results over a short period of time. That's why I know that they're the real deal. Because I'm an experienced investor myself, I know when somebody is trying to bluff it and the investment managers who actually know their stuff.
If you're thinking about learning or investing and want an honest firm, then you can stop looking. London Stone is your answer. They don't deal with certain products that I like to trade in which is a bit of a downer, but the stuff that they do, I think they do better than anybody else.
Today, I can pick up the phone and speak to any of their team as if I'm an old friend. I'm going on the 30-day DIP course soon with my brother and I'm excited about what the future holds.
That's all I have to say - they're all just brilliant. Thank you to everybody.
If anybody wants to reach out to me to make sure that I'm a real person and a genuine fan of London Stone, not some AI robot!, I've told the team to feel free to pass on my details!
That's how confident I am that this wealth management team is the best one you're going to come across. Trust me, I've spoken to pretty much all of them!
