Average NorthStar Rating
"Friendly, efficient, professional service."
"I was drawn to NorthStar by your professional website having not previously encountered the name. James was friendly & professional which was the reason for selecting your service over a competing advisor. I now look forward to achieving a mutually profitable relationship."
"The gentleman called me at exactly the time agreed - very good. The gentleman immediately established that I am a Brit living in Bahrain. He therefore advised me that as I was outside the UK he was unable to help me due to FCA rules - very good. He did not waste my time."
"First class service. Being updated weekly via email was very useful, it saved on phone calls to find out information, I knew exactly what stage the project was at. I never had to chase up James, he always responded very quickly to any queries I had. James provided an excellent service and I was very impressed."
"Bit difficult to assess value for money at this stage; similarly with objectives. In terms of customer service I would only give top marks. The advisor was friendly, professional and most important of all, not for one minute condescending. Having seen another advisor once before and not taken it further I can make some comparison."
"Very impressed with the service and documentation presented by James. Also, the recommendations seem to be in line with our requirements."

"I had a good meeting today with James. He made the meeting very easy. He explained everything to me in plain English and in a way I could understand. I have every faith he will point me in the right direction with my pension."
"The meeting was excellent and everything was clearly explained. James understood my goals and concerns and I was confident that these will be well considered in any recommendations he makes."

"Very pleased with the service I have had."
"I knew what I wanted to achieve but had no idea how to go about it! James came and sat down with me, assessed my needs and my current situation and then explained all of my options to achieve what I set out to do. It is now all done and it was painless! I would recommend to anyone."
"NorthStar has been wonderful. Our financial advisor has very good communication skills and seems extremely knowledgeable."

"The service provided by NorthStar's adviser was done in a very professional and friendly way."
"The service provided by NorthStar was excellent. I wanted to review the performance of an old pension fund. James was very approachable, explained all my options very clearly and I felt confident that he fully understood my objectives. I received regular progress updates and was pleased with the outcome, which has seen my pension moved online with lower annual fees and a projected higher return. I would definitely recommend NorthStar and James Thompson for any financial advice you might need."
"I would like to say that after two meetings I have been impressed with the service. James Thompson explained our financial strategy in easy to understand terminology and we now look forward to further discussions to achieve our objectives in the future."
"Excellent service with some very good ideas and well put over."
"I found the advice that NorthStar gave to be very helpful. It covered all the necessary points and demonstrated a good working knowledge. Following the work carried out by NorthStar, I now have the confidence to retire, knowing that my pensions and investments are being proactively managed. I have a real understanding of my financial position and a strategy for my retirement. I would recommend NorthStar to others without hesitation."
"NorthStar have been extremely informative throughout the whole process looking in detail at my finances, looking at ways to save and I have happily invested money on their wise advice. I feel confident in their abilities and look forward to seeing the progress moving forward."
"NorthStar were very helpful in guiding us through the auto enrolment process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."
