  • We have bought two properties using Donovan from Parklands now. Both processes were made easier by having him to help, as well as him going to many lengths to get the best deal for us.
    We have recently moved into our new home and cannot thank Donovan enough for all of his help with getting us in. A great person who went above and beyond to help us with our every need. We would 100% recommend him to anyone. Laura M.

  • I recently sought advise from Parklands Financial Advisers regarding various matters and I can highly recommend them.  I dealt with Tom Yallop and he was extremely efficient and courteous, explaining how the on-line process worked as it was not possible to meet personally due to the current situation we are all in. Tom was patient and took his time to explain what I needed to do in easy to understand terms and everything was processed very quickly. Elain

  • I recently sought some advice of Parklands Financial Advisors regarding my current pension arrangements.
    I was offered sound and sensible advice with regards to what to do with my private and company pensions
    I was provided with a thorough financial report regarding my personal circumstances which helped me make my decision, this also provided me with a forecast retirement date, to allow me to plan for the future.
    I have also used Parklands to remortgage which again was smooth and effortlessly  simple.

  • I found the online risk assessment very easy to use. I am more than pleased with the way Parklands has managed my pension, and to have doubled its value (when I have made no contributions), I find remarkable!
