Frances fully reviewed my existing drawdown pension and made recommendations on how to proceed with the pension as it was no longer suitable for me. She offered clear advice that was easy for me to understand and made me aware of all of my options, including the advantages and disadvantages of each option.

Frances had fully researched my situation and made it her priority to find me a pension that was suitable for me. She took note of the current poor annuity rates and found me a specialist product that potentially increase my income in the future. I was very happy with the service that I received.

Frances Giliker – VouchedFor Testimonials

Below is a selection of reviews for Giliker Flynn’s Director and Final Salary Pension Specialist, Frances Giliker from VoucherFor –

“After analysing my portfolio of pensions and determining my current lifestyle, appetite to risk and what I wanted to achieve, Fran advised me accordingly.
“Taking into account that this was a minefield for me and that not everything has come together yet, i.e. still awaiting my government pension, I’m pleased with the way things have turned out.”


“Frances provided clear financial advice, followed by a comprehensive report of her recommendations. She was pleasant, approachable and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”


“Having been made redundant at 63, I decided to take early retirement and needed advice on my income from my pensions. She gave me advice in a way that was professional and easy to understand.”


“I was looking at moving some pension money and wanted to know if I should invest in a property I owned.
“Her advice was some of the best I’ve ever had, she was honest and to the point explained why I should proceed in the direction she advised and the long-term benefits of my plan. I can’t think of how Frances could have advised me any better.”

“My pension scheme was closing down, and I was given the option to transfer into another scheme, or to opt into transferring myself into a private pension scheme and running it myself through a Financial Advisor.
“Frances was my last Financial advisor I had arranged to meet and to sit down with and discuss my options. Straight away I found the information given to me and pointed out was second to none. While ongoing with the transfer I always found Frances very informative and always quick to respond to any questions I asked her along the way.”


“We are looking to retire early and move to Spain, so we needed to maximise out tax free lump sum and still be able to have the required income at retirement.
“The advice Frances gave us has been excellent. We are very cautious investors, so she was able to show us products that gave us a good income without too high a risk to our capitol.
“Frances has been great very flexible in seeing us at our home out of office hours.”
