Testimonials

"In my professional capacity managing  the financial affairs of a company with over a hundred employees and 8 different cost centres I have reasonably frequently been asked to write a testimonial for someone who provides a service to either me personally or my company, a request I generally decline. When Donie asked me to do the same I decided to make an exception because of the exceptional service Donie has given both me, my business partner and my staff over the years. Because of the large sums of money we spend on an annual basis on life insurance and pension products, I have had occasion over the years to review the work Gavin Financial has done for me with other brokers who have invariably said that they would be able to save me money. On each occasion this has happened it has turned out that the advice Donie gave me was well informed and the other providers were in fact unable to improve upon the decision I had taken with Donie’s help. It is for these reasons I have not changed provider, and for that reason I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Gavin Financial, as I have already done on many occasions to both friends, staff and business associates, for anyone seeking the services Donie provides."
James Hargrave, Financial Director, Little Harvard Limited


"In 2012 I must have been one of the only people whose investment doubled in value, and that is because I was lucky enough to have Donie Gavin as my financial advisor.
I am a very busy person running 3 businesses, so for the last 26 years I have relied and trusted Donie to look after all my financial affairs, and with the excellent advice he has consistently provided me I will continue to.
Donie has also successfully advised many of my own friends and colleagues.
I can highly recommend Donie to everyone, we all need good independent financial advice!"
