The problem we solve

It’s hard to know who to trust with big decisions like buying a house, planning for the future, or looking at retirement options. Our client brings together verified client reviews, industry leading checks and qualifications to give people that peace of mind when they need to find an adviser to help them. 93% of consumers read reviews – when was the last time you bought anything without checking reviews? This trend is increasingly important for areas like financial advice too – and we’ve seen that grow since the switch to remote working. With more consumers doing their research online, we have more demand for this type of products. It’s also more important than ever that reviews and the professionals to be genuinely verified – the client goes to great lengths to do this (more than any other review platform) and they find innovative ways to do this using technology.
They grew the membership 30% in 2020 and have ambitious plans to grow further and faster.
