UnaVida are trustworthy, honest, and reliable.

My name is Jim Hancock. I’ve been a client of UnaVida for 30 to 40 years and my adviser is Ray Best.

My wife and I got in touch with UnaVida because we were starting up a business and we really needed some financial advice to help with that.

We had to ensure that hopefully the profit we were making could be soundly invested with professional advice, so we sought UnaVida.

The reason we chose UnaVida is because meeting with Ray Best, he convinced us that it was good sound advice he was giving us at the time, and we did need somebody who could give us confidence to go ahead with our business.

With the challenging times in the country at that moment, we had to make sure that our investments were standing up to the difficult situation and we were constantly given good advice from Ray. We’ve been happy all this time that we’ve dealt with UnaVida over these years.

One of the reasons why we have stayed with UnaVida over the years is because of the close contact and regular meetings that we have with Ray to ensure that we’re on the right path for our investments.

The three words that I would say with regards to UnaVida are that they’re trustworthy, honest, and reliable.

You have a special contact with your adviser, Ray Best, who understands you as a family and as a client.

One of the best pieces of advice that Ray gave us was that we were tempted to invest in a company with a high return in shares that turned out to be a boiler room scam, and Ray cleverly advised us on that. So, we were nearly going to lose about £30,000; in the end we lost about £60.

One of the most important things when you’re dealing with a company, is that you’re speaking to the one person that is there to help you and you’re not passed on to anybody else. I think Ray has given us that personal contact over the years that we’ve known him.

We would recommend other people to UnaVida as we have done in the past, and the main reason is that we’ve had good contact and we’ve had results over the years with UnaVida.

What clients say

Ray's philosophy to finance was aligned with ours.

I look at Ray as a friend, rather than just an adviser.

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

The opinions expressed by Ray Best are meant to inform and educate. Before making any investment decisions always take advice that is pertinent to your investment personality and financial situation.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
