We have always saved money and tried to contribute as much as possible into our pensions however with hindsight I realise that my approach to maximizing the return on our investments was very amateurish, it was only after we started to work with Lee as our advisor in April 2016 that I feel for the first time in my career our pensions and savings are working as hard for us as we are working to pay into them. I love the regular reviews we conduct, each time learning more about the investments themselves and feeling able to contribute to the investment decisions we make. It feels like a partnership, I trust Lee’s judgments and believe in his integrity both these qualities are vital when all of our future life savings are in his hands. It therefore no surprise when I say I often recommend Lee to friends and family.

We first made contact with Lee Eldridge and his team 4 years ago with a view to setting up a low risk investment portfolio to provide us with a sound financial basis for the future.
Since that time, Lee has provided excellent financial advise and has been enormously helpful in setting us up with a successful portfolio which completely meets our requirements. He and his team are completely professional, offering regular consultations and guiding us through the complex world of finance in a clear, consistent and straightforward manner. We are delighted with his services, which have set us on the path to a sound financial future. I would not hesitate to recommend Lee and Chase Buchanan to anybody seeking clear, easy to understand financial advice and support.

During my recent evaluation of overseas pension and saving options for my retirement, I came across Mr. Andrew Lumley-Holmes details and contacted him with respect to my future financial requirements and an issue I had with an existing firm in Moscow.
Once we agreed to work together Andrew Lumley-Holmes has provided professional and accurate information pertaining to overseas pensions and saving plans while also assisting me in resolving my complaint against a previous firm who had provided unsuitable options and products based on my personal circumstances.
From first hand experience I found Andrew to be very knowledgable in the area of financial markets and fully understands the requirements of expatriates seeking international, cross border pensions, savings, and investments coupled with legally sound tax advice.
I am very happy to recommend his services.

We have been using Chase Buchanan for around two years now and have found their services to be excellent especially Lee Eldridge who has kept in contact on a regular basis. His knowledge and advice has been outstanding in managing our funds. We have recommended Chase Buchanan to many of our friends and will continue to do so. We have also just taken on a SIPP for my wife as we have been so pleased with the service and performance so far.

Looking after my future is important and by investing through Chase Buchanan I know my future is in safe hands!

I understand why you are seeking first hand experience of Chase Buchanan, it is a huge decision when choosing someone to trust with your financial future.
Lee Eldridge was unknown to me at first and I was very cautious , asking many questions about his background, experience, career success , track record and overall integrity . I wanted proof!
Every query was dealt with in a transparent and direct way and I was very satisfied from day one that I was dealing with an open, honest and genuine individual who was supported by a competent and efficient team. Shortly after engaging with CB, Lee actually visited us at our French home and explained how CB is structured and how it works. This was useful because it enabled me to build trust, which I do not do readily.
Lee was able to procure funds from two employment pension schemes on my behalf and securely set up a personal portfolio managed by CB. I understood at the time that this was a difficult and complicated transaction and was kept up to date and well informed during the entire process. This level of communication is something I really like and I am pleased to say that it has continued.
I appreciate the level of detail in all discussions about each aspect of my portfolio and feel comfortable asking questions about performance and why any changes are being made. I also like the fact that i can go online and look at a realtime snapshot of how my portfolio is performing, if I have any concerns or suggestions, I can contact CB at any time.
Much of these conversations are pro-active and Lee manages the portfolio so that it is “poised for growth”(I am 48 years old and therefore have plenty of time before I will draw from the fund) So “yes” I do feel that they are on top of things, of course certain world events can never be foreseen, but if action is required , I have found it to be swift.
I trust the competence of CB because the performance of my portfolio is in line with the estimated growth i.e. Lee has delivered what he said he would deliver.
Everybody that I have spoken to at CB have always been friendly and really professional .

I had been considering my pension options which I did not fully understand. After meeting and chatting with Lee Eldridge I now have my financial plans in place. I am very happy with the service provided by Chase Buchanan. They keep me regularly informed and would recommend them to others.

Have you ever tried to put together a 1000 piece puzzle without a picture?!
6 months ago an investment advisor suggested that as we were living in the Netherlands, we should look at transferring our UK pensions to a Qrops. Since then we’ve been trying to get our heads around company pensions plans, QROPS, SIpps, double taxation, last salary pension scheme, death benefits, tax free portion, annuity, drawdown, investment platforms, different financial advisors’ recommended solutions, qualifications, gross / net / inflation-adjusted returns, stated charges, hidden charges, Dutch tax laws, English tax laws …… and then how Brexit might change all of that to boot! Most of the advisors we spoke to didn’t have the full picture or only shared that bit with us which would sway us to their solution – until we would come across a piece of information which would make us think again.
It’s been an education and not one we would wish on any novice.
If you find yourself in our position I heartily recommend you speak to Lee Eldridge of Chase Buchanan. His knowledge, his patient, structured, user-friendly, comprehensive explanation of the whole territory in question finally helped put it all into perspective for us. After 2 phone calls we finally felt the load come off our shoulders. We had found someone we could trust our pensions and investments to. Wish we had spoken to him 6 months ago!

I wish to formally record my sincere thanks to you and your colleagues at Chase Buchanan for your assistance over the past 12 months. The professional way in which you have dealt with the issues that were troubling me has been much appreciated. The level of comfort you have engendered has far exceeded my expectations to the extent that I am once again able to relax and enjoy life! I only wish I had found you earlier- thanks once again.

Chase Buchanan, and in particular its principal, Lee Eldridge, has managed our personal investment portfolio for several years now. We are very satisfied with the results and the service. Lee maintains regular contact with us, updating us on the investment environment and the performance of our portfolio, and involving us in strategy setting. The outcome has been growth in the upswings and protection in the downturns due to careful selection of investments and willingness to adjust strategy when conditions change. I strongly recommend Chase Buchanan.

The experience with Chase Buchanan has helped me realise a footballers’ career is a short one and getting my finances in shape as quickly as possible is essential.

I just wanted to write a brief note to say thank you to Chase Buchanan and compliment your efforts.
Chase Buchanan’s clear and very intelligent advice regarding my recently established QROPS arrangements, particularly with regards to the added investment (or “QROPS+”) approach tailored to address my circumstance, is very much appreciated. It demonstrates that the Chase Buchanan ethos is oriented around putting the client’s interests first. Obviously, as with everything in life, there are “pros” and “cons” when making big financial decisions and sometimes there is no right answer – but in this case I think Chase Buchanan has come up with the best possible solution for me at this point in my working life and this reflects positively on Chase Buchanan. Thank you.
