Having used bdhSterling for a number of years now with Simon Harvey as my IFA, I can safely say the business is professional, diligent and has always acted in the best interest of myself and my funds. What stands out the most is not only the results, but the overall customer care which really keeps them head and shoulders above some of their lesser competitors that I have also utilised the services of in the past.
