    ‘Connor Broadley take unusual care to get to know their clients as individuals and as families, to a degree I

    haven’t found anywhere else in the financial community. The advice they give is always professional and reliable, but also finely tuned to the interests and wellbeing of me and my family.

    Over the years, I have come to view the team at Connor Broadley as not only trusted advisers, but family friends. I draw real confidence and comfort from the thought they will become the same trusted friends to my children and grandchildren. It’s a very good feeling to have.’
