Lindsay Pattison


‘When I think of Connor Broadley, I think of safety, security, and professionalism, which gives me a sense of calm. I know my investments are in safe hands. That may sound boring but safety and security can be incredibly important when it comes to your own money. I feel my investments will do better with Connor Broadley than they would with anyone else or with me trying to do it myself. I have utter confidence and trust in them and I know they have my best interests at heart.’
