Financial Advisors Taunton

The Financial Detectives is a family Financial Advisors firm based in Taunton, Somerset. We pride ourselves on our professional and friendly service.  We give you the advantage of dealing with an approachable, local firm.

We are advisers and not salespeople.  If the best thing for you is to change nothing, staying with your existing arrangement, then that is what we’ll advise.  We are not tied to a particular bank, lender or insurer.  This gives us the freedom to find what’s best for you from every product available.  Doing the research for a decision as important as a mortgage, life insurance or a will can be daunting and time consuming.  Our experience in the industry allows us to do most of the ground work for you.  We are always up to date with product developments and the nuances of each provider’s processes.  This knowledge helps you get what you need, whilst saving you time and frustration.  The team keep you updated throughout the process, ensuring your needs are met and concerns addressed.

Being a family run business, The Financial Detectives work to build lasting relationships.  We take the time to find out about our client’s needs and circumstances, rather than just offering generic, financial advice.

Yet again the Financial Detectives have delivered excellent service to us by finding the best mortgages and conditions whilst at the same time, guiding us through the mine field that can so often trip up the unwary house buyer. To most people the process of mortgaging and re-mortgaging can be time consuming and bewildering. Dealing with the FD team takes all that way from you. The team listened to what we wanted and then took it from there searching the market for the deals that best suited our special circumstances. They delivered friendly, professional, timely, responses to all our questions and concerns offering excellent value for money. We have used the team in the past and will do again should the need arise. I have recommended them in the past and will do again in the future. Well done and thanks once again. S Haskins,

"The Financial Detectives were able to help me achieve my dream of owning my own home when no one else could . In today's tough mortgage climate I was not an easy case, middle aged, self employed divorcee! But they did it!! Their approach is honest and personal and I highly recommend them as a family firm " Kaye Reeves K Reeves, 2017
