Adrian Seager, Ward Goodman’s IFA, Receives VouchedFor ‘Top Rated’ Award

Posted on: 04/12/2017

Adrian Seager, Independent Financial Adviser with Ward Goodman, the Dorset based firm of Chartered Accountants and Independent Financial Advisers, has been awarded the esteemed ‘Top Rated’ award from VouchedFor.com for receiving the highest volume of positive client reviews in the last 18 months, averaging a score of 4.9/5.

Priding himself on giving good, sound, financial advice in clear and simple terms, Adrian promises to answer all his clients’ financial concerns in an understandable manner, giving them the knowledge and confidence required to make the best financial decisions for them and their future.

After a long and successful naval career which included service on Her Majesty’s Royal Yacht Britannia in the role of marine engineer, he returned to Dorset in 1990 and became an Independent Financial Adviser, joining Ward Goodman in 2012.  Married, with now two grown-up daughters, Poole born Adrian is well known and highly regarded amongst the local community.  He is an avid ‘armchair’ F1 fan, and enjoys playing county level indoor bowls at the Dolphin Bowls Club in Poole.

Adrian commented: “I get great satisfaction from knowing my advice can ease worries many people feel when it comes to their issues surrounding financial planning. It’s often a surprise for people to learn how we, as advisers, can often help.  For example we are often approached for advice on the right equity release product, or it may be to explain the benefits to a client if they top up their pension.  But for me, the most rewarding cases I find are ones where we are able to help people find ways to pay for their loved ones care costs.  At the younger end of the market, I am often asked to help people find a mortgage, as often circumstances do not fit into standardised boxes that most lenders insist on being ticked.  I am often asked to simplify financial jargon for a client, resulting in them being able to make informed decisions.  It’s about giving someone more financial control, freedom and peace of mind.  Being part of the Ward Goodman team allows me full access to technical expertise required for more complicated situations some clients face.  Our firm covers all aspects of accountancy, tax planning and trust planning.”
