Robert Bligh at Lifetime has recently been both my mother’s and my financial adviser. When my mother died last year after the COVID-19 epidemic began, Robert was very helpful not only with advice, re: sorting my mother’s financial affairs, but also advising with probate and other legal matters. Move to January 2021 and very unexpectedly, I have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. I was in a situation where I had to sort out my will and financial affairs on my own and also quite quickly to ensure that family was provided for appropriately. I phoned Robert whilst I was still in hospital and not only did he step up to the plate, he went above and beyond anything I could have expected from a financial adviser. Robert subsequently advised me about various specifics I needed to include in the will and we discussed best options. He then moved on things very rapidly to ensure I was put in touch with a solicitor and because of the circumstances, the will was fast tracked and all completed in a short space of time. Throughout this process, Robert kept in touch with me to ensure all was going smoothly. But not only that, he has called to enquire about my well being and has shown a genuine care and concern. For me, going well beyond the extra mile has made an enormous difference in how I have been able to deal with complex financial and legal issues in this difficult situation and I would recommend Robert Bligh’s knowledge, professionalism and care without hesitation.
Working with Lifetime is like having a breath of fresh air compared to other financial advisers I have worked with. Their approach is very different, focused highly on my current situation and very responsive to rapidly changing situations (such as the current pandemic). My adviser has listened carefully to what matters to me and my family, and then responded with a full cash flow model to the end of my life (when I’m aged 99!). They speak clearly and don’t leave a subject until full understanding is achieved, which, in my case, can take several attempts! Right now, I trust my adviser implicitly with my whole financial picture. I can’t recommend them enough.

I have had a lot of advice from many people and advisers over the last eight months because I am taking early retirement at the end of the year (2020). Lifetime financial planner Robert Bligh is such a reassuring and professional guy. All this with no pressure or big sell on what to do with our finances .After my second zoom meeting, advice and forecast with Robert I feel confident and sure of our future and retirement. Many thanks for your professional advice.
