Rhona and I have known Elmfield Financial Planning or Craig for over 10 years, we met as a result of high recommendation from a friend, when we needed help in choosing where and in what we were going to invest our hard earned funds. Craig’s personal touch gave value to his advice and the key fact in our relationship ‘mutual trust’. Craig from our very first meeting had a complete understanding of Rhona and my requirements, every detail matters, which has led to consistent, good results year after year.
