Our Clients

Attentive service and great advice. No sugar coating just honesty, information and support. Highly recommended!

Neil Holden Toby Band

I am very fortunate to have been given some extremely good financial advice from Toby Band which has transformed my financial portfolio. Toby offers an extremely professional service , giving very ethical and tailored advice which he explains in an easy to understand way. I would definitely recommend Toby to anyone.

Peter Jarvis Toby Band

We have been extremely fortunate to use First Sentinel, with the brilliant Toby Band, to manage our pensions and investments. They have provided excellent, independent and risk appropriate advice to consolidate and strengthen our pensions and investment strategy. We are in a solid position now with a coherent strategy defined for retirement and are already seeing impressive growth. This significant improvement, coupled with the very regular phone calls and documented reviews has given us great confidence on the path to a very comfortable retirement.

Angela & Noel Toby Band

I’ve used the First Sentinel for my pension, they have been nothing but exemplary, communications have been excellent and Ben my financial adviser has been extremely professional giving me sound advice, I would definitely recommend them.

Andrew Camp Ben Barratt

I have nothing but great things to say about Ben Barratt and First Sentinel, Ben has been very informative and he has gone over and above his job description helping us understand our finances. I would recomend the Arlo Group to anyone looking for a safe investment strategy and long term financial freedom.

Giles Smith Ben Barratt

I've been working with Ben B at First Sentinel for the past few years now, and have been so impressed with his level of support and eye for detail with the consolidation of my large number of private pensions (which were quite frankly a total mess). Ben helped me with the very complex process of wrapping my pension values into a personal risk-profiled SIPP, and I now have visibility and control over my single but well diversified investment. I also have regular market updates from Arlo, which are pitched at a level which I can understand, and Ben is always on hand to discuss any issues, ideas, or concerns I may have. Great service.

Michael Watts Ben Barratt

Ben has impressed with his analysis, advices and follow-up. It just makes such a difference to fully trust the person and company, and capabilities, to follow up this part of financials. I can clearly recommend Ben as a provider of wealth management services!

Torbjorn Hegdal Ben Barratt

Ben Barratt has been managing my pension portfolio for the last 5 years, and has been a pleasure to work with. I have every confidence in him, his colleagues, and their investment decisions. We have regular contact about my portfolio, which always is in context of where the markets are and how Brexit, Covid, US elections, etc all impact them. This is the early years of a 20-year relationship before I retire, and I'm pleased to have chosen First Sentinel to manage my pension.

Richard McNeill Ben Barratt

I’d like to thank Ben and the excellent team at First Sentinel. They have guided me through the very complex process of releasing my previous final salary pensions and investing into a SIPP. They have provided first class service coupled with amazing patience and sound financial advice. Complete professionalism. I am in the process of recommending First Sentinel, and Ben in particular, to colleagues who want to follow the same path.
