    Administration Team


    Our large Administration Team supports our Advisors and each member has an excellent knowledge of financial products. Our team work closely with the advisors to ensure recommendations are actioned efficiently and accurately.

I have used the services of CMS for many years now and trust them impeccably with decisions they have made with my personal pension plans. They explain everything in layman terms making the pension world easier and more logical to understand. A friendly and highly recommended service that I am happy to refer to my friends.

Andy Crisp

I was first recommended to CMS Financial Management by my longstanding company accountant and it couldn’t have been a better recommendation. Dave Marler and his team have been exceptionally helpful if assisting with my financial planning and that of my wife. They have provided a service above our expectations and have delivered for us what was said on the tin. I continue to have great confidence in the regular advice that we receive.

Bob Langton

CMS Financial Services have always provided a professional service and made sure I was aware of any ‘Hidden Extras’. They consolidated my pensions and managed to wind up a quite complex old pension plan.
I have no problem recommending them highly.
