Well what can we say. We were lucky enough to have Catherine Darlow advising us. Absolutely fantastic job, earlier we had been using another company, Catherine concluded her research and gave us all the advice in a quarter of the time that it took the prior people. She very informative and professional at all times nothing was too much trouble for her. We are so very grateful to her we have already given recommendations, we can’t said good enough. Thankyou so much Catherine.

Very many thanks for your helpful advice over the last couple of days. Thank you for all the work that must be involved to enable you to have all the information at your fingertips. We can’t guess what goes on behind the scenes but we hope that you find it easier than we would imagine.

I can highly recommend Absolute Sense and the services that they provide. I was looking for support and advice on obtaining a mortgage. I did a Google search for a local company and Absolute Sense came up. I emailed them and received a swift reply. From that point onwards on our house buying journey, Cath, at Absolute Sense has been amazing. She has been professional. She has listened and understood our needs and our requirements and found me a mortgage which enabled me to purchase a house. Throughout the process I have been impressed with the knowledge and skills Cath had in dealing with our application. She obtained all the information in a professional and friendly manner as well and provided us with the information required and was completely open and honest with us throughout. I would 100% recommend Absolute Sense to anyone who requires financial support.


As a retired lawyer I felt I understood the issues around equity release but the complexity and need to make the correct decisions are such that professional advice is clearly needed.

Catherine Darlow and the team at Absolute Sense have a firm understanding of what is involved and in a thoroughly professional manner led me through the process…I would happily recommend anyone looking at Equity release to speak to them before making  a decision.

Following some complications with a mortgage application, we contacted Absolute Sense for advice. Catherine was helpful, responsive and dealt with our issues in a timely manner. Catherine was very supportive and friendly. Most importantly, she was able to resolve the issues and secure our mortgage offer. We would recommend Absolute Sense and their team without hesitation.


We both want to thank you very much for all your guidance and assistance throughout – we couldn’t have asked for better.


We first met Peter in 2008 when we transferred our business to Absolute Sense IFA Ltd. He instilled great confidence in us from the outset and we trusted him with our substantial funds to make the best decisions for investments. He always gives a sound and balanced viewpoint on any questions that we raise and has a very good reassuring manner. His great sense of humour is a joy so it is always good to chat with him. He raises our spirits and includes us with his own life stories of family life. It is truly a personal service that he offers. We have watched his Company grow and he has a great team (and family) working for him. The response to any issues raised is dealt with by return which is most unusual from our experience of dealing with other Companies. We appreciate his patience as well as we have requested a meeting with a large Financial Institution before going with a recommendation from him. We feel that is very fair of him and we know that he always has our best interests at heart. I highly recommend Peter to any future clients and believe that they will enjoy a first class service should they decide to use his services. I am more than willing to be contacted personally to substantiate the above.

Mr J

I highly recommend the team at Absolute Sense Independent Financial Advisers. Their expertise in finding the best mortgages available for us was second to none and their proactive, can do attitude  was a real pleasure to experience.

Mr R

I very much appreciate all the work you have done and the help you have given me over the years. I think I would have been in a very sorry state without it, and certainly not where I am now. When I was saying how my money has accumulated because I don’t spend it I didn’t think to say it was also because of your expertise, good advice and patience, which I value highly and was grateful to receive at a time when I need it most.

We were looking for an expert advisor on auto-enrolment. Set our auto-enrolment action plan. Prepared initial workforce budget, undertook market research and advised best options available. Agreed a communication strategy to our workforce including presentations. Set up pension plan including liaising with pension provider and payroll bureau to ensure the smooth running of our staging date, post staging date admin – registered with Pension Regulator, co-ordinated initial payment run etc. Auto-enrolment has been a far easier process than we imagined and 8 months on from our staging date, everything is running smoothly.

Ten years ago sums of money became available for pension investment. Our need was an investment that produced a regular monthly income. Paul carried out a thorough review of our situation and particular future needs. Our needs and levels of risk were agreed and Paul arranged suitable investments. Results have been good providing us with safe and decent income during difficult financial times. An interim Review has successfully tweaked investments. We are pleased with our present situation which we feel largely results from Paul’s understanding of our needs and his sound advice.

Chris and Pam R

Given my experience I feel that the company/individuals operate in such a way that the concept of treating customers fairly is central to their culture – strongly agreed by DP – March 2014.

We have been clients of Absolute Sense for many years and have always found them to be helpful, friendly and professional. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

James Ross Consulting

We were really pleased with the assistance Peter gave to arrange our mortgage, we had special circumstances that made it difficult to find a suitable product at a reasonable cost from a high street lender but Absolute Sense were able to arrange one for us. Many thanks, I’m sure we will return in 5 years time to renew.

All the staff at Absolute Sense have been a great help during our remortgage. Always available on the end of the phone or email. I cannot recommend the service they have provided us with highly enough. They have taken all the fuss and any headaches out of the process. Thanks to you all.

Jeff and Justine Whitlam

Following a recommendation we became clients of Absolute Sense about 5 years ago. We have been entirely satisfied with the service and advice offered and the investment results achieved. With limited recourses we now have a structured financial plan that matches our retirement lifestyle objectives.Their people are friendly, helpful and flexible. We wish we had the recommendation years sooner!

I have personally used Peter Waggitt’s financial services on a number of varying occassions and he and his colleagues have provided me with a first class service; in some cases introducing schemes that I was unaware of that have delivered great value.
