Hi, just wanted to say how grateful I am for the advice and help of Randal Stephens and SJB-Global. He answered every question and guided us through the process step by step. The advice he gave has enabled us to have a much rosier financial future in retirement. Through dealing with him now for the past 6 months, I can tell you he is a man of integrity. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing financial advice regarding pensions. I look forward to working with him on my investments going forward.

I did not know what to do about my pension cos I've been living in Greece for 25 years. Ben Eccles from your company was exelent. He helped me more than I thought anyone would. He is an asset to the company. If I asked him for help for something your company was not involved with he gave me the right contacts so that I could get the right answers.

I dealt with Jake Barber of SJB, who assisted me with the transfer of role of investment adviser to his firm, and more importantly with the divestment from assets I had previously been lumbered with (with no consultation I might add). I am now happy with my current investments, and as of yesterday I can see that I am back in positive territory (after withdrawals).
Jake was clear in his instructions, patient with my guarded trust (after dealing with previous “advisors” I was probably not at all easy to deal with), and the whole transfer went smoothly.
I would highly recommend both Jake and SJB Global.

I was someone with no knowledge of pensions, SIPP's or the whole retirement process yet had two pensions in the UK that was receiving limited returns. Jake Barber and his team were able to educate me to the level I needed, they were patient, always available, extremely knowledgeable and very due-diligent on keeping me informed of the process and my options. I am in Singapore, thousands of miles from SJB Global yet I was made to feel that I was just next door with their exemplary customer focused approach. Excellent start to the relationship and I look forward to working with the SJB team going forward with the policies that they are managing for me …….. Thank you Jake and Team

Excellent service in transferring my pension. Randal Stephens answered all my questions very efficiently, even out of hours and at weekends. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking to transfer pension or looking at savings and investments.

I recently moved my business over as my last financial adviser ripped me off to benefit up front commission based investments and greatly reduced the value of my pension. With SJB' s Matthew Quinn i have recaptured my trust. He was very personal in his approach and we have a suitable trusted relationship restored. I just wish I had this from the start. Thanks Matthew!

Overall - excellent experience. Lewis from SJB Global explained the process very clearly and all aspects of the service SJB provides were clearly laid out for me from the start. During the process, Lewis provided me with all the information on my pension investment and was there to keep me updated on the progress. As corny as it may sound - he came across determined to help me direct my investments in the way most beneficial for me.
I was quite impressed with communication skills and levels of knowledge / experience on display. Everyone (especially Lewis) was professional, courteous and sincere. Having worked in financial industry before, this whole experience was very refreshing and praise-worthy. Happy to recommend them to anyone looking to consolidate investment portfolio.

Was very satisfied with the service and advice I got from Jake Barber. He compiled a report recommending that I do not transfer and I was not charged at all. I appreciate his honesty and professionalism.

Excellent service with good results.
I am pleased with my decision to transfer the management of my investments and QROP to SJB.
Jake Barber has wealth of experience and deep knowledge of financial markets and investment opportunities.
Management fees are lower than the big corporates (like DeVere) and I see that SJB are working hard to protect and grow my investments for the best possible return.

I have moved away from another wealth management company who were not performing as I expected (constant change of advisors, limited contact and poor fund performance), and Lewis Sell and the SJB team have been a breath of fresh air with the way they have handled the transition. All my questions have been answered promptly and with efficiently - I could not ask for more. Looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship....

I did not know what to do with my British pension because I have been living in Australia for 19 years and was looking for the best plan for me. Daniel Lattimer from your company was very knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process.
Review by Daveed Sarangdhar4 months ago
Our experience so far with SJB Global and in particular with Ben Eccles has been outstanding! He assisted us in transferring a defined benefit plan into a SIPPS. Ben was very professional, patient, answered our questions and took us through the process without rushing us or putting any pressure on us. Ben was very thoughtful and attentive in answering our questions arising from our set of circumstances. We highly recommend SJB Global and Ben Eccles in particular!

I came across SJB Global whilst looking at what I should do with my pension pots. There is always a slight worry with taking all of your pension from "safe" areas like company schemes and putting it in the hands of "the investors" but SJB talked me through the process every step and we had frequent telephone meetings to discuss all the option. Both my wife and I were looking for some guidance and it turned out that as my wife's pot is smaller, and her attitude to risk was lower, SJB recommended that she should leave it where was (even though that meant 0% commission for SJB).
For me the process has completed, the money from my schemes is transferred into a managed fund and, as I live in Portugal I can access the money in GBP or Euro. Flexibility was key for me and this was taken into account in choosing the right product. All the due diligence and necessary checks were carried out in a timely manner and I can now see my funds online when I choose. All in all a pretty painless process and I am happy to recommend SJB.

I appreciated the time that my financial advisor took in explaining my proposed investment and specifically around my tax status and how best navigate these issues across multiple countries. Having only spoken over the phone with Sam he steered and advised me through the process and gave me great confidence we were making the correct decision.
I would strongly recommend Sam Barber for anyone looking at financial advise and investments.

Excellent hand holding through this somewhat lengthy and what seemed complicated process. If it hadnt been for them I may never have accessed my UK pension from my current destination.

since being contacted by SJB re. a pension, any personnel I have dealt with have been informative, honest, and professional. I never at any point felt as if were being pressured into making decisions. SJB were extremely helpful in my getting info from the UK as I don't live there. ultimately SJB acknowledged that in MY best interests we would leave matters alone until a further date. overall assessment: honesty and integrity seem to be SJBs hallmarks. I would have no hesitation in recommending them with regard to financial matters.
