Trustworthy and diligent

“The Britton and Manners families have dealt with H.F.Dodds from around the mid 1960's with all aspects of insurances, life policies and wealth management from Mr John Henderson's time and until more recently with Nick Humble. At all times we have found the firm to be very trustworthy and diligent in all aspects of advice, and very discreet. H.F.Dodds can be relied upon to offer the very best of all round advice and from our experience can offer a prompt and reliable service and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
