I have worked with Tyla on numerous complex transactions in relation to my pension plans and various other asset management requirements. There were many times that Tyla could have sold me products that seemed to be interesting, but Tyla clearly explained the hidden fees in these products and highlights the fine print. I highly recommend Tyla for any estate, retirement, tax or investment advice.
Head of Coverage and Sales
Tyla has a refreshingly open and straight-forward communication style. He is highly professional in his approach. He listens and is very thorough in gaining a good understanding of his client’s needs and objectives. He gained my confidence at an early stage and I have not been disappointed in the solutions he has proposed. He continues to engage, ensuring that investments remain relevant and in tune with any change in his client’s circumstances.

Tyla is a well-informed, proactive and trustworthy financial adviser. He is very approachable, client oriented, always makes time when needed and patiently explains all aspects of wealth management, however trivial they may be. Being the sceptical scientist that I am, it is often not easy for me to accept advice from others, but there is no doubt that the development of my finances has been much better under Tyla’s guidance than it would have been otherwise. In short, Tyla is a great professional and a great person.

I must say I was skeptical when I received a call to meet with Daniel. As everyone knows, there are many sharks lurking in the market looking for your money. My fear quickly subsided after our first meeting. Daniel asked me what I wanted to achieve with my investment portfolio and went back to his office to put something together that would meet my objectives. He is very knowledgeable with a no nonsense approach which I very much appreciate. His knowledge and strength with numbers are impressive to say the least. Daniel also took charge of my old investment portfolio that I have done with another financial institution. He gave me information on the hidden costs I had in my earlier investment which my last Wealth Manager conveniently forgot to mention. After a few amendments to my existing portfolio, my investment was making even more money.

I met Stuart in 2017 and I consolidated and transferred my UK pensions to a UK SIPP, I have always found Stuart to be very helpful, knowledgeable and professional, I’m so glad I took his advice and transferred my pensions, the portfolio investment has also grown by 9%. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stuart Bichard.
It's been a pleasure working with Stuart. He assisted me moving my pension to a SIP. From start to finish he has kept me well informed across the entire process. I can highly recommend working with him and look forward to doing so myself.
Advisory Solution Consultant
I met Stuart in Auckland, I used to be so sceptical about pensions and transferring them, after a few meetings with him it really began to make perfect sense, I transferred my pensions in to another scheme, and all I wish is I done this years ago. The advice I received was spot on, and since transferring, the performance, flexibility, visibility and updates I get from Stuart and his company have exceeded my expectations. If anyone is considering transferring their pensions all I would say is don’t be a sceptic and take Stuart Bichard’s honest quality advice.
Consumer & Lifestyle Director
I sat down with Stuart Bichard to review my situation and finances and my future goals. Stuart’s help and advice was completely honest and very transparent, he’s a very good listener and is a great guy to deal with. I would definitely recommend Stuart and will continue to use him with all my financial matters.
I lived in the UK about 18 years ago before returning home to France, I was aware that I needed to look at my UK pension options, I had a company pension scheme when I worked in Oxford. Stuart Bichard took the time to get the valuation and the details of my pension, but due to tax implications of me being in France Stuart advised I leave the fund in the existing scheme. Stuart's help and his explanation was genuine and he was helping me not selling, great service.
I live and work in Dubai and was recommended Stuart Bichard by a friend of mine to speak to with regards to my financial affairs. Stuart has always been available and has helped me immensely since being in Dubai, he is a true professional, a very honest guy and will continue to use his services and take his valuable advice.
Having many company and personal pension schemes in Various UK pension providers I needed help in finding the current values and to have them reviewed to see how they were performing. Stuart took a great deal of effort and time in gathering the information, and he actually advised me to leave them as they were. It was really refreshing knowing that Stuart was not trying to sell me anything and just gave me valuable solid advice.
I met Stuart on one of his trips to Auckland (New Zealand) and he worked with me to transfer my UK-based pension into a QROPS. I found him to be fantastically professional, highly knowledgeable and a very nice guy to boot. Trust is hard to come by when you're dealing with significant amounts of money that is important to your family, but he went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable with what I was doing, knew all the steps involved and that there was nothing hidden from view. It says a lot that I continue to hear from him even after the transfer, so his service is far more than just transactional. I enjoyed his company so much I even invited him over to meet my family over a beer. He still hasn't done taken me up on that, but I won't hold it against him. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Stuart to anyone who is looking to transfer their pension. He has a rare mix of knowledge, expertise and likability that's hard to beat.
Stuart is a great person to deal with - very efficient, organised and financially aware. Before meeting Stuart I was worried that transferring my UK pension would be a headache. From the outset Stuart took that worry away - the whole process was incredibly easy, and was concluded much faster than I thought. Highly recommended.
Stuart is a very professional and experienced pensions advisor. He was extremely proficient with my exchange of pensions and is very knowledgeable. Stuart has a very easy and friendly manner. It was a pleasure meeting and doing business with him.
Stuart is a professional in his line of work and been very helpful in unearthing pensions that I didnt know existed. I would recommend him highly for his work - I thought when I was first approached this must be a scam but its worked for me and suggest you try him and his company without any issues.
Stuart has been an immense help throughout the QROPS transfer process. He really understands his clients and their apprehension of entering into what for many is a daunting process. He's immensely approachable and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with him. If you're thinking of transferring into a QROPS scheme I'd have no hesitation in recommending Stuart.
I found Stuart to be very honest, trustworthy and a straight guy in all my business dealings with him
Having worked with Stuart and knowing his integrity, honesty, professionalism and financial services experience, I had no hesitation in instructing him to look at my UK frozen pensions. Stuart provided an excellent service combining all my pension funds into one easily managed product, a QROPS, which is gaining in value for the first time in years. Stuart provided a product to suit my individual needs with great flexibility for the future. I wish I had done it years ago. Stuart’s knowledge and understanding of the international pension market really is superb. I will recommend Stuart to friends, family and colleagues.
With my wife being from the UK we were aware that she had various frozen pensions in England but were unsure on how to find out the values, who the providers were and we did not know what we could actually do with them. Stuart explained everything extremely professionally and we both fully understood our position and the benefits of both QROPS and SIPP pension schemes. We signed a letter of permission with Stuart and within weeks we knew exactly the value of the frozen pension money we had in the UK and rather than the funds being in lots of different pots, we consolidated them all and moved them offshore. We were both so pleased with the advise and service, we will both continue to use and of course recommend Stuart.

Being an expat I was keen to find out what value I had in my pensions in the UK, I was recommended Stuart Bichard. Stuart's knowledge and advice was so helpful, and within a few weeks, I knew the value of my pensions and all my options moving forward. I will have no hesitation in continuing to use Stuart and would recommend him to my friends, colleagues and family.

I have been advised by Tyla for 3 years now. My initial position was extremely sceptical however, yet following his advice has led to my financial freedom with control over my future. Quite a number of old DB and DC schemes were hunted down by him so he demonstrated resilience and at no time was any pressure on me exerted. I continue to receive regular updates and really appreciate the personal touch from Tyla.
I have been a client of Tyla’s since December 2017, when he transferred my pension out of my company scheme. Tyla’s open and honest communication really assisted me in making this important decision. Tyla is professional, client focussed, and has been successful to date in achieving good returns on my investments.
I recommend Tyla to anyone seeking financial planing advise, particularly to expats wanting to make the most of their unique situation. I’ve known Tyla for nearly 2 years whilst working in Oman and during this time he has helped in my pension transfer and set up an investment product. What I especially like about Tyla is that he is able to cut through the financial jargon and explain products in a simple way. He also follows up on his promises and is keeping to his word to meet 2 or 3 times a year to review product performance, which I especially appreciate.
Tyla has been my financial planner for the past 2 years. I find him highly proficient, professional and provides information/recommendations in a very transparent way, giving me confidence in these important life decisions.

The advice provided at the time enabled subsequent efficiencies within my current portfolio and assisted me in redefining/reassigning medium to long term financial goals effectively. Solution focused individual, providing me with expertise/advise on planning:- - Retirement Provision - Self Invested Personal Pension Schemes (SIPPS)
I cannot recommend Tyla highly enough. A personal financial planner who acts with professional integrity and is dedicated to his clients. For most of us who enter this unfamiliar world for the first time, he explains things clearly but is always ready to answer the most basic questions with patience and humour!
Tyla has been helping me with my financial planning for a year now. He knows his business thoroughly, is easily reachable and always gives straightforward and reliable answers. I can warmly recommend him.

Training Consultant and Executive Coach
I met Tyla during my time in Dubai, he is a good financial planner and I can definitely recommend Tyla.
I met Tyla a few months ago to explore the best options to manage my retirement plans. He was recommended to me by a work colleague. Through my interactions with Tyla since we first met, I found him to have very sound knowledge of financial planning and the financial market at large, and an honest and straightforward approach with the primary concern of looking after my interest. He offered me tailored solutions that suited my plans that led me to happily sign in with him. In addition to my retirement plans, Tyla helped to tidy up a number of other financial matters that I have been neglecting for a number of years, which I greatly appreciate. I look forward to the continued support from Tyla over the coming period towards my retirement. Thank you Tyla for your support!

Process Improvement Specialist
When I started working in the Middle East, just about over a year ago, I was lucky to meet Tyla. Or maybe I should rather say that he found me, and for that I am grateful till this day. Tyla’s financial planning advice and guidance is solid and has the clients’ best interest as a first priority. When he sat down and worked out a strategic financial plan for me, he did so taking in consideration my financial position at that time, what I could afford and what my immediate needs were. After a few consultations, he tailored the plan to suit me, provided an outlook and vision for the future and executed accordingly. Not once did I have the feeling that he was just pushing a product. He makes a fuss about his clients, and the regular follow-ups by him is of great benefit. Such an approach makes me feel comfortable and at ease. I would definitely recommend Tyla to anyone who is seeking the guidance and help of a financial advisor. And on top of that he is a great guy!

Ian O'Neill RegPM CPPE
Lead Project Manager
As a new expat in Dubai, Tyla has been of great assistance to me. Most importantly, he asked me what I wanted instead of telling me what he assumed I needed, and then structured a solution accordingly. Tyla is extremely knowledgeable and personable and I would and have recommended him to others.
Head of Management
I've always found it difficult to create a trust relationship with financial planners. Tyla was the exception; he has a friendly approach and gives his best to provide an excellent customer experience in every way. I fully recommend Tyla.

Henrique Moser , PMP
Technology Lifecycle Manager
I had the opportunity of knowing Tyla since I moved to Dubai on early 2015, when he started to work as my finance advisor. I had a very good impression about him, mainly because of his professionalism, honesty and dedication to his clients. So, I’d recommend him to who else needs his assistance. Sincerely, Nic.
I started working with Tyla about 18 months ago - at the time I was also working with another financial advisory firm. I found Tyla's manner and approach very professional. He really thought through what was right given your circumstances and was in no way pushy towards one product or another. I've made a number of investments with Tyla and he has offered more general advice around a property purchase in the UK. More recently he has taken over the management of all my investments from my original advisory firm. I'm very happy to be working with Tyla and would certainly recommend him to others in the region.
Founder / Managing Director
I met Tyla Phillips 6 months ago. He approached to me offering a Retirement plan as 3 other agents of different companies. I made the desition to sign with him not because of the package (more or less al companies offer similar), because he is very trustful, speaks clear very straight forward. I'm very happy to have my retirement in his hands and looking forward to start new strategies with him.
I've known Tyla from when he took over our account relationship at Lloyds private banking. During the 4 years he provided excellent banking support, guidance and investment advice. Tyler is reliable, thorough and very client focused providing us with a service way beyond what we had been used to. I wish him well for the future and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
I met Asad in 2015 . He approached me with options for financial investments and retirement. I’m already dealing with him for the last 5 years and so far we have productive partnership . Hope to continue with the professional work and the growth by managing the investment portfolio . He is reliable , accurate and proactive.
Asad is my financial adviser since August 2015. I recommend Asad for his interest in seeking the best assets options according with my profile, by being a reliable professional and has experience in the Wealth Management sector.
Victor Menezes Vidal
Asset Performance Management
I recently had the very enjoyable experience of meeting Asad for a coffee and a chat on financial security and his professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail has proved to me that there are excellent Financial Planners in the GCC (not many I agree but Asad is one). We no longer need to suffer at the hands of mediocre "used car salesmen" something we have all experienced here in the GCC. Asad is like a breathe of fresh air. His manner, his knowledge and his experience grabbed me immediately and made me listen when honestly I had gone to my meeting thinking "another guy wanting to sell me something to get his commission". He respects his clients and came on time (early for both meetings, responded to emails in a timely fashion) and prepared. He knew his products and I never felt he was up-selling or even selling.Quickly into our meeting I was engaged and saw he understood the markets and had products that provide my requirements not something to lock me up for 25 years to maybe get a result. Subsequent to this my initial meeting I have taken a saving plan because it works for me against my age and retirement plan, not because he was selling. I am happy to recommend him and am happily talking to friends to see if they will allow me to refer them to Asad as I am confident they wont get the quick sell and will actually get something you want and need. I first need to break down their "used car salesman" mind-set but I will work to change that now I have someone I can confidently recommend.
Asad is friendly and explains things needed in a professional although understandable way. He is honest and takes reasonability for getting what is needed done on time and accurately. Asad is also punctual and understands the financial aspects of the clients life, he doesn't judge and he is a good listener. I would recommend Asad as he is a great financial planner for my family.

William provides constant updates and explains in detail each and every step. I feel very confident in his abilities and believe that my pensions are now in very safe hands.
