Vouchedfor Top Rated Advisor Guide 2024


We are really proud to announce that Four of our advisers – Michael Blair, Matthew Dixon, Melanie Dolphin and John White – are featured in The Times in ‘VouchedFor’s 2024 Guide to the UK’s Top Rated Financial Advisers’.

VouchedFor is like TripAdvisor, but for finding professional services. Clients can rate and review their financial adviser, helping others to choose the right one. The feedback is always verified to ensure it’s a genuine client, which means the ratings are extremely powerful.

Michael, Matthew, Melanie and John have all made the top rated list based on the many positive reviews they separately received over the past year. Here are some examples:

Chris, Cheltenham

“For the last nine months we have been searching for a truly Independent Chartered Financial Adviser.
We researched and interviewed 10 companies including some listed in The FTAdvisers 2021 Top 20 and Top 100 plus others big international financial fund managers and wealth management companies..
Although they claimed to have “Chartered and Independent status” they were not as independent as they claimed once we dug deeper into how they operated.
We rejected them all.
With more painstaking research we found Hartsfield Planning and in particular Michael Blair.
We have been very impressed by his straight forward, open, honest approach, his in depth knowledge of financial planning/investments/strategies, his analytical ability to listen and understand our objectives and needs.
With his passion and expertise, the Hartsfield ethos, the flexibility of being truly independent plus an award winning relatively young vibrant team we believe we have found the best team to partner with.
We look forward to a long lasting and profitable relationship with Michael Blair and Team Hartsfield.”

Laura, Swindon

“John provided me with clear and very thorough advice. He really took the time to get to know me and understand what I needed. He is a consummate professional with a wealth of knowledge which is imparted with refreshing simplicity, clarity and patience. If you are looking for a top class IFA, you have found him!”

Sandy, Hampshire

“First Class Financial Planning. From the first contact the service and advice given has been outstanding. We did not feel pressurised to make decisions or choices, and time was taken to discuss what we were looking for help with and the whole process has been a very positive experience and I would not hesitate to recommend Hartsfield. Shout out to Matthew Dixon who has been so patient and understanding with these financial novices.

Carolyn, Somerset

Melanie has helped by explaining everything in a way that is easy to understand and I haven’t felt at all pressured or rushed into making decisions on any of the financial options she gave me. I feel very reassured that Melanie or one of the team can be contacted for advice at any time and I feel very comfortable discussing my finances with them.
