George was super helpful, professional and hugely informative when discussing mortgage options. He gave an accurate timeframe and stuck to it. Not a single complaint. We subsequently also spoke to Mike and had an extended discussion with regards my pension and financial situation. He explained everything clearly and answered all my questions with no pressure to 'on-board'. We haven't yet taken things further, but this is due to my disorganisation and lack of time and energy, rather than a lack of willingness.



Pension advice. Financial planning and tax optimisation. Saved me £50k in tax when spotted a mistake in my accountants calculations regarding applying for individual protection. Really friendly, helpful and reliable. Every time I have used them I have been better off as a result. No hard sell of life insurance, portfolio planning etc but again extremely valuable advice when it’s required. Fantastic service.

I have been working with Mike Harms and Medical & General for the last 5 years. Initially this was help with finding a suitable income protection product after finding I no longer had the level of cover I thought I had with a previous company. We moved away from the area but have continued to use the company as we felt we could trust the advice given and everything is always explained really well. We have gone on to use their services for other products including life insurance and mortgages. Nothing is too much trouble and communication via the online portal is really helpful.

Some years ago I was considering retirement from the NHS and met Mike, from Medical and General, at an evening meeting regarding pensions options, whilst planning to continue to work in the NHS for a few more years. Further to that meeting, I did take my pension and was guided through the process by Mike. Having taken my pension, whilst continuing to work in the NHS, Mike has advised and supported me through the process of investing my capital sum in a variety of financial vehicles. We meet regularly and communicate frequently regarding my financial portfolio, which is being managed appropriately with rebalancing when deemed necessary. Mike has also been helpful in giving advice with regard Capital Gains and personal short-term financial management. My portfolio plan was based on the longer term, and certainly currently that plan is earring fruit, following a period of strong financial growth in the markets.

I work in the NHS and looked to take early retirement and needed expert advice about my pension. Mike Harms from Medical and General had a thorough knowledge of the complexities of the Pension scheme and has been able to allow me to maximise my opportunities financially and professionally.

My wife and I have been consistently impressed by Mike and all he has done for us over the last few years. We found him when we were trying to obtain a mortgage. Due to very complex working arrangements where I was becoming self-employed and my wife was embroiled in the Junior Doctor Contract dispute, we had been declined several times by various banks, and another large medical financial advisor company based in Exeter had only managed to give us a very poor deal on a mortgage that we could not afford. Thankfully, through a lot of hard work and insider knowledge Mike managed to get us a mortgage with better rates than any of the others we had looked at. He then managed to explain about all the other insurance products we might need in terms we could understand, and we were free to pick the products we felt we needed. I highly recommend Mike and his team to all my colleagues as I genuinely haven't found anyone out there that gives better financial advice.

I received a very helpful personalised advice on my NHS pension.



Came recommended by word of mouth and they deserve every success. Huge up to date knowledge and experience and excellent advice about the NHS pension scheme. Woks very well with, but completely independently from, my accountant and from financial / insurance institutions. I am highly likely to continue with their advice for my future financial decisions.

Outstandingly helpful. Mr Harms spent a lot of time explaining pension issues and options for management. Very knowledgeable. I can thoroughly recommend!



Great service. Good communication. No pressure. Excellent appropriate products recommended. Felt very comfortable dealing with them.
