We have been clients of Dodd & Co from when we established our first business in 1983. Throughout our years of working together, as our businesses have evolved we have found their advice to be sound, practical and relevant. This has enabled us to feel confident and secure in the knowledge that we are being looked after in a professional manner in all our financial planning. Being true professionals, they always respond in a prompt and courteous manner to any enquiries regarding the working details of our businesses. Their dedicated staff are always available to assist with any queries which may arise in a working day. We have always been more than satisfied with the guidance we have received from Dodd & Co and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone requiring financial guidance.
