Meeting with Clients and Core Values
Mark believes that trust is important when dealing with a financial specialist and Mark’s preference is face-to-face meetings, which provides a better client-advisor connection. However, since covid, a lot of time can be saved with online meetings via Zoom and Microsoft teams.
As the client is of highest importance, Mark is happy to provide face-to-face or on-site presentations where required and feels this is highly valuable, particularly for initial/first meetings.
Another one of Mark’s core values is “responsive service”.
Mark believes that aiming for 24 hour response time wherever possible is important and while he checks his emails regularly, he deems being available directly via phone is a value added service in a world which is moving rapidly into automation only. As someone who prefers talking to a human, Mark is always open to talking on the phone or in person.
