He explained the things I didn’t understand and made something important (because I’d worked for it) become simple and understandable.

“Peter, I am honoured to be able to recommend you. For more than two years you have shown immense professionalism that went far beyond the “call of duty” as you found solutions to my multi-juridical conundrums/questions; many of which were of a “having one’s cake and eating it” nature. Not once did you show anything but a laser focused professionalism and the desire to find the best solution. Others have highlighted your honesty, supreme professionalism, attention to detail, customer focus, patience and more. To these I would only add your passion to improve the reputation of the industry through your personal behaviour and actions, and your seemingly endless studying as you deepen even further your industry certification.” V. Davey

I continue to be his client as I move towards a planned retirement and am confident that the plans he has put in place will allow me to be financially secure in the future.” Dave Popplewell

Responsive, well researched, and understanding of changing circumstances, he’s provided sound advice, and found solutions to difficult/unusual issues.

I have enormous trust in him.” Robin Hutchinson

Peter is an outstanding financial planner who balances his technical prowess with effective soft skills. His approach is to put his clients’ best interests at the heart of his business, with his mental technical library accessed where necessary, and the ability to explain technical concepts simply. Throughout our journey thus far, he has posed brilliant questions, challenged where anything isn’t clear, and made evident his want to be the absolute best he can be for his clients. Having met Peter for coffee, in between our online tutorials and discussions, I found him to be personable, courteous, and very sharp. If you’re looking for an international financial planner, why not give Peter a call and find out for yourself?” Michael Pashley

As we all go fast through life we rarely stop and think “am I doing the right thing with my finances?”, and Peter helped me sort out these aspects.

“I am delighted to recommend Peter Button in his capacity of financial advisor and financial management. My being an inherent sceptic he quickly laid to rest my fears and anxieties with my financial requirements as a UK expat to the Netherlands. A number of years have passed and I am still delighted with the advice he gave me. Keep it up Peter and best wishes” Virginia Jonker

“My husband and I contacted Peter to assist and advise us with regards to starting our investment journey as a young family. Peter offered helpful and wise financial advice which we really appreciated. He helped us to fully understand the ins and outs of investing and provided a sturdy investment plan for our future investments. He is really knowledgeable in his field. We also thoroughly enjoyed his friendly and approachable manner. An overall great guy who really understands the world of investing.” Nerina Mills

“I received cold calls on a regular basis with the usual “I came across your profile on LinkedIn…”, Peter is different. I enjoy our relationship, which is built on trust, integrity and confidence. He is very personable and this is important, but not as important as offering sound advice and the right recommendation for the client. Peter makes topics easier to understand enabling me to make informed decisions and sleep well at night in the knowledge that I am taking the right actions now to plan for the future of myself and my family!” Kevin Molyneux

”I can’t rate Peter highly enough, his unique quality is that he does genuinely have YOUR interest as a priority, not his own. Peter works with the ethos that if he helps you achieve your goals, then naturally he will be subsequently rewarded, by word-of-mouth. He is also lightening fast, you never have to wait a day for an answer, and he is very meticulous. Cherry on the cake is that he is a great person, friendly, and positive-minded. I highly recommend Peter, it will be one of the best decisions you ever made !” Mr. Philip Guard.
