Jonathan Laws ACA Ch.FCSI of Cameron James was phenomenal in explaining the UK pension program and offered wonderful advice whether to set up a SIPP account. From the US, it was frustrating to not know the financial terrain and Jonathan was patient with our endless questions and concerns. He is highly recommended and commended for his service.

After being exposed to 3 time wasting companies who completely messed up my DB pension transfer of a UK pension in the Channel Islands I found my Saviour Cameron James. I sent a request for information and received a phone call from Jonathan Laws. I cannot express in a few words how excellent and professional the service was from Jonathan. Everything explained to me up front, time frames and potential pit falls. His advice on a certain Pension company's tardiness on communication has been proved correct only this month. I wish I had contacted this company first as they are a delight to deal. If you have tried the rest now try the best!

I could not have wished for a more helpful, knowledgable and supportive person than Andere Casanova. Andere and the Transfer Team helped me through the whole process of transferring my pension to an UK SIPP which was quite a complex process. I cannot recommend Andere and Cameron James highly enough.

So far, I have a very positive experience dealing with James Cameron’s financial advisor Eduardo Simoes. Eduardo provided advise on my UK DB transfer. He thoroughly and professionally examined my current and anticipated future financial situation. He advised me on multiple options that I have available to pursue the DB transfer and to manage the transferred funds in my retirement years. I am very pleased with Eduardo’s advice and I intent to follow up on it when the market conditions become favorable.

Coming up to 55, I wasn’t sure what to do with my company pension but after some research, I discovered a company called Cameron James on YouTube. I watched most of the videos posted by their CEO, Dominic, who explained everything about how to transfer a DB and DC pension into a SIPP, or in my case and International SIPP, as I plan to move abroad.After performing my due diligence and making sure that they were a bona fide company who were registered with the relevant authorities, I decided to contact them to begin the process, several months before my 55th birthday.They referred me to one of their IFAs, Andere Casanova, who has guided me through the process from beginning to end with great professionalism and ensured the process was done very smoothly and without any problems, stress or issues of any kind.Andere is really quick at coming back and responds to queries straight-away and always with a laugh and a smile which has made the process as painless and enjoyable as possible.She is a credit to Cameron James and I would highly recommend her to anyone else who is thinking about transferring their company pensions into a SIPP.She is also now my trusted IFA on-going and will hopefully help me grow my funds and ensure that I have a nest egg to enable me to enjoy my retirement in the sun.Thank you Andere and Cameron James, I couldn’t have done it without you.

The advice that Jonathan Laws provided was outstanding. The detail provided was always at the right level and always at least 2 options provided with appropriate pros and cons identified. Extremely flexible in terms of time of day to take calls which working from America was very helpful. Just a wonderful experience, I have been trying to sort out issues with my UK pension for many years and Jonathan and Cameron James finally helped me to do that

I enquired about UK pension consolidation advice and was thoroughly impressed by the fast response and highest level of professionalism. I was seeking some help to understand how I can approach this complex and seemingly daunting process from an early stage. Luckily, I had the pleasure of speaking with Eduardo S. from Cameron James Finance. Eduardo carefully considered my personal circumstances and provided detailed answers to my questions, demonstrating deep knowledge of the market and potential options I can consider. Thanks to my initial conversation with Eduardo, I now have a better idea of what to look out for.

Mr D.C James is somebody who knows his job and does it extremely well. He speaks with great eloquence and has never stuttered when answering queries. He is very experienced (yet so young) and comes across as a very confident individual. His confidence and knowledge rubs off on clients who spontaneously gain his trust. Mr James was very clear and transparent in all aspect of how he/his team operate including fees and various timescales. He has a good presence in social media, he would not do anything adverse to jeopardise his reputation and stature. Before I approached Mr DCJ I was in dire straits. My position was one of great anxiety finding a reputable and trustworthy F.A to deliver my transfer before the deadline date and to make matters worse my pot was sitting with one of the most incompetent and inept companies. Mr James delivered within time and kept me informed all the way. Sometimes I would send him a message at weekend. To my surprise he responds as soon as he gets his notifications. I have had messages from him in the early hours of the mornings to late at night. Mr James is relentless and has a very efficient support team working along side him who are equally proficient in their work. I cannot praise this company enough and if it was possible I would give a 6 star rating.

As a UK citizen, who transferred to work overseas, on several occasions many years ago, with a UK based company, I had to join their overseas Defined Benefit pensions scheme, for those periods of employment. Nearing the age of retirement there was no shortage of pension transfer specialists prepared to advise on the transfer of my corresponding UK Defined Benefit scheme, however, finding an overseas pension specialist for UK citizens proved to be much more difficult.Eventually, I discovered Cameron James Ltd on You Tube and watched and tried to understand all of their video uploads before making contact. Having spoken to a number of transfer specialists their content seemed to be very well balanced especially highlighting the regulatory requirements and risks. When I made the initial contact, they responded to my initial enquiry within a matter of hours and an initial consultation zoom meeting soon followed.Over the following months, Jonathan Laws was always available, at any hour, to advise and guide me through the transfer process in a highly professional manner. His knowledge of the relevant legislation related to the transfers lead to an efficient transfer process.On the completion of the transfer the professional relationship with Cameron James Ltd and Jonathan Laws has continued into the investment phase. His insights have proved to be especially valuable in the current turbulent times.

As an expat, I had some questions around living in a foreign country abroad related to my future financial planning. I reached out Cameron James after speaking to several financial companies. I spoke to Jude Dawute, who was friendly, polite and always available. Jude and his team promptly responded to my questions, updating me frequently and following up as necessary. I can wholeheartedly recommend Cameron James to anyone looking for relevant financial services.

I have had plenty of approaches and some discussions over a five year period, since moving out of UK and having pension assets there. Consolidating my pensions into a single fund was a careful choice and CJ made it possible in a very tricky environment. financially it may or may not be a great decision but my motivation was not just financial. Just want to know the fund is safe and i can make decisions on its structure. Jonathan Laws has been a great companion on the way, helpful and clear, no pressure, willing to listen to my preferences. The markets dropped significantly and my return this year will be below inflation I guess, but I have been able to make some timing and fund choices which I am very comfortable with. I would recommend Jonathan for the transfer and investment process - it has been recent and I have faith that CJ will continue to provide a personal and caring service - ask me in a few years!

As an expat, I wanted to consolidate my two UK pensions into a SIPP, and I am pleased that I chose Cameron James after spending many weeks researching several financial companies. I want to give a special shout out to my adviser Jonathan Laws, who was always accessible. Jonathan and his team promptly responded to my questions, updating me frequently during the entire pension transfer process. All went smoothly. I can wholeheartedly recommend Cameron James to anyone looking to transfer their UK pension. Also, they have several videos on YouTube if you are looking for more information and advice.

In my experience, Cameron James is a professional team. Having done a great deal of due diligence before embarking on the DB Transfer process, what is immediately obvious is the amount of information available on their website which persuaded me to make the initial contact. The site covers all aspects of the transfer process, particularly the cost involved which are all transparent at the start. The back-office team have worked diligently, providing constant updates throughout the process. If I can advise anyone contemplating a DB Transfer, and as has been said before, do not underestimate the extremely tight time constraints involved, the legal processes that need to be followed, the emotional roller-coaster and the level of detail analysis it takes for the best outcome. Johnathon Laws deserves a particular mention of thanks from me, he comes across as an honest, efficient, hard working individual. All emails sent to him whether it be a particular concern or query are replied without delay. This attitude further enforces the building of a relationship based on trust, both initially and during the transfer process, which, by the way takes many months to complete. Finally, my comments above hopefully gives a short description of my experience of working with Cameron James. As to my future relationship, I’m currently positive that the financial advisory role which they provide, will reinforce my high expectations of a successful future.

After an initial WhatsApp conversation with Dominic, I recently had a meeting with Jude at Cameron James about a potential DB final salary transfer. Both Jude and Dominic were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional, and helped me better understand my situation and the processes involved with such a transfer.I can wholehearted recommend Cameron James if you're looking for similar advice. Thanks Jude and Dominic for the help.

I would thoroughly recommend the team at Cameron James for expat pension advice. I had accrued a number of UK DC pensions before moving overseas and wanted to consolidate them into one more easily managed fund and to work with a firm that could advise on the best use of that fund when I retired. I spoke with both James and Jonathan at Cameron James and they talked me through the pros, cons and process of transferring the funds into a single International SIPP. The transfer was straightforward on my end and Cameron James kept me updated with a short weekly email stating where each pension was in the process. So far I have been very impressed with the personal service I've received.

I selected Cameron James to help with transfer of a UK pension fund into an international SIPP after vetting 5 possible candidates (3 in the UK and the 2 in the USA). I found them to be very professional, easy to work with, transparent (fees etc.) and very timely with responses. They are very knowledgable about the most up to date UK legislation related to pensions and prepared a very detailed report before a final decision had to be made. Our contact was very thorough and always followed up to make sure that we were well informed every step of the way.Highly recommended.

Dominic and his team did a great job moving my final salary pension to a SIPP. This is not an easy or cheap process, but Dominic understands it very well and completed the transition in a very efficient manner within a short deadline. Dominic is always very responsive, answered all my questions and was easy to contact. Thank you for your support, I am looking forward to see the results of this investment

I was amazed to get a phone call from the UK...I'm in Australia so thatreally impressed me. My query was about moving to the UK.

I contacted Jonathon Laws at Cameron James to help consolidate my UK pensions into one SIPP for improved guidance on how the funds were to be invested. Having reviewed more than 3 other companies, Cameron came out on top, however what impressed me the most was how Jonathan provided immediate response to my questions. His knowledge and attention to detail, made me confident that I made the right decision. Highly recommend Jonathan at Cameron James - above all expectations.

Jonathan Laws is great both professionally and interpersonally. He explains everything very clearly . Finding a professional that can help transfer a British pension when you are an expat who lives in the USA is not easy and there are many people that say they can help but are not able to. Jonathan is knowledgeable about the transfer process and communicates what is going on every step of the way. I have no qualms in recommending him and will continue to use his services. A+++++

Like many of us reaching retirement age now I had a number of company pension schemes all with different providers. Cameron James enabled me to bring these together into one scheme. The financial advice is excellent and clearly explained all the way through. The investments within the scheme are intelligently placed and at a risk level within my comfort zone. I can't imagine that a different choice would have been better.

As I was approaching retirement, I wanted to convert my DB pensions to DC and then combine all my DC company pensions in one place to manage the pot better for better returns than the incumbent pension administrators had been delivering. The solution had to be tax efficient in both the UK and US. I spoke to 5 advisory companies who all came across as knowledgeable, professional and responsive, but Cameron James beat the others out with the best overall value proposition including a tenacious approach to converting my DB pensions at best value (which is the only way you'll ever get it done). Since signing on with Cameron James I've been very pleased with the information I can easily seek out from them as well as the proactive advice that they offer.

As a UK Expat living in the USA looking for a financial advisor for UK based money the problem is without doubt "trust". Who do I trust with my pension? Cameron James answered my concerns and in particular, Dominic James Murray was very helpful and walked me through all my issues enabling me to do my due diligence. As International Financial Advisors, I have complete confidence in their abilities and would recommend them without hesitation. Very professional, highly skilled and trustworthy.
