What do our clients think?
Thank you, I must say, I find your firm's service and that of the Helpdesk in particular FANTASTIC. I speak with some knowledge of service industries as I spent my life in a service company, Reuters Limited.

Your colleague provided some outstanding service - prompt, helpful and comprehensive advice. My experience to date of Charles Stanley has really been first class, I am very impressed - please keep up the good work when shortly I submit my form to you to transfer my Stocks and Shares ISA from Hargreaves Lansdown!

Without a single exception, and over a number of years, I have found that the person who first picks up your phone always solves all of my problems. They are always very helpful, pleasant, and are all very well trained. Thank you.

The service was exemplary when I transferred my SIPP. I was kept fully informed throughout the process. The CSD team was also extremely friendly and helpful with my complicated financial requirements.

I find the CS Direct website very efficient, well designed and easy to use. On the rare occasions when I have had any difficulty or a query, the staff have responded promptly and resolved the matter competently.

I’m a software engineer so I understand how difficult it is to design a system for a complex industry aimed at non-expert users. Your team have achieved a brilliant balance between usability and functionality and the website is a joy to use. Well done!
