Al Rush has made the difference

Al Rush


I’m surprised , a little freaked out – to be on a list of candidates for Professional Adviser’s personality of the year.

You can vote for me, but I’d rather you didn’t. I’d rather you voted for Al Rush who is not just a personality but a personal hero!

And the main reason I’ve got anything to be proud of -is because that lad drove me down to South Wales a couple of Novembers ago!

Here’s something that I got on Facebook messenger that means more than winning any award. It makes being a blogger worthwhile. I won’t embarrass the sender , but if he wants to reveal himself, he can comment below!

Good evening Henry , I’ve just seen that you liked my post on FB.

The fact is, I should tell you that your blogs , and appearance at the parliamentary committee , has helped me enormously..

I’m still not out of the woods , but I just wish I’d have had your advice a couple of years ago . I equipped myself with some print offs from said blogs(apologies if there is any copyright infringement 🙂 ) , and went to an IFA and was armored, protected empowered and that so , I’m eternally at your debt for . Kind regards….


Thanks for making my weekend!

Putting things in perspective

I know that some of my blogs are controversial and some have just proved me wrong. But with well over one million reads, I’d like to think that people get value from what I’m saying.

So this is what I am saying

Blogs may make a little difference but Al has made all the difference!

    I will also say Henry, that your blogs have given me a tremendous amount of help and insight, especially regarding Defined Benefit pensions.

    Al Rush too, has given me some invaluable advice on DB and DC when I needed it most.

    All this heavily influenced my decision to keep my British Steel Pension instead of taking my CETV.

    My vote is in.

    Many thanks to you both.

    Just for the record, I’m not the person that Henry refers to on Facebook messenger.

    Thanks Robert – but you are a great friend of this blog!

    Congratulations Henry.

    You are one of the few who will countenance opposing views on a forum, which (disappointingly) is exceedingly rare these days.

    Vote is in, best of luck.
