"Exceptional service from David Whiffin We have worked with IMC for our mortgages, financial planning and advice for a number of years, most recently we have worked closely with David Whiffin who has been an outstanding advisor to Ian and I as a will planning and financial adviser. He has guided us through all the steps in a down to earth, approachable manner, providing us with all the technical information and input required. He achieved most of this during lockdown which was even more impressive. Delightful to deal with, patient, knowledgeable and very professional - we would both thoroughly recommend him."
