Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

I was having such a hard time figuring out how to transfer funds from UK Personal Pension into Canada and as luck would have it found Mark’s company Sterling Advisory online. He does specifically this and was so thorough, professional, clear, concise and always available to answer my questions. He did all the work to make the transfer happen and even went through documentation in a zoom call to explain what needed to be signed and where. I’m so glad to have found Mark and would highly recommend his services to anyone in the same situation. My wife is now using Sterling Advisory for her UK Pension transfer and feels the same about Mark’s high level of service and care.

I was recommended to Sterling Advisory by friends who had previously used Mark’s services. I was FINALLY getting around to transferring my UK pension to Canada and wasn’t looking forward to the process. Mark handled the whole thing with integrity and a calm; the whole thing went quickly and effortlessly and I was very impressed with the service I received!

I could not recommend someone more highly. Mark Walker’s pension experience especially when dealing with UK company pension transfers was excellent. Mark helped me successfully transfer a UK pension over to Canada. The timelines were very tight yet Mark ensured everything was in place and ready to go ahead of time and worked incredibly quickly to resolve any issues. If you need a financial advisor with excellent overseas pension transfer experience who is both reliable and personable then look no further.

I found Mark recommended from one of the expat sites for Canada. I have been in Canada for 14 years and have been putting off bringing my UK work pension to Canada until new schemes for Canada came back on the QROPS list. I contacted Mark who was extremely professional and took me through the whole process. He is very responsive and helpful in navigating all the forms and the challenges that COVID has added to the process. My pension is now in Canada and Mark is always available on the phone for any questions I have. Highly recommend Marks’s service.

I needed to transfer a deferred pension from the UK to Canada and found the right person to do it….Mark Walker. Mark liaised with the UK company and Investment company in Canada and kept me informed every step of the way. It was a difficult process due to the demands of the UK company and took longer than anticipated, however he got it done!

Sterling Advisory Inc. managed the transfer of my pension from England into an RRSP here in Canada. They managed all of the paperwork and communication between the English pension company and the QROPS bank and they acted in an extremely professional manner throughout the transfer process. At no time was I left in the dark regarding the progress of the transfer and it is all the more remarkable that it was managed in such a short time frame bearing in mind that the UK was in a lockdown due to covid 19 at the time. In short, Sterling Advisory Inc. are a very professional and competent business offering exceptional service and timely advice. I highly recommend them for all of your financial needs.

Mr. Martin H.

After moving from the UK, I needed to consolidate my 4 UK pensions and my wife’s pensions so that I had simple access to them all in one place. I contacted Mark as I had seen some posts from him on a blog (British Expats) and he always seemed to give good advice.

Mark had a meeting with myself and my wife here in Vancouver and explained what could be achieved and started off the process of contacting my numerous pension companies.

We now have all our pensions under one roof here in Canada. The investment package over the last year or so has exceeded Marks estimates in terms of value despite the tough financial year.

His advice was excellent and Mark handled everything exceptionally well so that I had no chasing up to do at all and he made the process simple for us. We would definitely recommend Mark and would certainly use Mark again in the future.

Mr. Alan A.
Vancouver, BC

Since we immigrated to Canada from the UK, Mark has been of great assistance. He has the unique experience of having been an IFA in both the UK and Canada and so has been able to advise us as to which products to use for our pension, education savings and life insurance. His experience has been especially useful when transferring pension funds from the UK to Canada. I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone with similar requirements to our own.
