What some of our clients have been saying about us
Eamonn’s knowledge of financial matters and pension options is wide-ranging and consistently up to date.
We therefore have no hesitation in recommending the services of Gallagher and Tarran to friends and colleagues.
N & N F Tyne & Wear
A big thank you to Eamonn and Christine for their pension and investment advice. They have saved us a small fortune; improved our cash flow and given us a sound foundation for what we hope to be a comfortable retirement. All of this has been conducted in a personable manner with a genuine concern for getting to know us and ensuring that their advice is exactly matched to our hopes and aspirations.
Carole & Richard L, Middlesbrough.
I would highly recommend Gallagher & Tarran. Christine’s advice has simplified matters for me and her assistance has been invaluable.
Lisa Robinson Tynemouth
As a busy doctor with limited time to analyse the best way to invest for the future and also understand the intricacies of an NHS pension, I have found Gallagher & Tarran a solid reliable way of ensuring my retirement investments and plans are in place with the maximal benefit to me and my family.
Dr & Mrs RM, Teesside
We can’t thank Christine and Eamonn and their team enough for their help, patience and advice over the last 5 years, they offer and deliver an exceptional personal service which is always professional, efficient and effective. They have worked with us, and taken the time to get to know and understand us – it feels like a great partnership and most importantly we are benefiting from the rewards of their advice.
Dr A Michie and Mrs Libby Hampson, Darlington
I met Eamonn over 10 years ago through my husband and he has been an invaluable help to me ever since in advising me and guiding me in the successful start up of my Farm Catering Business. Eamonn is a perfect gentleman and totally reliable.
Mrs Tracy Featherstone - Catering Consultant
Eamonn has been our financial adviser for about 10 years. He helped us plan for retirement and after. As well as a profound knowledge of pensions and investments, he has the ability to tease out and analyse your personal needs, so that you can achieve a secure financial arrangement that is tailored to your requirements. I would thoroughly recommend seeking his guidance.
Dr I Cobden Northumberland
“Christine is very thorough in her work and carries out very detailed market research, which is tailored around the individual person’s requirements. She is excellent in the advice she gives which is pragmatic and all- encompassing, and she offers a clear understanding of policies, highlighting the advantages and downsides of each, spending time on a one to one basis to provide detailed explanations.
I would unwaveringly trust Christine’s business acumen with monitoring my investments and handling my financial dealings, and would strongly recommend her to other colleagues who might want to consider investing or who might just want a complete review of their financial set-up.”
Dr Homi D Khasimai
“Christine has quite astutely unravelled the financial states of my and my family’s circumstances. Up until we met her and took advantage of her skills, we were content in the oblivious state of having a savings account which supposedly grew with time. She has since systematically analysed the financial state and advised accordingly. She is clear and forthright in her advice and does not hesitate in reviewing her recommended investments, to get the best possible returns for her clients. I feel a tremendous sense of relief that the future of my children and grandchildren is well looked after, with the financial arrangements she has helped us to put in place.”
Mr Suresh Wadhwani
Retired Consultant in Emergency Medicine
“I first met Eamonn Gallagher when I began planning for my retirement in 2009. His advice was based on his thorough knowledge and understanding of the employment and pension arrangements of medical professionals, after a detailed and meticulous appraisal of
my individual situation. His approach was professional and informed, allowing time and opportunity for me to explore and understand my options before making any final decisions.
Subsequently, he has maintained contact to review my affairs in a timely manner, and I am satisfied that his recommendations have been appropriate to ensure a healthy financial future for me.
I am very happy.”
Dr Janet Whiteway
Retired Consultant Urologist
“I do not know of anyone in the region who has the experience and such a complete grasp of the financial issues facing doctors as they approach retirement as Eamonn Gallagher. He speaks with tremendous authority on the very complex subject of the NHS Pension Scheme, and the impact of the recent changes in pension legislation. He has made a detailed analysis of my own situation and provided advice that I feel confident was right for me.”
Professor P (Newcastle)
I have followed Eamonn’ s advice for more than 10 years. He has an in-depth knowledge of hospital doctors' salary structure and the NHS Pension Scheme as well as being a qualified IFA. In my experience, this combination is rare.
When I decided to retire from the NHS at 55 years old Eamonn correctly advised me on handling my reduced Pension and he remains the only person in whom I am totally confident to fine tune my separate Personal Pensions together with the financial management of our family Sheep Farm and other projects in order to optimise my individual overall position. I would not have trusted any of my previous advisors to provide me with all the correct and balanced information that has been required thus far. He is and continues to be a trusted confidant and family friend.
