What our investors say
I would like to thank Trendscout and your team for the excellent job, thank you for looking after my interests. I am, as you know, a busy woman running my travel business and as a professional believe that when I know I am not competent to deal with I should find someone who is. In Trendscout I have found that. My mind is at ease as I know I get the best and most personal service.
Having met the Trendscout team as members of my regular weekly local business referral meeting, we subsequently arranged to meet to discuss my personal financial circumstances.
They quickly helped me get to grips with the complexities of my situation and gave me the guidance I needed in amending my financial plans for my business for the immediate and long term.
My Customer Relations Manager at Trendscout has shown to be not only a great friend but a person with great knowledge , experience and integrity. One gets the feeling if you’re not comfortable with the deal, then my CRM isn’t comfortable. She has always taken the time to answer questions and explain things. Not very often do I do recommendations but this gal gets an A+.
Good service, meeting the founder was a great touch. I now have an all-inclusive knowledge covering how seed enterprise investment schemes work.
I’ve been working with Trendscout for a good while now, and i must say these guys are on the ball. The preparation, information and video introductions are really good and comforting to know who your talking to.
When i first spoke to the team on the phone. They made it so easy to understand EIS ( Enterprise Investment Scheme) and SEIS (Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme).
Finding a company open to helping me build an ethical portfolio with thoughtful analysis, supportive commitment and good results has been very reassuring.They offer a proactive and personal service and are always available to answer queries. Developing strong relationships with their clients is clearly a priority for this company. 10/10
I would recommend Trendscout to anyone looking for sound investment opportunities accompanied by a professional service. I always find Adam Haider knowledgeable and professional in my dealings with him. He has helped me understand the businesses I have invested in and I like the fact that he gives you the information to help you make an informed decision.
