Life Fitness is a $1B global matrix organisation with a mission to create fitness solutions to help people lead active and healthy lives. We have worked in partnership with Nigel and A E Thomson in the UK for over 15 years. Nigel always takes the time to keep abreast of what’s going on in the organisation and knows our people and industry very well!
We work with A E Thomas to ensure we offer competitive Private Medical Insurance, Life Insurance and Pension Plans for our 120 employees. They handle the annual renewals, time-consuming negotiations and always ensure we get the best options available in the market.
When I asked our payroll manager to describe Nigel in just one sentence she said “honest, approachable, knowledgeable and friendly” and I couldn’t agree more – we often feel like he is an extension to our team.
Nigel also advises many of our employees, including myself on their personal finances. He takes the headache and stress out of many daunting life events, such as a first-time house purchase, through to mortgage renewals, planning for retirement and the all-important (and often confusing) savings and investments. I never feel that any question is too trivial and he is very patient in taking the time to ensure my understanding.
He truly is a breath of fresh air and I hope we continue to work in partnership both professionally and personally for many years to come.– Life Fitness

Mr Boyall has been looking after the pension interests of both my late husband, Roger Turff, and myself for the past thirteen years. I cannot speak highly enough of the service he has given, his advice and the manner in which he has managed our affairs.– Sarah Turff
We are not wealthy people and thus have limited funds available and are certainly not substantial clients. This has never been a consideration and both my husband and I felt that we have always been given the time and service which would usually have been accorded to far larger clients with far more extensive finances.
After the loss of my husband, he is now advising me and I feel that my desire for a safe investment policy is not only being followed to the letter but is also achieving a perhaps surprising degree of growth.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him and particularly to women who find themselves in my situation.
Nigel at AE Thomson has been with us at every step of our financial journey through life. From being our employer’s company pensions advisor he has also arranged our first mortgage, life insurance, critical illness cover, investment ISAs and personal pensions when we both moved to being self employed. Nigel gives friendly, straight forward, jargon-free advice to provide complete peace of mind and magically sorts out all the paperwork making the whole process stress-free. We highly recommend AE Thomson’s services. Thank you for all your help!– Mr & Mrs Evans, Cambridgeshire
A E Thomson Ltd administer our company pension scheme with a totally professional and dedicated approach. They have worked with us over a number of years, and are able to explain the potential ‘minefield’ that is pensions, to make it perfectly accessible for the employees and keep us abreast of changes.– HR Director IT Company, South East
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Nigel and the team at A E Thomson for all of their help and expertise with our first two mortgage deals and invaluable financial advice.
We bought our first home in April 2014, as first time buyers and both being self employed we struggled to secure a good offer with our bank. We turned to Nigel who helped us every step of the way and made the whole process straight forward putting our minds at ease. Two years later and we’ve recently remortgaged with an even better offer thanks to Nigel, saving us considerably each month and allowing us to make significant home improvements adding value to our home. We highly recommend A E Thomson and won’t go anywhere else for help and advice with our financial needs. A truly personal and friendly service! Thanks again.– Mr & Mrs Blair
