I had a UK Will which I thought might cover me here but wanted to check. Holborn Assets were super knowledgeable, the process was so quick and a lot cheaper than I expected. It was a relatively formal process, I could tell they write Wills for British expats a lot. I didn't realize how important it was to get a Will so I really recommend any British expat, even if you have a Will, to have one written here too.
Very friendly and helpful company. Recently needed to Re-Mortgage and the Holborn Mortgage department/Jo Philips was very good in helping me with this. No issues, only one being the lifts in the building take ages.
I really recommend a Frank Hutchinson at Holborn Assets. He won't mind me saying he has been involved in financial services since the year dot. He is very well respected in industry and has years of experience.

I can also vouch for Frank Hutchinson from Holborn Assets (this popped up when I Googled him so thought I might as well chip in). He seems to have a good team around him, efficient and professional. They always get back to my questions. Did a pension transfer around 2 years ago and have since organised critical illness insurance and a short term savings plan.
Good experience ... company is run by a team of expat brits who actually care.. unlike most! No complaints so far :)
I have been a client of Holborn Assets for 2 years now. I can personally recommend Holborn Assets and my advisor without any hesitance. He has always been professional in conduct and patient when offering the best options that suited my current financial state at that time.
My adviser at Holborn Assets is Steve Lawton and has been for around 2 years. Steve has always been professional in his approach and patient at providing different options with details presented in a format I could understand as a non-finance person. More importantly he takes the time to understand his clients goals and objectives and is sensitive to their circumstances.
After my family living out in Dubai for the past 27 years and knowing the place very well and me, my wife and children looking for a little change from the UK, we decided to move out to Dubai after being able to secure places for our children at GEMS School for the following September.

As my wife's parents had used Holborn Assets before and also knew one or two of the people there, we gave Holborn a ring to look into Life Insurance just incase the worst ever did happen.

Overall Holborn Assets did a fabulous job and I couldn't fault much if anything. We told the adviser how much insurance we wanted (in our case $2,000,000) and he began looking for the best policy to cover myself and my wife that was in our budget bracket.

Again, no problems, got us what we needed in near to no time and now just incase, we are covered. 10 out of 10.
Get life insurance from Holborn Assets!!!
I started working with Danny Quinn in 2012 shortly before the birth of my first child. His professionalism, understanding and clarity gave me trust in him and he has not let me down. Timely follow ups when required and always available when needed, I have no hesitation in recommending him for his growing client base.
A lot of fake holborn assets complaints on the net so nice to see some real feedback. A decent company run by good people, of course you should always ask for the individual consultants qualifications, experience and client testimonials but in terms of overall quality holborn assets are head and shoulders above the chop shops you find in dubai. Sam Ebbs and Janet Knight I can personally recommend.

Agreed about the fake complaints - Janet Knight in particular has helped me so much. Trust her with my life!

Thanks for this feedback. I have been researching investment companies in the UAE for the past few days solidly after coming into a bit of money. A lot of contrasting information online, some glowing reviews and some awful reviews about all financial services companies in this region (UAE). Not sure what to think - appears some people have amazing experiences while others have awful ones!

Am going to meet with an advisor from Holborn next week. Will provide an update after (good or bad - we will see!)
used holborn assets for years, agree with all the feedback. nice bunch who do a good job. also agree that the lifts in their building are a nightmare
Yes agree with above reviews best in dubai for sure. Sam Ebbs is my adviser and never had any complaints
Holborn Assets hosted a seminar for expats who had recently moved to Dubai and I can honestly say the help and support they gave out (for free!) has benefited me so much. The woman who was running the class - I think her name was Julia, talked about things I hadn't even thought about - like whether or not we should be paying student loans in the UK or why paying Income Tax is advisable, even though I am earning outside of the UK. I was so impressed by her knowledge, she made it clear holborn assets had a lot of experience dealing with expats and UK tax etc. I thought I was too young to need a financial adviser (I am only 24) but now I have a plan that means I will be able to buy a house in the UK in only 3 years :)
Holborn Assets are located in Dubai and offer lots of different things, I got a will from them after recently moving to Dubai from the UK.

I wanted a will for me and my family as we did not have a legal will that would be accepted in Dubai under Sharia Law, so we contacted Holborn Assets.

After looking at a few Financial companies in the UAE, Holborn Assets kept coming up as a suggestion from my more experienced expat friends, so we decided to go with Holborn.

Overall Holborn Assets were very professional, fast and did the job with no problems, would defiantly use again and recommend them to anyone reading this.
I recently used Holborn Assets as they were recommended to me by a friend. I had only just moved to Dubai, but my friend had been living in Dubai for many years, so I took her word and used Holborn Assets.

Firstly, I rang Holborn Assets who were very friendly and passed me on to the appropriate representative/adviser. After talking with the adviser from Holborn Assets for about 10 minutes, I was asked to book a meeting with them either at my house or their office. I chose to go to their office and was rather nervous as I don't do well meeting new people.

When arriving at their office, it did take 10 minutes to get up due to the not so impressive elevators, but I was greeted by a very nice lady called Chimaa who made me tea and biscuits while I waited for the adviser, I had to wait 10 minutes, but then again I was 20 minutes early.

When meeting the adviser he was very friendly, knew what he was talking about, and in the end he even sold me the idea of transferring my UK Pension which I don't regret.

Everything top-notch at the moment with Holborn Assets, in the middle of doing some investments with them now so will see how that goes and report back, but like I said, so far 5 out of 5 all round.
