What they say

Some of the people we have helped have been kind enough to share their thoughts about working with us.

prudential-plc-logoClaire and Dave have always been very creative at designing research methodologies. I would highly recommend them to any new client.

IAGWe found Dave and Claire to be a breath of fresh air in the area of financial services research – prepared to challenge the brief and client assumptions, and with an excellent understanding of the market context. They are flexible and easy to work with, and are professional presenters who have a mastery of the research findings but do not overwhelm the audience with technical detail. We have no hesitation in recommending Strictly Financial to other organisations wanting to truly understand their customer market context and unlock the potential in their brand

Selftrade-colour-logo-webI have worked with Dave and Claire for some years and I have always found both able to look beyond the brief to the business issues and apply their broader knowledge of the market context. Not only has their research been well conducted, but the delivery of the findings and the insights have been first rate.  I like working with them, which is important in a business relationship. Their flexibility, grasp of the brief and the underlying business issues and their insightful delivery of the findings all add a great deal of value to the research they conduct.
