"Glenn has been my advisor for many years. I appreciate his openness, honesty and care. Although he has a wide experience and demonstrates a very sound knowledge of investment opportunities he respects my opinions and answers my questions with clarity. I find his attitude when discussing my portfolio directions to be both sympathetic to my needs and requirements whilst challenging me to explore various options which fit safely into my financial requirements. I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn as a professional, knowledgeable and caring financial advisor."

"The service is very interactive and Glenn always makes the time to address any queries/concerns. My wife and I had fragmented retirement funds, and this has now been brought under a single umbrella, which is much easier to track and control. I don't know how we would have been able to attend to all the documentation and reporting requirements of a SMSF without Glenn and Hewsion's."

"Glenn has handled two portfolios for just on 4 years, he is knowledgeable and very quick to respond to any queries we may have (very few) The quarterly review process carried out at our home works really well for an 80+ year old. his service is far superior to any of the two previous advisors who were connected to the big 4 banks and the charges are much more realistic."
