"Nick has been my, and my late husband's, financial adviser for more than ten years. Throughout that time, we have always felt extremely confident in Nick's knowledge and ability with our superannuation investments and time has proven that confidence to be well founded. We, and now I, always receive Nick's full care and attention when needed, whether that be in a scheduled meeting or in a crisis situation such as during my husbands final days. He is able to explain things clearly, and has the experience to give the right advice. I have recommended Nick to my relatives and friends and have the utmost trust and faith in his honesty and ability."

"Nick has been excellent at reassuring my husband and I through the process of retirement/investment. His vast knowledge and ability to convey a lot of complex information to us has been wonderful. Also his careful advice with regard to the handling of overseas inheritance problems has been spot on. And he always has time to (re)answer our many questions."

"Both my husband and myself have known Nick for eleven years. He has proved to be reliable, honest and very aware of the needs of his clients. We emigrated to Australia and found Nicholas almost immediately a very important and nerve racking time for us. He instantly made us feel at ease and patiently advised us on the financial road we needed to take to get the best out of our investment. How fortunate we have been he has guided us well giving thorough clear advise on borrowing, budgeting, cash flow and income, retirement and pensions plus responsible investment. We both recommend him highly."
