"Nigel has advised and guided us through the Superannuation maze over the past 4 years. His advice is current and extensive in relation to our situation and we have every confidence in his expertise. My wife and I always leave our annual meetings with clarity and a sense of peace knowing our Super is being managed with care by Nigel.

"We found Nigel's expertise regarding the specific options relevant to our superannuation very helpful when deciding what path we would take. He was able to clearly articulate all options and so we felt informed and supported when making one of the biggest decisions of our lives. Nigel was recommended to us by several of my previous work colleagues who faced similar circumstances and I too will now recommend Nigel. Overall he is professional, patient, knowledgeable and understands the stress these decisions create."

"Nigel has been looking after my allocated pension account for the past 4 or 5 years. During that time he has been very clear in his advice and explanations of options available to me. He is always very well prepared when we meet to discuss the progress of my account and our meetings have all been very positive experiences, at least for me. I am very confident in his ability to provide me with the best advice for my situation."
