Kens advice has proved to be sound and in a difficult financial market has guided us well with our investments. He is always contactable 7 days a week and if not soon returns the call.
Ken took over our portfolio at a time when I was extremely disappointed in the level of service, advice and reporting we received from Ethinvest. I suspect I was noted as a 'difficult' client. Accordingly, Ken and I had some initial difficulties but, over time, Ken showed he was quite capable and able to provide the level of service and advice that I believed we were entitled to. I also suspect that Ken came to realise my initial complaints were more than likely justified. Since those early days, Ken has been on board with our trustees and they appreciate Ken's insight into our portfolio and generally adopt his buy/ sell/ keep recommendations.
Ken always made himself available and was responsive to issues or questions raised. He explained any recommendations succinctly and clearly. He always appeared knowledgeable and balanced. Plus he was also very personable.
Ken gave us sound advice on investments with good security and returns .He was always available when required.
Ken advised and helped our family get started in ethical investing. He is knowledgeable, articulate, and provides excellent customer service. He consistently responds to our questions and informs us of important industry updates in a timely manner. We've been satisfied clients of Ken's for years.
