Ben ensures that we understand the issues, strategies and current trends in relation to our superannuation. He makes no presumptions about our levels of understanding but he makes sure we are fully cognisant of plans and goals in a way that ensures we have input and ultimate ownership. He is always clear, lucid and well briefed when he meets with us and he communicates clearly and with warmth and care. He always presents to us as a true gentleman of the utmost integrity who always has our best interests at heart. He is the professional and personal face of Stonehouse to us.
Ben has been very approachable and knowledgeable over the period of transfer from a former adviser. He has now been able to provide us a more concise and thorough plan to progress our super's and provided an honest appraisal of other financial products to derive the best combination and deliver value for money.
Ben’s communication is timely and precise. Very effective. Care and attention when needed. Genuinely interested in you.
Ben has been a solid and reliable financial advisor for my wife and I over the past 15 years, delivering clear, concise strategies and options to ensure our financial position is in the best shape to manage our needs. We have always found Ben to be articulate and clear in communicating financial information and advice. A stable financial base has been critical for us after my wife suffered a life changing event in 2008, Ben was and remains considerate to the financial needs this requires and advises accordingly. Bens professional manner and approach has ensured a trusting relationship with both Ben and Stonehouse.
Ben has always kept us fully informed with his advise and we are very confident in his knowledge.
