I have been dealing with Shane and the company for nearly 20 years now. Every year I have an appointment with Shane where he takes me through my Super in an easy to understand format. The staff there treat you like a friend every time you walk through the door. I highly recommend the company.
I have nothing but praise for the staff at Steel City Financial Planners. Each time I have spoken to them about problems I have encountered they have been so friendly, knowledgeable and understanding, especially over the past 18 months since my wife’s passing. They have filled out for me very complex forms for superannuation, life insurance claim and Centrelink which has saved me so much worry I feel so relaxed knowing my life savings are in such safe hands.
Since being with Mr Shane Finlay at Steel City, he has overseen our financial situation, steering us through our mortgage till it was paid out and now he is again giving us direction through our retirement years. Both Karen and myself have the utmost trust in Shane, as if it wasn't for him we would have been in extreme financial difficulty.
We also have found the other Staff members extremely helpful when we needed help, usually via the phone, at times we have spoken to Belinda and Leea and find them very helpful and professional.
Shane and his team are very professional with knowledge in all aspects of our needs for now and in the future. Shane and the team are friendly and approachable and make us feel comfortable with great communication with any changes in our needs.
Shane is amazing to Deal with and we appreciate his time, knowledge, interest in our future and enthusiasm.
