"We are extremely happy with the service provided by Bridges but especially Paul. We have no worries at all and are very confident and relaxed with our finacial strategy and that of my mother. In fact apart from a quick read of advice given to us and a quick read of what is happening in the finacial world we do not worry about our investments at all. Love the peace of mind we have."
