"Christoph has twice helped me to make difficult decisions regarding sale of properties I owned. His helpful feedback and observations were of great assistance. His assistance was a great support for my decision making. The support he provided made me very happy that I was receiving value for money. His service was above what I believe other standard financial advisors would provide."

"I can highly recommend Christoph Schnelle as a personal financial advisor. I was fortunate to first have his help some years ago when I was in a difficult financial situation- I have never had a very comfortable relationship with money mostly because of accrued debt while training as a doctor. I always found Christoph to provide excellent honest advice to me and always in a timely manner. I find Christoph to have this amazing clarity of mind which is sharp and perceptive- and his calm reassuring demeanour saw me through some complex times. I feel secure in his advise re my insurances and managing my superannuation. As I graduallly surface out of the debt situation, I will be sure to continue working with Christoph to see how I can increase my financial freedom and knowledge over time . Investments will be the next step. Please know that Christoph works with the utmost integrity and care for the individuals needs of his clients. His ethical approach and sound financial advice are lovely qualities which I admire indeed."

"Christoph Schnelle has assisted me find the best insurance policies for my needs and has also been able to assist me with adjusting levels of cover that are now required due to my business expanding significantly since the initial policies were selected 5 years ago. Christoph has a great depth of knowledge of the insurance industry and a level of understanding of potential situations that would necessitate financial assistance through insurance in the event of accident illness or disease. I feel very confident that Christoph has my interest as prime consideration in the advice that he offers."

"Christoph has always been extremely responsive to all my questions, he takes care to understand the particular circumstances before offering his advice. I have absolute trust and confidence in his advice, in terms of quality and also that he always has my best interests at heart. Unfortunately, it's not common to feel that someone is always working for you 100%, without any self interest for themselves."
