Les has been our adviser for many years. Recently my partner has had to go into care as a result of dementia and this process has been extremely confusing and very difficult to understand. Les assisted us every step of the way and helped us understand the process, including the costings and the way that the system works so that we could get Len a great outcome in a great location. He is now under care and we have had our pension sorted and that has now increased and we have made sure that he is now receiving the best of care. Les was very helpful through the entire process and really cared about us and our needs without Les, we would have been lost . I have no hesitation in recommending Les to anyone that needs a financial adviser that really cares about his clients and understands how people feel in times of stress.
We are extremely happy with Les always there to help no matter how big or small the situation is we can ring Les anytime and he always has time for us Les knowledge is implacable. I must also point out, he has a lot of patience with us, as we are not computer savvy. Les has taught me a lot. Cheers
Les helped us through pensions and superannuation and most important liaising with Centrelink. This included private pensions in England and other employment related pensions from England. I felt that we could get in touch with him when things occurred that we were not sure how to deal with and he or one of his team would help. Above all a sense of humour helped We would recommend him to friends
Les is an outstanding advisor who brings not only knowledge but compassion and caring to his service. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great advisor to take care of their financial needs long term.
Les has been my financial advisor for many years. I have total confidence in the advice he gives me; he always explains things clearly and makes sure we understand how it is in my best interests. He ensures that we totally understand his advice, which is given in a clear and easily understandable manner. He is always available to talk with me when I need him. Recently we found an issue caused by the new government legislation which cancelled my insurance without me knowing. Les spent several hours going back and forth, advocating our case. Eventually his persistence got the policy put back into “force:”, meaning I was covered again. This is an example of how Les goes that extra step every time to make sure we are looked after.
