"My Super was in a mess and totally under performing. After going to see Ben, I now feel completely confident that it is in the best possible fund and tailored to my needs. Everything was laid out to me and explained in an easy to understand way and I am always kept well informed of any changes or progress. I would highly recommend Ben D'Souza ( and have) to anyone seeking financial guidance."

"I was advised to make an appointment with Ben by a close friend. I had no intentions or concerns to invest or take out insurances until Ben explained it to me in simple terms. Although I am not the biggest investor, Ben was able to create a portfolio for me to suit my lifestyle and needs. He is very good communicator and keeps me posted throughout the whole process. I highly recommend any inexperienced or experienced investor to go see Ben."

"I'm very new at this area of getting my super in a better state and getting ready for life down the track, my Wife and I first meeting with Ben was really relaxing and positive Ben was very helpful in explaining things in a way that we both could understand and not once did he push us in any direction that we didn't understand he gave us plenty of options to look at and again explained them really well. Its only early in our journey with Ben but he has been a big help thanks Ben."

"Since we first met Ben we have been impressed with his knowledge, his undying helpfulness, wonderful attitude. We would always feel confident recommending him to friends and family. if we ever win Lotto, he is the one person we would go to for advice and investment assistance. He never hesitates when we ask to meet at our home instead of the office, which for us is a godsend. We cannot speak highly enough of him."
