"My wife and I have been clients of Craig Buntain for over 10 years. During this time Craig has always provided us with sound and timely advice designed for our future financial security. We have always been impressed by Craig’s insight into market conditions and while we appreciate that financial markets can be unpredictable, his recommendations have been worthwhile more often than not. We are now retired and ‘enjoying’ Craig’s earlier advice. We would recommend Craig and the team at CFL Financial Planning to anyone who wants a sound financial plan, particularly for the long term, and whether a professional or not."
