"Des has been very clear in his advice to me, enabling me to fully understand his recommendations, particularly in the area of superannuation. He has tailored my needs to suit my situation. I always feel that Des has my best interests at heart, as opposed to other financial advisers with whom I have dealt. Even during lockdown Des enabled me to have zoom meetings with him. I would recommend Des to any friends and family without hesitation, because of his care, attention to detail and knowledge of his product."

"Des was invaluable in assisting us to negotiate the tricky aftermath of the COVID impact on our investments, superannuation and cashflow. He took the time to set out scenarios and walk us through the likely consequences of the options open to us, and gave us clear, unambiguous and solid advice and guidance. He was frank and honest in answering all our queries, and was very knowledgeable. We felt that the advice was right for our needs and would recommend Des without reservation."
