John has over 10 years in the financial services industry. John is highly educated, having obtained a Bachelor of Business (Economics & Finance), Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning and a Graduate Diploma in Financial Services. His diverse career includes experience working with some of Australia’s leading investment and financial institutions. John is also a Certified Financial Planner® with the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA).
As we're currently in the USA we first spoke with John via a video call, he immediately put us at ease and made us comfortable answering the various questions we had for him. There was no pressure from him to commit there and then. After several other introductory calls with other advisers at other firms it was clear that John is very knowledgeable and would be able to help us. Since then we've spoken to John on a regular basis regarding our move back to Australia. He put in place a comprehensive plan for us and has executed that plan. There have been several changes made due to changes in our circumstances and John is quick to adapt and ensure we're still doing what's best. He has always been available at short notice for calls and is very responsive to questions via email. What we appreciate about John's approach is that he is clearly knowledgeable in his areas of expertise but also acknowledges when something is outside of his scope, and then makes introductions to his broad network, never leaving you feeling like you're on your own to solve problems. We've been working with John for almost 12 months now and have nothing but positive things to say, he's made us feel comfortable and we now know we have a solid plan in place to get us to where we want to be.
Firstly, John Versace is an absolute delight to deal with. He is ALWAYS prompt with responses, exceptional with follow through, keeps me updated and explains things thoroughly so that I understand - and - all with a wonderful attitude. Secondly, and more importantly, he provides excellent investment advice and tax strategies that address my extremely complex cross border issues between USA and Australia. He is very knowledgeable and has a strong team that supports him. I would not hesitate to recommend him for anyone that is dealing with the horrific US/Oz SMSF issues (or any other cross border issues)..
John Is incredibly intelligent across financial planning and has always guided my family’s finances in right direction. We always feel confident and secure after speaking with John. We know we’re in good hands with John.
We started working with John this year as we needed help managing our complex financial situation. We are Australians living abroad in the US and John was recommended to us by another expat family. Our experience with John has been extremely positive; from our first conversation, John took the time to understand our entire situation so he could provide tailored guidance. John is helping us navigate everything from international tax, investments, asset management and budgeting and his help has been crucial to getting us to the point where we are at today. John has a very friendly demeanor and is always available to answer any questions we have. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a Financial Adviser, but in particular for expats living abroad.
John has given me honest and strategic advice with regards to my portfolio. He is in my opinion very professional, honest and consultative with his advice and recommendations. John treats you as a person not a number and is always available to chat. John always leaves me feeling I have made the correct decision. Peter H
