"We both have had Vince help us to transition into retirement. He has been very clear with his strategy and to this date we have been very happy with the outcomes. He is clear when explaining our situation where we should be in the short term as well as what we are expecting for the long term. He is very attuned to our needs."

"I have been a client of Vince looking after my retirement superannuation for a number of years now and he has always given me sound advice and has always made himself available when ever the occasion has arisen. I once read in a financial book 'that any financial investment that you are involved in you should be able to sleep at night or you otherwise you are in the wrong thing!' Having Vince working for and with me - I sleep very well at night - thank you."

"Vince has always been the calm voice during turbulent times, whether in my own finances, in my industry or globally. He is consistently measured, factual and objective. I never feel pressured or that he is pushing for one particular strategy. With superannuation and insurance so steeped in T&Cs and volumes of pages, he has navigated me to the 'plain English' translation of what it actually means. A very highly recommended professional."

"I've been a client of Vince’s for over seven years and in that time Vince has become a trusted adviser and friend. He always answers my questions no matter what time of day with compassion and advice free from emotion (as I’m a very emotional person). Vince is the guiding light that I have needed all this time. He is patient, wise and always giving you advice as a trusted friend as well as adviser."
