"I have persevered over the years dealing with a number of financial planners with varying results. Chris has been a delight to deal with and the advice he has given me has had immediate positive results. He has an incredible ability to communicate in a way I can understand and did a lot of listening to start with to fully understand what I was looking for.
In short, he helped me restructure my home loan, saving me 0.45% an immediate savings! Additionally, we restructured my superannuation to maximise my investment portfolio mix and ease of use. All of this came with a mobile online financial platform giving me access to all of my accounts, investments and online storage for other personal and sensitive documents.
I think the fact that Chris spent the first half of his career working in the coal face of financial markets has given him perspective as to what time poor professionals are looking for. Coupled with a genuine and open approach to providing financial advice, is exactly what I am looking for in a financial planner."
"Through his knowledge of the market and by getting the timing right, Chris was able to get us an AMAZING mortgage rate, locked in for 3 years. He also helped me with a financial strategy that will help us well into the future. He reviewed my superannuation situation and implemented changes (higher growth, better fund) and helped me devise a medium-term investment strategy. He was at all times upfront and impeccably ethical. Thanks Chris."
"I would highly recommend Chris if you need to make the most out of your money and ensure you have a good plan for your retirement. He sorted out my financial plan and is always available to provide me and my wife the support and advice to make well informed decisions for our super and investments. Ultimately he has removed the confusion we had on how to make the best with our money and be in control."
"Thinking of myself as financially literate, Chris’ astute counsel has been a valuable benefit to me. His acumen has given me insight into looking at my financial situation differently, saving me $$$$ in lost returns. With a manner that is very approachable, measured and not at all pushy, Chris is a Financial Adviser who I trust and look forward to working with in the many years ahead."
