"John has been advising me for a couple of years now and assisted me in transferring my pension rights. I found John more pro-active than some of his counterparts I had come across in the UK. Time will tell whether the investments will do well or not.I am generally cynical about people in the retail financial services and the nature of advice they give. Greed and ignorance, spiced with a big doze of laziness, are their general hallmarks. John appears more straightforward and is willing to answer questions head-on, or find answers to them relatively quickly, rather than waffle and evade. I appreciate that quality in an adviser."
- Borzou Aram , Chartered Accountant / CFO - Samco Shipholding Pte Ltd

"My wife and I met John in the latter half of 2013 and found him to be extremely personable in nature. His knowledge of the industry is comprehensive and he can convey information in a simple and understandable manner, without being overwhelming or intimidating. He is up front and transparent and we found his level of service to be exceptional. Having had several discussions with other Financial Advisers prior to John, we can safely say that John made us feel the most comfortable. This is why we decided go with John. To date, his on-going support has been second to none and there is no shortage of follow up information and assistance. We would not hesitate to recommend John's services to anyone who is considering making some investment choices for their long term future."
