Client Resources

The complexities of managing one’s money in the modern marketplace has led to a mushrooming demand for financial education and advice. It is no longer just about planning for retirement but a comprehensive plan to achieve short, medium term and long term financial goals.

Resource requirements have thus moved from just understanding the products on the market, to having a comprehensive knowledge of tax laws, inheritance laws, trust structures and intricacies and investment vehicles etc. In order to assist my clients achieve the most efficient plan for THEM, I thus work with a strong network of Professionals that I have hand picked to give me the sound advice required for your plans.


Two way communication is essential to maintaining an effective plan, however I always tailor my form of communication to my clients needs. Some clients prefer face to face communication, whilst others prefer electronic communication; some clients enjoy frequent discussions whilst other prefer to communicate only on a ‘need to know’ basis, and once again it comes down to really knowing and understanding my clients that I can ensure positive interaction.
