“As a result of Chris’ advice I feel secure both in my current situation and well prepared for whatever the future may hold. His financial examination technique is thorough but non confrontational, and doesn’t require anaesthetic. Chris always makes me feel confident that everything has been looked at, and he is tireless in working for my best interests.”
Dr Jeremy Cohen
“As a private client of Highland Financial, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a few words about my experience in dealing with your company and the great service you have offered.
You have been thorough in all advice provided and I believe you have gone beyond the normal call of duty to get the best results and solutions on my behalf.
I would happily recommend your services to any client or company that is looking for sound financial advice and comprehensive financial planning.”
Greg – Managing Director
“Setting up a self managed superannuation fund …. surely it cannot be that daunting ? Just wait until you start getting into the obligations and requirements of a trustee and then you can quickly become lost on your own.
I was very fortunate to have Chris Wren and his team from Highland Financial ease the path for me. Chris conducted an assessment of my financial situation and assisted me in weighing up the benefits and obligations of running a SMSF. He then arranged the establishment of the SMSF with the right structure and ensured all regulatory obligations were satisfied resulting in a compliant fund.
Chris has provided ongoing guidance that has been beneficial and supportive in the operation and investment objectives of the fund. With Highland ‘s support, I know our ongoing trustee obligations are well managed. I readily recommend you consider engaging Highland Financial to assist you with establishment and/or operation of an existing self managed superannuation fund.”
