George has been my financial adviser since 2015. I have a financial services background and have met many advisers, but George is the only one I trust; he always has my interests front and centre. My circumstances have evolved considerably over the years and George has always been able to ensure the best outcomes for me at each stage. This latest stage has been the most crucial and George has been able to achieve far greater results than I could have anticipated. I have always been impressed by the breadth of George’s knowledge and how he keeps across the ever evolving landscape – but George is not just technically brilliant, he has become a friend because he takes the time to really listen and understand. I highly recommend George – and do so to my family and friends.
Vanessa, Senior Business Banker
George Apostolou has been my financial advisor for a decade. In that time, I have been George’s client as he has moved from the financial planning arm of one of the major banks, through to a large financial services organization.
I was impressed at our first meeting by the importance he placed upon understanding and managing risk versus reward in any financial decision, as to my mind this is the fundamental aspect of any investment strategy.
George’s performance as my financial advisor since that time has confirmed that he is diligent and thoughtful in his approach to my portfolio, prepared to put the client’s interest first if that was the best option in that situation. He has demonstrated poise in situations of market turmoil, remaining focused and considered.
He is able to provide pragmatic and distilled advice based upon the large amount of information he keeps abreast of, and is equally happy to provide detailed research on a given area if required.
I can give no better recommendation to George than my unhesitating decision to follow him as had moved between his different places of practice.
