“ I have known Warwick for several years now, and I have always felt completely safe in the knowledge that my financial affairs are looked after with utmost care. His attention to all details, no matter how minor, are to be lauded. He is very approachable, and I never feel uncomfortable reaching out to him.
Any queries on my part are always followed up, and there is never any need for further phone calls or emails.
He takes the time to recognise my individual situation, my family situation and my risk appetite so that he can give fair advice based on this information.
I would recommend him to any family members or friends without hesitation.”
– Gerald, Doctor, Perth
“My wife and I needed to source a new financial advisor due to our existing advisor leaving the industry. We were very happy with the previous advisor, and we contacted Warwick based on the recommendation of our previous advisor. We are very happy that we did so.
It was apparent from our initial consultation that Warwick was exactly what we required in a financial advisor, and we decided to proceed with him developing and implementing a financial plan to achieve our long-term objectives.
The first thing that struck us was his professionalism, experience, integrity, diligence and that he is highly qualified in various areas of financial management, including retirement planning – which was our area of concern.
In our dealings with Warwick, over several meetings, we found him to be extremely competent, quick to understand our requirements, cheerful and respectful. The financial costs of the plan were clearly laid out, and there were no hidden or unexpected costs. We consider the cost to be reasonable and money well spent.
The meetings were stress-free, and open discussion of options, in a way that we could understand and follow. We believe that this methodology resulted in the best outcomes for us.
The plan that Warwick developed filled all our needs. He is goal driven, has an eye for detail, his patience in dealing with the numerous queries we raised was appreciated, and his implementation of the action points were done expeditiously, thoroughly and without any issues.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a personal financial advisor.”
