“Darren has been my financial advisor since January 2013. During this time he has worked diligently to build a balanced plan to help me reach my long term financial goals. He is very experienced, and strives to ensure that he can offer the best, unbiased investment choices and advice for his clients. He has always shown great dedication to me as a client – happily ‘demystifying’ the different investment tools that were available to me as a first time investor to build a suitable portfolio, and maintaining regular contact to keep me updated and proposing changes as appropriate. I am very happy with the advice that I have received from Darren to date and am confident that he will continue to successfully support the management of my financial investments. I thoroughly recommend Darren to anyone who is looking for a skilled, professional advisor who will ensure their specific requirements and concerns are consistently addressed.”  Sarah Wilson – Global Account Manager – Schlumberger

“From my first meeting with Darren I could tell he was an experienced and seasoned professional, who would understand my needs and help me grow my savings. He helped me voice my concerns, covered the possible alternatives that could satisfy my expectations and put my decisions into a working plan. I valued his honesty, his commitment to me as a client and his ability to translate complex financial matters into concepts that became easy to understand and follow. The fact that he is a “neutral provider”, not subject to a specific range of products and able to choose within the best options available in the market increased my confidence in him. I am very happy to have engaged with him and look forward to continuing our business relationship as my objectives become closer and closer. Without a doubt I would recommend Darren to those professionals who care about their financial situation and seek professional, reliable and consistent advice.”  Alex Argueso – Global Sales Analytics & Reporting Manager – Equinix

“I have been a client of Darren’s since mid-2012. I have found Darren to be a good and trust-worthy advisor. He takes the time to understand my situation and needs before following up with recommendations which we discuss and implement together. He regularly maintains contact for review meetings and I have always found him to be available for discussion.” Mike Hall – Reservoir Engineering Co-ordinator – Dana Petroleum

“Darren is a very professional financial planner, helping and guiding myself to make the right choice as financial advisor. He really helped me to feel comfortable within the investment market and proved to be a trust-worthy advisor. I recommend his services with no doubt and I very much look forward to our upcoming meetings.” Jose Arjona Martinez – Test Lead for Asia Pacific Region – Heineken
