Director Delivery Management Du, Dubai
I was introduced to Colin by one of my work colleagues and even though I was reluctant at first, as I'd had a bad financial experience previously in the Middle East, but I soon realised that Colin had my best interests at heart. I've been happy with the performance of my portfolio which continues to grow and I'm always kept informed.
Planning Engineer Brunel, Dubai
Colin has been extremely helpful in providing sound financial advice. He has helped me with finding the optimal financial solutions (in a jurisdiction that offers no pension). He is very client driven follows up regularly and is always up to date with what's going on in the markets.
