“My wife and I met Andrew when we arrived in Dubai in 2012. We were approached by a number of Financial Advisors and their associated companies at the time, but Andrew stood as a result of his friendly and approachable personality, as well as his honesty, integrity and professionalism. We have never felt pressurized into taking any of Andrews recommendations, only a sense of trust. Whereas Andrew started out as our Financial Advisor, I would now consider him also a friend, who I have recommended to other work colleagues without hesitation.”
