His favourite quote is:
You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough
“Ben has been a very hands-on financial advisor for the last few years. He has a great quality in helping me make sense of financial situations that can affect my portfolio despite me not being very finance-savvy! He has a great understanding of the markets and the various products and services DeVere Group can offer and I’ve appreciated his help and advice.” – Ahmad K.
“Ben advised me over couple of years while I based in Dubai, working out some of my family key financial investment decisions. There two words that I could use to describe Ben, Long-term and Candor. He very professional and his service is truly first-class, he is very patient, giving you space to take time to reflect upon the advice information provided and to make your decision, while at the same time being direct and letting you know when he felt you were wasting his time. I was absolutely delighted and came to greatly trust and respect him. It is really reassuring to work with a financial adviser who is truly interested in your needs, is ethical and is not interested in only making as much money for themselves as they could. I had never had this kind of experience before with financial advisers, on the contrary, I felt that most of the advisors that I had interacted with were only interested to sell an investment product and as a result defaulted to not trusting them at all. I have no doubt in recommending Ben to any of my friends and family.” – John W.
