“Our Financial Adviser Keren Bobker has been excellent and I would highly recommend her. Her no nonsense, honest and unbiased advice is refreshing and actually very helpful to cut through the noise that can often be very hard to see through and actually make decisions. Her style is to advice, educate and then help prioritize, and it works very effectively. I’ve known for a while that I needed to sort my finances and been approached and met a number of advisers, most however, didn’t inspire my confidence or decision making like Keren. She also made herself available to support decision making at my convenience. 10/10!” – Alex C.
