We appointed Lee-Anne as our Financial Adviser in 2012 and she proceeded to set out a retirement strategy for us. As time progressed we developed a good business relationship as Lee-Anne had a good understanding of our retirement needs and we had faith in her advice and knowledge. We have regular discussions throughout the year and receive a phone call just to see how we are travelling.
Ten years have passed and we are very pleased with our decision in appointing Lee-Anne as our Financial Adviser. Her skills and knowledge have given us a happy retirement life and we recommend her to anyone who is in the same lifestyle position as us.
