Usman has been incredible with my finances. I had my first consultation with him in 2014 and he continues to manage my portfolio. He's helped me understand my budget, rethink my position in relation to debt and savings, and honestly helped me put the entire picture straight. He has been exceptionally understanding and supportive through times of income uncertainty through Covid, and ensured my savings have continued to grow no matter what the outside circumstances. I have watched him help so many people in our expat community.

Bronwyn MacRitchie

Talib Yaseen O.B.E.

Usman has been very helpful in meeting my requirements for information and updates. When he started to work with me back in 2017, I needed to clean up a lot of things and consolidate numerous accounts which Usman took care of and really helped me to improve my investments. He has really been very good and easy to work with and responsive.
