Testimonials

Southbank Financial Planning Client Testimonial.
by Peter McRae | Philippines | Jul 26th 2014

I am a retired businessman now living in the Philippines.  I was looking for a dependable financial adviser to handle my financial affairs. I approached Hillross following a recommendation and from the first meeting that I had with Paul, Warren and Wendy I was sure that this was the company that would take care of me.
