Kia Ora Paul,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to express my gratitude for your careful stewardship of my retirement funds. I’m so pleased that while I have been drawing down regular monthly payments for some time now my fund is actually worth more now than it was when I started the drawdowns.

I hope you and your family are well and that you are not finding life in the new regulatory climate too stressful! I’m enjoying my retirement more than ever – every day is a holiday and I’ve got plenty of time for hunting, fishing, golf and all the other good things in life!

Kindest regards

Bill, Havelock North

Paul is a great advisor and a credit to the industry. I get the impression that if all participants in the industry were like Paul, the need for regulation would be minimal.

We have worked with Michael for over 10 years. During this time he has been a trusted adviser and an immense help.  He has given us direction and we feel secure about our financial future. Michael offers a very personalised service, is well prepared, easy to deal with, and promptly follows up any actions agreed. We would strongly recommend Michael to anyone looking to appoint a financial adviser.

As new investors we decided to use Michael at FAHB as our financial advisor 7 years ago. His guidance and knowledge has been invaluable in giving us greater understanding of our investments. He makes you feel that no question is too silly to ask and in fact has always encouraged us to do so. This has meant we can rest assured on the decisions that are made.

We have also found FAHB really beneficial in our future planning – and once you understand your age and stage plus appetite for risk, you feel that you have some control over your financial planning and it is not just ‘a stab in the dark’ but actually a unique entity for you.

We are pleased with the continued good advice of our adviser Paul Sewell. Doing a financial plan has given us direction in meeting our short and long term goals.  We now have the appropriate  insurance cover in place and are on target to be financially secure.  We recommend Paul to friends and family.

Paul Sewell has constantly given good sound advice, my wife and I find that he is very pleasant to deal with.

Simon, Hastings

I have been very impressed in my dealings with Paul Sewell a very open, honest all round approachable representative. He has always been most courteous, professional and very open to my enquires.  He also made me feel very relaxed and was very helpful with his time.
