  • Brian and Kate
    We sold our property portfolio, and this was a big move for us. As we moved into a new diversified portfolio his work made us feel comfortable, and built trust on our part. He led us through a sensitive rebalancing and closer scrutiny of performance, and that pleased us while we came to grips with our changed circumstances. We can easily see that Mark took a good reading of our sensitivities.

  • Denise
    His understanding of my rather complex financial situation is exemplary, and he has helped me to re-construct a sound portfolio to assist me into my retirement. Lindsay has also helped me enormously with issues that are outside his job description but have a direct bearing on my financial stability. I have no hesitation in recommending his services with complete trust and I look forward to a continued financial relationship with him.

    For me, fundamental to the success of our relationship is trust – and it is essential that this be two-way. Mark understands every aspect of my financial position and my trust in the advice I am given is unequivocal. Annex Wealth works together with my accountant and my solicitor as a single team to ensure that I am receiving holistic advice. The willingness and the ability to work with multiple independent parties provides me with the comfort of knowing that my financial future is secure.

    We had a very honest review by a finance professional. He came to see us, probably spent most of the day with us – listening. There was a staggering amount of grunt work involved in setting it up – thanks Peter - almost refreshed our faith in humankind!
