Feedback of Clients

Michael has provided us with excellent advice from our initial investments. One of his excellent skills is no variance in that advice over the full period he has handled our superannuation and other requirements. We have never had any doubt in recommending him to our family and friends.

Jonathan and the staff of GDA have provided us a most welcome, standard of excellence in managing our financial affairs . Their attention to detail, constructive advice and ongoing support has been of great value. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them for years to come.

I find Michael to be very professional. Always helpful. Michael’s knowledge and ongoing advice is excellent. My transition to retirement has been made easier with Michael’s assistance.

Michael has a relaxed and pleasant demeanour at reviews. He is knowledgeable, thorough, responds promptly to any queries and whilst prepared to venture a future opinion is cautious. I have full confidence in him as my advisor.
