  • Dave Fisher has been of enormous help to me with managing my personal finances during the many years of my being totally committed to my professional work. It is always good to know that professionals are taking care of what you produce and are giving you security for the long run. The team has done an outstanding job with great personal service, good financial acumen and a clear and structured plan.

  • I earned what I own the good old-fashioned way – hard work bound by a strong values system. I learned from my mum to be generous. Because I saw my mum and gran run our household financially and operationally, I believe that women must take control of their own financial independence. I read a beautiful quote somewhere that went along the lines of “The true mark of humanity is not how much we give to those who have in abundance but how much we give to people who have little.

  • With careful investing and his knowledge of the markets, Dave performed miracles with our money. We could never have achieved it without him. This has been a journey of faith. We never doubted God’s grace and care in our lives. We never doubted Dave’s ability or his integrity. I stand amazed at how God has blessed us.

  • Like many people, I had been lazy about preparing for my retirement. Ten years ago, I started working with Dave to assist me to make provision for the years ahead. He has helped me to structure my various investments and to find the ideal balance between property, equities and other vehicles. We set targets and, with Dave’s help, I was able to build an appropriate portfolio, leaving me confident that I have provided sufficiently for my retirement. Without Dave’s supportive approach and guidance, I would not be where I am today.

  • I have developed an enormous amount of respect for Dave over the past thirteen years of doing business with him. His honest, sound advice regarding my income protection literally saved our livelihood and protected our future. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be medically boarded and not be able to practice dentistry anymore. And never would I have prepared financially for such a moment if I didn’t have Dave’s guidance. Thanks to Dave, our assets were protected. Through his humble and honest guidance, we get to live a beautiful life where I can provide for my family even without practicing my profession.

  • In working with Dave through the years, he must have said a thousand times, “Your money is not working for you. You should leverage your money better”. Thanks to him, I finally got it. I am extremely thankful for the fact that I was able to support both my parents financially as they grew older. This would not have been possible had I not developed my own thinking about money and gotten the best advice from my friend and wealth mentor over many years. Lesson learned: listen to Dave.

  • I met Dave Fisher in 2002. He has been my financial coach and great friend ever since. Dave coached me on wealth and money issues, and we put a financial plan together. In the beginning of our relationship, Dave must have been pulling his hair out at my ill-discipline. But he’s been patient and consistent, and, thanks largely to him, I am in a blessed financial situation today.
