“About 4 years ago I emailed you in desperation looking for someone, whom I trusted, to refer my husband and I onto a Perth based financial planner. We had had a couple of very average and fee focused financial planners who …. didn’t ever give us the impression that they cared much for our financial future… I didn’t know if I would actually get a response from you with a referral so was delighted when you referred us on to Momentum Planning. We have been seeing Amanda Jarosz, at Momentum ever since and are now happily sleeping at night knowing our financial futures are secure. We are very comfortable knowing that the people Momentum Planning really care about us and our future financial security. I would like to thank you sooo very much for this referral.” BG & KW
