Bob Windust has had 30 years experience helping clients make good sound financial decisions.
During all those 30 years, he has seen 3 damaging stock market crashes as well as 4 property boom and busts. I take pride in that,during those hard times, we have helped and guided a great many of our valued clients to a successful conclusion with most of those clients still with us today.
Along the way, as a IFA, Bob has learnt a great number of important financial lessons some of which include:
Sometimes it can be all about the timing, The time of buying or selling a property, timing on making investments, timing your retirement
As Bob says "Get the timing right and it easy to make a profit but get it all wrong and its a long old slog back"
Even after 30 years in financial services, I have learnt that "Not only is money not the most important thing in life its not even in the top 4or 5 of life's priorities!"
"Because you can still be a millionaire and not even have a penny in the bank"
