Paul Haggett

I have had the pleasure of knowing Douglas for several years and I am proud to advise that I was his first client in Nigeria, During my time with Douglas, I have found him to be very diligent and provides the support and security I need in my wealth planning,

A professional that will always go above and beyond to ensure that your pension and savings are secure and maximising their potential at all times, which to me were the main factors I needed to be addressed.

Having got to know Douglas over a long period it is a pleasure that I can recommend him with confidence as he provides that added security that I need but in a friendly and personalised way.

Douglas is not just a wealth manager to me. but a close friend who has advised and helped me through varied situations over the years, that has enabled me to concentrate on my business.

So if you need good professional advice for all investments, savings and pensions then arrange a meeting with Douglas and discuss all your needs and financial planning as you won’t just invest in your financial planning you will invest in a long lasting relationship and friendship.

Douglas has been very thorough in managing my pension funds. He knows his onions and has been very helpful in choosing appropriate portfolios.

Dayo Ajayi

Douglas is an excellent investment manager/advisor. I have only known him for about a year but I daresay he is a beacon of integrity and understands his business. He has tenacity and is not pushy and even for a financial specialist like me, I got something I liked from the various options of investments on offer.
I also admire his boldness to go into markets (and places) he has never been before and build up a solid network of clients to rival the locals
He is transparent with an eye for detail and explains everything with clarity. I am very comfortable being his client and look forward to continued success and transparency under his careful watch.
