We have known Jimmy for nearly 10 years and during this time we have been very impressed with his competence not only with his wise and skilful placement of our money but also his very professional organisation. He regularly gets in touch with us and also visit us several times a year to review our situation and to make suggestions on any improvements he thinks he can make. He have a proactive approach to his work and, after each visit, he later follow up and forward a very detailed report explaining the current situation. We have been more than pleased with Jimmy’s individual service and would highly recommend him.

I have been with Jimmy for over 25 years now and he has helped me to restructure my super retirement fund when is required. I am very please with his services and happy that each year my portfolio continues to grow and earn more than what I have drawn to fund my retirement lifestyle. It’s a great feeling and a peace of mind as Jimmy is keeping my portfolio up to date with changing market conditions each year. I am enjoying my retirement.

With running a dental clinic, taking care of kids and elderly parents, we were always too busy to plan our investments. We managed to invest in some properties and did not have much understanding of superannuation laws and how to make it grow. We had bought investment plans from AMP for our kids through Jimmy when the kids were young. We trusted him and he has given us excellent advice in the last 30 years. He also helped us set up our self-managed super fund and we were able to semi-retired at 55 with financial security for our retirement. Jimmy is very patient in explaining to us our queries and concerns about investments, he is dedicated to his job and we always feel we can trust him to give us the best advice. We have not used a financial planner before but we believe Amicus Financial planning gave and will continue to give us excellent service. We do not hesitate to recommend him to our family and friends.
Thanks Jimmy and your team for everything.

Thirteen years ago (2006) when I decided that I had to get my Finances in order I was introduced to Jimmy Son who was running AMICUS and have not looked back since.On my first visit I found Jimmy to be very patience and clearly explained how he will help managed my money. He makes sure I clearly understood everything and was happy to answer repeated questions in matters that I did not fully understand. He makes me feel very comfortable as time does not seem to matter to him during our meeting.

Throughout the years Jimmy has given me great advice and goes out of his way to help me in matters that need urgent attention. My Finances has been very healthy under his care so much so that I was happy to introduce my colleague Ms Wanda F. when she had to look for a Financial Adviser. I believe she too is very happy with Jimmy that she recommended her sister and one of our good friends Jenny L.

We started to engage Jimmy Son as our adviser in 2017. He always kindly and patiently explains to us everything we need to know about our retirement. He helped us create an investment portfolio. I am very satisfied with the returns of this portfolio in the past year.

In 2019, I decided to invest more funds to create another investment portfolio. With Jimmy and his team managing our finances, we are able to enjoy our retirement with a peace of mind.

Jimmy and his team has provided excellent customer service during the whole process, especially the after-sales service as well.

I had no ideas about my superannuation before I met Jimmy. I bought the product from a different company due to my previous work contract. However, Jimmy and his team gave me and my husband a very good lesson on superannuation and plan for our retirement. Hence, we took their recommendations to maximise our benefits.

His personal assistant May always reply to our email quickly, and very patient in answering questions and explain the details to us which we feel very comfortable.
