What Our Clients Say…
I can’t express my gratitude enough
When my husband retired…a friend of his recommended we see John Walker for some guidance.
John worked with us to develop our retirement plan. It felt like there were three of us working as a team.
When my husband took ill two years ago, I didn’t know who to turn to, so we approached John. John was able to simplify the complex rules around Aged Care in a series of simple, easy to follow steps.
For example, one of those steps was simply to contact an Aged Care facility close to home and arrange for a period of respite care for my husband. This was such a huge relief for me. I felt as if I had got my life back again.
I can’t express enough, my gratitude for John and the team in his office. They helped in filling in, what seemed to be, a monstrous amount of paperwork for Centrelink and Care facilities, as well as liaise with our accountant.
I’m ever so grateful for John’s help, especially during these recent times and so pleased that he is there whenever I need any questions answered.
John truly understands our needs!
John was recommended to us by two dear friends.
We had been with a financial advisor at another well respected institution, but felt we couldn’t really relate to them, or them to us.
We needed someone who understood that we really had retired and needed to grow and protect the funds we already had. Our money had to last but still be accessible enough to allow us to travel and enjoy our retired years.
When we met John, we immediately felt at ease. His understanding of strategies and Government benefits has worked well for us.
We feel he truly understands our needs and lifestyle dreams and over the years we’ve had many conversations which resulted in achieving our goals.
With confidence we recommend the services of John and his team at RI Circular Quay.

Your personal approach makes you stand out
A big “thank you” John for the good work you keep doing for your clients. I think you are a very competent financial planner and during these difficult economic times you send us information, keeping us up to date and offer advice when we don’t even ask.
The one thing that makes you “stand out from the rest” is your very personal approach and caring nature. At no time does one feel that your main aim is to make money – you seem to be there just to get the best result for us. I would recommend your service to anyone, without hesitation.
My son (a chartered accountant) has met you, listened to your advice and agrees with all I am saying. He advises me to keep on as your client because you go beyond what is expected, for no extra cost. Let’s say “you go the extra mile” – very rare today.
Thank you and best wishes for the future.
You’re in good company…
