“For the past approximately fifteen years Craig Kiggen has very efficiently managed the personal local and foreign investments of my wife and myself, plus those of our family trust that he was instrumental in establishing . In addition, from time to time he has guided also our son and daughter regarding their respective family financial affairs. In performance of this Craig and his team have always liaised closely with ourselves and with our tax accountants, with whom a long-standing close relationship exists. I have no hesitation in recommending Craig Kiggen and his team to anybody or entity needful of the range of professional services provided by Consolidated.”

“I have found the financial advisors to be most helpful and willing to provide information whenever needed and have enjoyed reading the various articles sent to me. My phone calls have been promptly returned and email enquiries professionally attended to. Investment information is “mind boggling” for the layman but full disclosure is given of all investments made on my behalf. My portfolio is managed by Irene van der Merwe with whom I have a good working relationship – I have found her to be patient in explaining things and always ready to help. It is a pleasure dealing with Consolidated.”

“Last year I was informed that my then advisor, Margaret, was emigrating and Irene vd Merwe would take over as my new financial advisor. I found her very friendly and helpful right from the start and also feel very comfortable with her in our meetings. She has so much patience in explaining details and I can contact her any time of the day, and would get feedback or answers within the hour sometimes. She is passionate about her work and will always go the extra mile in getting your business sorted and done.”

“The quality of service from CFP is above and beyond what you would get from a big brand name firm. They have a personal connection to their clients that you don't get elsewhere and work with your personal situation and plans to make your finances work for you. CFP also became my mother's financial advisors when my father passed and were so helpful in assisting us with sorting out the estate and setting up investments to provide an annuity income to supplement her pension.”

It is so assuring not to have to worry about our money and to know it is in safe hands.”
