Happy Customer

4 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 12, 2017

Our adviser, Pravesh Daya has only recently joined the company, but has worked very hard to identify our needs, provide advice and implementation assistance, as we move from employment into retirement . We highly recommend him!. In the past, Anne Street Partners have had some ongoing staff and organisational changes and this has meant some delays in responding to our needs (so only get 4 stars rating). This situation has improved recently. Overall we have no hesitation in recommending Pravesh

Tracy has been looking after our financial and retirement funds for the last 5 years. When Tracy moved to Anne Street Partners we immediately transferred with her. We have been well looked after by Anne Street Partners and Tracy over the last 2 years and feel confident with their recommendations. We highly recommend both Tracy Dyer and Anne Street Partners to anyone needing Investment or Financial advice.

Good, honest advice that has kept us informed.

We have used Anne St Partners for the last 4 years and have been happy with the service provided so far. Despite a slight hiccup that resulted in our first adviser moving on due to company downsizing, we have valued our new advisor, Jack and his guidance and advice since the beginning of 2015. We will continue to utilise the service in the future.

Give them a go

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 09, 2017

We have been advised by Anne Street Partners (formerly WPS Financial Group) since about September 2005. It is sometimes hard to decide whether we are better off financially or not - only retirement will tell. We have had a number of advisors over the years who have always been helpful, They have sold us investment properties, Wills, and set up a SMSF for us - the downside of all of this is more paperwork for me. I have now come to expect that an attempt to sell a service to me will be made when I visit. In return we have a team who are always h appy to help if we have a financial matter to discuss. As with any service there are positives and negatives that come out of dealings with a company, if we need to meet it can happen on a Saturday morning and our current advisor (MJ) was very good and encouraging when we came into our annual appointment two days after my partner was asked to step down from his role at work and took a significant pay cut in the process - needless to say there were tissues on the table. The negative things in our experience are not deal breakers. I would recommend you consider Anne Street Partners if you are in the market for some financial advise.

Overall Review of ASP

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 09, 2017

We engaged with Anne Street Partners on recommendation about 3-4years ago as my wife & I were unconvinced that Super alone was going to cut it when we retire. We have had some hiccups along the way but by & large have very much appreciated the advice in setting up our financial goals & building a solid foundation for our retirement. Hopefully over the coming years we will start to see some real benefit to our decisions. Setting up an SMSF is an extraordinarily complex process & one which we found difficult to understand but the team at ASP have always been very patient & helpful with us & always very approachable. I feel that ASP have certainly taken on the bulk of the legwork which makes our lives much easier from the ease of signing documents, to the ease of submitting our SMSF tax return. We have certainly gained a lot of knowledge throughout this process & we're very glad we made the decision to engage ASP to help secure our future.

We have been with Anne St Partners for a number of years now, we have purchased an investment property through them and it's made us think more about how we go about our finances. It's good to know that we have people there who have 'our back' and give great guidance when we need it, It's certainly given us things to think about that maybe we wouldn't have if we weren't with Anne St.

Mixed experience, excellent broker

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 20, 2016

I had been with ASP for a few years and was happy until there was some mix up in communication from my then case manager, which could have had astronomically bad outcomes for me. However my new broker Toni Lamb worked tirelessly to come up with solutions and ended up helping me to a result that was better than planned. Overall the experience was extremely stressful but Toni was really fantastic and I'm very grateful for her work

Prefessional Service and Great Product Knowledge

Jack Oineza from Anne Street Partners has been a great help in assisting us with our financial and lifestyle planning simplifying our Superannuation and insurance needs. He has even gone to the trouble of visiting us at home a time that suits us(even though his Sat-Nav has tried its best to make him late). Mustafa Haddad is currently reviewing our personal, home and investment loans and is looking to save us a considerable amount of money. I have no hesitation to recommend Anne Street Partners to my friends and family.

Questions & Answers

After i pay them off by your halp ,,is my name going to be clear again ?

Aram rashet asked on Jan 17, 2017

Answer this

Hi Aram,

Apologies - what is this in reference to?

Kind regards
Brent

I having been reading through the reviews for Anne St partners ( Financial Planners ) and have found a lot reflect my own experience of basically bad advice. However its incredible how many people who ' have been with Anne St for many years now " all of a sudden decide to write an over the top positive review. Is there any way of verifying that these are real people and not just company from the company itself ?

Brisbane asked on Mar 16, 2015

Answer this

Hi there Brisbane

Firstly, I apologise if you haven't received a positive experience from us. I'd certainly like to have the opportunity to put this right and you can contact me personally on info@annestreetpartners.com.au - attention Brent. I'd actually like to look into any concerns you have.

In terms of posting reviews, every adviser at Anne Street Partners is encouraged to ask for feedback after each appointment as it gives all of the executive team an unbiased look at our service offering. We certainly monitor each review and where the reviewer leaves some details we try to address any concerns on a one-to-one basis. Some reviewers prefer to use a pseudonym, and this can lead to identification issues, so we try to reach out to them using the site. Obviously we love to receive glowing reviews, but we know that with many changes within the organisation this won't be the case every time, so we encourage a realistic view each and every time.

Brent - Anne Street Partners Marketing

I'm real - I just gave an honest answer to the request for a review

Yep, my review is real.

2 things:

1. any investment has some form of inherent risk. Thinking you'll make fifty-hundred percent return in two weeks on a property is ludicrous, its the real world, not blocyard blitz.
2. you do actually need to do some work and thinking for yourself. Do you think if they had some magic formula for making money appear from thin air, that they would be working?
