It was very easy for me to choose Provident as both my sisters were already very satisfied clients. Since then we have introduced a couple of friends who are also now clients. I have no expertise when it comes to investments etc., and was therefore very happy to be able to put it in the hands of someone who has, especially having seen how easy they had made the retirement process for my sister Jan.
With Provident handling all my retirement paperwork and with regular updates, all I have had to do was sit back and participate in the Enjoy Factor which has included my retirement trip which was a wonderful European river trip from Budapest to Amsterdam, followed by an overnight ferry trip to Britain. From London we took a train trip up to Scotland to visit our mother’s and grandmother’s birthplace. We then returned to London and did a 21-day trip around England Wales, Ireland and Scotland before once again returning to London and a final theatre visit before coming back to Australia.
In addition I have done trips with friends to Bali, Darwin and the Gold Coast where we had a magical hour long walk around Dreamworld with a beautiful tiger before it opened to the public. I am not sure where the next trip will be but there will definitely be more to come. In addition to the travelling, of course I am able to spend time with our dog Nui (short for Nic Naitanui), gardening and a lot of time playing lawn bowls. As you can see I am taking the Enjoy Factor very seriously! Many thanks to Paul and his team.
We would like to thank Greg Neill and his team for yet another great year for our portfolio. We enjoyed a holiday to the UK and Scotland. On the way home we took a five day stopover in Dubai, and celebrated our wedding anniversary. The hotel resort was fabulous, Peter and I were really spoilt.
We would also like to thank Greg for the advice he gave to our daughter and her husband, the next generation on the way to a good financial future. Thank you.
