I was delighted to have the opportunity to invest responsibly through Jonathan's interest in this area.
I have been a client of Rise Financial since its inception, and was associated with Jonathan and his team for a number of years before that. I have always found them to be professional, friendly and helpful. Jonathan is very thorough and has extensive knowledge of the field of finance and investment. I was delighted to have the opportunity also to invest responsibly through Jonathan's interest in this area.

Jonathan keeps up to date with this growing market and therefore is able to keep us informed of the increasing opportunities to participate in responsible investments.
We chose to invest for our retirement with Rise Financial Ltd for many reasons and two in particular. Firstly, we have been salaried employees all our working lives so have not developed any useful knowledge about investments. Jonathan really understands needs for investment and therefore is very good at offering information and options, listening to our retirement plans and assisting us in making appropriate decisions. Secondly, we are particularly interested in ensuring our investments are used to assist the healthy, ethical developments within New Zealand and beyond. Jonathan keeps up to date with this growing market and therefore is able to keep us informed of the increasing opportunities to participate in responsible investments.
