"Thanks for helping sort out my Income Protection policy and the claim (Which occurred after 4 months of having it). If I’d kept my original ‘over the phone’ policy I would have been paid half as much and the policy wasn’t really right for me. As I am self employed, I don’t have any sick leave or holiday leave. When I hurt my back, I was initially told by the doctors I wouldn’t be able to work as a plasterer again! Ben told me that the policy he’d recommended and set up for me four months prior would cover me until I turned 65 if I couldn’t go back to work.
They organised the claim and followed up with the insurance company to make sure I had money as quickly as possible. Luckily it wasn’t as bad as I thought, and I could go back to work . The policy proved invaluable and relieved me of the stress of paying bills, rent, medical bills etc! I’d recommend Vettler Financial Services to anyone."
"I had a serious work accident in January 2012 which resulted in a serious fracture of both leg bones in my left leg and severe muscle damage. I was bedridden for almost 9 months and unable to work. Ben and the staff from Vettler immediately came to bat for me and quickly had my income protection activated, Ben even negotiated with my insurer for a better rate than I was normally entitled to.
Through all stages of my recovery I had constant updates and contact from Ben who helped resolve any financial stresses on myself and my family, I was able to focus on my healing and recovery while my finances were looked after by Vettler's helpful team. I highly recommend Vettler Financial Services. They were there for me when I really needed support and were incredibly easy to deal with."
"Over the last couple of years Ben D'Souza from Vettler Financial Services has managed my SUPER. He has been fabulous pulling all my various SUPER funds together from previous employers and even finding old SUPER funds I didn't know existed. My account has grown significantly over the last couple of years and this is solely thanks to Ben and his knowledge in this area.
On that note he always takes the time to explain things in simple ways so it is not confusing to a non financial person! I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone who is looking for an honest, friendly and knowledgeable SUPER professional."
"To the Directors, Vettler Financial Services, Peter Vettler and all. We just wanted to congratulate and thank Ben from Vettler Financial Services on the fantastic job he does looking after us! We have known Ben for a few years now and we wouldn't trust anyone else with our Financial security, and have recommended Ben to all our friends and family –now they all agree with us too!
He explains things in the most simplest of ways (Great for us!) and ensures that WE understand everything before it happens. He goes out of his way to keep us informed and even reminds to claim deductions at tax-time! We look forward to many more years of ongoing dedicated personal service, which is so rare in these times. Yours Sincerely,
A & J Thomas

"Pete became my Financial Adviser over 5 years ago. I was feeling rather vulnerable as my husband had died earlier in the year and I had little to do with our financial affairs. From my very first meeting I could tell Pete had a genuine concern for my financial interests and also for my wellbeing. Knowing that it is Pete looking after my superannuation and investments gives me immense peace of mind. "

"My Super was in a mess and totally under performing. After going to see Ben, I now feel completely confident that it is in the best possible fund and tailored to my needs. Everything was laid out to me and explained in an easy to understand way and I am always kept well informed of any changes or progress. I would highly recommend Ben D'Souza ( and have) to anyone seeking financial guidance."

"I was advised to make an appointment with Ben by a close friend. I had no intentions or concerns to invest or take out insurances until Ben explained it to me in simple terms. Although I am not the biggest investor, Ben was able to create a portfolio for me to suit my lifestyle and needs. He is very good communicator and keeps me posted throughout the whole process. I highly recommend any inexperienced or experienced investor to go see Ben. "

"I'm very new at this area of getting my super in a better state and getting ready for life down the track, my Wife and I first meeting with Ben was really relaxing and positive Ben was very helpful in explaining things in a way that we both could understand and not once did he push us in any direction that we didn't understand he gave us plenty of options to look at and again explained them really well. Its only early in our journey with Ben but he has been a big help thanks Ben."

"Since we first met Ben we have been impressed with his knowledge, his undying helpfulness, wonderful attitude. We would always feel confident recommending him to friends and family. if we ever win Lotto, he is the one person we would go to for advice and investment assistance. He never hesitates when we ask to meet at our home instead of the office, which for us is a godsend. We cannot speak highly enough of him."

"we have been with VETTLERS for many years and BEN D'SOUZA has been our Adviser for some years and has helped me get ready for retirement and sorted out our PENSIONS with CENTRELINK. We could not have survived if it was not for BEN and his Staff to sort out all the paperwork requirements.I and my wife find BEN to be an honest and caring person and we could not have asked for more in having Ben D'SOUZA as our FINANCIAL ADVISER."
