What our clients say
A very professional company with a thorough and efficient approach to investing. I have had Murdoch manage our personal investments for many years and their service, attention to detail and communication has been superb. Their methods of selecting the fund based on the fund manager and not just the fund's past performance makes total sense and has proved successful in delivering above average returns. If you are considering changing your IFA and/or are unhappy with the returns you have been getting, it is worth listening to their presentation on how they work and the strategies they employ.
