I recently met with my financial advisor Scott Quinlan to discuss proposed plans for retirement. As always, Scott was able to set out the information, processes and options in a clear and easily understood manner. Aside from the clear and sound financial advice, what most impressed with was the time that Scott took to actually talk to me about my readiness to retire. To check that I was mentally ready to enter this next phase and transition from work. I came away from the meeting feeling valued and reaffirmed that this was the right time as all of the issues I had been pondering were discussed openly. I cannot recommend Scott highly enough. He has been a valued advisor of myself and my husband for over 15 years and his management of our retirement funds has placed in a great financial position.

My Wife and I started with Scott when he was with Whittaker Macnaught and have been with him to this day. We are now retired, and self funded thanks to Scott and Solace Financial. Kevin & Lorraine Bray. 👍👌

Scott and the team at Solace Financial are magnificent. We came to them in a quite a mess after the GFC, and they have confidently guided us to a stronger financial position with an investment strategy aligned with our risk profile and life goals.

Scott Quinlan at Solace Financial has been advising me since 2017. Scott actively manages your investment and he thinks about it through the lens of your individual needs. Scott's support staff, in particular his EA Mel, are quick and efficient in attending to the daily management of his client portfolios.
