Dawn was very helpful and provided me with some much needed advice as well as resources to look into for the start of my financial journey. This meeting was complementary as my parents are clients of TWD. I highly recommend this to others.

We've been with TWD for over ten years now. Even though we are one of the very few non-resident clients, the TWD team has gone out of its way to accomodate us and our specific needs with respect to tax reporting. Outstanding service and great portfolio performance, too.

Thank you Dawn for the informative session you gave the team at Clearstream for International Women's Day! Everyone was so engaged during the session and got so much out of it. There was a lot of discussion following the session, and still a few weeks on, employees are talking about it and checking in with their colleagues with regards to how their financial setup goals are coming along.

Every now and then you meet a professional, who was highly recommended to us, that established trust and clarity in one phone call. That person is Cara Graham. She outlined over the phone, then followed up with a detailed email, of how to make the most of our first session to establish a successful path going forward. Our meeting with her was life changing and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take control of their financial future with a highly knowledgeable and caring professional. Thank you so very much Cara!

Investment advice is underpinned by an investment committee who stay on top of global and local trends and performance. TWD are a great choice to help on any journey to being in the best possible finalcial position.

We have been with TWD for nearly 20 years, initially meeting Troy as the business started. Over that time Troy's, and the subsequent advisors, advice has been fantastic and wonderfully tailored to our family circumstances. As TWD have grown they have not lost their personable approach but have added more strings to their financial planning bow. We couldn't be happier with the support provided and look forward to many more years of working together.

Dawn is passionate and speaks from the heart in a way the really engages an audience. Her insights on empowering the next generation and the challenges women face were eye opening. Could not speak highly enough of Dawn. Thank you for being a part of this very special event.

Dawn and her team at TWD have been Fantastic from the start. I lost my husband in July, so TWD stepped in and covered all my financial requirements to help take the stress away in a horrible time with claims through super and life insurance companies. I would never have been able to do it in a short period of time and get the great result like Dawn and her team. Thanks guys.

They helped my partner and I to clearly define our goals and set the checkpoints for achieving a number of small and large financial objectives within the next decade.After the initial consultation process, we dealt mostly with Robin as Cara took maternity leave.Robin is a pleasure to work with and he is always happy to explain complex ideas and strategies to ensure that we fully understand our path.Thank you, Robin and Cara, for your help and guidance.

Dawn Thomas is the epitome of the modern day Financial Adviser. I am a Financial Adviser myself and have interviewed Dawn a few times now on my podcast.

Dawn Thomas a senior adviser at TWD has been involved with numerous career development workshops and activities at Murdoch University where she was able to challenge our students to think critically and look at their personal style of leadership. She talks with great enthusiasm about financial strategies and her role as a change maker in the industry. Our students' feedback was that Dawn made them think differently about their own future career development and their place in the world of work.

Since the start of the year, I've been using TWD to look over my finances and investment strategies. Cara Graham completed a comprehensive assessment of my financial needs and goals. She made a clear step by step plan on how we could implement all the advice.I found TWD and Cara's services invaluable as they saved days of my own time reviewing insurance documents, investment options, etc., while providing me with the confidence that an expert has reviewed all the options to meet my goals.

In the short time that I have engaged Troy as my financial adviser I have found him to be friendly and accommodating. Troy has an easy going manner which belies his very professional approach to the job. His advice has been meaningful and pertinent; and always with me as the beneficiary. I would certainly recommend Troy and his team if you are seeking a financial adviser that you can trust and rely upon.

As a TWD client for 7 years, I have always been, and remain, impressed by Troy's concern for me and the ways he can unlock my financial future to meet my goals. The TWD focus on the individual as a human, was what attracted me to TWD, and this has been evident throughout our meetings over the years whether they are in person or online.

My wife Helen and I have been with The Wealth Designers for a number of years after being referred by a friend. Our first meeting was with Troy and from the first meeting we were put at ease by Troy's easy going manner. The processes were explained in language that even I can understand. TWD staff are a pleasure to deal with. They are polite and patient. Our reviews are done bi annually and Helen and I are confident that our future financial security is in good hands. Such is our confidence in Troy and TWD that we have no hesitation in referring friends and family.

I've been a client for the past 8 years with TWD. I would highly recommend this firm and Troy to anyone seeking professional advice from a highly moral and honest business.It has been during the more challenging times that I feel TWD and Troy have shone. During these times they have put me first and taken actions that hurt their fees taken but was good for me as a client. They have been proactive in both good and changing times.I don't believe there is any higher praise than providing good returns and putting me before their own short term needs.

Troy and the team at TWD have been amazing in helping me achieve my financial goals over the 10+ years I have worked with them. I have felt confident in the decisions I’ve made knowing that I am supported by such a great firm. I have been through some tough times over the last few years and knowing that Troy is always there to share his knowledge and advice, as well as friendship, has provided comfort and security to myself and my family. I highly recommend Troy and the team at TWD.
