Our Clients

Our situation has also changed a lot over this period, mainly when we moved to live and work in Japan from April 2014, remaining here in a role in Tokyo. At the time of the move, Nigel and his team provided a comprehensive analysis of the likely local tax and investment implications of becoming Japan residents, and this has been helpful for the nearly six years we have been here.

Michael & Laysee Atkins
Senior Executive/Company Director (in Japan)

Nigel Janson has been looking after my superannuation interests for over 10 years. During this time I have found Nigel to be prompt with any request I have made and he has provided informative newsletters as to variations in the market which may affect superannuations in general. Although I would classify my superannuation as modest I feel I have always been treated in the same manner as any other superannuation investor.
