I am what you would term a DIY-er & was apprehensive employing the services of a financial advisor. But what a positive experience it's been with Bobby & all the staff at Centaur! Definitely more cost effective (& sanity saving!) than having to do it all ourselves.Their communication skills are excellent, no matter your level of education, they patiently worked out & explained in easy to understand terms all options available to us, without any pressure. With their up-to-date knowledge & close relationships with industry & government institutions, we are 100% confident our financial security is in the best hands. It was a completely stress-free process, we can now enjoy retirement.Would not hesitate recommending Centaur to anyone requiring financial assistance.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the review and rating, Rob. Bobby and the team love working with you, and we look forward to continuing to kick your personal and financial goals. Enjoy that retirement!

Nick and the team at Centaur went above and beyond to help my mum plan and organise finances for my fathers aged care placement. Nick helped my mum with other paperwork even after his job was complete. Nothing was too much trouble. The advice he gave was imperative to my family’s future. When Dad died the Centaur team sent flowers and condolences to our family which was very unexpected. I could not recommend them highly enough. Thanks Nick and team.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the review, Gabb. Your feedback has truly warmed our hearts and we are so happy that Nick was able to assist your family in a time of need. Thank you for trusting us.
