The team at Centaur have provided us with great insight into investing. We had spoken to the others, before the team at Centaur. We found them to be responsive, timely with the information we required. As a result of the professionalism shown, I have sought their advice for my whole family. A special mention to Jenna Wheeler. What an asset, she is goal orientated and will extend herself to ensure clients needs are fulfilled. Highly recommended.
