Sandeep took over as our accountant only recently, however, in a very short period he has strategically cleaned up and fixed our previous accounting system and management structures and as a result has revolutionised our processes and have provided us with the in-depth reporting procedures. We have been thoroughly impressed with Sandeep’s technical skills and professionalism. Sandeep is incredibly generous with his time and expertise and his technical knowledge and ability to problem solve and think outside the box has greatly helped us achieve our business goals.

Les has spent countless hours providing a coaching / mentoring role to assist us to change the way we behave in relation to our finances and has opened opportunities that we did not even know exist. Our experience with Les has been nothing short of amazing. How one person can not only hear what is being said but is able to understand the emotional/psychological drivers underpinning the situation and respond with non-judgemental, well considered and highly documented advice is simply outstanding. In my mind, there could not possibly be a more caring, technically brilliant, financial adviser.
Les has been involved with the Cancer Council Pro Bono Program since its inception. Since then, financial advisors across the firm’s offices in Lismore and Ballina have assisted many clients, with a variety of financial issues including in relation to superannuation, Centrelink and debt management. To date, they have assisted 23 clients on a pro bono basis. Cancer Council would like to acknowledge the role Les takes in advocating for the benefits of Cancer Council’s Pro Bono Program within the financial planning community. Cancer Council values the commitment of the whole team at Future Proof Financial Planning to assisting people affected by cancer.
Engaging & working with Les was one of the best decisions I have ever made. From the outset he impressed me as an individual that not only possessed acute financial acumen and integrity, but also a real desire to “make a difference” for his clientele. Les has provided me with a variety of services; finance brokerage, varying insurances, debt recycling & investment strategies. Each time, the service & outcomes have far surpassed my expectations. It has taken me a great deal of time to find someone of his calibre and in the bargain, I have acquired a friend that has a vested interest in my future. I have recommended Les to several colleagues & friends in the firm knowledge that their experience will mirror my own.

Over the past 7 years Les’s professional advice and friendship has been the cornerstone in allowing both me and my wife to start our own business and I can attest that the businesses continued success and substantial growth over the past 3 years has been in no small part the ongoing mentorship and advice that Les continues to provide. To try and sum up I can honestly say that my life is better knowing Les McGuire. His continued support and friendship is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. There a very few people in this world that can make such a significant impact in one’s life just by being there. Les is certainly one of these, he is my rock in a stormy sea he is someone that I not only call a friend, but I am proud to call Brother. As Les would say ‘if you do the job right, everything else including the money takes care of itself.
Sometimes in life, you the client, can have all the money and houses you could ever need. But the pain of life and the reason for even being can negate any purpose of financial safety. It takes more than a degree or some fancy marketing talk and catchphrases handed down by head office, to make a difference. Sometimes it takes a human being, with a heart, a sense of humour, and with a familiar story, to actually save that client. Sometimes, it takes someone with an understanding that you need to invest in the person before you get to invest in the funds. Today I remain, with a secured future, and secured friendship. Today I continue with an outlook on understanding financial matters more. Today I chose, as easily as it is, to say thank you to Les Mcguire, for providing the knowledge, the understanding, the time, and the care.
