Thank you sincerely for the generous amount of time spent on advising me on all financial and insurance matters. After making a significant professional change, John made me aware of the need to reassess my income protection insurance cover. As it turns out, the new policy which I purchased as advised by John, covered me for my recent out of work accident.
