Default Wealth Manager...

Been approached by a bird from this company; One International

Anyone heard of them / know anything?

Not replied / looked yet. You lot are more useful.

Meow - don't get offended, I still have your email about the offshore stuff and I will come to you first, probably.

Cheers

Considering the free advice I've given you, you ought to!

Yes, I know them, Many are ex- 'VD' (cf The Dean) people. One to be avoided.



Here's a handy tip. Avoid anyone who uses the stupid title of 'wealth manager'.

Yeah - they called me a couple weeks ago - told them to sod off and speak to Meow... Maybe someone stole VD's database on the way out the door...

The free advice you gave me is stellar. I will be taking you for coffee at some point for more, just when I have a bit more cash to do something with, but that will come.

I don't know what the bold bit means?

It's a sort of code for a particular company who cannot be named for legal reasons. (Because they are sensitive to all the well-deserved negative criticism!). A switching of initials coined by The Dean.

Think I have had 3 calls, but each time suggested they stop wasting both my time, and theirs.

Ah yes...............

"Hello [uses my first name, without being invited to], I'm calling to ask if you have written a Sharia-compliant will."

"I don't need one. I have no assets here, and I have a will in the UK."

"You still would benefit from a Sharia-compliant will."

"Why?"

"Er........ well............ "

That always makes me laugh.

I'd feel like a really self important knob if I expected to be called Mr. xxxx

Each to their own I suppose.
