As ex-patriates of some 25 years standing we have lived in many countries and consulted a number of different companies about our financial affairs. Now as clients of PWI we have finally found the ‘peace of mind’ we have been looking for. PWI expertise, attention to detail & personal service is the best we have ever encountered. We are very happy with our investment results and improved level of income. The ‘passing on’ of our assets to our children & grandchildren is very important for us and PWI has helped us to plan intelligently both for today and for the future.Mougins, France & London UK
