“I would not be as successful as I now am, without the numerous years of financial advice you have given me! Thank you Graeme Kirkland!
I have achieved a material difference in the strength of my financial health today – directly as a result of your time, your care, your explanations, your insights, and your overall considerate investment and financially strategic advice shared with me over the years.
I have particularly noticed this, moreso in recent years, as I have opened up, and listened to you more.
I openly concede that a most important part of this process is the fact that ‘my skin in the game,’ or my participation, and my sincere interest in achieving more for myself, my open-mindedness, my increased maturity, my increased capital contribution, and my willingness to apply myself to your particular process of success-achievement – this has also, really made a difference in our working together. It takes two to tango!
But your particular intelligent leadership, and earnest professional care for me in this process – well this has really made an unquestionably positive difference! Wow!
I am increasingly excited for my future. I am also very proud of what I have now achieved with your excellent professional guidance.
Thank you Mr. Graeme Kirkland!”

“I really appreciate all the work you have done for me. You are working for me, to grow my account, and, over time, you have succeeded.
You have educated me; when I have questions, I ask, and you explain things very well.
My experience with past investment advisers over the years, was not as good as it has been with you – for several reasons:
1) you do not always ‘follow the crowd,’ and I like that.
2) you don’t have a home-bias, and I like that.
3) you think ‘out of the box’ – I like that.
4) you make the effort to care for my accounts with your ongoing expert analysis, and actions, when required – and obviously, I like this.
5) you make the effort to maintain a good level of ongoing, pro-active, regular personal contact with me – this is key.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for me.”

He keeps me engaged in the process. My opinion is respected and Graeme allows me to participate in the process as much as I desire; it is not a one-way street.

U.Z. – CEO
“I have been investing for many years now. I am very confident with the professional work I have received from Graeme Kirkland over many years now. He was highly referred to me from another experienced financial advisor I had, for years before – because I wanted a more sophisticated full-service offering than I had received for the years previous. Mr. Kirkland has proven to be a creative-thinker, market-savvy, very hard-working, and an experienced and exemplary investment professional who shows good considerations and good care for myself and all of my family.
I did not initially move all of my assets to Graeme’s professional practice; however it was not long before I moved all assets from a competing firm to his care. It just made sense. I like his pro-active, customized, unique approach to investment management. His awareness and utilization of multiple international currencies and securities beyond just the commonplace domestic markets is a service we didn’t enjoy with other advisors we had in past, but of which we have enjoyed with Graeme – this kind of more sophisticated, expansive outlook and approach is something else, and it has been rewarding. Should you happen to be qualified to be a client in Graeme’s professional practice, I believe you would be quite fortunate to enjoy the expanded benefits of having a superior investment professional like Graeme Kirkland.”
