“Coming into my inheritance was simultaneously an amazingly exciting experience, and an extremely frightening prospect. Pamela and the team at Prestige Wealth Partners have helped me in too many ways to list. My sister recommended Pamela to me when I first expressed worries to her about how to manage a large amount of money, and right off the bat Pamela has been a huge help, and I can say with confidence she would be welcome in my home.

My advice to someone looking for help in financial matters would be to make sure that you gel with your advisor, find someone who is able to talk to you as a friend, not just an advisor. For me, Pamela is that person.”

His vision for Prestige Wealth Partners is not just about managing wealth but empowering individuals and organisations to recognise and address financial vulnerabilities head-on.

“In times of hardship and Covid when my job was at risk, I found that I needed support more than ever from Pamela and the team. Careful budget planning and seeking various options on assistance available to me was something I could not do myself. I felt financially vulnerable and at risk for the first time in my life and this did not make me feel comfortable at all. Pamela guided me through that challenging time, even helped me to decide which TV subscription to put on hold for a while and how to make smarter decisions whilst shopping, she even introduced me to Hello Fresh which has literally revolutionised my dinner preparation routine and saved not only money but also time which has been so valuable to me. Now that I am past this rocky patch in my life, I feel that I didn’t make any hasty decisions and my financial wellbeing is in a stronger position that ever before.”
