One of the aspects of life that my father tried to teach me before he died at the young age of 43, was that you DO NOT mix business with pleasure, which, in the case of Troy Laas, proved to be wrong. I was referred to Troy by a mutual friend, when I was forced to retire in 2015. He not only became my financial advisor, but also a family friend. My father also instilled on us children that we go for a job with security, medical aid, pension et al. When I graduated, I followed his rule, and went for a stable job, but those were the years that you spent money like there was no tomorrow. Well, it’s now tomorrow. I left the private sector and went into lecturing tertiary students in Civil Engineering, where I retired after 30yrs service. Troys’ advice on how to invest my pension package, was of immeasurable advantage to me. He has kept me regularly updated as to how various funds were performing, as well as why it was necessary to change from one to another. Being an engineer, ask me to design a roof truss, and I am in my comfort zone, but don’t ask me to predict the financial market, which Troy has done admirably. Before I retired, I could never understand why retiring colleagues of mine were so concerned about what to do with their pension until my time came, and Troy pointed out the pitfalls. He accompanied me when I was signing forms at our HR department, who were also extremely impressed with his professionalism. Thanks to Troys’ sound financial advice and guidance, today is not the tomorrow I worried about yesterday.
Troy is extremely thorough in his analysis of his client’s needs and passionate about making a positive difference to their lives. It is a refreshing change to find somebody with so much knowledge in his field who still sees the little things that are important to his clients.
Troy has an understanding, second to none, of how my money should be invested wisely to take care of my family and grow exceptionally well. Troy is always available and willing to meet or discuss questions I may have and I highly recommend him.
