What our Clients Say

  • We love having Darren as our ‘go to’ person. Investments, loans, cashflow, tax, super, insurance, you name it.
    Mike & Jo, Mona Vale
  • Darren and the team at Align Financial are pro-active in tracking investment performance and new opportunities if they arise, however holding to a core strategy and stable investment portfolio has been a great advantage which we appreciate. They understand our risk profile and needs very well and communicate with us regularly. We always appreciate the friendly nature of our communications.
    Self-Employed Consulting Firm, NSW
  • They do what they say they are going to do. They deliver. They are open and honest in communication, responsive, helpful.
    Marketing Specialist, Sydney
  • Align Financial helped me in decisions that I had to make. They went to great lengths to help me. Even though it wasn't a Financial Planner's job.
    Retired, Fairlight
  • Whenever I have a question or worry it is attended to quickly and efficiently. I am not a high risk investor, so although the returns were not huge this year, my financial requirements are always met. I do not want to be involved from day to day but I am continuously kept informed when my investments are affected and Darren makes sure I understand what it all means...When I was widowed recently and became overwhelmed with the whole financial process, Darren managed everything for me. He kept my sanity! This is definitely above and beyond what I pay him for.
    Retired wine maker, NSW
  • Darren is a switched on and proactive adviser who has only ever given us sound advice. He is very professional and always keeps us up to date. I feel he tailors his advice specifically to our needs and goals, and I know he always has our best interest at heart.
    Self-Employed Builder, Mona Vale
  • Congratulations. What really works for my wife and I is that you have a strong team that communicates. Again well done.
    Retired, NSW
  • He has explained all of my questions in a way that was easy to understand and where I had a much better understanding of how the system works.
    Telecommunications Manager, NSW
  • Align Financial are always available and easy to communicate with. Questions are answered promptly and full explanations given. We always get the feeling we are the most important clients they have.
    Communications Manager, Elanora Heights
  • Taking the worry out of our financial life and allowing us to get on enjoying our retirement.
    Retired, Mona Vale

Eight reasons you’re not a millionaire – yet

There’s a common misconception that if you’re not rich then you’re simply not working hard enough. And that’s not completely true. Of course, most people who have made money have worked hard (no one becomes a millionaire by sitting on the couch watching TV all day) but you also need to refrain from financially damaging […]
