Wendy was a massive support and now plays a key role in my business, guiding me on all things financial. Her financial and business acumen is unparalleled. She is always approachable and ready to help, and nothing seems to faze her. Working with Wendy is like having a personal advisor as she treats you like you are her only client.

What our clients say

Cashing out in crypto is something that I and many others dream about yet dread (due to) the tax implications. Matthew Shallcrass was excellent, first of all by having a personal interest in Cryptocurrency he knew exactly what I was talking about. He clearly explained the current tax laws and gave options around how I could cash out. The process was smooth, communication was great and service was prompt. Couldn't have asked for more. I will continue to work with Matthew and highly recommend him to anyone in my situation. – Olly D
