Hercules Khumalo

Systems Analyst – Engen.  Retired October 2017

I never knew how stressful having to retire would be.

Fortunately being part of a large corporation, provided me with the privilege of getting assistance from many financial advisors.

My challenge was that everyone had something different to say.  I also felt pressurised into making decisions without knowing whether they would allow me to live the way I wanted to in my retirement.

Dhevan Naicker of Retirement Wellness SA was referred to me by one of my colleagues.

During our initial meeting, I immediately saw something different about him.  We met for almost three hours and he just listened.  For the first time, I had someone who was genuinely interested in me, my family and my tradition.  I felt relaxed.

In the meetings that followed Dhevan showed to me what my retirement options were.  This was all new to me but he explained everything in a way that made sense to me.

I was delighted when he showed me that I could achieve ALL the things on my list of goals.  With his guidance, I was able to save thousands in tax, earn an income that would allow me to live comfortably and should I pass away my family would be secure.

Prior to me signing, he invited my family and I to meet with him and go through the final plans.  I appreciated this.

It has been a pleasure working with a company that is so committed at helping others.  They are meticulous and transparent.  They’ve honoured all their commitments and communicate with me regularly.  They have earned my trust.

I recommend anyone who is retiring to consult them.
