“ I am forever indebted to Magnus for the timeous warnings he gave many years ago on Tigon, Usapho trust. Fidentia and Masterbond. When financial advisors were pressing their clients to invest in these schemes, MAGNUS and the late financial journalist of the FM were the only sane guys around. People around me lost millions. When Magnus says something, I listen very carefully. ”


“ Once again thank you Malissa for your comments and observations and we look forward to seeing your initial draft wills. I would also like to note that you are, for me, a rare person, who, without having to resort to lengthy verbal discussions, seems to recognize and get to, as well as display in your tabulated reply example, the nub of the questions I have posed. ”


“ Sonia, I have just read your very interesting supplement in this week’s FM, and it made me feel real good to be one of your 2,000 clients. Well done! What really stands out for me, is how uniquely placed BWM is by being totally independent and still managed by its three founders. Congratulations again on the 2017 Intellidex Wealth Manager award. ”


“ Thank you Brian for all your assistance and efficiency in managing my investments during 2017. I often think how lucky I was to have you managing my portfolio and hence allowing me to retire early and enjoy life.
Thank you. ”


“ I have been an avid reader of MH’s writings for over 2 decades, ever since his warnings on the huge pyramid schemes of the nineties. Other financial advisors were urging clients to invest with Porrit and the like. Heystek and the late Financial editor of the Fin Mail were the exceptions. Magnus has proved his integrity, insight and professionalism over and over again. ”


“ Baie dankie Magnus vir die ongelooflike ‘straight talking’ in jou artikel in Moneyweb vandag.
Magtig maar dit was pragtig! ‘May you be blessed to keep on keeping on’!. As ‘n entrepreneur vir meer as 30 jaar, kan ek net sê: Bravo vir Magnus Heystek!! ”


“ Thank you for the update. You are AMAZING Karen! Thank you for everything you have helped myself and Nicole with so far. I have only ever had great service and a great experience. It’s when organizations have individuals such as yourself that they win awards like TOP BOUTIQUE WEALTH MANAGER in SA. ”


“ Baie dankie vir die interessante grafiek. Dit wys jou net hoe belangrik dit is om van deskundige raad gebruik te maak, daarom wil ons jou graag bedank vir wat jy vir ons bereik het die afgelope 25 jaar. Ons waardeer dit regtig baie. Nogmaals baie dankie.”


“ Dankie vir die inligting om julle kliënte te laat deel in julle prosesse. In reaksie hierop kan ek slegs meld dat die diens wat ons oor talle jare van Sonia du Plessis ontvang het, sekerlik die beste behandeling is wat ons nog by enige instansie op enige stadium beleef het. Deur ondervinding weet ons dat sy te alle tye vir ons die beste sal doen, tenspyte daarvan dat ons belegging maar baie klein is. Onder haar sorg het ons nie veel behoefte aan addisionele inligting nie. Ons kan maar net hoop dat sy na verdienste beloon sal word vir die entosiasme waarmee sy haar werk doen. ”


“ Hiermee wil ons net aan julle as span oordra dat ons gister se gesprekspunte asook die samesyn agterna baie geniet het. Dit was regtig aangenaam – ook om die nuwe Kaapse lede van jul span te ontmoet.
Baie dankie Suzean. ”


“ Dankie aan jul almal en Yolandi by Brenthurst vir die seminaar. Ek het in die laaste tyd my kennis begin opskerp oor finansies en het die seminaar baie insiggewend gevind. My vriendin, Marie du Preez, wat oor ‘n jaar of wat aftree het ook na die seminaar vir die 1ste keer te laat blyk dat sy nou die waarde van die aftree beplanning insien. Dankie ook aan Magnus nie net vir die seminaar nie maar oor alles wat hy in die bree doen om die gewone mens bewus te maak van die korekte finansiele beplanning. Ek volg sy praatjies oor die afgelope paar jaar en het ook al heelwat van sy boeke aangekoop. ”


“Dear Magnus, In about 1998 you managed my portfolio of around R10m. You gave me this calculator which still works and has never needed a battery! Better still it has been adding up my returns on a monthly basis as is suggested on the calculator.

The only thing that has changed from then is the total amount. Its now much more. I have followed your diversification guidelines in retirement (at age 53) as suggested in your just received newsletter.

Thank you for putting me on the right track”


“Baie dankie vir die interessante grafiek Magnus. Dit wys jou net hoe belangrik dit is om van deskundige raad gebruik te maak, daarom wil ons jou graag bedank vir wat jy vir ons bereik het die afgelope 25 jaar. Ons waardeer dit regtig baie. Nogmaals baie dankie.”


“Brian, you are the best in this business “BRENTHURST VOTED AS SA’S TOP WEALTH MANAGER”. I have been with 4 other companies in this field before, but they were poor.”


“Dankie Richus vir die inligting, altyd baie insiggewend. Ek wil ook net van die geleentheid gebruik maak om vir jou en Ronelle te bedank vir uit sortering van my pension portefeulje. Julle diens was professioneel, vriendelik en geduldig. Ek ek beveel julle aan by almal wat navraag doen.”


“Ek kan nie my dankbaarheid in woorde uitspreek nie Suzean – jy het dit weer reggekry om my te kalmeer. Baie baie dankie vir jou gerusstellende antwoord en die uitstekende verduideliking.”


“Hi Mags, Just a short note from me to say thank you and that I’m happy I stuck with your advice on the new portfolio – I see it is performing well at the moment.”
