PFC International

Has anyone used the investment services of PFC Intl in Wyndham St recently? I used them quite a few years ago and was happy with what they did, but if anyone has recent experience, I'd be grateful.

Avoid all hong kong financial advice. They are more interested in making money from you than making money for you.

how do you think they afford to rent on Wyndham St? Time to close this non HK aviation related advert.

Lowkoon,
Not an ad at all, simply a question! I have nothing to do with them in any way, but merely wanted a civil input. Never mind.

As frogman said, keep well clear of all HK "Financial Advisors".

Google reviews of the products they are peddling, FPI, OM etc. All are front end loaded with fees for the advisors and the plan provider.

Have a look at ETF's as a substitute.

I agree,all financial advisors in HK are pretty much crooks.I invested 97K in FPI QROPS five years ago and have lost 35K mostly in front end loaded fees.I am in litigation now.Best advice I could give is invest your own money yourself.Financial advisors are the real bottom feeders of HK society and that is saying something!

The best financial advice for pilots. Ask what your colleagues are doing, the do the opposite!

They are all wolf of wall street wannabe's. Avoid em. They are all nothing more than the modern day used car salesman. Especially avoid a Pilot that has left aviation in order to become a financial advisor... these guys are the worst! No Exceptions Ever. Manage your own money...Its the safest bet.
