Financial Planning Dubai

Michele Carby Originally I hail from Durban, South Africa – and graduated from the University of Natal with a B.Proc(Law) degree before embarking on a career in financial services. Over many years I have gained a wealth of international experience in the industry starting in South Africa, then London Hong Kong & now the UAE.

I still maintain and grow my personal client base. The truth is I love helping people with their financial planning and don’t think I could ever give it up. That one to one interaction with people and helping them plan and as the years pass achieve their objectives is what really gives me job satisfaction. I love it that every case is different and offers new challenges to be solved.

A client retiring without financial worries for the rest of their life, a young person graduating without a millstone of debt around their neck, a lifesaving operation paid for by insurance I have put in place; that’s what this job is about for me – making peoples’ hopes and dreams come true.

By sharing my passion and knowledge through my blogs I hope I introduce more people to the life changing power of good financial planning.
