Testimonials

I have been a client of Michele’s now for about a year and was previously with a financial consultant with I was unhappy with: the result being my long term financial planning was not being taken car of very well and my investments were actually going backwards. As a teacher of limited financial means this was disastrous.

Since the I have been with Michele I have relooked at these long term projections. Michele has spent considerable time and energy in assisting me to find suitable and stable investments and savings plans that meet my needs now and more importantly for my long term financial planning and retirement. Michele constantly keeps me informed and I feel I can approach her with any questions I have. She is flexible and caring and has been fabulous in her role as advisor to me. She pays huge attention to detail, she is professional and up to date in her field and I feel very informed about both my investments and goals for long term planning.

I highly recommend Michele.

After seven years in Hong Kong, among them five for an international logistics group (ass regional CEO), almost two with my own company (part owner), I can I have had some experience with financial brokers and advisors.

I have been working with one of the many blue suits same tie brokers for years in Hong Kong and apart of the fact that the people in charge of me changed every year, the financial situation hardly improved.

When I met Trevor from Infinity he connected me with Michele who has been the by far most proactive and helpful person on the market here. So gradually I got my medical insurance, my MPF, and my retirement plan fixed with her. Up to today I have not regretted this a minute, she is always available when needed, gives perfect advice, and thinks way ahead of the market.

I highly recommend Michele for her very professional approach, her personal care, and her incredible reliability.

I wanted to thank you for the advice and friendly service you have provided me on my Personal investments.

As always you are very quick to respond to emails with advice and guide me. You company’s website is fantastic as I can check on my investments whenever I need.

Without your help I would be lost in the world of pension rules etc.

I am not one of those people who are finance crazy, in fact, I find it mundane, weird, I know.. Luckily I have met Michele Carby whom I absolutely love dealing with. I think she really understands me and my needs and actually has the ability to get through to me...
I feel very comfortable with her as I don't have to get formal with her, I can just simply tell her, this is what I want and I don't want to do XYZ to get it and she gets it and delivers.

Recently Michele Carby and PayPal Trehan paid us a visit to update our policies and I must say I was even more impressed than the last visit. They even indulged my 16 yo son who had taken a sudden interest in finance and I mean really indulged him. Sat with him, gave him good advice, he enjoyed the visit and looked forward to their next visit at which they also offered him solutions to some of his queries! I should add, he's an introvert and he felt comfortable with them.

I have also had the pleasure of dealing with Elize Van Wyk telephonically who is always pleasant and usually has me in stitches with her casual humor...

All 3 these ladies have been amazing and exceptionally patient. I would certainly recommend them highly!

There are a lot of investment houses that you can chose from here in Dubai. However, most will hide fees and show growth rates which are actually product accelerators (thus not reflecting reality) so it’s very easy to get duped into thinking you have a “growing” investment. I would recommend Michele Carby as she not only talks to you in layman’s terms, but also whether you’re investing $100 or $10,000 a month, Michele makes sure you’re well looked after!

I have met a number of financial advisers in my 47 years of work and have found Michele & Payal to be a dynamic duo , which Michele leads.

The freshness of their approach and willingness to research product lines is enlightening , incisive and wholesome.

I have confidence that my financial affairs are in qualified and caring hands and would not hesitate to recommend them both to others.

I am an Accountant but not registered as an IFA. Consequently, Michele has assisted me, not only for my own financial affairs, but also for clients. I find her to be amiable, competent and efficient in dealing with financial matters and also has taken the time to review all possibilities in a manner that is easy to grasp. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

I have been working with Michele and Payal at Holborn Assets Dubai now for the last 3 years. For me, the most important attribute I look for in my choice of FA is trust - I'm not a financial wizard nor do I want to be. I need to trust that the people I give my hard earned money to will do their best to look after and grow it, without me having to give directions. I am so happy to be working with Michele and Payal, and I have absolute trust in their desire to do the best for me, as well as the skills to do it. Payal frankly knows more about world goings-on and how to apply it to making solid investments than the Financial Times.

Of course the real proof is in the results and in the short time since I consolidated all my savings and investments with them, they have doubled my growth and returns compared to how they were performing under other FA's.

For the serious investor this is good enough I expect. But an added bonus is they are a real delight to work with and bring not only a wealth of information to our face to face meetings, but a great attitude and big smiles too.

"Michele Carby is fantastic in every way. I’m a disaster when it comes to money and when she went away, I returned to being a disaster. She makes everything ok and makes the minefield of financial management manageable. She is entirely trustworthy and decent and I’d trust her with everything I have. So now she manages me long-distance and I’m so glad because I could never find anyone like her to do the same job with the same commitment and enthusiasm." - Kartherine Birbalsingh
