Service Level Agreement/ Cliff Ryan’s Clients

As many of you are aware our short term business was restructured effective 1 June 2018.

With the advent of Cliff’s illness talks were underway with Barry Daines to assist Michelle Ryan in the servicing and management of the investment clients with Knysna Insurance Brokers.
Barry Daines and his team have been established in the area for over 30 years and share Knysna Insurance Brokers independent brokerage views, whilst at the same time having strong ties with all the major investment companies and linked service providers (contractual).
Whilst finality was not reached upon Cliff’s passing due to severe health constraints, we are currently finalizing a management agreement, and Michelle and Barry will be contacting you shortly to review your portfolio.

We value your support and are confident that your funds are structured in a way that no immediate action is required. But would like to assure you that we continue to strive for quality independent advice and service.

Please contact either Michelle or Barry Daines should you have any immediate concerns.
We, for our part will contact you shortly to discuss your portfolio and ongoing needs.

Yours Sincerely,

Michelle Ryan  – Cell No.: 083 3100 761
