B] Each Client Is Different

Each client is different due to specific personal circumstances, wishes, past and future perspective. Therefore we treat each client as a separate project and carefully establish the exact situation of our client.

Regarding the implementation it is for us important that we have only one quality standard. We treat each type of client with the exact same level of attention and care.

From a young expat with a small question to an international corporate project, it all receives the same level of quality. As it is equally important for each client.

C] Communication Is Key

When we advise our clients, there are often technical details involved. They can be complicated. Especially in an international context.

One of the most important aspects of our service is to provide a very client friendly communication. We will always focus on explaining the situation in the most simple manner and use normal words.

Therefore we always end our Memorandum with a short conclusion without any technicalities. We also gladly discuss the Memorandum during a Zoom as this adds to the understanding. It offers us the chance to see what is not totally clear so that we can explain it again in a different way.

D] Mission Statement

To provide quality consultancy with an exceptional service level.

We specifically do not seek to grow fast nor do we seek to have the highest revenues.

It is our experience that our focus on quality and long-term relationships leads to a healthy company with lasting contacts with al parties involved.

E] Our Values

We focus on the long-term and believe in a win-win situation. Thus we strive for success for our people, our clients and our business. Our one differentiator is our culture, both within the firm and with our clients.

our values

Our culture is caring and protective of our people alongside an environment where they can develop and flourish. Which values also reflected in the way that we work with clients: Taking time to understand their business and investing in a long-term relationship to ensure that we can provide the best possible advice.

F] Team

We have a flexible international team whose members complement each others specialties. Which includes financial, tax, estate planning, product specialists and client service coordinators. All focused on the best technical solutions and client service.

Our Director Patrick Donders sees to the overall project handling and quality standards.
