My name's Dom and I'm 73 years old. I came across the DIP Strategy and London Stone Investments quite recently and read the book. Unfortunately I didn't understand all of it because I don't have a lot of experience in the stock market. However I do have a lot of experience dealing with people and I know that the staff at London Stone are genuine. I spoke to Ranjeet, the owner, and author of the DIP, and we worked out that unfortunately I wasn't able to use his services because my portfolio wasn't quite big enough.
But that didn't stop him from giving me some free information and advice which has been really helpful. I was nearly conned a few years ago by a company but I smelled a rat and didn't invest. So I have a good idea of when I'm being lied to and when somebody is out for themselves.
My Aviva pension hasn't done very well in recent years and Ranjeet gave some great free advice on what I could do to improve it. He didn't earn a single penny in commission so he could have easily just walked away and ignored me. But instead he actually took the time out to help me.
And here's what I like the most. Ranjeet spoke to me several times after that even though he knew that he wasn't going to make any money out of me and that I couldn't be one of his clients. He even gave me his direct telephone line and told me that if anybody tries to scam me again, for me to call him.
I'm hoping one day that we can do business together in the future but for now I'm just happy that I've built a great relationship with a firm that I can trust.
If you have an opportunity to work with Ranjeet and his team I recommend that you do it.
I can't talk about his performance or anything like that, but I can tell you that as a person he's as honest and straight as you will find. And for me that's more important than anything else.
