Tim Downing • Managing Director
“Investment with Bastien Jack was extremely easy to set up & totally “hands off”, rate of return beat anything on the market & money was available as promised at the end of the period. Frequent updates from the company as development progressed & Dave Orrey, Business Development manager, always on hand to answer any queries. Would have no hesitation in recommending & trusting them with my investment again in future.”
