  • I first hired Felix in April 2011 to arrange my critical illness cover. Now I am notoriously hard to pin down to arrange stuff like this due to my constant work load. Felix was totally understanding of this and his incredible perseverance with me resulted in finally securing an excellent policy for me in March 2012. Felix visited me at my workshop on a number of occasions to gain all the relevant information that he needed. I cannot thank Felix enough for his hard work and patience and will be glad to recommend him in the future. And he makes a damn fine cup of tea as well!
