The Team

All our staff at Cooke Fuller Group have passed their required regulatory examinations with flying colours, and will continue to pursue their authorized studies to keep up to date with the ever-changing market trends. We are proud to boast some highly qualified staff members with qualifications such as CFP®, RFP® various other degrees.

An even bigger feather in our cap is our exceptionally low staff turnover, with a few longstanding staff members exceeding over 20 years of service, and the majority well over the 10 - 15 year line! A contented staff base enables them to focus solely on building strong relationships with individual clients, and even if your broker is unavailable when you need them, another broker will happily assist you. By incentivising our staff for client retention rather than new business, all energy is channeled into keeping existing customers as happy as possible. Modern and efficient systems and equipment have also been put into place to promote 24-hour access to management.
