Thankfully, my wife introduced me to Max Ding over 11 years ago. I was a radiologist working in a major hospital for long hours. We had mortgage and were expecting our 2nd child. I had never before had insurance and Max discussed with me and my wife the importance of protecting myself against the unexpected.

During years after that, Max was in constant contact, with great financial and insurance advice. When the unexpected finally did happen, with my diagnosis of cancer, we were shocked. I had never thought it would really happen to me, and it also had no signs at all before the diagnosis by my doctor. But at least we were financially prepared. In the days and weeks following my diagnosis, my world became a labyrinth of needles, tests, scans, and operations.

Knowing that I had Max to call on was such a relief. He and his team skilfully and painlessly guided me through the financial and insurance processes required. In such a highly emotional and volatile time, with loss of income and mounting medical bills, he was one of our first phone calls. He responded immediately and personally, and sorted everything out.

I will always be so grateful to Max for his knowledge and personal care. He freed me from financial worries during this period, allowing me to focus on my own medical battles. I was able to fight my cancer well, knowing that I had financial support, which allowed for provision of care for my two young children and payments of extensive medical costs.

To this day, I have been able to progressively re-enter the workforce, supported by Max, and a rehabilitation team. I cannot recommend Max, his wisdom, knowledge and experience highly enough. I am so glad that he was part of my cancer fighting team.

I have been involved with Max and OzDream Financial Services professionally and personally for the last 9 years. Max and his team at OzDream practice what they preach in providing an individual and personalised approach to understanding a client’s needs rather than just your usual ‘sales’ approach to get you signed up, secure a trailer from a product sold, with very little contact afterwards.

They ensure they are maintaining the relationship so that your cover and advice remains relevant despite changing circumstances as happen; be it changes to business circumstances or your personal situation. Max and his team also have proven to be creative and flexible in my professional dealings in finding solutions for clients.

“Max has visited our home occasionally for a chat and an update on my progress. This personal touch as well as his professionalism and efficiency have meant a great deal to our family. We often wonder where we would be now if it wasn’t for all their help. This year I have had the misfortune of personally having to test out the strength of the trauma cover Max had recommended and I could not have been better covered. Max and his team also managed the claims process from A to Z making the process as seamless as possible.

They also have the added benefit of their professional services with my finance and mortgage strategies, Jean Yang provided superior mortgage and financing solutions which helped me save thousands in my home and investment property loans.

I have no hesitations in recommending Max, Jean and OzDream Financial Services team to anyone seeking financial planning advice, insurance cover solutions and any Super assistance or any associated financial services.

I have been knowing Max for several years. I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all challenge with dedication and a smile.

Besides being a joy to work with, Max is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He has successfully developed several marketing plans that have resulted in increased value for company. Max was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company. In addition to giving effective presentation for sales representatives in sales meetings, inspiring and motivating other employees.

I highly recommend Max for giving value finance advice like life insurance and protection to everybody.

Since I join Vitality program, I got inspired to maintain my healthy lifestyle. Why? Because I got rewards to be healthy & save money at the same time. The more activities I did, more rewards I got like Woolies/Juice Boost/shopping vouchers & also cheaper insurance premium. The rewards are more than the cost of joining fee. The biggest rewards: I am healthy.
