I have had the pleasure of being advised by John for the past 6 years in the Middle East, Asia and Europe. He recommended the pre ICO Digitex Futures and it has increased 10 fold. He has consistently proven to be one of the most driven and professional individuals I have worked with within the financial service industry.

John's knowledge in the Finance Industry is second to none, he is a great leader and director and always strives to get the best and achieve the best from his teams, with the highest level of professionalism. He has a great understanding of what clients' needs are and what would benefit them the most in their financial life. I would always highly recommend John in any aspect as a person, colleague or as a Financial Expert in his field. Now he's moved in to advising on ICOs in the crypto space. There really is no stopping him!

When you work with John you immediately notice that he is a very amiable, self-motivated and energetic person. He is an excellent team leader and his motivation helps to constantly increase Western Europe’s financial success and also supports Western Europe’s offices to constantly keep on expanding. John is the perfect role model as he shows extreme determination and inspiration to all Lion Asset Management financial advisers. John runs his teams in a highly organised and professional manner. Each of his offices offer constant support for all employees, ongoing training and they are professional, enjoyable working environments.

I've been working in John's region of Western Europe for 6 weeks in the Brussels office which has been a great experience. It's great that he got involved in crypto so early too. The Western Europe region is the best region to join to learn the business. Training and support is excellent and the team are a good bunch. Everyone has been very supportive and everything is here for you to make it work.

John has exceptional people skills and strong leadership capabilities. His work ethic is professional and he takes his responsibilities very seriously. He has excellent communication skills and conducts himself in a professional manner at all times. His knowledge of the Financial Industry is complex and comprehensive. I strongly acknowledge his enthusiasm, motivation and dedication. And what a winner Digitex Futures is! I was in at at the ICO.

Bringing with him decades of Industry experience - he was my trainer and mentor in the eighties - and now moving in to the world of crypto, John is in tune with the markets in which he operates. Constantly seeking new solutions for his clients, he sets high standards. He is both dynamic and balanced in his approach and a source of expertise in his field.

John's attention to the finer details and belief in delivering the full financial package and exceptional service to clients has enabled him to grow Lion Asset Management successfully and I know under his guidance together with the new crypto division it will continue to grow and succeed for a long time. Thanks for the tip on DGTX John. I dropped $50K in and I'm sure it will be a winner.

John is an exceptionally focused individual, results driven with attention to detail. His support and energy are boundless. Having worked closely with John over the last 3 years he has helped me improve as a person and in my role with Lion Asset Management. My success and my team's success is down to the help, support and training he has given me over this time. I'm looking forward to moving in to the trading division soon and his belief in the Digitex Futures ICO is infectious. What a great idea.

I met John recently when I was invited to talk at a convention for the Lion Asset Management consultants in Asia. I was very impressed by the organisation of the event and by John’s engaging manner, his infectious enthusiasm and his obvious leadership skills.
I was billed to speak straight after John. He gave such an inspiring address to the assembled consultants, traders and clients that when I stepped on to the stage I immediately invited them to show their appreciation once again. The audience needed no encouragement at all - they gave him another deafening round of applause! Which says it all.
Phil Macintyre September 26, 2016
John, has proved time and time again, what an excellent manager he is. With innovative training and forward think and planning, he has taken Western Europe, Asia and myself to another level. Words cannot explain John, but his actions and results do. A pleasure to work with him/for him on all fronts. I am looking forward to moving across to the new crypto division in a few weeks.
Hans Pletz August 15, 2016
With his positive 'can-do' attitude, John has taken Lion Asset Management from strength to strength. With the exceptional planning and implementation of ideas he gets the most out of his team and ensures that they are constantly developing.
Gary Wilson August 8, 2015
John is an extremely dedicated, talented, focused and hard working trader. I have attended his seminars for 6 years now and in that time have realised that there are few traders who have the ability to inspire, motivate and train on John's level. His talents are wide ranging and I would without hesitation recommend him both as a trainer, trader and manager at all levels.
Olie Obojo August 4, 2015
John has been a pleasure to work with during my time at Lion Asset Management. He is a very useful sounding board for new ideas and strategies. Above all else he is a great motivator which has and will continue to allow him to get the absolute most out of his team.

John really is the driving force, his seminars have seen tremendous levels of growth. He is a trader who leads from the front and, most importantly, shows how it's done. He has an energy and passion that is unparalleled. John demands 110% from all who attend the seminars. Team and clients! His support and infectious drive to succeed are the major factors to which I attribute where I am in my career to date.

John gets the job done, he is truly an inspirational trader. Never have I known a person so committed to being the best and his ridiculously high standards he sets himself are infectious. He is someone that I would walk over hot coals for. Top man.

Having worked with John in the Middle East for several years, I built up a strong respect for his consistency, commitment and attention to detail. He exhibited excellent trading skills and a proactive approach to developing those people who reported to him. This has resulted in his well-deserved growth of Lion Asset Management and the promotion and growth of many members of his team, who have followed in his success.
