Client Testimonials


Paul Attenborough, Property Investor

Performing at up to 180% better than the market average during coaching (or 2.8 times the All Ords).
Over 80% of his trades were profitable during coaching.
Increased his rate of return by 37% since he started working with Saratoga!

Paul Said: "I've bought and sold property for over twenty years and wanted to learn how to take profits from the share market as well. I looked around at many of the "systems" for sale out there, because if there was one thing I learned from the property market it was to do your research before you invest any money. You guy's have been great from day one, you're down to earth and really easy to deal with. I really like the way the Saratoga Safe Investing Method is so simple and easy to understand. Looking forward to a long and profitable relationship."


Ian TalmadgeIan Talmadge, Painter / Decorator and Vinyl Record Specialist
Consistently performing better than the market average.
Over 65% of his trades were profitable during coaching.
Increased his rate of return by 15% in just 2 months with $11,000 profit.
Ian Said: "I mainly work as a Painter and Decorator and also have experience and continue to grow an e-commerce business selling Vinyl Records. Now-a-days I am getting closer to becoming a full time investor with every trade!

I have been to a few investment seminars and did invest sometime ago in an equity growth program which showed me a little bit about fundamental and technical analysis. Previously I have owned a few shares but these, like many investors, were mainly under a buy and hold strategy.

I have also been receiving emails from various do-it-yourself investment companies for quite some time now. However, I felt that most companies were more-or-less providing "cheat the market" style systems informing me about directors holdings and the like - trying to gain an edge over everyone else. I decided that if it was that easy then everyone would be doing it!

Also, I found that many approaches seemed to be slanted towards day trading rather than a steadier more consistent investing approach. I recently received a lump sum payment and really wanted to do something with it. What I really wanted was something which would teach me a proven and consistent investment method.

So, now I spend about two hours a week on my investing and enjoy life the rest of the time. Not all of this time is dedicated to looking over share charts and company information, but also reading about and experiencing the Saratoga Safe Investing Method.

I feel that the Saratoga staff, in particular my personal investment coach, were very easy to get along with, delivered the material professionally and backed everything up with high quality information that I felt greatly enhanced my understanding of the share market.

Before joining Saratoga I was fairly daunted with the task that was before me and particularly put-off by the complex terminology that was being bounced off the various emails I received. However after joining Saratoga I was put at ease with the logical, common sense method that they employ and I look forward to continually applying my skills throughout the rest of my investment life span.

The skills I gained have enabled me to sail through downturns in the market such as September 11. My skills in sticking to my investment plans, picking the right stocks and controlling my emotions throughout market downturns and the months the followed helped me come out the other side smelling like roses!

I believe that the cost of the Saratoga program was money well invested and I now have the ability not only to recoup that investment but make it many times over.

I truly feel that I now have a strong level of confidence in my investment abilities, have faith in my knowledge and can trade without emotion. As such I would definitely recommend Saratoga's service to anyone in a similar position to myself."


David ManeDavid Mane, Wedding Photographer
Performance of 70% better than average (or 1.7 times the All Ords).
Nearly 90% of his trades were profitable during coaching.
Increased his rate of return significantly by moving from specs to blue chip shares.

David Said: "I have been a Wedding Photographer for many years now. Nothing gives me more pleasure than taking photographs, however I have always desired an alternative income source and wanted to get involved in the financial markets.

Before joining Saratoga I tried just about everything. I was researching and reading many books and continued down the path of self-learning for a period of four years. Thinking that I had attained a strong level of skills I went into the options markets with the knowledge I had learned over the years and then proceeded to lose a fortune.

I knew then that I needed help and decided that a third party might be able to assist me with obtaining these seemingly unattainable skills. I chose Saratoga because at the end of the day everything seemed to make sense, was logical, detailed and clearly explained.

I found that Saratoga made everything much simpler than I had first thought. The staff are genuine and enthusiastic with a level of patience and expertise that put me at ease and helped me to stick to my investment plans.

The information and coaching that I received in the early days was hard to fault and as such I believed that I would get enormous benefit from working one-on-one with an investment coach from Saratoga.

Even though I kept making the same mistakes I found the supportive nature of the coaches moved me to the stage where I was able to start doing things accurately, slowly and with focus on my objectives.

No matter how much reading I did it cannot match what I received from my personal investment coaches at Saratoga. They were able to objectively provide the services which enabled me to gain confidence in my own investing abilities. I have no doubt that the patience of the investment coaches was paramount to the success that I am now achieving.

Now-a-days I spend around one hour a day on my investments, which will soon become my primary source of income! Honestly, buying this investment program from Saratoga was the best money I've ever spent. Now, with confidence in my own abilities, I can pay for my investment in Saratoga many times over."


Bill Tucker, Farmer for over 30 years
Performing at over 90% better than the market average during coaching (or 1.9 times the All Ords).
Over 90% of his trades have been profitable during coaching, with more than $10,500 in profit.
Increased his rate of return by 14% in just a few months.

Bill Said: "As a Farmer for over 30 years I know only too well the problems with a seasonal income. I wanted to start winding things down and felt that looking at shares was a way I could stay stimulated and create a more regular income stream during retirement.

I did previously have some money in managed funds, but I felt that they weren't flexible enough for me and the returns just weren't good enough. My theory is that if you're managing your own money you tend to do a lot more with it because it's yours.

I had completed courses prior to joining Saratoga, however they went into too much detail for me. What I wanted was a simple approach to investing in the share market.

The Saratoga program is simple and easy to understand and so now I manage my own money.

I rarely look at my shares more than once a day now and I still practice with Trade Simulator, to tweak and fine-tune my strategies.

I believe that if you want to beat the market and the managed funds then you've got to just do it yourself and take control of your own investments. Saratoga has made it easy for me to do exactly that. Thank you!"


Alan PomeroyAlan Pomeroy, University Professor
Currently performing 180% better than average (or 2.8 times the All Ords).
Over 70% of his trades were profitable during coaching.
Increased his rate of return by 28% in the past 3 months – try finding a bank or managed fund that would do that!

Alan Said: "I am currently a lecturer of Risk Assessment and Occupational Health and Safety so you could say I am very aware of managing risk.

I did a course on technical analysis and had previously invested in a few shares. The course helped me understand the basics but I wanted to trade confidently and more profitably. Before Saratoga I had not really done anything that constituted regular investing.

Basically, I have been looking for an investment approach that really works. I was impressed by Saratoga and really liked that they backed themselves with a guarantee that their product and services worked, and now I can personally say that they do work.

I love the certainty that I now feel with my trades and have also been very happy with how easy the Saratoga software is to use.

My investment coach provided information that made sense to me and was also very effective in analysing what I was doing wrong and helping me to improve my results by solving one problem at a time.

On occasion I have spoken directly with Phil who offered a very realistic view on my approach.

Now-a-days I only need to spend around 30 minutes a day on my investment plan, which is what I had been planning for.

I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with Saratoga to better manage my funds in the future."
