Client Testimonials

I have been a Tradex member since 1984, but I wish I had started even earlier. Like others in the foreign service, I became familiar with Tradex largely through word of mouth from fellow employees. The fact that Tradex was established on a completely volunteer basis by officers of the old Departments of External Affairs and Trade & Commerce and operated on an at-cost basis has always been very appealing to me.

Former Ambassador to Turkey and to Chile

When I joined the Department of in 1962, Tradex was just two years old. The driving force behind its creation was Tom Fletcher who, at that time, was the Director General responsible for the Trade Commissioner Service. He later went on to become the Assistant Deputy Minister responsible for the Tourism Group. Tom saw Tradex as a great way for both his colleagues and himself to build a strong financial future and he volunteered a huge amount of time to Tradex.

You work hard for your money, so you should get your money working hard for you.

There are many ways to invest. Choosing the right financial instruments depends on your stage of life, your risk threshold, and your personal financial goals. Effective investing strikes a balance between the potential return you want with the level of reasonable risk you are prepared to accept. Investing isn’t a gamble. It’s a matter of making informed decisions and carefully managing your money. Many investments are also based on compounding interest, so it’s important as a public servant that you put your money to work as early as possible in order to make the most of it.
