What Australians want is, life should be fair and equitable. They want to be treated with respect by politicians, the law, big business, their colleagues and friends. This is called by Aussies as "a-fair-go".

So unlike many other countries in the world today, everyone in Australian has a right to stand up and frankly give their point of view. Below are articles and newsletters written by James Cagney sharing his opinions on politics, business, immigration policy, the economy and daily life and living in Australia.  

If you are thinking about immigrating to Australia or or investing in Australia you must read these because they will give you an unbiased view of what is happening in Australia.

If you are living and working in Australia you need to take a moment from your busy day and get a realistic view of what is happening to your future. We all have two choices: We can make a living or you can design a life. It's time for you to take control of your own destiny and stop leaving it to the politicians who are only interested in making policy that will get them elected for another term of office. They are not interested in the long term future of Australia or your future they are more interested in appeasing the masses and enticing the electorate to vote them into power again through short term stimulus and promises.

We will give you $ 500 (Five hundred Australian dollars) if we are unable to show you how to:

  •  Save money on your mortgage, and/or

  •  Pay your mortgage off sooner, and/or

Willie BirkenstockNSW, Australia (Immigration Client) Hi James, It will be an honour my friend to use me as a testimonial. You are most welcome. You don't realize what you and Shelagh have done for us. We were both totally lost and would never have made it without your great help. I have purchased my plane ticket and I leave on the 29th of this month.

Stephan and Androa Bruwer, Queensland Australia (Immigration Client) We would like to thank Shelagh and James for the help and guidance in a stressful time, we could not have asked for more, they have been thorough from the start, guiding us through the steps towards gaining our permanent resident status and now finally we are waiting for the date of the ceremony for our citizenship. We opted for the full service and James and Shelagh was in touch through emails and phone calls to get everything set up for the initial application process.  There were masses of paperwork, Photostat copies, bank statements, financial statements and certificates, James made it clear as to what was needed, at what stage and what to keep for later stadium.  I will highly recommend their services to anybody who is looking to immigrate to Australia.

Nina & Raul Sauz, Sydney, Australia 2017 (extract only and full testimonial available on request). We had the pleasure meeting James Cagney from Asset Finance Services earlier this year. He invited Raul and me to a do a review of our current mortgage and debts and talk about our financial goals for the future. We had never thought of owning an investment property and we were extremely nervous. As we bought off- the-plan and being nervous new investors we wanted to see our investment property  when it was completed. We are looking forward to seeing James this year, as part of our Client for Life program, to show us how we have progressed towards our financial goals.
