"We travel a fair bit and I invest directly with certain issuers for my trust and SMSF. I don't like having to go to my accountant and getting 2 certificates signed each time. Cygura means I now only have to do this once for each entity, and I can be interstate." Nick (Sophisticated Investor)
“We now advise all of our sophisticated investors they can use Cygura. As an online solution it makes the whole process easier. The client can stop chasing their accountant for certificates and we can log in and check their status instantly.” Katherine, Fund Manager

“I take certifying my clients very seriously. After reviewing assets or income, I sign the form, scan a copy for file, and send the original back to my client. This takes time. Cygura is real time, keeps the record for me, and reminds me about upcoming expiries. I like to be on the front foot with my clients.” David, Accountant
