I found Finvin while I was looking for a fee only planner. I read a lot of good things online about Melvin and I found they were very well founded.

I am an NRI customer, with specific needs. I find the Mr. Melvin always gave me impartial and clear advice while helping me identify my goals . I always thought it was necessary to have a face - face meetings in order to establish a professional relationship and trust but consulting with Mr.

Melvin has removed that notion. He is knowledgeable,  quick to answer emails and queries (even over great distances and time zones) and helped me exit from some toxic financial products for which I am quite indebted to him.

I started my associated with Melvin Joseph in the year FY17.  I found about Melvin through one of the facebook groups where he was highly recommended.  After speaking to a few other financial planners, I decided to go ahead with Melvin.  I found him to be affable, patient and benevolent.  He collected all my details over email and phone.  He has provided few recommendations to me and I have started implementing the same.  He has also answered quite a few queries of mine which were beyond the regular financial instruments that he deals with so that it could help my planning aspects. Hoping to have a successful financial journey with him.

Came to know about Melvin through an office colleague who had availed his services. After some initial apprehensions, decided to go ahead with utilizing Melvin's expertise. Melvin comes across as an honest, down to earth and a practical man when it comes to financial planning which I guess has comes from years of experience. He imbibed in me goal oriented financial planning which was an important learning for me. He suggested a few changes to my existing portfolio and I am starting to see the results of the same. He has been there for any queries any time. I would recommend him to anyone who wants their financial planning to be in order and working for them"
