Many years ago I briefly entertained joining Suncorp’s Guardian dealergroup, thank god I made the right choice and ran, as evidenced when ASIC stepped in finally to examine it all and they shuttered the business. I remember my disbelief at the cowboys they had as advisers and also staff were a mixed bunch, one particular clown Mario or Maruchi somebody-or-other was a standout clueless git.
