A Forgetful and Careless Financial Advisor
John Krambeer is an unreliable and an unprofessional financial advisor. I don’t recommend his services to anyone. When I hired him I expected him to be at least punctual and sophisticated however he lacks both of these qualities.
John is the founder of Camden Capital. He started that company in 2004 and before that, he used to work at Merrill Lynch. The guy has extensive experience in investment management, and I think because of that, he has become narcissistic. There is no way someone would hire him after seeing his true behaviour. John needs to learn a little about decency and memory.
The guy is so forgetful that he wouldn’t even remember what the meeting is about. It’s absurd.
I have never seen such a careless investment manager in my whole life except him.
For our first meeting he was 30 minutes late. I did not mind it that much but I should have known then that it’s his habit to be late to meetings. Even when he arrived late he didn’t apologize for it, which felt a little disrespectful.
In that meeting there were 4 people John his associate me and my I I partner. We all noticed how John was behaving during that entire ordeal. While the three of us were discussing my family’s assets and investments, John was busy doing something on his phone. Again, I should have known that it’s his unprofessional behaviour not something temporary.
He didn’t participate in most of our conversations at that meeting. I realised what a mistake I had made by hiring him at our second meeting.
In our second meeting, he did the same thing he had done in the first one. He was busy doing something on the phone and wasn’t listening to me when I talked. When I pointed out that he should be more attentive, he didn’t listen even then!
I had requested him to look at some investments and let me know what he thought of them a day later. He was so aloof in that meeting that he forgot completely about this conversation. When I asked him about it, he didn’t remember any detail about that meeting. I can’t explain how mad I felt because of his disrespectful behaviour. To be honest, I had hired his company because I thought he would turn out to be a professional, but so far, he had only disappointed me.
I had hired John so his company would handle my family’s investments and I wouldn’t have to worry about them. But even though some people in his company showed promise, John never really did anything. I had to constantly ask them about any developments myself and John never really knew what was going on. Whenever I would ask him about my family’s assets and investments, he would dodge the question and give me a vague answer.
When I fired John Krambeer and Camden Capital
As I’ve mentioned multiple times here, John seemed like the worst professional but things got worse when I had requested him to get me a real estate property. He was supposed to find me a suitable property to invest in and it was a time-sensitive issue. But I didn’t hear from him for days.
When days went by and I didn’t get a word from him, I contacted him only to find out that he had FORGOTTEN about it COMPLETELY! He didn’t even realise his mistake. He kept making excuses and gave me vague responses like he always did, so fired him and Camden Capital that day.
I can only tolerate incompetence for so long. His company tried to get my business many times after I fired them but I had made up my mind. I’m now working with another financial advisor and I’m quite happy with their services.
Regarding John Krambeer, I don’t think I would ever work with that jackass. He has no sense of professionalism and has a terrible work ethic. It would be better if he just calls it quits and changes his profession because right now, he is nothing more than a piece of trash.
The entire experience of working with him was too painful. I had no idea it would be so terrible to work with him. His unprofessional work ethic is intolerable and I don’t recommend his services to anyone. You would benefit more by hiring a chimp to handle your finances than hiring him.
