"I started working with OPES in the latter part of 2019.  Since day one, administration and follow up has been very quick and efficient.  There is a good team in place to answer all questions which has been useful for me as some of the product structures are new to me. The application process is straight forward with minimal paperwork.  The products offer some interesting opportunities in the current environment."
“I cannot rate the team at Opes Distribution highly enough. They are very professional,respond to queries in a very efficient and timely manner and generally assist you in concluding the deal.”
