Service in general has been excellent and timely, but advice on banking have not been sufficiently informed.

It could be better if step-by-step procces was advised. That way it would really reduce time required for all, and alow customer to prepare all documents in advance.
but, all together, support from SFM and response was great.
Thank you.
