One International City Life- Scam!

7 of 7 One International reviews

One International City Life is a new offshore IFA practice based in the UAE.

They can be found in 1)Abu Dhabi, in the Emirates Tower, Sheikh Hamdan Street, 2) Dubai, Villa 738, Jumeirah Beach Road.

Jason Noble: Owner/MD One International City Life.

Jason Noble is a fraudster/***-artist who now operates One International City Life. He is the MD. His previous roles include Area Manager at De Vere and Partners where he easily made £400,000 per annum tax-free and Vice President at Globaleye. He holds a degree in Art and Photography from Coventry University (Polytechnic) and no financial qualifications. In fact, he is rather proud of the fact that he does hold any relevant qualifications or awards.

Easily recognised, Noble, is very short approximately 5'6" or put another way, he is a dwarf. He has brilliant white teeth and a severe aversion to sunscreen; therefore he has a certain "˜Sammy-Davis Junior' quality about him. He is a pathetic excuse for a man.

Prior to deciding to become an IFA Noble worked in the UK as a skiing instructor and an office worker at a security firm. He has two daughters very similar in age, by two different women. Class.

He is extremely manipulative and calculating. Beware.

He was dismissed from DV&P for bullying subordinates, blocking commission payments, stealing clients from colleagues and acting in a non-compliant, self-satisfying manner. He held this position for roughly two years.

He poached a number of his former team to work with him at Globaleye. He was later dismissed for similar reasons to the above, a mere 12 months later. A majority of his team followed him, yet again. Except for Jennifer Owens, who remained at Globaleye, despite their personal relationship.

Most of his contacts originated from the contact he made who held a senior position within Allied Pickfords. A company that specialises in relocating expatriates around the world. Therefore the insider had the very personal information of countless new arrivals in the UAE. Noble successfully utilised this private information to his advantage, the 'sharing' of which would constitute a contravention of the data protection act. This is ethically unsound and the insider was dismissed from the company as a result.

The ruthless tactics he employs are Machiavellian to say the very least. His modus operandi is simple; hit the client for as much as they can afford for as long as possible. Anything short of that is a poor result.

Furthermore, without the appropriate qualifications and the absence of a "˜proper' FS firm on his CV, he does not have the knowledge, experience or intuition that comes from such a combination. His overall level of qualification is inadequate, so much so that he would not be able to acquire a trainee position in a reputable FS firm, yet he is the MD of a firm in the UAE.

He recruits (not dissimilar to DV&P, Globaleye, etc,.) sales people. Not IFAs. He has no respect for the profession and therefore no respect for actual professionals within the realm of FS. For example, one of his "˜senior relationship managers', Darren Preece, is a 22 year old with no formal academic qualifications, no financial qualifications and no proper work experience (met Noble at DV&P and has been loyal ever since). He is a telesales coordinator who works like a dog with little understanding of what he's actually selling. The work ethic cannot be questioned; he is little more than a simple lad from Liverpool who is highly impressionable. Noble relies on his keen ability to manipulate such people to his own advantage.

Noble's behaviour at the recent Amber Lounge function following the Abu Dhabi F1 GP was nothing short of hysterical. Again he was masquerading as a successful IFA that has recently gone into business for himself. Demonstrating yet another disgraceful bastardisation of the truth.

This post is intended to shed light on the disgusting practices of offshore IFAs, such as Noble and as a result I strongly urge expatriates in the UAE amongst other offshore destinations to avoid dealing with such individuals and their companies.

Noble will be making a fortune, don't let him fatten his mattress with your savings!

Jason Noble from "The one group" has now teamed up with Allen Davis who is one of the biggest scam artist from London. Jason does not have any licence he is in serviced offices in JLT and selling African land we all know about that scam.
Allen Davis use to run Capital Alternative Group with Steve Graham from Advance global trading these guys will go to no end to get your money into there pockets.
Stay well clear of "The one Group"

Jason Noble apparently read graphic design or the likes at university in the uk yet if you google "gold man with magnifying glass" the second image is none other that the great design work of Mr Noble. Or is it... It appears that One International's logo, "designed" by the CEO, is about as genuine as... Let's hope the logo is not a reflection of the authenticity of the company...

Haha. No need to do anything more than ask to see the company licence and registration documents to know you dealing with a professional (and I don't mean a professional financial advisor!!) Mr Noble is building a global empire. Just ask him... :-D

Jason runs the fastest expanding advisory groups in the world, not just AD.

Money is no object to a successful businessman like Jason: Bills are paid, licenses are in order, and advice is fully compliant ;-)

First question has he paid his staff all over the world. An investigation might show a truly different picture of Jason Noble. There is no smoke without fire.
Has anyone seen his FSA licence that might be interesting!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have found these comments very amusing. For all you Noble bashers, why don't you actually detach yourselves from you mums nipple so you can actually grow up, get a life and stop fixating on someone who you clearly have no influence over and who evidentially does not pay any attention to you what so ever. As for the uae oracle loser... What can I say apart from it is clear to see that you have mental health issues. From your first posting to recently it really does show that you are either jealous of Jason Noble or you are in love with him. Your post randomly change throughout each and every comment. In fact if I did not know better I would say over the last couple of months, some *** has tried to claim that they are uae oracle but it actually isn't. Only because at the beginning it actually looks like an intelligent person has wrote the post but after that it just looks like some jealous prat / broken hearted *** is trying to claim uae orcale glory. Get a life hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Once again, please accept my apologies. I have a split personality disorder and I have been off my medication for a while now. I will no doubt write more conflicting comments so may I suggest that you completely bypass anything that you see that has username assigned to. I am not an *** I am just mentally ill/ challenged. Again, please accept my deepest apologies. I am hoping at some point I will have my issues under control

This post is an absolute joke, anyone that reads this and actually takes this seriously must be mad, the industry that one international are part of would be seen anywhere else in the world as a professional industry, but because of sad individuals that have nothing better to do that than slag competitors off and bring the industry down, if all of the companies in the UAE just got on with what they set up to do and that’s provide advice to expats and stopped slagging each other off on websites like this, then maybe expats might trust us more, you can look up any company on here, DeVere, AES, Global Eye and so on and nearly every company has something written about them, this web site is a joke as its meant to be a complaint sight about a bad experience with a company and all the blogs are personal vendettas against certain people.

I know Jason Noble Very well and I think the original comment from UAE Oracle is a joke, your obviously someone that has failed to work with Jason or jealous at the fact he worked his way up to management at DeVere then became VP at Global eye and now owns his own company, if you spent more time making yourself successful instead of writing **** about people who work there *** off to provide his lovely daughters a better life, then you might be so busy working you wouldn’t be jealous, also know people that work with Jason and he is too kind, he has lost thousands from helping people in the past, paying their rent, bailing them

The previous post was not written by me. Please ignore.

Lucy, try a different firm, perhaps one that doesn't have such a high labour turnover. There are lots of jobs going at OI because the average 'new hire' leaves after a short stint.

There are some decent firms out there, but you will have to do your homework as I will not make recommendations.

Please accept my apologies to you all. All that I have said about Jason Noble is a complete farce and my only defence is that my envy got the better of me. Jason is both a lovely and wonderful man and is also a extremely talented IFA / MD. Jason Noble is a guy that we should all look up to and not pass judgement. Please accept my sincere apologies.

@Lucy -If you're able to write business you'll be fine. If not, it would seem you can vent your frustration online...

Lucy did you go out to Dubai, I have had a similar offer and I am trying to research the company, Noble Wealth, I noticed that some of owners also worked at GlobleEye and One International, so I am hoping that this is not also going down this line. :upset

Many thanks

We get it.

1) The UAE is comparatively unregulated.

2) Some of your mob didn't make quite as much as you were promised.

Leave it at that.

This page provides a pretty thorough character assassination of at least two individuals, but to what end? None. Some very personal and unpleasant things have been posted, that in all honesty don't have anything to do with either 1) or 2).

If you feel that the best use of your time (and your questionable qualification) is to troll through cyberspace shooting off unpleasantries, then that it itself does not indicate a *** of a lot about expat retirement or planning. It demonstrates a group of twisted and bitter individual best left alone (to their trolling!)

I love the way that people get on here and slag off the likes of Jason Noble. Do any of you incompetent idiots realise that every time you log on, click this page or write anything about him you are actually making him money?
For all you people who have mentioned about him being a ***, please do list your qualifications and experience along with exactly how much business you have written and please do only state what you can back up as anyone can write any old drivel.
If you actually spent more time minding your own business and earning your own money then you would not look like such SAP's who have nothing better to do.
I am aware that the majority of you people who are writing about him are also rather ugly but when are you going to wake up and realise that jealousy is making you look seriously ugly and the best plastic surgeon in the world couldn't make you look any better with that jealousy look plastered all over your face.
For any of you who have previously commented that are actually making more money than Jason Noble and are still around to tell the tale then this does not include you... For the rest of you please just get back on Jeremy Kyle and stop boring the rest of the world with you bitter comments because of 100% jealousy.
