Hi there,

My name is Ryan, and I am a director and senior adviser at Sound Strategies, a business which focuses on the client and the strategy first.

I am passionate about protecting and growing wealth for my clients, and I enjoy the challenge of establishing a new advice relationship, as it allows me to take the emotion out of my client's situation, to assess and recommend individual strategies to help improve their position and achieve their goals (both financial and non-financial).

Outside of work, I have two daughters who are slowly but surely taking over our home / hobby farm.

After working in Melbourne for both larger institutions and boutique advice practices, my wife and I made the decision to move (back) to country Victoria to focus on work/life balance while raising our family.

My clients range from singles/mums & dads to business owners, farms, Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) and those transitioning into retirement and aged care.

Although being based in Bendigo, I have clients throughout the state (and some in bordering states) and I enjoy the travel and new experience this brings.

I am a Certified Financial Planner, a Registered Tax Adviser, and have achieved the education requirements for FASEA. In addition to this, I have additional certifications in SMSFs, Margin Lending and have worked with clients both in the provision of advice, and also the investigation of past advice.

The broad range of training and experience I have been lucky enough to gather of the years, helps me to provide holistic, individual advice that is specific to my clients' needs.
