I am the Queen Ant. I am a challenger; I point things out that others don’t. I have an intention to teach. I see potential in you that you don’t see yourself. My job is to cut through the bull ---- and make you be there to participate, to plan.
I was a Secondary school Teacher for 10 years and coordinator of Year 7. In the late 1980’s I was the first & only female agency manager for all insurance companies for 5 years that ran a male & female sales division in all of Australia and New Zealand. It was very lonely being a female during this era.
I have been in the industry since 1987 and have gone through 3 corrections of the market. My most successful years in the business have been in the recessionary times. This is uncommon in our industry. My clients have been well educated to stay in the market and understand the importance diversifying. It’s not the timing of in and out of the market, but how long you stay in the market.
If you had to describe me you would probably use the words colorful, solid, funny and caring. I go out of my way not to look like a planner. Sway away from suits, love variety and my shoes.
"Once met, never forgotten.”
On a serious note I surround myself with diligent staff, process, exactness and technical prowess. I want clients to feel secure. When I am interviewing I am not disturbed. Ring or email the office they will help you. Please don’t ring my mobile. My un-divided attention to you is of paramount importance.
We cater for all clients’ needs and age groups. Pinant now has advisers that are younger than me by 15 years! Ugh... how old am I!!!!! :)
I have specialized in SMSF, Property Strategy, and Business & Personal Succession Planning. My other advisers cater for all other planning needs, personal insurance and budgeting.
We cater for all ages & needs.
Gina has given me advice in areas relating to my superannuation, life insurance and income protection. Gina has always been able to explain everything in a clear and concise way. Her knowledge and expertise is fantastic. She was even able to help me fight a wrong judgement and determination by Centrelink which saw me get my money returned. I feel very confident in recommending Gina and Pinant for all your financial needs. I always receive full care and attention when I have needed it.
Having worked in the Banking industry for 40+ years in the Investment section and IT Management, I am very much aware of Finance. As such prior to meeting Gina I knew I was in trouble with my portfolio not being diversified anywhere near enough and that I would be in trouble if I left it the way it was. Having looked up the AMP website for a Financial Planner that was close to home, I located a lady called Gina Luke. After arranging to meet with Gina, I found she was a very astute business woman who was bold and courageous and prepared to make a difference. Gina is prepared to back herself and prepared to have a go. Gina was able to communicate to me in a crystal clear way the vision and purpose of her Company and how it could help me prosper and grow which was extremely important to me. Gina took pride in being able to teach me about cash flow/income, budgeting and diversification of my portfolio. She was able to put in place a very tax effective strategy that is going to help me for many years to come. The advice I have received from Gina on Taxation and Capital Gains Tax has been invaluable. Gina also taught me how to make my assets grow. Through the planning Gina has done with my Portfolio my assets have grown immensely. I couldn't be happier. Gina is a very knowledgeable lady. Gina has taught me to make the most of the situation when there is a correction in the market and not worry, which is what I was doing. With her infectious and bubbly personality, I am able to totally relax knowing I am in good hands. Nothing is too hard for Gina. Gina is an extremely caring type of person, she has always been there for me…What you see is what you get, you can’t ask for more than that in a person let alone your very clever Financial Planner!!! I have recommended Gina to my friends and family as I know Gina will be able to help them as much as she has helped me.
