I'm passionate about helping people improve their financial position so they can concentrate on what is important to them, such as their family and realising their future personal goals. I specialise in working with people who have families to protect and those saving for retirement. I also work with people in retirement to maximise their income and obtain government benefits. Why am I able to do this? I have over 21 years experience in helping my clients reach their goals, protect their families and retire in the best possible shape. Ultimately I provide greater certainty and peace of mind about my clients' financial future. Prior to becoming a Financial Adviser I had a 17 year career in financial services working as an Economist, Banker and Fund Manager. I have 3 degrees in Accounting, Economics and Business Administration. I also have post graduate qualifications including the CFP (Certified Financial Planner) designation. All my current clients value the help my team and I have provided over the years and they can count on us to assist them and their families in years to come.
