“Being independent is a term that carries weight, so don’t be bluffed by those companies chasing better marketing with lines like ‘almost independent’, ‘independently owned’ etc. Those on the other side of the fence understand marketing kudos but don’t want to give up the easy commission money. It’s that simple.” I am a financial adviser and Director of Your Private Advisers. As an adviser I enjoy the freedom that comes with my own Australian Financial Services License, allowing me to speak freely about any strategy or investment, putting my client’s interests first. Our policy is to ease or eliminate altogether any commission wherever possible, and when we can’t, we rebate the commissions to clients periodically. Over the past few years we have given away over $60,000 worth of fees. I have worked for a number of organisations including Merrill Lynch, Deloitte, Colonial First State and the NAB, as well as running my own businesses. I have extensive financial and commercial experience from having lived and worked in Japan, the UK and Australia.

"Having a truly independent financial adviser that does not take any commissions gives us great peace of mind. Michael is very patient and approachable. He took the time to listen and understanding our goals to produce a clear snapshot of our situation and an investment strategy that worked for us. He recommended carefully research investments without any bias for product commissions and our portfolio has flourished over the past 5 years. My wife and I find financial planning quite complex but always feel relief after our meetings with Michael."
