I've operated my own Financial Planning business since 2006 and am committed to protecting, managing and growing my clients’ wealth – taking the stress out of their lives and giving them comfort that this is being taken care of for them. Together with our enthusiastic and driven local team, our continued aim is to provide non-judgemental, ethical and personalised ongoing advice and service to our existing clients as well as to new clients that fit into our practice.    In licencee terms, we have partnered our business with RI Advice Group who have been providing advice since 1979. So we are a small local business at heart, but have institutional support in terms of specialist & technical expertise, and access to a professional investment research team all working as an extension to our business keeping us informed and up to date.

"When my husband retired in 2015, on the recommendation of a friend we made an appointment to see Andrew at Personal Wealth Solutions. The initial consultation was free, lengthy and unrushed, and our plans for financial planning and needs in retirement were discussed in depth. Consequently, we engaged the services of Andrew Ghea to oversee our portfolio and keep abreast of financial planning as discussed. When I suddenly lost my husband in 2020, I doubly realised the huge value of having a well informed, up to date professional guiding me through the most difficult time of my life as my financial plans were expertly reassessed. How do I rate my experience? Helpful staff A+ Availability A+ Financial advice, planning and guidance A+ Recommendation A+"

"I have been a client of PWS for 5 years. Andrew takes care of our investments and super for both myself and my husband. We are a young couple with two young children so money management isn’t our best quality. So having Andrew is a god send. He takes the stress away from managing our finances. Andrew is an honest and straight forward kind of gentleman. He doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to investing and taking care of your future. We always look forward to our yearly catch ups. He is easily contactable day or night and gets back to you within a few hours of being contacted. We will definitely be staying with pws for many years to come."
