My name is Rik Arendsen and I've been an adviser at Aspirations Wealth for over 15 years. I'm also one of the majority owners. My goal at Aspirations Wealth is to help successful people live an inspired life by providing clarity and financial freedom.
I've loved investing in shares and property since my mid 20's but I also have a passion for behavioral psychology, and my role as a wealth adviser allows me to really add value to clients who need clarity and control when looking at their financial situation.
I am married with two children aged 23 and 21. Ten years ago I decided to achieve one of my long-held aspirations – to learn the acoustic guitar.… and yes, you can hear me playing in the office from time-to-time!
Rik balances professionalism and a friendly personal touch in his client relationship. He always has time for full explanations and questions. Rik and his team provide a very efficient, timely service and sound financial advice.
From our first meeting with Rik we have felt completely at ease and confident in the steps taken re our finances.
Rik’s communication is excellent and he goes to extra lengths to ensure you understand everything that is being discussed.
He is professional in every dealing and we alway have a terrific sense of confidence after each meeting.
I have been a client of Riks for over 13 years during which time Rik has always listened to my needs and created a plan to enable me to achieve my financial goals. Rik is a good communicator and is happy to explain time and time again complex issues in a common sense way. He likes to be challenged when discussing investment options and appreciates any input from his clients. Would happily recommend Rik.
I've known Rik since he was born as I am his oldest sister. When we were kids, mum gave us plastic money and we played shops and occasionally he would buy some plastic apples and bananas from me. Little did I know then that he would go on to become such a thoughtful financial adviser. Rik has a keen and genuine interest in understanding client's real needs and ambitions and I highly recommend him (disclaimer - even though he is my brother)!
Rik is calm and careful to explain the background to his advice, clearly presenting options for decision and detailing the implications of each choice. Paperwork is always meticulously prepared. More than anything, Rik’s value is his ability to establish a calm approach that minimises anxiety about the future. We always feel relaxed and confident after Rik visits.
