15 Yrs Experience
Chatswood, NSW 2067

I commenced working in the financial services industry in 1994. I've been a financial adviser and principal owner of our Planning practice since 2009.  

Prior to joining the Financial Planning industry, I spent 14 years working in Global Investment Banking. The majority of the time as an Equities & Convertible Bond Dealer to Institutional and Hedge Fund clients. For over 9 years, I was based in Tokyo, New York and London. I graduated university with a Bachelor of Business (Finance and Accounting).

I believe my business is unique due to strong focus on genuine financial and life planning. My extensive back ground in financial markets and deep understanding of investment risk provides a powerful skill set to build high quality, well diversified investment portfolios, helping clients to achieve their financial goals and assisting them in realising their life dreams and aspiration.
