I have always been passionate about personal finance and investing. Through becoming a Financial Adviser I have been able to fulfil this passion by providing personal advice to clients and pass along valuable knowledge of financial strategy and theory. This allows clients to get tailored advice assisting them and their families to attain financial freedom. I place a great emphasis on building long term relationships through regular reviews and open dialogue with clients, ensuring they remain on track to achieve their goals. I also write a blog and teach at Kenmore Community Education on Investments & Managing Your Money. This is to help educate the public about personal finance and their financial behaviours. Outside of the office, I am a self-confessed fitness fanatic having participated in the ‘Tough Mudder’ Run and exercise daily. I also enjoy travelling and meeting new people, immersing myself into other cultures, having lived overseas on a student exchange program.

"Louis has a great knack of making everything easy to understand. As someone who previously had very little understanding of finances and superannuation, Louis’ friendly & reassuring manner puts me at ease, without ever feeling patronised or talked down to. I would not hesitate to recommend Louis to anybody, his efficiency and professionalism is second to none."

"Louis came highly recommend to us. After experiencing his honestly, promptness, and professionalism, we too can not recommend him highly enough. Everything was by the book, and we were never pressured in to any products or services. Everything we looked at was clearly explained, with all the options, as unbiased as possible. Once meeting Louis, you'll realise he is FA because he genuinely enjoys helping people with their finances."

"From day one we have and continue to find Louis's approach to his profession commendable. He has always done what he says he will do when he says he will do it, and follows up accordingly. If he has not been sure about something he says so,finds out, and gets back to us. Louis has very good customer relationship skills, good eye contact at meetings. He leaves us with the feeling that he is genuinely doing his best to look after us. We have recommended a close friend to see Louis and he is equally satisfied."

"Excellent Adviser as I find finances hard to understand and Louis explained so well. It gave me confidence and reassurance. So much so that I recommended him to run a course, so others can benefit. I am sure before long he will be so sort after that he will have to turn clients away. I feel it is important for every person to understand finances. Louis was excellent at explaining and answering questions."

"Louis strange found, combined and manage my super in a way where I could choose and see in more ways then I thought possible. The options that he presented me with that choose have grown despite turbulent times in the market. After proving his worth, honesty and financial knowledge, which surpasses my own by a great deal. I have invested other capital with him in different ways. I am happy to pay me fees, which are extremely low, consider what high service I have had and I recommend him to others, sincerely"
