I am a Financial Planner and SMSF Specialist Adviser™. I am serious about educating clients to take back control of their finances and write an educational blog called The SMSF Coach. In 2017 I was named in the Barron's (with The Australian newspaper) Top 50 Financial Advisers. I am on the Board of Directors of the SMSF Association. I write and speak on superannuation, retirement and small business with a focus on intergenerational wealth transfer. I was the winner of SMSF Adviser of the Year NSW - 2017 and 2018. Winner of the IFA Excellence Awards - SMSF Adviser of the Year 2020.

I work with people who are engaged and determined to be self-funded in retirement but we know the safety net strategies as well.

We believe in using the tax, super and legal systems to maximise your wealth and ensure you are structured to make the most of all opportunities. Investments often come last in such planning but we believe in a diversified asset allocation and taking the stress out of investing by having clear long-term goals driving our investment decisions. We hope to add the "sleep factor", where you can rest easy at night knowing exactly how your lifestyle will be funded in future years.
