I believe you can do well, by doing good. A few years ago, I realised there was a disconnect between my values and what I did with my money and investments. I care about what is happening to the planet and the people around me. But I had been invested in companies causing harm to both.
Now I strive to build a Portfolio of Purpose for my family and for those clients who also feel it is important to them. Environmental, societal and governance factors have become a key consideration in portfolio construction. Investing can be used as a force for good to create change and address some of the biggest problems the world faces.
I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™and business owner, based in Canberra but spend plenty of time back in Sydney. I specialise in working with professionals and small business owners who are highly motivated to achieve their own definition of success.
I motivate and guide my clients to achieve what is important to them and to live the life of their dreams. I do this through goal setting, strategy development, action plans and regular reviews.
I'm proud to have received a number of awards in the past few years including a Financial Planning Association Best Practice Award and a dealer group Adviser of the Year award.
I have been featured in the Sydney Morning Herald, Australian Financial Review, Sky News Business TV, Financial Standard, Adviser Voice and Wealth Professional. I appeared in The Investment Series on Channel 9 in 2016, a show aimed at helping Australians get a better understanding of their financial future.
I've spoken at numerous conferences on this topic including at the Adviser Edge Summit, Securitor Annual Conference and Magnitude Think Tank.
Out of the office, you are most likely to find me on my road bike or mountain biking on Australia's best trails in Canberra. My ideal holiday is with the family at the snow (Australia or overseas - doesn't matter!).
