He is experienced in all facets of planning having dealt with multi-million dollar investment portfolios and corporate advice. Servicing a wide variety of clients, Ian’s clients predominantly are high net worth retirees, business owners and professionals including clients in the areas of Accounting, Medicine, Law, Rural Landholders and Farmers, Ex-City Councillors and CEOs and Directors of significant commerce.

On a pro bono basis, Ian currently supports a multi-million dollar private foundation with time, experience and guidance as a Director at a board level.
At a personal level Ian has played indoor volleyball for Qld at a National League level and still enjoys a hit of beach volleyball, going to the gym, camping and financing two very likeable but unfortunately very intelligent children (OP1 & OP2) through university.
