Why are you in the finance industry?

I started in the financial service industry in 1997 and have only grown more passionate about the industry since. I want to provide professional and individualised advice for clients because I am passionate about making sure people are financially secure in each stage of their lives.

What do you do outside of work?

I love sport. I am either playing tennis or golf, or watching the Crows, or my boys play for Norwood. When sport is not on I love spending time at the beach with my wife and children.

What do you enjoy about working at Heard Financial?

It has been a joy watching Heard Financial grow into a team of wonderful people who all feel as passionate as I do about delivering exceptional service to all of our clients.

Why are you in the finance industry?

My upbringing instilled me with a great work ethic at a young age and to appreciate the value of a financial education. Most people have great money fears which are very real, so it is great to play a part to ease this anxiety.

What do you do outside of work?

As a strong advocate for well-being, outside of the office you find me at the gym, in the yoga studio, hiking in the hills or at the beach to recharge my batteries.

What do you enjoy about working at Heard Financial?

We have a great internal culture where everyone is valued and has a voice, management is very open to change and all opinions are valued. I think it is the psychological safety of not being judged coupled with all the varying skills and opinions that when mixed together result in our successful team.

Education and Accreditations

Graduate Certificate in Finance

Masters of Finance (current)

Why are you in the finance industry?

I was initially interested in saving money when I started my first job, I enjoyed seeing my bank balance grow over time and thought it would be good to help others do the same. I took an opportunity to complete a Tranieeship with a large bank completely changing my career direction. As a was exposed to more areas of finance through work I gained a strong interest in investments and advice and further undertook study to expand my skills in this area.

What do you do outside of work?

I watch a lot of US based sports including NBA, NFL and MMA. I love looking, talking and working on cars. Finally spending time with my fiancee.  

What do you enjoy about working at Heard Financial?

It is great to see how everyone at Heard Financial is client-focused with everything they do. HF has a great culture, everyone gets along and listens to each other’s ideas of how to approach a situation or improve. Having a background with big organisations sometimes the client focus gets lost. Everyone at HF has the client experience at the centre of what they do and when everyone is working toward a common goal it makes an extremely enjoyable workplace

Why are you in the finance industry?

I moved from the country over to ‘the big city’ and got a job working at a financial planning company. I didn’t really know what to expect at first, but it turns out that I found my feet quite quickly and have been in the industry ever since. I find it challenging in a good way. The feeling of helping people with their finances is very rewarding. I have grown up with finances not always being at the forefront of conversations so this was all new to me. I had no idea this is where I would end up, but I am very happy that I have.

What do you do outside of work?

My biggest hobby is sport by far. Growing up I played netball, tennis, basketball, swimming, and anything else that came around. Since moving to Adelaide I have kept playing a little basketball but my favourite is netball. If I’m not playing sport I dare say I would be watching it.

Other than sport I enjoy getting in the kitchen and baking, I find it relaxing. I think delicious food can pick someone up from a bad day, celebrate someone or is for any occasion, it just makes people happy. 

What do you enjoy about working at Heard Financial?

Wonderful people to work with, they all have a great long-term view for their clients and high priority to keep their clients happy. They are on top of all things finance, and their knowledge is fantastic. I think moving forward I will enjoy this company very much.

Why are you in the finance industry?

Growing up on a farm and watching my parents’ budget and manage their finances on two paychecks a year was something that instilled a deep respect for conservative and conscious money management in me.

What do you do outside of work?

I describe myself as a footy tragic and over the past few years developed a love for hockey. 

 

What do you enjoy about working at Heard Financial?

I have always been passionate about helping clients methodically prepare for the future and enjoy seeing the long-term difference that informed, sensible decisions make, as opposed to stock picking or punting on the share market. I love how the Heard Financial team strongly believes and actively pursues this mentality as well.
