Since 2002

Qualifications

  • Advanced Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning)
  • Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning)

Specialisations
I like to take a more personal and active role in ensuring all clients have a full understanding & are comfortable with all the various elements of the strategies & investments in which they are involved. I enjoy keeping up to date with all elements of the share markets & associated investments & relish discussing all aspects of their portfolios with clients. I find it rewarding that by having regular honest & open communication with clients & helping them achieve their financial goals they become more of an extended family than clients. This is further reinforced by the friendly & genuine staff & the warm welcoming environment clients find at Pinnacle Financial Services.

I have lived in Newcastle since emigrating to Australia from England in early 1989. I have three women in my life, my wife Maria & my two teenage daughters, Hannah & Michaela.
