Commerce and Philosophy

Current Occupation & Career Details I am the owner and managing director of Wynyard Park Private Wealth, a family office based in the Sydney CBD. We provide investment and financial planning services. In comparison to many other firms, we operate with a relatively small number of high net worth clients. The smaller number of clients per adviser enables us to provide a highly personalised service to each client.

I started in the financial services industry in 1986 working on the floor of the Australian Stock Exchange. I then spent a few years building my financial markets experience as a futures and options trader on the floor of the Sydney Futures Exchange.

Since 1993, I have concentrated specifically on providing private wealth management services (wealth creation and preservation) to institutional investors and private clients. I am committed to helping my clients achieve their lifestyle and financial goals by providing comprehensive financial advice which is appropriate to their needs and objectives.
