James Taylor
Dip.FS (Financial Planning), B.Bus Economics & Finance / Senior Financial Planner
Listening to and understanding a client’s wants and needs, helping them formulate a financial path forward, and seeing the benefits over time is what it's all about. This is a challenging but ultimately rewarding profession where people place their trust in us, and we work hard to ensure we repay that faith with financial certainty and peace of mind. Obviously we need to stay on top of strategies, products and constant regulatory changes that impact clients, but the key to success is having a deep understanding of the clients ultimate goals, and often helping them understand what their ultimate goals look like. This is achieved through asking the right questions, and actually listening to the answers! The challenge then becomes devising the right strategy for the client and working with them to effectively implement that strategy. Away from work, I’m still thinking about work! When I’m not in the office, I’ll generally be training for some crazy endurance event. Having done the Melbourne Ironman, North Face (50km trail run), Three Peaks (235K bike ride), I’m always on the lookout for the next challenge. If I’m not working or training, I’ll either be having a beer or two, or watching a movie

Hamish Clark
Senior Financial Planner & Aged Care Specialist, B. Bus (Financial Planning)
For Hamish, financial planning is about helping people make the most of today and plan for a better tomorrow. Hamish strives to understand each of his clients lifestyles, goals and needs whilst showing them how to achieve dreams that they didn’t know were possible. He believes that asking the right questions to really get a feel for what makes them tick and their relationship with money is critical to developing the right financial strategy and plan. It’s Hamish’s ability to help keep his clients on track that saw him become a finalist at The Young Financial Planner of the Year awards last year. When he’s not helping people build and preserve wealth, he’s either at F45 working on his overall fitness or undoing the hard work at the newest burger joint.
