I continually see the positive impact that proper advice makes on people’s lives and future aspirations. I love the fact that I get to grow with my clients and strongly value the relationships that I make with them.

He is a passionate financial adviser with extensive experience in providing strategic investment, superannuation and wealth creation advice.

After completing his Bachelor of Commerce degree in 2008, Luke spent the next few years in London, starting his career in finance for various multi-national corporations.

In 2011, Luke returned to Sydney and entered the financial services industry as a financial planner.

Recent examples of work include:
  • Provided strategic and investment advice to a retiring small business owner to assist them in transitioning into retirement phase. I invested the proceeds of their business sale, through multiple tax structures (SMSF, Corporate, Trusts) to provide a regular income stream to meet their retirement income needs and objectives.
  • Implemented a financial plan for a client that focused on restructuring their existing assets and debts to meet their capital and income objectives. Our client was able to achieve financial freedom many years before retirement age, given the investment advice and tax structure we recommended has resulted in significant after tax outcomes.
  • Provided comprehensive personal risk advice (Life, Total & Permanent Disablement, Trauma, Income Protection) and business insurance (Key Man, Business Expenses, Buy Sell) to a client who previously had no protection but is now at the lifecycle stage where they are starting a family, has significant debt commitments and wants to ensure both his personal and business commitments are looked after if he were to pass away or become unable to work.

Who wants to be a millionaire?

An optimal strategy when planning for retirement is to eliminate all remaining personal debt, contribute as much money into super as possible and commence an allocated pension, drawing down a tax-free income to fund your retirement living costs.
