I started in Financial Planning in 1996 in the city of London. I’ve always loved meeting with Fund Managers, learning about money markets and how investments actually work.
Despite being a bit of a numbers and financial geek, the reason I have stayed in Financial Planning, is that I enjoy meeting people and supporting clients to achieve financial goals.
I took a break from hectic London life in 2005, and after developing and running an enterprise skills based charity in Cape Town for a few years, I moved to Australia in 2009.
By 2012, I became the Managing Director and Senior Financial Planner at my own firm, Ginn & Russ, as part of the AMP network. I had a large, successful practice, with offices in Adelaide and Alice Springs, and around 12 staff. Business was going really well, but behind the scences AMP were making changes. I knew there was an opportunity to improve my client services.
I founded Emu Wealth because I wanted to do things differently and spend more time with fewer clients; to enable me to give clients the best, most comprehensive service possible. I knew that with almost 20 years experience in financial planning, everything I had learnt in London, and Australia and other part sof the world, I could provide a great client experience.
