Damien Misfud
Damien Misfud
Credit Adviser

Damien started as a mobile lender at Suncorp looking after Brisbane-based LJ Hooker offices which helped him learn the ins and outs of property finance due to the high exposure of transactions that he was involved in. At the same time, he was drawn to doing business finance for all the LJH franchise owners financing acquisitions of other real estate rent rolls and equipment. Suncorp then offered him and his team a finance franchise of LJ Hooker to work as a broker rather than a mobile lender. This was all back in 2003. For the next 6 years, he grew his team of brokers that were aligned to all the Brisbane based LJH offices that were in his franchise. In 2009 they registered the name Brisbane Financial Services and soon after setup a Financial Planning arm with Charter Financial Planning. Years later AMP acquired AXA which included Charter FP and they moved over to AMPFP in 2011. In 2018 they joined AMP Advice with the view that this would be the next big thing and changed their whole business to align with this program. In 2020, BFS partnered with Invest Blue, where Damien has taken the lead with the Lending offer.
Outside of Invest Blue, Damien is married with 4 beautiful children.

Qualifications:

  • Advance Diploma in Financial Planning
  • Commissioner of Declarations

Administrative Assistant

"Working with Invest Blue will give me an opportunity to learn and have a continuous improvement because the company is expanding as well as the processes to produce a better output to the clients. They also treat their employees like family and they don't underestimate what we are doing. They value their employees as much as they value their clients. They are also open for suggestions whether good or bad to fill the gap to all grey areas of the process."

Love has a Bachelor's degree in Management Accounting. She was an intern in Regent Management Property Inc. during her college days and was assigned in the Accounting and Finance Department. In this role she was responsible for updating transactions on a daily basis in their accounting system. She likes working in the financial industry because aside from becoming financially literate, it gives her the opportunity to manage her own finances as well. She wants to know how insurances work and she believes that helping people with their finances makes such a great impact because she does not only learn but also helps make her clients' lives easier.

During her spare time, Love usually watches Youtube videos relating to travel and lifestyle. She's also fond of watching Korean Dramas and hanging out with her friends during weekends.
