Kylie Pryce
Director / Financial Planner, CFP/ Office Development Manager

"I want to make a difference by ensuring clients feel confident when making financial decisions."

Kylie embarked on her career in financial services with AMP in 1987 where she worked in various administration roles before moving across to work in a financial planning practice in 1997 as a Paraplanner. It wasn’t long before Kylie realised she wanted to work directly with clients and in 2000 moved into a Financial Planning role in a practice in Gladstone. Kylie ended up taking over the business and in 2008 merged her financial planning business into the Invest Blue group. Kylie made the decision to merge her business with Invest Blue as she values the support and client experience that Invest Blue provides to clients.

Kylie is an active member of the local Midday Rotary Club that helps raise funds each year to help local charities as well as International projects.   She has also been on the Management Committee for Gladstone Aquatic Therapy in the capacity of treasurer for the past 15 years.

Kylie’s greatest achievements are becoming a mother and Completing a Masters of Financial Planning. Kylie enjoys keeping fit and cooking.

Chris Andersen
Financial Planner

“I want to make a difference by ensuring everyone I meet with has a better understanding of their financial and lifestyle situation, with a focus on what’s important to them. I want to empower clients to make the changes required to get the most out of life.”

Chris is a proud Gladstone local, having grown up in Boyne Island.  He is passionate about enabling his clients to have a better understanding of their financial situation and how to achieve their goals, believing this allows them to dream bigger and really see that it’s possible.

Chris is a firm believer that community organisations play a large part in bringing a community together.  His involvement through school and club based rugby league and the Gladstone Aquatic Therapy Association, among other things, help Chris feel he is giving back to a region that offers so much.
