Director / Financial Planner, CFP / Office Development Manager

LI logoTrust is at the core of every relationship between a financial planner and client. It is difficult for those seeking financial advice to find an adviser that they can trust. However I believe that my existing clients are my best advocates and the long term relationships that exist with clients are the best evidence that this can be achieved.

Our focus on pre and post retirement advice meant that we have assisted many clients achieve their goal of financial independence, and these clients became strong advocates of the business.

Steve is passionate in supporting his clients to make those key financial decisions, and believes in the approach that a great financial adviser provides all the education and support required to help their clients make smarter financial decisions to live their best possible life.

Steve certainly believes that with his support, and the resources of the team at Invest Blue, that his clients do believe it’s possible to achieve their dreams, and their adviser will help them to do this.

Steve, and his wife Kerri, have three young children all growing up on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW.
