Through the support of tailored advice we are able to help people realise their dreams and plans by creating belief that it’s possible.

It’s not just about our clients finances, but about helping them define what they want out of life and helping them achieve it.Paul has been a financial planner with AMPFP for over 18 years and prior to that gained experience in banking, lending and real estate roles. This has resulted in more than 30 years’ experience within the financial services industry. Paul has been integral in the growth of the Invest Blue business from an insurance and superannuation business in Armidale to one of the leading financial service businesses within Australia. With an opportunity to establish a Queensland office in 2006, Paul and his family moved from Armidale to Brisbane. Paul is passionate about the delivery of a consistent client experience through the support of tailored financial advice, systems and processes. He has been actively involved in the development of the Invest Blue brand and believes, living Invest Blues’ culture and core values is what sets Invest Blue apart from their competitors. Paul is dedicated to community and his children’s education. Having three girls attend St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School in Brisbane, Paul has held the position of Director of the schools foundation and is actively involved in the schools rowing programme. Paul enjoys many outdoor and sporting activities. He is an avid Cowboys supporter, having grown up in Far North Queensland playing rugby league for both the Kangaroos football club in Cairns and the Roosters on the Atherton Tablelands. Paul enjoys spending time with family and friends and also travelling.  He thrives on both personal and team challenges. Challenges include the Tour De Rocks, a mountain bike ride from Armidale to South West Rocks that raises funds to support a cure for Cancer.  Paul is also looking forward to participating in the upcoming AMP Future 2 road bike ride from Melbourne to Adelaide which supports children with cancer and is being held in late 2014.
