With over 7 years of experience as a financial planner, Peter has a wealth of knowledge and experience in demystifying financial planning and helping clients understand their options for achieving their goals.

He holds a Diploma in Financial Planning, a Bachelor of Applied Finance (Financial Planning), and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional (CFP®).

Peter's passion lies in sharing his knowledge and experience with clients to help them achieve their goals.

He finds it rewarding to collaborate with clients to plan how they can achieve their goals, empowering the client and satisfying him personally, particularly when preparing and presenting comparisons and projections.

One of his good news stories involves a client who was hesitant to resign until they received reassurance from Peter about their secure retirement.

Peter's goals include growing with the business in building long-term client relationships, utilising emerging technologies to enhance the planning process, and becoming involved in training and educating the next generation of planners.

His personal work philosophy is to always be teachable, adaptable, open to other points of view, and collaborative.

At Retirewise, Peter and his team believe strongly in a collaborative experience with their clients. They view their job as planners to not only advise but also demystify, educate, and motivate the client so they feel capable of making the right financial decisions themselves.
