I’m a believer that money is a tool, and not the goal. Financial Freedom is the goal. The best part of my job is learning about what this looks like to each person.

I’m a believer that money is a tool, and not the goal. Financial Freedom is the goal. The best part of my job is learning about what this looks like to each person.

Although many people say they look for a ‘bit of grey’ in a Financial Planner, Blaine embraces the fact that he is a Millennial adviser. It is for this reason he enjoys working with other millennials and young families to make money, and have fun doing it.

I’ve always had a keen interest in the stock market, and started investing when studying Finance at QUT here in Brisbane. The first company I bought was Queensland Rail (now Aurizon Holdings) when it first listed on the ASX. To me as a poor Uni student, I thought they were doing very well of me with their escalating ticket prices and I came to the conclusion that I wanted a piece of that business!

It may not have been the increasing train fares that was the reason, but in two years QR did quite well and I had made a 30% return on my initial investment. Not a bad start, and I was instantly hooked. Now I love helping clients with their own investments.

After graduating I did some work experience with a stock broking company whilst working in an electronics store selling computers. This sales job taught me a lot about taking the steps to discover each customer’s needs and requirements and providing a solution to fit.

It wasn’t until I started working with P3FP as a Paraplanner, that I realised that good financial advice was much the same. People want to be listened to and know that their needs and wants are being heard. The key is then to take away what I have learned and tailor the advice to suit their requirements and risk tolerances.

Putting the puzzle pieces together is a very satisfying part of the job.

I love sports and hanging out with friends and family. I will try to get out for a surf once a week and probably against my better judgement I’m still playing rugby with UQ (Up the Heavies).

Having spent a few years living in North America, I’ve developed an affinity for the NFL. I’m a proud “12” (Seahawks fan), and spend a little bit too much of my spare time on fantasy football.
