Andrew entered the investment and financial industry in 1984 from owning his own business as a Land and Business Agent. In 1989 he founded his own Securities Licencee, Financial Management Services (FMS) as a joint venture with a Chartered Accountancy practice.
That year he was elected State Chairman and Board member of ASIFA.
In 1993 he established Symetry Ltd which he developed to a stage where in 1999 he negotiated a joint venture with Perpetual Trustees. That money management platform administered over $1.7bill of client’s monies.
In 2000 FMS was one of the earliest adopters of FinaMetrica’s risk profiling system; implementing it for all existing and new clients during the next 5 years.
From that positive experience Andrew became a strong advocate for the system and he became a FinaMetrica shareholder and director in 2008.
Since 1984 he has held directorships with three other successful fund management companies as well as authoring two subjects for Deakin University , the Philosophy of money management and Construction of investment portfolios.
