It was during Brian’s days as a bush pilot and airline pilot (1973-1981) and the period he served as branch secretary on the executive of the Australia Federation of Air Pilots and secretary for the Papua New Guinea Air Pilots Association, that he became involved in assessing investment opportunities offered to pilots.
This in turn led to the development of investment strategies that best served the interests of the investor rather than those of the promoter. This led to the philosophy that underpins the company that he foundered in 1992. This company is believed to be the first purely fee for service Financial Services Company promoting direct ownership of investment assets. This company evolved into financial Grace Pty Ltd and for many years has provided strategies to counter natures mischief for the rural communities.
Along with Brian’s work experience and qualifications, he has served on several Boards including Qantas Founders Memorial Ltd, Quality Practice Accreditation Pty Ltd and the Rural Health Medical Infrastructure Trust, has five published works and has produced and presented a number of investment articles for the Australian Technical Analysts Association.
