Jason Cook

Authorised Representative*

Jason Cook has combined experience since 1995 in banking, financial services and planning industries. Jason has gained an appreciation of the value of investing having been a Financial Adviser and Company Director since 2006; and prior to that, as a Personal Adviser to a high-value portfolio of clients for one of Australia’s leading banks.

Jason is a firm believer that there is a strong, long-term relationship between financial advice and the achievement of lifetime goals and objectives. That is, everyone can benefit from having a financial “coach” to assist them in moving towards financial independence. However, this is best achieved with constant communication and monitoring so that the client has a good understanding of the strategies and how they are tracking. Jason holds a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) and is currently studying to complete an Advanced Diploma in Financial Services.
