Follow your own path
When Principal Partners decided to become a stand-alone business, it was to enable them to follow their own charter of independence. Jonathan Jackson speaks with Matthew Morley about how this independence allows the company to really get to know their clients’ personal and financial needs.

April Baker
April Baker, wife and mother of two sons, is currently planning her latest exhibition. “It’s a display of charcoal imagery that stirs emotions lying dormant within”.

April describes her images as sentimental, happy and playful, with an inner source of energy that tugs at the viewer’s heartstrings. This is an apt description of her previous sell out exhibition “Loved Bears” which featured wonderfully emotive charcoal drawings of pre-loved teddies whose patched fur and missing button eyes tell a tale of years of love and devotion from countless children.

Taking stock of your wealth
A holistic approach to financial management is the best way to wealth creation and it is that approach that has made ABS Morgans so successful. Jonathan Jackson speaks with senior investment advisor Michael Mansfield about football, wealth strategy, asset allocation and surviving the GFC.

It was a family holiday that peaked Michael Mansfield’s interest in finance and broking.

“My father took the whole family to the US for four weeks. It was a significant moment for me, going to America and Disneyland, and I remember talking to dad about it and him saying the holiday was based on some investments he made in gold and the share market. So, that interest in finance was always there.”
