Director/Private Client Adviser

Hi there. I’m Nathan Lear and I am a Private Client Adviser, Director and equity partner in Hewison Private Wealth – an award winning independent financial planning firm.

I came on board with Hewisons as part of their graduate mentoring program in 2007 and loved it so much that I’m still here.  

I’m driven by working with my clients to devise sound investment strategies and financial plans. Seeing my clients achieve their financial goals is something I thrive on.

I have considerable experience in all facets of financial planning strategy, investment markets, superannuation and financial management. And I’ve had many years of experience in the active management of Hewison Private Wealth’s private clients including self managed superannuation funds (SMSF) and family groups.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and keeping fit. I love playing sport as much as I love watching it.
