Director/Private Client Adviser

I’m Simon and I am a Private Client Adviser, Director and equity partner in Hewison Private Wealth.

I’ve been with Hewison’s for over 10 years. Yes, it’s a long time with the one wealth creation firm but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Working within an independent financial planning practice aligns with my personal values around integrity and ethics. It also means I have the scope to provide my clients with the best solution for them as individuals.

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 clients including self managed superannuation funds (SMSF) and family groups.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my young family and catching up with friends.
