Andrew Wiefler M.Comm.Law, B Com
Principal of Hub Wealth Management
Andrew graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Banking and Finance from the University of Canberra. He is also a registered Tax Agent. More recently, Andrew completed a Master’s Degree in Commercial Law with a specialty in taxation from Australian National University Law School.
After graduating, Andrew worked initially for seven years in a smaller advice business to build his skills in the complex areas of tax and investment management over the next few years. He became the youngest adviser to be issued with a Proper Authority to provide financial advice by Sealcorp, which is now part of St George Bank Financial Planning.
Andrew then used his unique combination of technical and investment theory and practice to become a Senior Financial Consultant with Tynan Mackenzie, where he remained for the next nine years. During this period, he advised clients on a number of complex strategic and investment issues, including, among other things, company share options issues, business succession strategies, superannuation, retirement planning, and large lump sum investment approaches.
A key element of Andrew’s work with Tynan Mackenzie was the development of a strong investment focus. He was a leading member of the Investment Committee at the firm, where he agitated strongly for an active approach that included strong consideration of tax outcomes, underlying cost, genuine risk considerations and the fundamentals of capital preservation. This was a very important role, as the firm oversaw client funds in excess of $3 billion.
Andrew maintains an extremely loyal client base due to his deep understanding of the interplay of complex investment and technical issues, combined with a strong relationship emphasis. Andrew’s clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds, including pharmaceutical companies, small business, telecommunications and senior executives. He has 20 years of experience providing tailored client advice and is a co-founder of Hub Wealth Management.
Outside of Hub Wealth, Andrew is a proud Dad with two young children. He is very active in assisting with sports coaching, and enjoys most sport – especially rugby union and cricket. He has a ready sense of humour, and leads a very active family lifestyle that includes fishing, four-wheel driving, camping and boating.
