Phillip Richards

Managing Director and Financial Advisor
A message from Phillip Richards

Ever since I started working in the world of financial planning, I have gained enormous satisfaction out of helping my clients to achieve their life goals. So many people reach their mid to late career having done very little financial planning, often having avoided doing so simply because they find the process too daunting. When I’m able to help lift the veil and provide professionals and soon-to-be retirees with financial clarity, their sense of direction (and often relief) is hugely rewarding.

I grew up a country boy and made my first personal investment at the age of 18. I continued to grow my portfolio and purchased my first property when I was 21. It was around that time that I moved to Perth to study a Bachelor of Commerce with majors in financial planning and accounting. I subsequently completed a Diploma of Financial Services and joined one of Australia’s major banks, working my way up to a position as a senior financial planner.

My seven years with the bank gave me invaluable experience across a wide range of areas including tax-effective investment and retirement planning strategies. However, while I learnt a lot about effective financial planning, I also became much clearer about how I thought planning should be done. I always felt that planning could be performed in a way that was more transparent and fairer to clients, particularly when it came to service and fees.

When I eventually decided to go out on my own and established Endorphin Wealth Management, I was determined that I would provide financial advice in the way I thought it should be done. Importantly, we operate under a non-institutionally owned license, which allows us to provide non-aligned, unbiased advice driven purely and simply by what’s best for our clients.

At Endorphin, our basic aim is simple: that our clients’ story comes first and that what we do should help them feel good about their financial future. While we obviously focus on financial objectives, we understand that finances aren’t everything. We make it a priority to consider the broader picture: ‘life’ goals as well as financial ones. We know that if we can get someone’s finances in good shape, it will be much easier for the rest to fall into place.

These days, my personal portfolio comprises Australian and international shares as well as multiple properties in Melbourne and Perth. I’ve also recently completed my Masters of Business Administration (MBA). I look forward to providing financial clarity to more and more clients over the coming years.

It gives me such a thrill to be able to assist my clients to clarify their financial futures. I enjoy researching and implementing effective solutions for my clients that not only provide them with a firm financial direction but also give them clarity and confidence in that direction.

I’ve had a love of numbers from a very young age and it was always apparent to those who knew me that I would forge a career in the finance industry. After school I completed a Bachelor of Business (majoring in Accounting and Marketing) then worked in accounting and payroll positions for the next eight years.

Over this time I found myself becoming more and more interested in helping my family and friends to improve their financial positions. I soon realised that many people were being held back, often without realising it, by lack of clarity around their financial affairs.

I became determined to do what I could to improve this situation, using my knowledge and skills to help people like this to achieve their personal and financial goals. I went back into study to complete a Diploma and an Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning. I was then very pleased to start working with Endorphin Wealth Management in early 2016.

I enjoy the fact that my own values align perfectly with Endorphin’s, particularly around providing the best advice without my clients being hit with complicated ongoing fee arrangements.

I have been investing on a personal basis for nearly a decade, and I’ve acquired multiple properties in Melbourne and a portfolio of Australian and international shares. My experiences over this time have reinforced my confidence in identifying the best methods to build wealth, allowing me to add a personal touch to the advice I provide my clients.

There’s nothing I’d love more than to use my knowledge and experience to assist you to reach your fullest potential.

A message from Sanjeev Sharma

As everyone’s financial and life situation is unique, I keep that in mind when providing financial advice. I consider that providing a personalised service in the financial advice process is essential.

I started my journey as a Financial Advisor in 2010 with an innate desire to make a difference in my client’s life by helping them achieve their financial goals and protect their lifestyle. My previous experience of working in retail banking and customer services laid an ideal foundation to my current role.

I understand that your needs may change in different stages of life: perhaps you might be planning to purchase your first home, finance a child’s education, planning a holiday or maybe even planning for your retirement.

I consider it a great privilege to be recognised by my colleagues in industry and clients alike as an advisor who is “thoughtful, loyal, compassionate and always putting his client’s interest first”.

I completed my Diploma Financial Services (Financial Planning) in 2010 after completing my Graduate Diploma in Business Studies in 2008. I am also a Fellow of ANZIIF (Australia & New Zealand Institute of Insurance & Finance) with specialist skills in the life risk area. I get a great satisfaction by seeing happy and financially protected families having a clear financial road map to take them where they want to be in their lives.

There is nothing more rewarding in my job than ending up my day with a feeling that I was able to help someone, making a significant difference to their lives and seeing my clients come back thanking me and putting their trust in me by referring their friends and family to be helped with their finances.

My passion and skill set is all around helping clients retire successfully. From a young age I gained a lot of satisfaction and fulfillment helping people. My role at Endorphin provides a platform to continue this in an area that provides value to others and meaning to myself.

Establishing retirement / financial plans and making adjustments as certain milestones are met and new goals are created is what makes my role as an Adviser the best job in the world. A role where I’m consistently assisting clients achieve their goals and ever-changing needs through the advice I provide brings with itself a level of satisfaction that is unmatched with other professions.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with an amazing team and client-focused firm, and my commitment to our clients is unwavering.

Outside of work it’s all about family time and having fun with my 4 year old son Ashton, and 17 month old, Calyssa. When time permits my passion for sport kicks in and my love for the Western Bulldogs.

I began advising private clients in 2015, and have since worked exclusively with non – bank advice firms focused on quality, holistic ‘best interest’ advice.

I have 20 years’ industry experience, having held positions with organisations such ING, MLC, NAB and Mercer covering all aspects of financial strategy, investment product research and advice.
I hold a Graduate Diploma in Financial Advice, and Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance (both completed with FINSIA). I also hold a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) and have completed Cert IV in Finance and Mortgage Broking and a specialist course in Self-managed Super Funds (SMSF) with Kaplan. I am registered with the Tax Practitioner’s Board (TPB) to provide Tax-related financial advice.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my young family, taking advantage of Sydney’s beaches in the warmer months, and cycling to work and on weekends to keep fit.

My family also supports various charities including the Children’s Hospital in Randwick, Cancer Council, Heart Foundation, and the Fred Hollows Foundation.

It gives me great joy to be able to help educate my clients to increase their financial literacy. Through my background of over 10 years of coaching hockey, I use the same principles on the field that we use for my client’s financial lives. By concentrating on the structure, working on your relationship with money, my aim is to help my clients to grow not only in a financial sense, but in a ‘return on life’ sense.

I love helping time poor professionals, whether established or just starting out to take control of your money through support, coaching and guidance. Working at a client focused financial advice firm allows me to put the clients’ story first. We achieve results through a structured process that I am able to guide all my clients through life’s transitions and ensure that that you are able to achieve everything you hope for in life.

My aim is to help my clients prepare for the significant life transitions will happen in their lives. I aim to be proactive, and to prepare ahead of transitions, so that they don’t have financial issues when life changes. We believe it’s better to prepare than to repair.

Outside of work I live with my partner Abby and are about to welcome our first fur baby to the world.

All throughout schooling I found myself interested in economics and finance, and with my innate numerical ability, I found that work in the finance world is perfect for me.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Melbourne where I earned a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Economics and Finance. My experience so far has been more enriching that I thought possible. We have a small team at Endorphin, and that means I have been put in a position of responsibility and agency from day one.

I came to Endorphin Wealth on a graduate cadetship and so far, the role has been not only great for my learning, but I have been put in a situation where I can contribute towards researching and assisting the advisors in managing their clients.

As Endorphin’s Finance and Investment Officer, my role is broad and engaging. Whether it be compliance, implementation of strategy, managing finance and investment information or additional project work, I feel that my contributions are truly helpful.

Once I have a better knowledge of the industry, and with the guidance of Endorphin’s advisors, I will be transitioning into a full time financial advisory position in the future.

The role I play in the team and the tasks I complete have given me excellent practical knowledge which is building upon the theory I have been taught at university, allowing me to excel in the work I do.

  • I would highly recommend Robert Rich, he is the most honest, empathetic, and professional advisor and beautiful human being l have ever met. Robert and l were already doing business 12 months ago when my partner suddenly died. He had just bought a house in Cairns for us to retire to, everything seemed perfect. I was in Cairns preparing our home and he was in our Melbourne property still working. Then the heartbreaking news that he had suddenly died. Robert was magnificent in assisting me to get the estate business finalised. Robert went over and above to assist me both professionally in financial advice and personally by being a friend l could trust at a very emotional time. l felt totally at ease to leave my financial future in Roberts hands and to let him do what he does best. A big sincere thanks to Robert l now am retired in a beautiful home in Cairns with a prosperous and healthy financial future and my dog Bucket.

    - Kirill Orlov

  • I have been working with Glenn for around 6 years. His advice over that time has help me build my superannuation & retirement assets to a point where I can afford to retire. Around 6 months ago I decided that I wanted to formally retire. Glenn discussed importance of retiring to something and we spent time developing my vision for retirement. This included spending more time with my family, learning how to paint, mentoring my grandchildren, and keeping active by joining a swimming class. He also discussed the important lifestyle benefits that my work provides and how I can replace these once I leave the workforce. This holistic approach is true retirement planning. Because of Glenn I’m confident that I not only have enough money to retire but will also live a fulfilling and energising retirement.

  • My husband and I wanted to find a trusted partner to advise us on our financial plans and help grow our wealth. We met with a couple of firms before meeting with Rob and they just didn’t grab us and it just didn’t feel right. One meeting with Rob and we were both sold on the spot that Rob was our man. And we haven’t looked back. Rob offers a very prompt, efficient and client focused service and always keeps us up to date and on track with what is happening with our portfolio.
