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.
A message from Robert Rich
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.
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 enjoy the fact that my own values align perfectly with Endorphin’s, particularly around providing the best advice without my clients being hit with complex and opaque 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 John Theodorakopoulos
My passion is to help my clients achieve their goals in life through financial advice. For me personally, to see my clients achieve something they never thought was possible has been one of the most satisfying feelings that I have experienced.
I feel blessed and extremely lucky to be one of the few people who knew what they wanted to do from a young age and to actually power forward with a career goal in mind. I wanted to become a financial advisor since I was 16 years old and at the age of 25 I achieved my goal after years of study and working in various other finance industry roles.
As I begin the next chapter of this great journey of mine with Endorphin Wealth Management in 2018, I feel grateful for the chance to work with a group of people who share the same passion for financial advice as I do. I’m looking forward to helping other successful professionals who are at different stages of their lives and careers achieve their life ambitions.
A message from Jennifer Chin
I am very proud to be part of the Endorphin family – a dynamic and supportive working environment.
I hold a BSc (Hons) of Computer Science and Master of Accounting (Professional). I have also completed a Diploma in Financial Services and am currently studying the Advanced Diploma in Financial Services.
With my previous experience working in the banking and IT industries, I was required to interact with people at various levels, and realised that many of them are not prepared for the years ahead.
I aspire to become a financial advisor in the future which will enable me to educate and help others to achieve their financial goals so they are able to have a more enjoyable life for the years ahead.
A message from Nicholas Milborrow
I joined the team at Endorphin Wealth Management in 2017 after starting my financial services career in the lending sector, working across several roles over the course of three years.
I am in my final year of a Master of Finance program, at the Melbourne Business School, and previously completed a double degree obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce (majoring in Economics and Finance) and Arts.
Building on a solid foundation in process analysis and risk management, my true passion lies in working within a great team and to help people achieve their financial goals. I am captivated by different financial markets, and being part of the Endorphin team has allowed me to continue my personal and professional growth, where I am working towards becoming a Financial Advisor.
What our Clients Say
Robert Rich is a gun and has been a pleasure to work with, he spent a lot of time asking questions and listening to both my husband and I to get a deep understanding of our current financial situation of who we are and where we want to be. His advice has been comprehensive and easy to understand. The genuine interest and enthusiasm he has demonstrated has made the whole experience to date, fun and engaging (it has also been awesome to see some great financial results!). Rob is a great communicator and is always available to chat, meet up or respond to an email. We wish we had seen Rob earlier, and plan to have him as our advisor now and into the future, I have and will continue to recommend him and his services.
