Australian Expats - Singapore

For the past 8 years Jarrad Brown has been our financial advisor and during this time he has been nothing but professional. Within this period he has helped establish an adaptive financial plan with regular reviews and updates focusing on our ever changing needs.

As questions or concerns arise I can always look to call on Jarrad to help provide information and guidance in a timely manner. During this time I have recommended Jarrad to a number of friends and colleagues based on my experiences and he always represents himself truthfully without the hard sell.

My wife and I have been working with Jarrad, Linda and the team for a number of years now. They are very professional and always make themselves available when we need to discuss things. I highly recommend Global Financial Consultants.

John D

Australian Expat - Singapore

I’ve been extremely pleased with Jarrad’s services over the last 12 month’s or so, who was recommended to us by a friend.
Jarrad has been a great support in helping us put together a long term investment plan, suitable for our personal circumstances and risk appetite.

He has always been really approachable and responsive, takes time to share benefits/risks of alternate options.

Would have no hesitation in recommending Jarrad and GFC!

Australian Expats - Returned to Australia

I couldn't recommend Jarrad at GFC more highly. Having worked in financial regulation some years back, I've seen when and how things can go wrong.

In my experience, Jarrad is extremely focused on his client's specific risk profile, is well-versed in a wide variety of investment options, and more importantly takes the time to thoroughly explain each component of any advice he provides (including risks and key considerations).

Not once have I ever felt I've been 'sold' something. His advice is always measured and relevant and he is extremely responsive and available, practicing friendly, professional, top notch communication (despite my frequent 'dumb' questions). I've referred many close friends and colleagues to Jarrad, and wouldn't hesitate to do so again if asked for a recommendation.

Shane P

Australian Expat - Singapore

Highly regard Jarrad for his professionalism, insights, business acumen and financial guidance / planning. My partner and I have been working with Jarrad for a number of years now and have found him to be very engaging, organised, articulate, personable and importantly transparent and trusting. Highly recommend Jarrad and the team should you be looking for expert financial advice.

The challenges faced by Australian expats in navigating financial markets and finding comprehensive, tailored financial advice can be a daunting task. Having moved to Singapore in 2013, I have experienced the challenges of becoming an Australian expat myself and since then, we have helped many Australian expats navigate the waters and make the most of their personal finances since.

There are many factors to consider as Australian expat, from your superannuation and tax obligations back home, to managing global assets and keeping on top of regulatory changes back home. It can be a complex minefield and a challenge to navigate.

My team and I are here to take the stress out of it for you so that you have the time to focus on what matters most. To find out more about be, book in your complimentary, obligation-free discussion today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Navigating the minefield of personal finance can be a daunting task. There is a great deal to keep abreast of from staying up to date with superannuation, regulatory and taxation changes, as well as RBA policy, capital markets and more. Ensuring your finances are working for you in Australia and abroad is vital.

A great Financial Planner will give you the peace of mind and comfort in knowing that your finances are working for you and are optimised based on your goals and situation. You'll know that you have a proactive team keeping you up to date with changes, and to act as a sounding board when life's unexpected events arise.

Having worked in Australia as a Financial Planner, and in Singapore for a decade, I have personally faced the financial challenges that Australian expats experience. Being privately owned, my licensee in Singapore allows me to tailor my advice to Australian expats without being tied to any bank or product provider.

I have spent many years in the industry in both Australia and Singapore advising busy professionals on accumulating and protecting their wealth. I also have a very strong dedication to life-long learning having completed the following; Executive MBA, Diploma & Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning, First Class Honours in Economics and Finance, Bachelor of Commerce in Economics, CFA Level 1, Australian Institute of Company Directors course, Diploma & Advanced Diploma in Finance Broking & Mortgage Management, Cert IV in Real Estate Practice, Qualified Property Investment Adviser (QPIA), Singapore College of Insurance, and Institute of Banking & Finance in Singapore.

Our specialist knowledge, partnerships, training and experience in working with Australian clients allows us to provide specialist advice and guidance on Australian-specific areas such as superannuation and repatriation. This also allows us to ensure a seamless repatriation for you and your family if/when you decide to return to Australia.

No, the first meeting is entirely complimentary and there is no obligation for you to proceed.

My approach begins with this obligation-free, complimentary discussion of your needs and circumstances. This allows you the opportunity to understand my service and whether it fits with your needs. Ahead of our discussion, I’ll ask you for further details about your financial circumstances, and your thoughts on what you would like to achieve whilst in Asia and beyond. When we meet, I’ll let you how we can assist you and make a suggestion as to the format and scope of our services. I’ll also explain our fees and provide you with a detailed cost estimate – any fees are agreed with you first.

No, I regularly visit with people at their offices, clubs or quiet cafes / restaurants that allow us to discuss your personal financial situation in more detail. You are also welcome to meet with me at our offices at Robinson Road, or via Zoom.

An accountant can help you with your taxes and balance your books, but a Financial Planner is like having a dedicated professional who can help you navigate the choppy waters of finance and investment. They can provide you with a comprehensive roadmap for achieving your financial goals, and help you make informed decisions about how to invest your money wisely.

Think of it this way: your accountant is like your doctor, there to diagnose and treat specific problems as they arise. But your Financial Planner is like your personal trainer, helping you set achievable goals and providing you with a roadmap to get there.

So if you're serious about achieving financial success, it's time to enlist the help of a Financial Planner.

You can reach out to me at any stage via email at - OR on Whatsapp at +65 8282 5702.
