Our advisers

At TWM, we enjoy providing advice across all spectrums of financial planning and strongly believe that a financial plan is fundamental to achieving personal and financial goals. It enables you to stand back, assess your current position and make appropriate changes to give yourself the best chance of achieving personal milestones.

Ongoing and regular reviews are equally important to the success of any plan, as they enable adjustments to be made to ensure that your investments, insurance and superannuation strategies remain relevant to any changes that occur in your life. While some of these changes can be caused due to your own personal or financial position, others may be forced upon you due to changes in legislation and economic conditions both here and overseas.

We genuinely find great satisfaction in helping our clients to achieve their goals and stay on top of changes and developments in the financial services industry and we look forward to helping you.


Principal & Senior Adviser

RodAs well as holding an Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning, I am a Certified Financial Strategist, Registered Tax (Financial) Adviser (registration number 25188453) and a member of the FPA (Financial Planning Association).

I commenced working in the financial planning industry in 1999 and before this spent 10 years as owner/manager of a successful business servicing government departments and private enterprise across QLD and Northern NSW.

Prior to this, my 15 years with Westpac involved a variety of roles, including management, retail lending and commercial lending. During this time I attained a Diploma in Accounting and developed an interest in investing in the share market, putting together my own personal share portfolio and self-managed super fund.

Financial Adviser

Along with completing a Post Graduate Degree in Financial Planning, I passed the mandatory FASEA exam in early 2020’s and am a member of the FPA (Financial Planning Association).

I have worked in the Financial Services Industry since 2000 and have over 9 years experience as a Financial Planner. I developed a passion for Financial Planning in my early years working for the Commonwealth Bank group and have a wealth of financial planning experience that extends to lending and banking.

I have a down to earth nature with a strong work ethic reflecting my farming upbringing. The unpredictable nature of farming instilled an ability to think outside the box, to be resilient and empathetic, which are traits I use when dealing with clients to always get the best outcomes for them, whether it’s short or long term.

Our Preferred Charity

Team J & J is a fundraising group which works throughout the year to help families who have children with blood-related cancers.

“I know how hard it is. When my son was diagnosed he had two weeks left to live without treatment. It was a big shock and we had to drive to and from Brisbane constantly. Our goal is to raise lots of money for the Leukaemia Foundation and our sponsor, Total Wealth Management is offering a $10,000 prize for every golfer who gets a hole in one, which is massive.”

“I still talk to him every day and ask if I’ve done enough. I wouldn’t be here doing this if it wasn’t for him”

Mrs Gayle Daetz

The Leukaemia Foundation supports patients and their families with accommodation free of charge for as long as their treatment lasts, which could be anywhere from six months to two years.
