Board of Directors
Company Secretary and Director
A down-to-earth and approachable leader, Colin is the Practice Principal of Sydney-based Finser Consulting. Being a SMSF specialist adviser and with a CFP accreditation, he’s been working in the financial services industry for over 30 years, specialising in all aspects of financial planning.
Colin understands that good risk management is key to a successful investment portfolio and contributes to both the investment and compliance committees within NOW. He likes to fine-tune his risk management skills by holidaying off the beaten track. Colin also pursues more conventional professional development measures, with ongoing training to expand his areas of expertise into the areas of strategies, investment and life insurance.
Keen to explore the oceans of the world and gain a deeper understanding into the earth’s natural resources, Steven began his working life as a seismic surveyor for oil and gas. The incredibly detailed and analytical nature of this work prepared him well for a career in the financial services industry, and in 1983 he joined his father’s company, Unac West End Group.
Since then, Steven has taken over the reins of the business and seen it grow from strength to strength. Using investment and insurance product knowledge, combined with deep market expertise and an Advanced Diploma in Financial Services (Financial Planning), Steven relishes the challenge of creating strategic financial plans to secure clients’ financial futures.
A life member of the Cronulla Surf Lifesaving Club, Frank is also a lifesaver when it comes to your life savings. As a founding partner and current director of the NOW Financial Group, he draws on expertise in investment and insurance to create personalised retirement plans that maximise income over the long term.
Frank measures success not based on the amount of dollars he manages, but on the level of satisfaction his customers achieve. Since establishing Doran Financial Services in 1984, his business has grown from focusing on superannuation and insurance to encompass all facets of financial planning and asset protection.
Frank is also an active supporter of local community groups and junior sporting clubs, including the Cronulla Nippers and Sutherland Junior Rugby League.
