Thomas Haines

Financial Planner/Accredited Mortgage Consultant

Authorised Representative and Credit Representative of AMP Financial Planning

Graduate Certificate – Financial Planning
Advanced Diploma – Financial Planning (ADFP)
Certificate IV – Finance Mortgage Broking
Member of FBAA

Thomas started his financial planning career as an associate planner for a Gold Coast firm that specialised in the establishment and administration of self-managed superannuation funds.

He earned his accreditation whilst working and even though SMSF's provided for some wonderful insight, he realised there was more to financial planning.

Thomas wanted to broaden his knowledge and experience and was lucky enough to be offered a place at the AMP Horizons Academy in Sydney where he further honed his financial planning knowledge. Following three months of intensive training, Thomas successfully completed a nine-month Professional Year with the AMP office in Brisbane and was then offered a great role at Wealth Directions on the Sunshine Coast.

Growing up, Thomas's father was a small business owner and his mother took some time out of full time employment to look after the family.

By the time they were old enough for his mother to return to full time work, his parents had a considerable amount of catching up to do if they wanted to lead a comfortable retirement. They sought help from a financial planner who provided them with sound advice, and continues to do so to this day.

Seeing his parents take control of their financial situation and the resulting benefits sound financial advice has had on their everyday lives, inspired him to pursue a career in the industry. Thomas hopes to have the same positive impact on his own and other people's lives.    

Thomas wants to build wealth and financial security over the long term for himself and his clients.
