Andrew Jewell - First Super Executive Manager, Financial Advice and Education Andrew Jewell
Executive Manager, Financial Advice and Education 

More about Andrew

Building on a successful career in the finance sector, Andrew followed his passion for meeting people by moving into financial advice. Andrew is driven by wanting to help people, especially when it comes to finances.

Andrew enjoys taking complex subjects like superannuation and breaking them down into bite-sized, relatable examples for members. He says, “Nothing beats the satisfaction of watching a member understand a financial concept or strategy, and making a difference to their life, it’s extremely rewarding”.

Andrew enjoys the flexibility of super and the way it can be adapted to meet member needs. He likes to guide his members through each of life’s stages showing them how their super and financial management needs can be adapted as their circumstances change; from the first stages of their working career, expanding their family, the empty-nest stage and of course, arguably the best part, retirement.

He is a firm believer that you don’t need to have a large retirement balance to seek advice. Financial advice can change the lives of members with even the smallest balances. The key to a successful partnership with clients is to listen. He believes it’s an honour to have members share their lives with you, and it’s important to share something with them too.

In his downtime Andrew enjoys spending time with family and friends, going to gigs, jamming with his bass guitar and playing football (soccer). In fact, Andrew started a successful soccer club in a small ‘league and rugby-only’ town in regional NSW. In the first summer, the club had over 400 children register to play.

The club grew exponentially to accommodate many children, teen and adult teams who competed in NSW and ACT. To honour his contribution to his community, Andrew was presented with an Australia Day Community Award, by the lead singer of Ice House, Iva Davies!

Financial Planner

More about Richard

Richard has spent his entire career working in financial services. To say he is dedicated, is an understatement. With over 20-years’ experience as a financial planner, he’s seen plenty of change, especially within superannuation. It’s his ability to change people’s lives, both financially and their lifestyle, that attracts him to financial planning.

Having travelled the breadth of the country to meet with members, he particularly enjoys visiting the regional areas. And if he can’t make it in person, he’s more than happy to meet online to discuss your financial planning goals.

While he enjoys the diversity that financial planning offers, and nuances of superannuation, his favourite topics are retirement planning, estate planning (both business and personal succession planning), as well as life insurance. In fact, some of Richard’s greatest achievements throughout his career have been the advice he’s given members about life insurance. He’s definitely changed many lives for the better, just ask him about it.

When he’s not enriching members lives with his incredible superannuation knowledge, you’ll probably find him on the golf course, or on a plane – travelling somewhere exciting and new.
