Your Financial Coach
My name is Kirby Smith and I am a qualified financial planner with over eight years experience. I currently work for Two Mile Bay Financial Planning in Torquay.
I studied at Deakin University and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Financial Planning in 2006 . Since then, I have completed an Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning and participated in over 30 hours of training each year to retain my knowledge in the industry.
Over the last few years, I have noticed more clients who lack the basic knowledge and understanding of their financial affairs.
I was asked if I would consider running evenings to educate women with the aim to improve their financial literacy in areas such as the family budget, banking structure, superannuation, debt, insurance and estate planning.
And so it begun... "Women's Financial Education" a six week introduction to core elements of your finances...
I look forward to meeting you soon
