Novo Wealth founder Paul Garner is a Certified Financial Planner® Professional with excellent credentials and high level experience from his time at a ‘big 4’ Australian bank and boutique planning practice.  Wanting to move beyond this [corporate] environment and offer clients more, he started Novo to deliver genuinely tailored wealth advisory services, with a strong focus on responsible investing.  Paul is also a ‘real person’ – a husband, dad, musician, footy-lover – who realised ethical investment needed greater recognition – and to be seen as more than an afterthought or token gesture in 21st century financial planning, given the world his [and everyone else’s] kids were growing up in. Novo [meaning to change, reinvent, refresh in Latin] prioritises its product and sector selection around responsible investing with carefully and individually structured planning.  Novo understands that each client’s position and lifestyle is different, be they just starting out, or looking for a kick along as they near retirement.  Every client is listened to and Novo will canvass a broad range of investment opportunities and insurance options to create a portfolio to suit.  Novo will design each client a specialised program to build wealth, protect that wealth and enable that wealth to potentially ‘go on giving’ indefinitely. High quality responsible investing encourages great corporate behaviour and outcomes that benefit people and our planet – without compromising wealth creation and performance.  Truly a win-win-win-win…..
