John Manserra

I’m a Certified Financial Planner and Partner at Hillross Geelong, a fast-growing firm that aims to change the narrative around financial advice. Our focus is to empower the people we work with to make informed savvy decisions with their’ money by delivering financial advice that is personalised, purposeful and outcome focused. By taking the time to listen, educate and empower we are able to provide certainty and financial leadership to our clients ensuring we work to achieve what matters most to them. Unfortunately, many Australian’s miss the opportunity to seek financial advice given it has historically been overly complex, but in it’s purest form financial planning is designed to help motivated people achieve their goals and outcomes. A partnership with a financial adviser should encourage clarity around all financial decisions, ensuring people get the most from their’ financial lives. I hope to be able to connect with more people to ensure they aren’t missing this opportunity for a partnership.

I’m a Certified Financial Planner® with the Financial Planning Association of Australia as well as a Life Risk Specialist® accreditation with the Financial Planning Association of Australian. I have both a Bachelor of Commerce (Financial Planning) from Deakin University and a Cavendish and ICFS Specialist SMSF Course from the University of Adelaide.

John was recently listed as one of the top financial advisers in Geelong.

My idea of financial freedom is to keep active, travel, take Murphy my bulldog for a walk, drink plenty of coffee with family and friends but most importantly watch my mighty Carlton blues play on the weekend.
