Prior to his time at Hudson, Ivan spent his entire working career in the field of finance. Starting out in corporate Treasuries (managing company finances), his time since has included 3 years with a prominent Australian Trustee Company and 4 years in one of the BIG 4 banks in charge of Investment Compliance of some of Australians largest Superannuation funds (including some of the Industry funds).
Ivan made a conscious decision to switch from dealing with Business Financial Management to Personal Financial Management. In that time Ivan has had a few roles including a specialised role as financial adviser for self employed professionals as well as a rural practice. Ivan has been an adviser with Hudson for 11 years.
Through his education and experiences with dealing with Banks, Super Funds, Fund Managers and Accountants, and his many clients (past and present), Ivan has a very broad and diverse range of knowledge to draw from. This enables Ivan to keep an open mind when approaching financial decisions and to explore all possible scenarios when advising on your best course of action.

What our members say ...I have been a member of Hudson since (approx) 1997, when I was in full employment, earning a good income and enjoying a very good life style, lots of holidays etc., but with little thought to planning for retirement! Thanks to the advice and guidance received from Hudson advisors I was able to embark on an investment program that was 'painless'. It did not stretch me to the point of stress, but was very achievable and had little impact on my lifestyle. The most significant philosophy which gave me both 'encouragement' and 'comfort' was Stuart's advice which guided me to always leave a 20% buffer! I was able to retire early, have relocated to the beautiful South Coast and am now enjoying a very comfortable retirement. Thank you for all your wisdom. Congratulations on your 20 years!
