Wealth Management

Angus Tyers
Financial Advisor, Grad. Dip (CA), BCom, Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (CAANZ)
Before becoming a Financial Adviser, I spent 5 years working extensively as a Chartered Accountant with both family offices and Big 4 accounting firms. I worked closely with families on their group tax structures, SMSFs and transition of wealth strategies which included advice on preferred restructuring and governance solutions.

I focus on using these skills to advise our clients on building and protecting the wealth they have earned. I also work closely with our finance team to advise on the best solutions for structure, finance and asset selection in their financial strategies.

Outside of the office I participate in rowing and am still involved at the Melbourne University Boat Club. My wife and I recently had our second child, whom I’ll ensure will also be an avid Demons supporter.

New to the Insurance team, I am looking forward to assisting clients in achieving comprehensive and affordable insurance. With 7 years experience in client services, my goal is always to achieve the best result through friendly, efficient and professional support.

Financial Advice is all about people – building and growing relationships and helping them make the most out of today and make a better tomorrow. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than being able to develop a relationship with clients, understanding who they are and what they want and then taking them on that journey through our advisory relationship.

I listen to clients and work to grow a trusting relationship, whilst developing a strong understanding of their lifestyle, goals and needs. I then show them how to achieve dreams that they didn’t know were possible. From there it’s about maintaining the relationship, helping them stay on track to realise their goals in the long run.

Away from work, I’m a big people person and love spending quality time with my wife and three daughters with our family and friends. When not at home, you’ll often find us at the cellar door of new wineries or craft breweries or staying active on long walks/hikes.

Director & Senior Adviser, CFP® / Grad,Dip (Financial Planning) / BBus (Eco/Finance)

For me this is the best job in the world, no two days are ever the same as no two clients are the same. Helping people formulate a financial path forward, and seeing the benefits over time is what it’s all about. This is a challenging but ultimately rewarding profession where people place their trust in us, and we work hard to ensure we repay that faith with financial certainty and peace of mind.

As well as staying on top of strategies, products and regulatory changes, the real key to success is having a deep understanding of the clients ultimate goals and often helping them understand what those goals look like. This is achieved through asking the right questions, and actually listening to the answers!

Aside from work, I’m generally training for the next endurance event. Having already completed the Melbourne Ironman, North Face 50km trail run and Three Peaks 235K bike ride, I’m always on the lookout for the next challenge both personally and professionally.

Nic Carson
BBus (Acc) / BBus (Fin Planning), FAAA member, SMSFA member
Having graduated from university in 2021, I am at the forefront of the changing financial advice industry. I have the benefit of entering the industry at a time where the aim has transformed from selling products to adding value. At Smith Feutrill, I work closely alongside our senior advisers and other stakeholders to assess your personal situation and provide strategic and tailored advice to ensure your goals and objectives are achieved.

I love nothing more than catching up with our clients after providing them with advice and seeing that advice actively help them achieve their goals and objectives. These are the moments when I know that I have chosen a great career.

Outside of work, you'll find me at the gym, on the bike, socialising with friends or cheering on my beloved Tigers.

Nicola Murray
Associate, BCom (eco) / BA

I joined the team in February 2021 after completing my Bachelor of Commerce/Arts at Monash University. Working in client services, I pride myself on providing the best service possible for our clients and taking care of the wider team too.

With a strong interest in financial planning, and a desire to become an adviser in the future, I am thoroughly enjoying working with, and learning from our financial planning team.

Like most of the team, in my spare time, I love to dine out with friends, bake for our team’s exclusive “chocolate club”, and go for long walks.

Trent Snell
Associate, BCom&Arts / MFinPlan
I have always loved working with people. I have previously spent 15 years at a large financial institution distributing investment, insurance and platform products to financial advisers. After completing my Master of Financial Planning, I made the move into private advice. I believe great financial advice is more than just numbers, it is about listening, caring, trust and knowledge. Outside of work, my wife and I are kept busy with our son and daughter’s sporting commitments, as well as spending quality time as a family, watching movies and taking our dog Roxy for a walk to the park with coffee in hand. I’m also a passionate Hawthorn supporter, but please don’t hold that against me!
