Chris Pearse

I joined the banking world when I was 17 – and was trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up.

A luck would have it I found my way into business and personal lending within the bank, and found that I loved my job and helping others.

After 37 years working in two major Australian Banks, I felt the time was right to use my skills and experience in the finance broking world. I was attracted to the idea of being a broker because brokers do not operate within the “silos” that banks create for themselves – and looking after clients now means being able to offer the best that all of the banks and financiers has to offer – while providing the stability and ongoing relationship and guidance of myself as a broker.

I feel I have a lot to offer clients – including some of my own hard-earned lessons on the use of debt as a tool towards achieving personal and financial goals. I have worked with clients in many industries – including agri finance, fishing, mining services, retail, property, manufacturing and import/exporters.

Joining the team at Westminster National has been empowering to experience their powerful relationships with the lenders plus their reputation for looking after their clients and doing the right thing.
