Senior Financial Planner | Strategy & Investments
Representative of Hood Sweeney Securities AFS Licence No. 220897
Daman Arthur is a Certified Financial Planner® with more than 10 years of experience in the profession.
Daman has held advisory roles in several prominent practices over that time and joined Hood Sweeney keen to return to a provision of holistic strategic advice, after a four year chapter focussed on investment advice.
Daman became a Financial Planner because he likes helping people achieve their lifestyle and retirement objectives.
While Daman supports clients at all stages in their life journey, his focus is typically retirees and pre-retirees.
“As people approach retirement and then actually retire a range of strategies become available and, supporting clients through this shift in their lives is very rewarding. While much of the conversations are financial so much is changing personally and, I’ve foundclients really appreciate a coach for a variety of life decisions they are making.”
Daman sees significant value in facilitating holistic advice and invites other professionals into client relationships whenever he identifies having a panel of experts in the one room will benefit client outcomes. He sees being in an integrated services firm like Hood Sweeney, where numerous experts can easily work with a client, as a real value-add.
With his experience in the profession Daman plays an important mentor role for our newer team members and is a Professional Year (PY) Supervisor which means he is responsible for a PY candidate meeting all experience and training requirements to become a Representative on the Hood Sweeney Securities Australian FinancialServices Licence (AFSL). This is a big responsibility, as the quality of Daman’s guidance and mentoring will shape the Planners of the future.
Daman lives near the beach with his wife and two children and, they often enjoy family time doing some sort of beachy activity. He is a lifelong Port supporter and regularly whips up delicious feasts for family and friends.
