James Shaw B.Com FP

Senior Financial Adviser

James has been working in the Financial Planning industry since 2006 and employed by King Financial Group since July 2017. He has a Bachelor of Commerce with a Major in Financial Planning along with specialist accreditation and expertise in: Self Managed Super Funds and Aged Care. From Canberra originally, James also has extensive experience in defined benefit schemes and is a huge Canberra Raiders (Rugby League) fan.

He has a strong belief that everyone can benefit from financial planning advice but he predominantly specialises in advising pre-retirees and retirees. His approach to financial planning is to get to know you and your situation and then work within the relevant areas such as legislative, compliance, tax, investments, estate planning, Centrelink, insurances, structures (superannuation, trusts, investment bonds, etc.) and budgeting to achieve your longer-term tangible and intangible financial and life goals.

His approach will then involve breaking these long-term goals down into more manageable short-term targets and then work with you on a regular basis to make sure we are on track.

When he’s not working, he is spending time with his 2 young children, running long distances, watching any sport (Sydney Swans fan in the AFL) and reading newspapers.
