Bridget MacKenzie   DIRECTOR, SENIOR FINANCIAL ADVISER
B.Bus Financial Planning

Bridget MacKenzie - 2016 New Adviser of the Year After almost eight years of industry experience, I created and launched Diamond Partners Wealth Management.  With a passion to do things differently and stand out from the rest, there was no doubt that my own business was the only way to move forward and make my mark in the industry.

I genuinely have a passion for helping people and ensuring ‘Plan B’ is always in place.  It is extremely rewarding when you become an imperative element of someone’s life and see goals being kicked, or contrary to that, protection measures in action.

I am eager on growing my message within the community that advice is affordable and with our Government becoming more and more of an incompatible safety net, we all need to be equipped with the right strategy to get ourselves where we want to be, the opportunity cost of not seeking professional advice is what is costing people a fortune!

Outside of work, I adore time with my great support Dave and our gorgeous puppy (fur baby) Lodi at the beach, my dearest friends and family.  I love a good coffee and have a discreet passion for interior design – I hope my office is a representation of who I am and what I stand for; I want all of our clients to feel right at home and in safe hands.

 

Kaine Frew   FINANCIAL ADVISER

Kaine Frew Kaine came highly recommended via like-minded industry colleagues and after taking time to find the right fit, we are beyond excited to have him on board.  Kaine is a motivated and professional adviser and his approach to client care and management compliments that of Diamond Partners.  Kaine looks forward to assisting clients in improving their position and reaching their goals.

I Joined Diamond Partners after five years with NAB Financial Planning here on the Sunshine Coast.  In an industry with continual change and challenges I was attracted to Diamond Partners for the teams' view on providing honest and transparent advice to everyday Australians from all walks of life.

Ultimately what I enjoy most about my role is the ability to provide peace of mind through support, information and education that is completely understandable.  I love the reward of fulfilling my clients' both short and long-term aspirations, whilst building long-lasting relationships along the way.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing football (for Caloundra Football Club), love a coffee and enjoy spending as much time at the beach as possible.

 

Emma Judd   CLIENT SERVICE OFFICER

Emma joins the Diamond Partners team with a comprehensive level of Financial Planning industry knowledge after being the sole CSO for a local firm in her hometown of Toowoomba.  A sea change for her family has brought her experience to us and to say we are excited to have her onboard is an understatement!  Emma also has a Diploma in Financial Services which has deepened her understanding of the complexities and framework in which we work.  Emma looks forward to helping our clients with their needs and strengthening our support team and internal processes.

I started with Diamond Partners Wealth Management in February 2020 after deciding to make the move from my hometown to the Sunshine Coast.  I look forward to assisting the firms' existing clients and also new clients with achieving their financial goals.  I have over four years’ industry experience and am always eager to gain new knowledge in this ever-changing space.  I have a strong eye for detail and enjoy implementing and assisting with client’s financial strategies.

I have a passion for being outdoors and ensuring the impact I leave on the environment is a positive one!  I enjoy exploring and kayaking on the weekends with my partner and our beautiful dog, Lola.

 
 

Lily Henderson   TRAINEE CLIENT SERVICE OFFICER

Lily has joined the Diamond Partners team as a Trainee Client Service Officer.  She is currently a third-year Finance student at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and will work with us part-time while she completes her studies.  She is eager to gain financial planning experience and build practical industry knowledge to compliment both her degree our team.  Lily will be learning all duties from the ground up so should you speak to her on the phone, please be sure to welcome her aboard.

After recently starting at Diamond Partners, I am already very excited to be part of a team that helps people from all walks of life.  Being a part of clients achieving their financial goals is something that I already find rewarding.  I enjoy being challenged and cannot wait to see what practical capabilities I will gain from my position.

Outside of work I love spending quality time with my friends and family.  Enjoying the beach, grabbing a coffee (I am also a trained Barista!) or attending a live music event.  I love all things creative and also relish in a modern art gallery.
