Growth is a mindset that means different things to different businesses, says Rakesh Gupta. “To me growth is staying ahead of the competition through continuous learning and innovation.”
Gupta arrived in Australia in 2004, his first job as a team member at Oporto. “Working in a fast paced environment taught me the value of collaboration,” he says.
Gupta then launched off in a career in finance in 2009, starting his company ARG Finance four years later. “I have always worked towards understanding the needs of my clients since the beginning of my career and won rookie of the year 2009 for my exceptional performance at work. I knew that was the sign that I could do well on my own,” he says.
In just four years ARG Finance has grown to a team of more than twelve brokers and two offices in Melbourne, covering the whole Melbourne metropolitan region.
