Anwer Ali Mohammed | Financial Planner
It wasn’t an easy start for Anwer Ali Mohammed in Australia after 11 years as an engineer in the Indian Air Force and then as a branch manager at an IT company for four years. When he arrived in Australia in 2004 Ali restarted or rather kickstarted his life here as a Sign-A-Rama salesman.
In 2010, he started Planet Insurance and Financial Planning. Armed with his Master’s in Public Admin, and Diploma in Financial Planning, Ali has been providing professional financial planning advice and solutions to clients. He prides himself on developing excellent working relationships with all clients to provide comprehensive financial advice based on their individual needs and goals.
“Taking the decision to give up my full time job and start my own business was the single most important moment in my career in Australia. There was no capital except what I could put in. Today, we have grown to have more than 3,000 trusted clients and 12 staff,” says Ali, who specialises in advice on investments and strategic asset allocation.
