The Fox & The Hare

JESSICA BRADY FINANCIAL ADVISER

What’s your background?

I’ve been in financial services for 11 years working for major players including Macquarie Bank, Commonwealth Bank and Zurich. As part of my roles I’ve been lucky enough to travel around Australia and the world speaking at leading Financial Adviser conferences on a range of topical issues. I am passionate about making the Financial Advice profession greater than ever before and have been actively involved with the Association of Financial Advisers since 2011.

Why did you want to be an adviser?

I watched my parents make a series of financial wins and losses all the while never truly considering my own financial decisions, thus, meandering through my early twenties with no real plan or strategy. I realised that if I wanted to achieve half of the things I had planned in life I needed to get serious about all things finance related and so a passion was born.

Why did you start Fox & Hare?

Realising there was so much confusion, frustration and heartache associated with money I wanted to build a place where people could be excited about the idea of creating and achieving financial goals. I really want young people to feel confident with money, particularly women who often feel most uncertain about their ability to understand and manage their finances.

Anything interesting about you that we should know?

I love travelling and have done some solo adventures to places that made my parents nervous, South Africa probably scared them the most! I love to cook and spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about future meals.

GLEN HARE FINANCIAL ADVISER

What’s your background?

I landed a job at Macquarie Bank when I was 19, just before the peak of the GFC. The first couple of years were very full on because I was working full-time and going to uni at night to complete my Bachelor of Commerce-Accounting. I had various roles at the bank over my 10 years but left in mid 2017 as one of the youngest Directors in the company.

Why did you want to be an adviser?

I love it when things just work. I get a real kick out taking something that is broken and/or inefficient and turning it around. The idea of helping people achieve their goals, whether that is buying their first property, taking a year off to travel the world, or like in my case, starting a business. I sat down with my adviser 3 years before I started Fox & Hare (when the thought of owning my own business was still a pipe dream), and put together a plan that ensured I had the funds I needed to quit my job, start my business and not change my standard of living. I truly believe that without the plan in place I wouldn’t have been in the position to do what I did. Helping others do the same is a pretty great gig in my opinion.

Why did you start Fox & Hare?

Helping people get what they want out of life is a really rewarding experience. I also love spreadsheets.

Anything interesting about you that we should know?

I live by the beach in Coogee with my partner, do volunteer work with Out for Australia and absolutely love travelling. Keeping fit is a huge priority for me and I am always looking for an excuse to be outdoors.
