About Soans Financial Advice

Director & Adviser Profile – Rebecca Soans

retirement planning for womenAfter completing a Masters degree in Law at Cambridge University Rebecca began her career in investment banking as a fixed income trader. She worked for two London-based banks then in 1995 moved with JP Morgan from London to Sydney.

When Rebecca eventually left the trading desk she was keen to make use of her many years’ experience in financial markets, so she completed a Diploma in Financial Planning through the Financial Planning Association. This was followed by seven years with Platinum Asset Management, the funds management business specialising in international equities run by Kerr Neilson.

In 2013 Rebecca renewed her financial adviser’s licence; her particular area of interest is retirement planning for women. She is a member of the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) and is authorised to advise on investments; superannuation (including self-managed superannuation); life insurance and other risk insurances; debt management; cash-flow management; and retirement planning.

Rebecca works in Sydney and also in Wollombi in the Lower Hunter Valley where she and her partner have a rural property that is home to several horses, two cats and a Jack Russell Terrier.
