Darren Pawski has been in the financial services industry since 1988 and has extensive experience in dealing in all areas of financial planning and finance. Over the last, nearly 30 years, Darren has been employed by the Commonwealth Bank as well as having senior management roles with prominent financial services companies in Perth. We have conducted an interview with him.
Which are your most valued senior management roles undertaken? Why?
I have always felt that there is tremendous value in every professional role or responsibility one undertakes, especially since there is simply so much that one can gain from the diverse experiences inherent in any senior management position. That being said, I deeply value my current professional opportunity in which I am able to work with closely with both clients and staff in my senior management role with Synergy Financial Solutions, where it is with great pride that I serve as the managing director.
How many years of working experiences do you possess in financial planning and finance?
I spent the entirety of my professional life working in the financial planning and finance industries, a period of time that amounts to a total of almost 30 years. I entered the industry in 1988, and in the time since I have certainly enjoyed each and every opportunity to assist my clients in creating a personalized and highly effective short- and long-term plan for a secure financial future.
Where did you gain your wealth of knowledge in Financial Planning?
I’ve learned a great deal over the course of my nearly 30 years in the finance industry, but I have also gained so much from my career-long commitment to continuing education. My academic background includes a Diploma of Financial Planning from Deakin University and a Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking from Kaplan. I should also note that I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in finance and banking through Edith Cowan University.
What is your firmest belief about Business Financial planning and solutions?
Financial planning has to be precisely tailored to the needs of the individual or business in order to yield the best possible outcome, so it is my firm belief that every individual or business should adopt a thorough and exacting approach to ensure they are working with a financial planner willing to create a highly individualized financial planning strategy.
Which kind of full membership and accreditation do you possess?
In addition to holding a Diploma in Financial Planning and a Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking, I am also a member of The Association of Independently Owned Financial Planners. In fact, I was named the Association’s Member of the Year in 2012, an honor of which I am quite proud.
As for the memberships, accreditations, and licenses held by Synergy Financial Solutions, we possess our Australian Credit License and are accredited with over 20 different lenders. We also hold full memberships with both the Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA) and the Credit and Investments Ombudsman (CIO).
We believe that our extensive list of accreditations, licenses, and memberships serves as a reflection of our commitment to maintaining the loftiest professional standards and building long-term client relationships based on honesty, integrity, and trust.
