Steve Walden

Financial Planner

Steve Walden entered the financial services industry in 2000 in retail banking with one of the largest bank-ing institutions in the country and within three years he was running a branch.
In 2005 Steve moved into financial planning to pro-vide a more personal and hands on approach to helping his clients.

He moved to North Queensland to take up a posiition with a boutique firm specialising in mortgage reduction and wealth creation. After completing a three year stint in the tropics Steve decided to come back home to the Northern Rivers to be closer to his family.

Having survived a near fatal car accident in 2005 which left him with a crushed spine, Steve has experienced personally the need for a secure financial plan that continued when he was unable to work for an extended period.

It is this security, freedom from worry and peace of mind that Steve provides for his clients through home ownership, wealth and debt management and contingency planning.

Annie Armstrong

Client Services Manager

I have joined the AdvicePlus Financial Solutions team as the Client Service Manager, assisting the Financial Planners with reception and administration tasks. This is a new career path for me after working for many years in housing based services. I am dedicated to our clients and will ensure that all clients are greeted and assisted in a helpful and friendly manner.

I was born and raised in the New England area and have been in the Lismore since 1994. Outside of work I like to spend time with my family & work on our little farm. I love the outdoors, especially kayaking, spending time in the garden and time at the beach. I also love to travel, which I cannot wait to get back into!
