One of Australia’s most highly respected financial and housing market analysts.

In his professional career, Pete qualified as a Chartered Accountant in London, and was previously a Director at the ‘Big 4’ accounting firm Deloitte.

Pete walks the talk when it comes to investing, and he gratefully parked his career in accountancy, having achieved financial independence at the age of 33, as detailed in his best-selling first book, Get a Financial Grip: a simple plan for financial freedom.

Pete is uniquely positioned to comment on housing markets as the co-founder of an active property buyer’s agency with offices in Sydney, Brisbane, and London, combined with his unparalleled ability to deliver powerful, data-driven market analysis.

Media & Hedge Funds

He is regularly featured in the mainstream television and print media in Australia and internationally. Pete is highly sought after by international hedge funds, institutional, and sophisticated investors consulting for his monthly market reports and tactical insights.

Public Speaking

Pete is also in demand as a public speaker and commentator, appearing at high profile events including the flagship UBS European Conference in London.

Pete lives in New Farm in Australia with his wife and two children, but is often spotted on the beaches of the Queensland Sunshine Coast, as well as in England (when the weather permits).

He now writes a daily blog here with 1½ million hits to date.
