Women in Wealth Management with Belina von Knoll

In this episode of The BWA Podcast Show our National Director, Lyn Hawkins interviews award winning Private Client Adviser, Belinda Knoll.

Australia needs more women to choose financial advisory and wealth management careers. That’s a fact. It is also known that female advisers generally do very well in this profession. Belinda will share insights into her career decision and professional journey as a financial planner. This experienced duo will discuss ways we can address the low percentage of Australian women choosing this career option and also why women often delay engaging a financial planner in their own wealth building.

Be inspired by Belinda’s “no nonsense” approach, sage advice and extraordinary experience as an advisor and SMSF specialist.
