Financial Planner Profile

Domenic Defilippi FPA®

Principal & Financial Planner-Trend Financial

At Trend Financial we genuinely help our clients make the right financial decision, putting all the pieces in the right places.

We are a Licensee and take on Financial Advisers with the same principles, helping people with knowledge, and the best outcome to achieve their goals.

Having a lending arm with RAMS Homeloans has been another piece of the puzzle, with helping our clients structure, to pay the home off faster or buying an investment property or simply making some home improvements.
Our clients are like family, we are small enough to care and big enough to make a difference.

Looking after all your needs, from Tax reduction strategies to a better retirement.

We don’t sell products, we use the right product to get the best outcome.

How are we different?

  • We are a family-owned business, so we understand your needs and expectations. We are like you.
  • We rely on the trust of our clients and wish to foster ongoing relationships.
  • We are down to earth and can understand both your personal circumstances and the impact of local issues.
  • We are part of the local community and are involved in sporting and community groups.
  • In addition to our common-sense approach, it’s our advice philosophy and process combined with our high level of service.

“In acting as the core adviser my job is NOT to tell my clients what to do but rather listen to what they want for their future and then work TOGETHER to create a plan to help them get there.”
