Louise Brogan is the founder, co-owner and managing director of All Money Matters and co-founder and co-owner of Your Life Your Money.
Her ‘on the job MBA’ started at the ‘ripe old age’ of 15, working as a junior and on the trading floor of the Stock Exchange during school holidays. Once out of school, she studied and worked in the accounting then stockbroking industries, giving her extensive experience in investment advising.
She worked directly on the trading floor with her clients, ran her own investment consultancy business and was one of five women members of the Australian Stock Exchange.
After going through the booms and busts of the 1980’s and 90’s, Louise left stockbroking to work with a leading company in the alternative health industry. There she set up and managed their financial management systems until starting All Money Matters in 1994.
During 2002 and 2003, whilst still running All Money Matters, she co-managed the family country pub, building it back up for sale.
She has a keen interest in property and development, being a part of a syndicate which developed and sold a 200 unit property on the Queensland Whitsunday Coast. The next development was a smaller commercial build in Gympie, Queensland. It comprised a Shell/Coles Xpress service station and a small retail complex.
She continues to be an involved and passionate investor; managing and growing her share and property portfolios and thoroughly enjoys sourcing further investment opportunities.
This, plus years of counselling and psychotherapy study, gives her a solid foundation for an integrated approach to money issues, money management and investing education.
