Senior Financial Adviser
Ry Stanes has built his career in finance from the ground up – starting in the call centre at MLC where he quickly discovered his passion for helping people look after their money. Financial planning was the obvious next step for Ry, and now with 16 years of experience as a financial adviser under his belt, he’s earnt a reputation for integrity and straight shooting with everyone that he works with.
“What I pride myself on – apart from the technical side of the role and the knowledge that I do things correctly for my clients – is the ability to break down complex concepts down for my clients so they can easily absorb them. They don’t walk out of our meetings befuddled by industry jargon.”
With clients at all stages of life, from young professionals to retirees, Ry is adaptable to whatever situation his clients are in. He provides advice on superannuation, investment strategies and ensuring clients have adequate personal insurance so they are protected should the worst happen.
Working directly with clients to solve their unique financial problems is what Ry loves most about his job.
“Every client is different. Every financial situation is a puzzle and it’s about working out how the pieces of the puzzle go together to make things work efficiently for the client.”
Ry loves that Insight puts customers first and that Insight will support whatever he needs to do to get the best outcomes for his clients. Having worked in large financial institutions where the main focus is on risk mitigation at a whole business level, the Insight approach is refreshing and unique in the industry.
Ry’s a real outdoors man who grew up spending most family holidays camping in remote spots along the Murray River in northwest Victoria. These days he loves nothing more than getting his own young family out on the road to ‘rough it’ alongside him.
He also has an appreciation for wine, and has played baseball for most of his life… although these days it’s not so much for the competition but more for the excuse to catch up with friends that he has played with for more than 20 years.
