Saul Muscardin

Senior Financial Planner

Saul has always been fixated with ‘finding a better way’ – for years that obsession served him well helping business owners improve operations, enhance productivity, and improve their bottom line. These days Saul is proud to help deliver those same kinds of benefits to every-day Australians, helping them optimise their financial lives and improve their financial well-being. Being a passionate investor himself, Saul loves to talk to clients about ‘working smarter, not harder’, building wealth, passive income and breaking the link between time & money (Most peoples relationship with money involves trading their precious time for it… but there is a better way!).

Saul & his wife Aleena got tired of the big smoke (Sydney) in 2014 and moved to the beautiful NSW Far North Coast.... we’re never going back! After Saul stumbled across CHG in 2017 he knew immediately that he had found ‘home’ – a place of talented professionals driven toward the common goal of helping their clients win. A year later he joined the team and couldn’t be happier.

Saul believes that the best client outcomes are achieved by delivering full-scope financial advice
