Sam Ponte


DIP FP, ADV DIP FP, DIP Mortgage Lending, FPA Practitioner, Bus/FIN ADV Dip
I have been a Financial Adviser for over 10 years and I am a member of the Financial Planning Association and was a leading financial adviser for Westpac and CBA. I was awarded Financial Planner of the Year in 2008 by Commonwealth Financial Planning. My expertise and knowledge is built on a holistic approach of trust, honesty , integrity, hard work and open communication with all involved.
As a leading Financial Adviser I have been privileged to work with clients from all walks of life, from saving for their first home to creating complex business and high net worth wealth strategies. I believe I have succeeded when my clients succeed through achieving their personal and lifestyle objectives.
In 2009 I founded Logic Financial Advisers, I began with four walls and one telephone line. With the fundamental vision to follow my passion and purpose to build a company that will deliver quality financial advice to every day families as I believe financial advice should not be on offer for the privileged few.

At Logic Financial Advisers the “relationship” is 1st and we are the best when it comes to building quality and long lasting relationships with clients. We deliver a service that is 2nd to none and are now supported and work in conjunction with various specialists which allows us to facilitate a full, holistic financial plan including finance, accounting, legal and property advice as well as our core services, these areas are supported by an experienced and qualified team of advisers and client services managers.

I have been working in the Financial Services industry for just on 20 years. I never studied, i have no letters after my surname, but I have 20 years of life experience within the industry, perhaps I should put the letters ‘LIFE’ after my surname. Starting in a microfish factory at a Bank, to Call Centres, to Reception, to Admin Support, to Paraplanner Support, to Complaince Officer, to Personal Assistant, to Executive Assistant, to Office Manager and finally at my current role within Logic. The past 20 years has shown me all aspects of the industry. An industry that I love. I enjoy working with clients. Starting something with a client and finishing it to the best of my ability. I like that in some small way I am part of clients achieving financial and lifestyle goals. After working hard I strongly believe that we should all be able to retire well. I enjoy speaking with clients and being the first port of call in any circumstance. I love to build relationships with peers, colleagues, clients, external parties, Insurer’s. I think the thing that I love the most is the relationship building.
