Han’s started building visual presentations and interactive tools in-house and using them with his own clients before teaming up with Michael Topper and Andrew Wardle to develop AstuteWheel’s ground-breaking on-line client engagement platforms of Astute Financial Planner and Astute Estate Planner.
Prior to joining the financial planning industry Hans Egger gained valuable experience as a Management Consultant with Price Waterhouse Urwick and as National Marketing Manager for Australian Associated Press (AAP) in its Information Services and Financial Services departments.
