Welcome to Hudson

Brisbane's Financial Advisers & Planners

Since 1992 we’ve managed the wealth and provided financial services to thousands of Australians.

Passionate, Family based financial services

Hudson is a passionate, family based financial services firm based in Brisbane. We are not licensed through the providers of financial products, which allows our firm the objectivity to select the most appropriate solutions available market-wide. Holding our financial services license gives us greater capacity to put clients first, effectively removing potential conflicts of interest.

With convenient face to face meeting options available in Brisbane, as well as the flexibility of video conferencing, we make our services available wherever you are. We have clients reaching Perth, Tasmania, North Queensland and everywhere in between.

Hudson offers a level of personal service that bigger corporations and super funds cannot deliver. Our team work closely so that we interact with you as part of our community, not as an account number.

The best time to plant a tree was yesterday, the 2nd best time is today. We focus on building long-term relationships and strategies built on trust and value. Contact us to find out more.

Our Process

Initial Consult

This is where we get to know you and what matters most in your life. We take the time to identify your needs, objectives, financial situation and timeframes. We then confirm how we can help navigate your financial journey with you.

Create Your Stategy

At this stage, we will ask you to fill out a Personal Financial Profile and a risk profile. Your adviser will then analyse the information provided and will develop an appropriate strategy. A fee will be quoted and agreed upon at this stage and will depend on the complexity of the proposed plan.

Investment Committee

Introducing Hudson’s investment committee. Hudson Financial Planning maintains an approved product list which we hold an open license for, allowing us the freedom to choose any products that we deem appropriate. 

Our internal investment committee meet once a month, and our external asset consultant, Michael Furey, from Delta research, meets with us once a quarter, to discuss financial product research and the economy. This is then used to carefully select and maintain an extensive list of approved products (APL) for our Advisers to use when providing personal advice. 

We also have clients with Hudson model portfolios and these meetings determine the asset allocation for these portfolios. Our research is backed by Lonsec and Morningstar in addition to our in house team.

Our strategies are guided by long term value creation and by looking ahead towards the future of societal and business transformations.
Investing is about having insight, diversity of views and constructive discussion around big investment options. Anticipating big change over 10 years means having a long term outlook. An example of this would be AI technology and companies committed to 0% carbon emission.

Our investment committee consists of Juanita Wrenn, Ivan Fletcher, Melissa Grimshaw, Isaac Robinson and Michael Furey.

Hudson Investment Committee
Economics Team

Economic Committee

Introducing Hudson’s economic committee. Hudson Financial Planning maintain an in-house economics team. We meet quarterly to discuss economic conditions for household and corporate balance sheets. We discuss what history might suggest for financial markets and where areas of vulnerability may lie, such as private credit, commercial real estate, bank loans, interest rates, the Aus dollar, equity markets, bond markets and international markets.

An example would be; if we believe that growth and inflation has peaked, and we see greater recession risk than markets are pricing in, this supports a positive outlook for fixed income returns.

The impact of monetary policy, fiscal policy and depletion of excess savings will play out at different speeds among different countries. By discussing the economic conditions of different countries, it provides an overview for which the investment committee can make decisions on the financial markets.

Our Economic Committee consists of Juanita Wrenn, Brendan Gilmour, Isaac Robinson and Kris Wrenn.
