Initially starting his working career as a commercial and property lawyer in Queensland, Michael Williams eventually found his calling as a Financial Adviser.
He made this decision because he wanted to help clients before they got in trouble rather than sort out their issues afterwards as a lawyer.
Michael had a simple yet powerful vision – to help his clients establish financial well-being and achieve a financially independent future. This was his vision when he first started as a financial advisor, which is still his vision today as the Managing Director of The Hopkins Group (THG).
As the Group’s Managing Director, Michael has led THG’s strategic operations and is an integral member of the Group’s executive board. Since his appointment in 2004, Michael has grown THG from a boutique firm to a multi-disciplinary, end-to-end, holistic financial advisory agency with over 55 staff and an extensive range of service offerings including financial planning, property (management, investments, sales and development), accounting and taxation, mortgage advice, estate planning and SMSFs.
Michael is also an accredited Senior Financial Adviser trusted by our most tenured and respected clients. He gives back to the industry and is currently an active member of the Deakin Advisory board.
