When you engage with one of our financial consultants, you not only enlist their individual expertise, you also employ the collective experience of the whole team. That’s more than 25 years of combined experience in lending. The Financiers Group places high value on team collaboration and quality mentorship. This is one of the many aspects that sets us apart. Meet your team.
Starting his career in the banking and finance industry in 2006 with the CBA, Chris moved up to lending less than one year later. He further developed and gained knowledge as a Manager in Personal Lending and in 2012 became a Relationship Manager for the bank. Eager to break out on his own, Chris became an independent mortgage broker in 2014 and in 2015 ventured into creating The Financiers Group with his business partner.
Chris is very knowledgeable in all facets of mortgage broking but his specialty lies in the Relationship Management approach he takes with his clients. He always endeavours to put his clients on the best financial footing, and will always take the time and effort to ensure his clients are advantaged not only until the loan is complete, but as the industry evolves.
Starting a business is a big feat, but to juggle it with mentoring and managing people as well as taking care of your own clients, is certainly monumental. This is the context in where Chris was named an MPA Young Gun in 2016 and finished the year with being a finalist for the Australian Mortgage Awards Quality Young Gun of the Year. In early 2017, Chris was once again nominated a finalist, this time in The Adviser Better Business Awards Rising Star and Best New Comer categories.
Chris holds a Bachelor of Information Systems from the University of Melbourne and a Diploma of Financial Mortgage Broking Management. Along with his experience and qualifications, he is also a sought-after mentor in mortgage broking and along with his business partner, closely mentor the other brokers in The Financiers Group.
When he finds spare time from his busy schedule, Chris enjoys spending it with his young family and catching up with friends.

Joe Xianjun Zhou
Joe started in the finance industry with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Having excelled in a Customer Service role, Joe’s main strength was lending which saw him moving up the ranks into a Relationship Manager role within Premier Banking. In a bold step forward, Joe parted ways with the bank in 2015 and started The Financiers Group with his business partner, Chris.
Specialising in complex structure loans and self-employed clients, many of Joe’s clients return because of his professionalism, knowledge and passion to not only meet their goals but set them up with a solid foundation for the long term.
In just his first full year as an independent broker, Joe achieved much success in qualifying for the Choice Platinum Conference held in Hong Kong in 2016. Regarded as an outstanding performer by his peers, Joe followed this with being named as one of MPA’s Young Guns of 2017.
Joe holds a Diploma and Certificate IV in Mortgage Lending and is one of the mentors at The Financiers Group, imparting industry experience and knowledge to the other brokers in the firm.
