Meet Our Team

He has been in Australia now for more than 25 years, and has spent at least a dozen of those years within the investments arena.
As the founder of Oracle, he based it around two main principles; firstly, that there was a huge proportion of the population, (especially the blue collar working population), whom had no idea that; as he puts it, “You do not have to be rich to make money for yourself and your family”, and secondly, that “The client will always come first”.
