Let us find the Best Financial Planner for your Needs and Situation.
Multi-award-winning Certified Financial Planner Troy Macmillan created his boutique firm TWD because he wanted to do financial advice differently. Uncomfortable with the traditional approach to financial advice, he was inspired to create change so that he could deliver a greater client experience, where everyone felt seen, heard and valued.
Early in his career, Troy knew it was impossible to wear so many hats and deliver value, so he developed a new advice model to ensure better outcomes for more Australians. In order to be the best adviser possible, Troy knew he had to focus on his clients – their challenges, their complexities, what they valued, what they wanted, what they needed. He created specialised tiers to meet the needs of all Australians, from those starting their wealth journeys, to those with more financial complexity, to those of significant wealth who require a more concierge service.
Meanwhile, he assembled another group of expert investment analysts and advisers to deliver on the investment side; one whose job was just to study the markets, analyse portfolios and build investment strategies each day.
Not content to leave it there, he added an investment committee – a senior, all-star line-up made of up some of Australia’s most respected and revered asset managers. The Committee meet regularly to discuss, research, probe, question, debate and agree on the very best recommendations and guidelines for all clients going forward.
The model, which is built on a one-fee approach committed to providing value over a 12-month period, has been a gamechanger. With some of the best investment analysts in the country on hand, ready to jump into any meeting, TWD can truly offer unsurpassed, tailored investment propositions. Couple this with dedicated advisers, who truly care about what people value, and a superlative Committee of asset managers overseeing it all with an expert eye, and TWD consistently delivers superior outcomes to all Australians.
The model has been rewarded with some of the most prestigious national awards in the industry, including AFA Australian Adviser of the Year in 2011, Professional Planner Best Practice in 2013 and even a Telstra Small Business award in 2014.
TWD is also the reigning AFA Australian Practice of the Year.
Troy is recognised as one of the most experienced, progressive, friendly and trusted advisers in the country, while his outstanding TWD team is well known for its warm, dedicated approach and commitment to excellence.

In 2020 he was named Certified Financial Planner® Professional of the Year – a highly coveted national Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) award. He received that award in recognition of the exceptional work he does as a CFP, but also an individual who goes above and beyond to deliver outstanding results for clients and give back to the community.
FPA CEO Dante De Gori CFP® said:
“Zacary exemplifies our FPA membership as a modern professional financial planner who is client dedicated, university educated and an experienced CFP professional. Zacary’s passion for the value of advice and his confidence shone through his presentation to the FPA Awards judges. He’s an incredible role model for young financial planners.”

In 2018 and 2019 his work with Leading Forward was recognised when he was awarded the FPA Community Service Award sponsored by Future2.
Key Awards, Memberships and Qualifications
A few years ago, Dick and I were financially desperate. We are intelligent but were so ignorant we’d managed to unnecessarily lose vast amounts of our superannuation with the help of one of the major banks.
We were recommended to Zac and are delighted with what he has helped us to achieve. To begin with he has taught us, patiently and appropriately, to understand money. He has also achieved for us what we thought was no longer possible – a comfortable, if not lavish, income. He ensures we fully understand everything he suggests and takes no action until he is sure we understand and agree.
We particularly appreciate the way he treats us with respect while being very approachable and patient.
We wish him all the best.

Any problem is never too much, and he handles any query without fault, providing highly professional and solid advice in a friendly manner. I couldn’t recommend him high enough to anyone looking for better and more secure financial outcomes.”
~ Keith Claymore
“We were introduced to HPH Solutions approximately two years ago and Zacary Leeson was one of the first HPH team members we were introduced to. From that first meeting, Zacary has made my wife and I feel relaxed. He has a down to earth approach when dealing with our retirement investments.
Over the two years we have known Zacary, if we had any questions all or required any information, he would always have the time to explain any issue we had. He has a good knowledge and understanding of the Retirement Investment field and keeps up to date with the changing markets.”

Beverly Harvey Certified Financial Planner
Beverly Harvey began her career working with Social Security/Centrelink delivering support to people in need in a regional office. This identified a natural interest in helping and supporting people whilst they were dealing with their own personal struggles. With an inclination for methodology and problem solving it was an organic transition to commence working in financial planning. This transition was supported by the achievement of a Bachelor of Business and cemented by the rigorous study as a Certified Financial Planner and now 11 years working in the profession.
Why Financial Planning for you?
It is an exciting new direction for professionals to take and the opportunity to help ordinary Australians navigate the complexity of a changing financial landscape is a source of pride. To be able to share in people’s dreams and aspirations, analyse and demonstrate the pathways to make this successful and the finally see the ultimate purpose come to fruition is very rewarding. It can be difficult to be an expert in everything and still have time for yourself and the things that matter, – that is where I would like to step in.
It surprised me some years ago to realise that our profession is still very young in contrast to other more well-known and established advice experts. I look forward to being a part of the growing evolution of advice services that is for and about the clients that it was created for. This includes building confidence that we are here to deliver on our core values of putting our clients first, acting with integrity, providing our services objectively and with fairness.
