Chris Browne

In 2005, Chris Browne founded Financial Design for Life – a company that provides specialist financial planning advice for Gen X and Y. His business has since grown to include three full-time and two part-time staff, with $75m in funds under management and $1.5m in-force risk premium.

Chris lives in Melbourne with his wife and two children. He is a diehard Hawthorn Football Club fan who has a weakness for golf and long lunches. He also does a considerable amount of volunteer work in developing countries.

Chris believes that winning the AFA Rising Star Award has made him more confident in his financial planning ability. He also credits his involvement with AFA and ING Australia for improving his awareness of issues beyond his immediate business.
