About Me

Hi, I'M Louis


While I’m not working directly on my clients’ advice, I can be found researching and working on my podcast, or developing financial education and literacy resources.

My Story

Having always been passionate about personal finance and investing, my focus is on helping others obtain their own financial freedom. I have been advising, educating and helping people reach their goals for over 6 years and founded Acute Finance with this in mind. We specialise in helping our clients achieve their own financial success through focusing on their goals.

The journey to financial independence is paved with one correct choice after the other. The better your ability to make correct choices consistently, the more likely you will be to reach financial independence. 

My granddad was my first inspiration to start learning about money and investments. He taught me from an early age the lessons of work hard, not wasting your money, investing in quality assets and reinvesting the income. He also showed me first hand that a first-generation immigrant could go from nothing, to owning a business and being financially secure. 

So, we all have the ability to create for ourselves the lives we want. It just takes knowing what you want, a detailed action plan, some perseverance and the right mindset.

Clearly explained, honest, prompt and professional

“Louis came highly recommend to us. After experiencing his honesty, promptness, and professionalism, we too can not recommend him highly enough. Everything was by the book, and we were never pressured in to any products or services. Everything we looked at was clearly explained, with all the options, as tailored to our situation as possible. Once meeting Louis, you’ll realise he is a Financial Adviser because he genuinely enjoys helping people with their finances.”

Gave me confidence and reassurance

“An excellent Adviser, as I find finances hard to understand and Louis explained so well. It gave me confidence and reassurance. So much so that I recommended him to run a course, so others can benefit. I am sure before long he will be so sort after that he will have to turn clients away. I feel it is important for every person to understand finances. Louis was excellent at explaining and answering questions.”

Genuinely doing his best to look after us

“From day one we have, and continue to find, Louis’ approach to his profession commendable. He has always done what he says he will do when he says he will do it, and follows up accordingly. If he has not been sure about something he says so, finds out, and gets back to us. Louis has very good customer relationship skills, good eye contact at meetings. He leaves us with the feeling that he is genuinely doing his best to look after us. We have recommended a close friend to see Louis and he is equally satisfied.”

Efficiency and professionalism is second to none

“Louis has a great knack of making everything easy to understand. As someone who previously had very little understanding of finances and superannuation, Louis’ friendly & reassuring manner puts me at ease, without ever feeling patronised or talked down to. I would not hesitate to recommend Louis to anybody, his efficiency and professionalism is second to none.”

Patience and willingness to assist in understanding investment options

Always made himself available to contact for any questions or queries regarding our plan

“As a recently married couple in our early 30’s we wanted to ensure our finances were headed in the right direction. Louis spent a substantial amount of time getting to know our plans, short and long term financial goals, risk appetite and fine-tuned a strategy that was customized to our situation. He then designed and explained an action plan encompassing many facets such as property, shares and superannuation.

Louis has been great at providing advice and guidance, and has always made himself available to contact for any questions or queries regarding our plan. His assistance in establishing our direction and helping us achieve our goals will place us in a much better financial position, and hopefully an early retirement.

Thank you Louis for enabling us to better plan for the future to achieve financial freedom sooner!”
