Christopher Bates has been a financial planner since 2007. His first four years he worked through the GFC in London and part of which was at Royal Bank of Scotland when it went under. He has been advising for 5 years back in Australia now and has his own advice business – Canopy Private. He is fiercely passionate about transforming the hated industry to a trusted profession but also believes the financial planning industry will die in it’s current form for the better. You may find him a bit blunt and ready to disrupt, but he feels it’s important you know the truth about where the industry is heading.
