About Amanda Cassar™

Amanda is a writer, dreamer, author, blogger, regular traveler, business owner, friend, mother, wife and philanthropist.  She loves good food, great wine, the company of her friends and family and a fabulous pair of heels.  She totally believes that life is meant to be lived and has trekked the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda to see the endangered Mountain Gorillas, has gone scuba diving from Lake Malawi to the Cook Islands and is currently working on getting her motorbike licence.

Amanda is also the sole Director of Wealth Planning Partners, a financial advisory firm and Trusted Aged Care Services, helping families navigate the maze of Aged Care. She is a proud supporter of the financial services industry and a champion for raising financial literacy levels.

Amanda is a member of four industry organisations, and has voluntarily taken the Banking and Finance Oath.  Along with being a Premium Member and event partner with Business Chicks, she is a proud supporter of the charities The Hunger Project and Hands Across the Water.  People often ask ‘how do you do it?’  And the truth is, with a great support network of friends, family and team. 

Amanda seeks to turn the complicated into something simple, that everyone can understand, breaking down the complex into plain English.  At the age of 18, she started work in a small financial advice firm, and ten years later, started advising herself and rebranded the business to become Wealth Planning Partners.  Thirteen years after that, she bought the business in its entirety, having by then completed her Masters in Financial Planning and raised her two children on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Amanda has released her first book, Financial Secrets Revealed, if you want to learn from the experts and from others who have been there before, you need Financial Secrets Revealed.  for more information click here.

As a passionate philanthropist, Amanda also wants to make a difference. She sits on the QLD Development board of The Hunger Project Australia, and has twice been a Tripper with visits to Uganda and Malawi under her belt also.  And if India becomes available, she’ll be there in a heartbeat!

Amanda is a keynote speaker and regular panelist at industry events who has been featured by the Association of Financial Advisers, AFA Inspire, TAL, Conexus Financial and Financial Standard.
