Simon Barlow

Director

Married to Nicole with four teenage sons and a Groodle named Kodi.

I love what I do and that is to help people manage their finances and achieve their goals.

Every day is exciting as we face new challenges both personally and professionally and the thrill of trying to solve them in the best possible way is what makes me come back each day!

Meeting new people and listening to their stories is what exhilarates me so feel free to engage with us and see if we can assist you to reach your goals, whatever they may be!

When I am not working, I am with my partner, Nicole and our four teenage sons. Following them in their sporting endeavours and walking our Groodle, Kodi, seems to fill most of my time outside of the office.

Simon provides financial advice services through his company Phillow Pty Ltd (ABN 46 650 170 335) trading as Armstrongs Financial Advisers.

Georgie Phillips

Director

Georgie’s career in the Financial Planning industry began in the late 1990’s and has seen her move up through ranks from Paraplanner, Adviser, obtaining her CFP before starting her own business on her return to Albury in 2008.

Helping people with their financial goals has always been front and centre with Georgie and a short stint away from the industry made her realise that this is the industry that she loves and is passionate about.

This then resulted in her joining forces with Simon and the subsequent purchase of Armstrongs Financial Advisers was inevitable.

Married to Adam with two young children, Archie and Ruby, Georgie has a love of cooking, singing and travelling.
