Maddern Financial Advisers

A recognised leader in our industry, our expert Independent Financial Advice services help successful individuals enjoy their wealth for life.


At Maddern Financial Advisers, we don't try to be all things to all people. Instead, our boutique Melbourne firm specialises in helping successful professionals with serious lifelong wealth goals.

We want to be your partners in wealth creation, so our approach is personal, specialised and long-term.
We're accredited specialists in self-managed superannuation funds (SMSF), and we also offer accounting services.

Financial Advice

Unlike most Australian financial planners, Maddern Financial Advisers isn't wholly or partly owned by a bank or other financial institution.

This means we're under no pressure to recommend particular products.

We work on a strictly fee-for-service basis – we don't accept commissions or other benefits from product manufacturers. In other words, we don't serve two masters: when you become our client, we work for you and only you.

Our founder Dennis Maddern is in regular demand as a media and corporate speaker on financial matters.

Because of our demonstrated expertise, we hold the elite designations of Certified Financial Strategist and Chartered Financial Practitioner.

We were named Financial Adviser of the Year in 2010 by the Association of Independently Owned Financial Planners and were finalists in the prestigious Optus My Business awards in 2016.

The Director

Our founder, Dr Dennis J. Maddern, is one of Australia's most broadly experienced financial advisers. Dennis Maddern:

  • has had a distinguished academic and business career;
  • has held senior management positions in international companies like Eastman Kodak;
  • is in high demand as a financial commentator and speaker.


We are happy to help any successful or ambitious professional person to reach their wealth and lifestyle goals.

However, over the years, we've developed particular specialties in four professional areas with very specific financial needs.

If you're a doctor or other health professional, a pilot or aviation professional, a sporting professional, or a small-medium business owner, you belong with us.
