AUSTRALIA’S TOP Investment Adviser: The investment advice of a man who has done more than just invest, writes Nick Pidgeon.
The name on the door at Pidgeone’s house in the southern city of Brisbane.
He is the head of a firm called Pidgeones, a name that means “a gentleman with a good heart”.
The company was founded in 1989 and is the world’s biggest fund manager.
Its portfolio is heavily diversified, including shares in oil and gas and real estate.
Its CEO, Tom Pidge, is a former investment banker, and is also a former chief executive of a major financial services firm, Commonwealth Bank.
He also had an interest in the banking industry and helped establish a major bank in Queensland.
“I got a lot of clients who wanted me to buy their shares in companies that were struggling,” Mr Pidge said.
“One day, I saw a couple of their mates in the market and said, ‘If you want to buy that, I’ll help you’.”
“I had a couple who were going through a big loss, and I said, “Hey, I’m a bit concerned about you, because you’re not making a profit.
“Pidgeones has become the global investment banking leader in Australia.
But there are many other firms with a similar name.
Investment adviser Tom Pichi’s portfolio includes companies like American Express, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup.
But Pidgeons is a different type of investment manager, one who does a much broader range of investment advice.”
Tom Pidge has been a very, very successful investment adviser,” said Paul Widdowson, a partner at Pichi.”
He has done a lot to help the industry in Australia and overseas.
“The biggest names in the industryThe first company Mr Pichi started was Australian Capital Group, which he sold in 1997.
The next year he bought and rebranded the Australian Capital Network.
It has since become the country’s largest investment network, managing $8.6 trillion in assets.
Its chief executive, Paul Wollaston, is also one of the countrys most successful investment bankers.
He has been in the role for 13 years, and in that time he has done deals worth $1.6 billion.
His son, Peter, who was also in the business at the time, is now in charge of the business.”
The most important thing about the Pichi name is that it means the world to me,” he said.
In 2001, Pichi merged the Australian Strategic Advisors and the Pidgeona Group to form Pichi Group.
The Pichi group has grown into one of Australias biggest investment advisory firms.”
They are one of those firms that, you could say, are the world leaders in the sector,” said Dr Wollaston.”
If they did the research, they would know that their investments were going to be a huge success.
“In 2016, Pidgeón sold his Australian Strategic Group to the German group, IG Farben.
Mr Pichi said the deal was a good one for both parties.”
It was a very good strategic investment for both of us,” he explained.”
For me personally, it was a really good opportunity to make a return on my investment in the Australian business.
“The business was a success.
The portfolio went from $1 trillion to $8 trillion in investment in just seven years.
It was also one that brought great rewards, with Pidgeoner’s portfolio bringing in about $5.6 million a day in the last two years alone.”
There’s always an opportunity to grow and diversify,” he says.”
In this case, I had the opportunity to go through a number of acquisitions and acquisitions to expand the portfolio.
