High-calibre Melbourne advisers join Fitzpatricks’ network



April 18, 2017

Two Melbourne-based advisers have aligned under the Fitzpatricks Private Wealth license, further contributing to the number of high-calibre advisers to have recently joined the national network.

Chronos Private partner and principal advisor, Chris Giaouris, says he built Chronos Private in 2016 in order to focus on a more client-centric and evidence-based advice approach.

“I believe financial planning is not solely about investments or strategies, but more importantly it is about helping people make smart choices with their money so they can focus on more important things,” he said. “I was struggling to find a model that suited my ideas about how to best serve the client’s interest. Fitzpatricks’ mirrored our core values of putting the clients’ needs first and foremost.”

Mr Giaouris has specialist knowledge in superannuation, retirement strategies, personal/business risk protection, tax planning and portfolio management and has been providing personal wealth management and financial advice since 2008.
Similarly, Marasea Partners founder, David Marasea says clients are at the heart of everything he does.

“Marasea Partners was inaugurated out of a deep desire to build a more client-centric firm, which aspires to help others achieve their financial and personal goals.”
Mr Marasea is highly-regarded for his dedication to developing and maintaining long-term relationships with his clients.

“Our goal is to know, understand and simplify our clients’ lives. I am very pleased to have found a great cultural fit of excellence and client focus at Fitzpatricks”, he said.
Fitzpatricks Group Managing Director John McMurdo said the business is proud to welcome its new arrivals and bolster its existing presence in Melbourne.

“We welcome each to their new advisory positions at Fitzpatricks. Both advisers embody the essence of our approach: to seek culturally aligned businesses that make a difference to their clients’ lives,” he said.
