Bernard OConnor has been in the broking industry for over 25 years, including 12 years in futures broking for corporate and retail clients including options, foreign exchange, fixed interest and commodities. In the past 13 years he has been a broker in equities, options and warrants. After leaving Citigroup about two years ago, he set up his own firm Akambo Private Wealth with two financial planners, which now operates under its own AFSL licence, broking shares for retail equity clients along with broader strategic financial planning advice under a wrap platform. Wrap clients use direct shares rather than managed funds to enable flexibility, tax benefits and more appropriate money management (using technical analysis principles).
