Adrian Fodera

Private Client Adviser

With a passion for great service and strong communication skills, Adrian joined UniSuper Advice in 2019.

After witnessing the value his parents received from having a financial adviser on their side, Adrian followed his desire to support Australians in making confident financial decisions.

Adrian transferred his relationship-building skills gained from owning a small business to a Financial Planning Academy under a career change scholarship. His commitment to becoming a professional led Adrian to commence a Master of Financial Planning and enter the financial services sector at a boutique firm specialising in retirement strategies. He soon found that helping clients gain clarity and confidence around their retirement is where he could offer the most value.

With a deep understanding of the tax system and broad application of strategies, Adrian will clearly identify areas to help you achieve your goals.

Adrian has a young family residing in Sydney and he enjoys getting outdoors to swim and play basketball.
