Senior Technical Specialist

Personal

Jennie grew up on her family’s sheep and cattle property near Winton in Western Queensland, and experienced both the highs and lows of extreme weather conditions and a remote lifestyle. Her theory is what doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger!

Her interest in investing started in primary school days when she received a small inheritance. After convincing her family it was a valid investment she purchased 15 beef cows, and every year selected 30 calves from the property. Following the first sale of steers, she decided diversification was important. She recalls the look of shock on the face of the local bank manager when whilst barely able to see over the counter she made her first term investment with AGC.

Jennie enjoys travelling and experiencing new cultures, and has visited many of the civilised, historical and remote areas of the world. Currently her focus is helping her teenage son to achieve his goals and aspirations for school and golf, encourage his love of travel, and for him to learn the value of saving and investing his lawn mowing money for the future. (He now has a small managed share portfolio!).
