Adam Ordelman

Adam has over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry and has worked in senior management positions with some of Australia’s largest banks (ANZ, CBA) and financial institutions (Colonial, Adelaide Bank/Leveraged Equities, Challenger) before taking on his own advice practice in 2008. Sustained Advice was born out of this business on 12 December 2012. The core business focus is supporting clients over the longer term, through a personalised financial relationship. In recent years (2014 – 2018), Adam also held the role of Responsible Manager/ Partner for a medium sized boutique financial planning business (Pinnacle Wealth Management) but this responsibility ceased in late 2017, with Adam joining Fitzpatrick. This was due to his desire to free up more time for clients, focusing on delivering the best outcomes for all clients of Sustained Advice Wealth Architects.

Personally, he is married to Trudy and they have two teenage sons, Aiden and Jake. Have a strong focus on sustainable living and community values, they designed and built their own eco/sustainable home and love frequently travel to see the world. He has twice completed the 100km Operation Flinders (formally Trailblazer) event, raising money to help the kids of Operation Flinders. As a keen distance walker and Adam has a personal goal to complete various pilgrimage walks including the Santiago el Camino in Spain.
