Personal. Solid. Advice.

And passionate… we’re a little different.

Bruce Sivalingam is your Financial Adviser and the owner and director of Nova Financial Group.

What matters most to Bruce is to succeed for his clients and seeing them achieve stability and their life goals… and for them to have some fun along the way.

He has Honours and Masters degrees in Economics from the University of Western Australia and an Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning.

Bruce believes in a made-to-order approach to financial planning and this is how he seeks to create the required solutions.

With experience gained in various financial organisations in a career spanning more than thirty years, Bruce has advised individual clients as well as large businesses.

Bruce was an international banker in the 1980s, a time of change and innovation in finance. He brought this experience and knowledge to financial planning, where he then forged links and professional relationships with national and international contacts.

Bruce travels regularly, continuing to develop professional relationships and attending conferences in order to bring cutting edge ideas and solutions to his clients.

Bruce’s ideas have been published in The Australian, The Financial Review, The Bulletin, The West Australian, The Economist, The International Herald Tribune and Time Magazine. He also contributed in ‘Talking Point’, a BBC World Service Radio programme.
