It is with mixed emotions that we announce Derek’s retirement from Murdoch Asset Management this year. Derek has been invaluable to Murdoch and its clients for over two decades and has contributed significantly to our success.

Derek joined our team in 2001 and brought with him a wealth of experience in the financial industry, having spent 26 years providing expert financial advice to a wide range of clients. His specialist qualifications in taxation, trusts, pensions, and retirement options have been instrumental in helping our clients navigate the complexities of retirement planning.

During his time with us, Derek has advised both private and corporate clients and has been a regular speaker at seminars for industry professionals and private individuals. His approach to financial planning has always been clear, straightforward, and client-focused, earning him a reputation as a trusted adviser.

Derek’s successful career in finance is matched only by his illustrious career in sports, having played for Scotland’s international rugby union team for ten years and toured Australia with The British and Irish Lions. His clients have included many well-known sports personalities, a testament to his reputation as a financial adviser.

Derek is a Chartered Financial Planner and a member of the Personal Finance Society and the Chartered Insurance Institute. He holds the highest qualification available in his field and has consistently provided tailored financial advice to our clients, ensuring that they make the most of their retirement.

While we are saddened to see Derek leave, we are also grateful for the immense contributions he has made to Murdoch Asset Management and our clients over the years. We wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement and hope that he enjoys this new chapter in his life.

To our clients, we assure you that we remain committed to providing the same level of high-quality service that you have come to expect from us. We will continue to provide tailored financial advice and support to help you navigate the complexities of your financial and investment goals.
