Remedy Financial


Louise Drolz MAppFin GradDipFP BBus SSA
Managing Director and Practice Principal
Louise has 26 years experience in finance and banking, firstly as a derivatives trader and then in renewable energy, environmental finance and regulatory affairs consulting.

Louise’s interest in financial planning grew from her own experience, in which she found that much of what was passed off as financial advice was actually a sales pitch for financial products. She felt that she and others like her could, and should, do a better job. So rather than sitting back and complaining about the flaws in the industry, Louise decided to train as a financial planner and build her own firm.

In mid-2007 Louise began a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning which she completed in early 2008. She has been a financial planner since mid-2008 and Principal of Remedy Financial since January 2009. In 2011 she did further study to attain a Master of Applied Finance. Her special area of interest is in behavioural finance and, specifically, the study of cognitive processes (heuristics) that influence personal financial decisions.

Louise is a SPAA accredited
SMSF Specialist Advisor™ and mother to three boys.
