Our military experience has taught us that managing finances isn’t always high up on the priority list, and we understand. Complicated pay structuring, allowances and limitations on superannuation make it tricky. Plus, your job means high pressure and challenging environments so down time is precious.

Good financial planning is crucial in maximising wealth. Managing money is a balancing act no matter what stage of life you’re at.

Unfortunately, financial planning services can be expensive. Here at Recon Finance our aim is to facilitate access to affordable, quality financial planning advice for all ADF members.

We think you deserve to be rewarded for your service. Helping you achieve financial security and freedom is our way of giving back.

Our Team

Rowan enjoyed 12 years in the army between 2000 and 2012. He is proud to have family members who have served in both World Wars. His Dad is a Vietnam Veteran who is active within DVA.

Having undertaken a degree in finance and financial planning and with experience in the finance sector, Rowan is well placed to head up the team at Recon.

Seeing firsthand the challenges of military life and a lack of good advice to navigate the unique pay structure of the ADF, Rowan saw an opportunity to give some back.

Recon Finance and Recon Finance Taxation aim to get you the best return on your tax, help you grow your assets and ensure you’re looked after now and when you finish your service.
