Matthew Illana has worked in Financial Services for 15 years, starting his career in Business Banking before moving into Financial Planning in 2006. Matt commenced within client services, then moved into para planning before his first role as a financial adviser in 2008 with a major bank. Since then, Matt has worked in various boutique financial planning businesses as a senior financial adviser before commencing his own financial planning practice, MPL Wealth Management in 2017. MPL Wealth Management is part of a broader network of like-minded professionals which encompasses tax and accounting, mortgage broking and estate planning to ensure total financial solutions for all clients thus providing peace of mind.
Matt provides advice to clients in all areas of financial planning including risk protection, wealth creation, superannuation, SMSF, retirement planning, Centrelink, estate planning, cash flow analysis and goal setting. Matt strongly believes in building long- term personalised relationships with all clients so he can better understand what is important to them.
Everyone’s goals and objectives are different, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Matt understands what may be important to one client might not be important to another. Matt will formulate specific strategies and then tailor a financial plan exclusively to each individual client’s needs, enabling them to achieve the specified outcomes they desire.
Matt holds a Bachelor of Banking and International Finance from Flinders University (2005), a Post Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning through FINSIA (2008) and he has attained specialist knowledge accreditation in Derivatives (2008) and Self Managed Superannuation Funds (2013) through KAPLAN.
Matt married his wife Sharleene in 2016 and has a young family. They love travelling overseas, experiencing different cultures and were even married in a small town in Spain where his father was born. Matt, and the MPL Group, are also actively involved in supporting local events in the western suburbs of Adelaide and enjoy giving back to the community.
