Ashleigh Steeles

I am passionate about ethically and socially responsible investing and the potential to make changes through financial advice that can improve our personal circumstances and also the world in which we live.


I work in financial advice as a paraplanner. I have a Bachelor of Commerce (majoring in Financial Planning) and a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in History) through the University of Wollongong, graduating with Distinction in both disciplines. I particularly enjoy research and learning for learning’s sake and applying what I know in creative ways. I enjoy finding ways to align our investment strategies with our personal ethics.
