  • If you could give one piece of advice to the Ben from 10 years ago, what would it be?

    There is no one linear path to success and happiness, you just have to always keep improving and growing.

  • What's your weirdest office habit?

    I talk extremely loudly when on the phone, which doesn’t pan out too well in an open plan office.

  • What's the one thing about you that people would be surprised to learn?

    I grew up on the big island of Hawaii from when I was 4 to when I was 10.

  • If you could have dinner with anyone past or present, who would it be and why?

    My Father, to see if I had done him proud, or Michael Jordan, because he is just a winner!

“There is no greater satisfaction than when a client can see their path to financial freedom. By helping clients understand more about their finances and how to manage and organise them, they are more confident and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that their future is more secure.” – Ben Budge

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

I believe whole heartedly everyone needs to take their wealth and future in their own hands and not just rely on their industry super fund. Financial industry professionals like Ben are key in helping us all achieve the goals we need looking beyond retirement. We were grossly under insured and had a poor idea about what insurance could really do for us as a family. He was so friendly and very approachable…Big tick from us!

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
Having come from a planner where we were very disappointed, it has been a refreshing change dealing with Ben & the team at MWS. They are responsive, helpful, go above and beyond to answer questions and most importantly we have found it easy to understand the finance speak and to actually understand what our money is doing. Thanks for a great experience so far!

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Excellent service! My girlfriend and I were looking for ways to maximise returns to make to most out of our money. We needed someone with more knowledge in the financial sector than ourselves who we could bounce ideas off and come up with strategies that we hadn’t thought of. Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have done exactly that. They have been available for us to ask questions and have been patient with their explanations making sure we understand.
