AVANT-GARDE FINANCIAL SERVICES
Chris Guy founded Avant-Garde Financial Services in 2007, and he’s since built the Avant-Garde Financial Group, which includes Avant-Garde Mortgage Brokers and Avant-Garde Insurance Brokers.
Guy has achieved just over $400,000 in GWP in the 12 months since Avant-Garde Insurance Brokers was established. He has managed 20 insurance claims (including one of considerable complexity) and is now negotiating an exclusive market/product with a Lloyd’s broker.

He is a strong believer in education, his own qualifications including a Bachelor of Business (Admin), a Master of Business (Financial Planning), and a Graduate Diploma of Arts (Political Science), in addition to his Tier 1 accreditation.
Guy is a member of Deakin Prime’s Financial Services Advisory Group, which is currently looking to improve the quality and importance of continuing professional development programs throughout the financial services industry.
