In these uncertain times, making smart investment decisions isn't easy. But in this episode of Get Invested, international property buyer, finance and real estate expert Pete Wargent reveals how to weather the storm and grow in all seasons across multiple assets, global locations over multiple decades.
Pete started his professional career as a qualified Chartered Accountant in London, and was previously a Director at the ‘Big 4’ accounting firm, Deloitte.
Together with his wife Heather, Pete bucked the trend of his self professed socialist upbringing and has been a successful long-term shares and real estate investor with a portfolio today including properties in London, Cambridge, the Home Counties, and elsewhere in the UK.
Over the long term he has also built a substantial Australian property portfolio, today owning properties in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, inner west and at Darling Harbour, as well as investment properties in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Pete walks the talk when it comes to investing, and he gratefully parked his career in accountancy, having achieved financial independence from his investing at the age of 33, as detailed in his best-selling first book, Get a Financial Grip: a Simple Plan for Financial Freedom.
He is now a five time published finance author and all of his books are must reads for any investor.
In 2011, Pete co-founded AllenWargent Property Buyers, an active agency in Australian and UK property markets with offices in Sydney, Brisbane and London helping investors, homebuyers and real estate funds to achieve their goals.
Pete is also the founder and Director of Wargent Advisory, an Australian consultancy firm advising hedge funds and institutional investors.
He specialises in the analysis, dynamics and impacts of Australian household debt, construction trends, and real estate market cycles.
Maintaining a comprehensive database of financial data, analysis and other information, his goal is simple: to find an edge for his clients.
Pete is uniquely positioned to comment on housing markets combined with his unparalleled ability to deliver powerful, data-driven market analysis.
So, as an active investor, property buyer’s agent, strategist and mentor, Pete uses his tried and tested strategies to assist investors in achieving their financial goals through profitable equities and real estate investment.
Pete is recognised as one of Australia’s brightest financial minds and is regularly featured in all of Australia’s mainstream media outlets.
