Meet the Team

Helping you achieve financial success…

Spectrum is a family business with a team dedicated to serving ADF personnel.

Spectrum’s principals, Reid and Melinda, are chartered accountants with more than 20 years’ experience serving Defence personnel. The rest of the team are also highly experienced. The Spectrum team know that when you work in the ADF, you move around a lot and have access to special financial entitlements.

The problem is, most finance professionals don’t understand the ADF, so they can’t provide the expert financial and tax advice you deserve. But we specialise in Defence. Even better, we’re a one-stop shop for all things financial, including property investment, home loans and tax advice. That means we never lose sight of the big picture – how to set you up for long-term financial success.
