The People at Sanders Financial Planning
Michael is the Owner Manager of Sanders Financial Planning along with his wife Meredith. His involvement in the financial planning industry came about as a result of Meredith’s employment in this industry since 1976. Michael has an accreditation as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) with the Financial Planning Association. This means he has a commitment to ongoing study to keep abreast of industry trends. His office role is organising strategies with clients and ensuring that all the members of staff work as a caring team.
Outside of work Michael reads, likes fishing, has an involvement with the Cockburn Powerboat Association and loves holidays with his wife and family, caravanning or camping along the coast.
Luke commenced with Sanders Financial Planning in April 2005. He began with filing and administrative duties.

Once Luke has completed his Masters, he will then pursue his Certified Financial Planning Accreditation. Currently, his chief role is the Para Planner/Financial Planner (research analysis and computer modelling). He is a big believer in putting into practice for himself, what Sanders Financial Planning advises others to do for themselves.
Luke lives with his wife and kids in their home in Marangaroo. He has a healthy obsession with fishing (at times it can take over his life). Luke plays football for his local football team Ballajura and follows the mighty West Coast Eagles in Aussie Rules football. Luke also enjoys spending time with his family and friends.
