We understand that the world of finance can sometimes be a complex, confusing and uncertain one. We help provide you with clarity to help cut through the noise.
We do this by helping our clients make better financial decisions.
We then partner with our clients to design, build and set in motion their own unique financial life plan that will give them the greatest sense of certainty of living their ideal life, sooner rather than later.
We believe that life success is achieved through rigorous planning that leaves nothing to chance, and by making fully informed financial decisions based on quality advice from qualified professionals who have their clients’ utmost best interests at heart.
We know that life is a journey and that our clients’ circumstances will change over time but we also recognise that the ultimate achievement of our clients’ hopes, dreams and aspirations will necessitate ongoing attention and that is why we meet with our clients regularly to monitor their progress and to help keep them on track.
At Andrew Rowan Wealth Management we are genuinely focussed on, and work hard to help our clients to live a better life.
Andrew is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and holds a Diploma of Financial Planning and is a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA).

This is his story
I have been involved in business all my working life. I remember working in the family business as a 10 year old, and the talks around the dinner table as my parents discussed the challenges of running a small business.
After working in the family business for a number of years, I left to pursue a career in the insurance industry and in 1993 discovered what has been my passion ever since; Financial Planning.
Outside business, family, friends and community occupy my time.
I am a father to two wonderful daughters, and grandfather to three fantastic grandchildren. These little guys bring something unique and wonderful to my life.
I am married to Ebony, and have a fur child, “Jetta” the Whippet.
I have been involved in the Community through my work as a Rotarian, where for 16 years I was a member of the Wendouree Breakfast Rotary Club and served as President in 2012/13.
I served on the board of Commerce Ballarat for 5 years, and was the Chair of that organisation for 3. Through this organisation, I had the opportunity to speak on behalf of, and advocate for small and medium size business in Ballarat and surrounds. I am currently on the Judging Panel for the Commerce Ballarat Federation Business School Excellence Awards.
Serving in the community, allows me to give something back, particularly in this wonderful city of Ballarat, where I have lived since I was 8.
But my life is not all about work. In my spare time, I enjoy the company of friends, and yes I do enjoy a beer at the pub with my mates. I also enjoy the membership of the Wine and Food Society where we enjoy Ballarat’s fantastic cuisine and wines of the club cellar, and also where I am the clubs current Wine Master.
I try to stay as fit and active, I attend personal training gym sessions at Ben’s Army Gym, and I also ride my bike and walk the lake whenever I can.
I enjoy testing and challenging myself, both mentally and physically. In this aspect, I have walked the 100km Oxfam walk 5 times (completing 4), and ridden the ‘Bay in a Day’ 200km bike ride 3 times, among other things.
I have had a passion for photography since I was very young. You can see some of my images here……. my photo’s
Having said all that however, the one thing that I particularly enjoy in my life is the relationships that I build over the years with my clients.
I also barrack for Collingwood!
