Susan Wahhab - Partner, SMSF Specialist and Money Mentor

Susan Wahhab is known for listening carefully and asking insightful questions to transform her clients' financial lives.

Susan knows what it’s like to balance business, work and family. When Susan established her financial services practice in 1995, she worked overtime and weekends. In fact, she had no social life for the first seven years while building the practice and continued to run it while having a baby in 2008. But it has been a fulfilling and fruitful journey that serves her clients well.

Susan is the author of the transformational and practical book, Money Intelligence® – Anchored in Values (click HERE to learn more). She is passionate about helping people achieve financial liberation. She truly believes that people can become financially free by developing a healthy relationship with money.

Susan is a leading financial strategist with an uncanny ability to create lateral solutions to complex tax problems. She is a CPA, an Authorised Financial Adviser with Spectrum Wealth Advisers Pty Ltd (AFSL no. 334400) and an SMSF Specialist. Susan does an extensive amount of professional development (more than 100 hours a year, way above the industry standard!) to remain current with changing laws and improve her personal development and leadership skills. She has a deeply caring nature and uncompromising ethical standards.  

Susan is also a passionate peace activist, having been born in the most fought-over city in the world, Jerusalem. Her family can trace their Palestinian Christian heritage back over 2000 years. She has an amazing knowledge of world history and loves reading the philosophy of great thinkers. Susan loves her family and is a great mum. She is a fantastic cook and pedantic housekeeper. She donates generously to charity and sponsors 10 children through World Vision and Compassion in Jesus’ name. Susan should relax more and trust her intuition!
