Ted Richards is super-passionate about making sure Aussies can access affordable investment options – so much so that he made a huge career change to do it.
He certainly knows a thing or two about finance – he holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Masters of Applied Finance and has also studied behavioural economics at Harvard Business School in the US. Ted hosts investing podcast The Richards Report, and works as director of business development at Six Park, one of Australia’s leading online investment services.
If you get a strange sense that Ted’s name seems familiar, you’d be right! Ted played in the Sydney Swans’ 2012 premiership and earned accolades for not only his football skill but his leadership, toughness and sportsmanship.
When he’s not crunching numbers and watching markets movements, Ted still keeps a keen eye on the AFL ladder and loves spending time with his wife Ella, son Beau and daughter Poppy in their hometown of Melbourne.
