About Tom Ellison

Before becoming an award-winning financial advisor and stockbroker, Tom Ellison was a policy advisor and Financial Information Service officer for Australia’s Department of Human Services, so there’s not much about retirement planning he doesn’t know about.

He’s also worked as a journalist, financial analyst and managing editor of The Barefoot Investor newsletter.

These days, as a writer and communications consultant, Tom works with businesses and superannuation funds to help turn complex issues into words that most people can understand.

He also runs a financial education business, The Naked Investor, which aims to help everyday Australians learn more about investing, understand how super works, and unravel the complexities of the share market. The Naked Investor publishes a subscription-only newsletter for investors ready to get started in the share market.

When time permits, Tom’s putting the finishing touches on two books – Super Made Sexy, and Three Chickens and One Dog (Planning the Perfect Retirement).

Although he’s now a resident of Queensland, he still calls Tasmania home.
